BMC Software (BMC +2%) spikes a little after InformationWeek reports tech giants and P-E investors have expressed interest in buying part or all of the company. The tech companies aren't specifically named, but are said to be from a list that includes Dell, Cisco, Oracle, EMC, and IBM. Activist investor Elliott Associates is pushing for a sale, but BMC has thus far resisted its efforts. Rival Quest Software (QSFT +4%) is rallying on reports Dell is in talks to buy the company.
