Dell (DELL -0.6%) will deliver its FQ1 report on Thursday instead of next Tuesday and EPS will miss estimates, David Faber reports. Though light on details, Faber says annualized operating income will be "well below" the $3B the Street is looking for, and notes weaker free cash flow will hurt the ability of a buyer to lever up the company. Shares are down to $13.44, 2% below Michael Dell/Silver Lake's $13.65 offer price. Update: Dell confirms its FQ1 report will now arrive on Thursday afternoon.
