Dell (DELL) confirms that Carl Icahn has taken a substantial stake in the company, although the activist investor hasn't revealed the size of the holding. Icahn opposes the Michael Dell-led $13.65-a-share buyout offer and is instead seeking a $9-a-share special dividend as part of a leveraged re-capitalization.

    With all the attention it could go up short term, money talks.Looks like vultures circling wagon to me, Icahn pops in with a 6% stake demanding a special dividend (don't think he's in this one for the long haul)while Dells competitors HP and others are given a free look at their competitors books. Cant imagine that one is to good for employee morale. Michael Dell needs to go, guy is too discredited. Used to be a top notch company, no more, crappy products, equally crappy customer service(which has gotten better but not the AAA they once were). That company used to be a model for how a business should be run, downhill slide for years now
