The Dell (DELL +1.6%) leaks won't stop. Bloomberg now reports Blackstone has joined H-P and Lenovo in studying Dell's books during its go-shop period, and that Carl Icahn is seeking a $9/share special dividend as part of his leveraged re-cap proposal. Sources suggest H-P and Lenovo were more interested in getting a peek at a rival's books than in making a bid. Shares closed at $14.32. (more on Dell).

    $9 dividend is manner to settle this valuation charade. Let Donald take a "haircut"-he deserves it.

    Of course everyone is looking at Dell's books, how often to you get a chance to see the internal numbers from competitors? Window shopping doesnt mean there are dozens of bidders lined up.

    How often do you get chance to study your rivals books for free? Right after he buys a 6% stake in Dell Icahn calls for a special dividend; fast cash for Icahn. Don't know what Einhorn was thinking when he decided to mess with that guy.
