Areas of Interest
As investors await the earnings release, there are a few key areas of interest to keep an eye on:
Dell previously highlighted that customers have been cautious in their IT spending. It will be worth noting if the company provides any insights into the current state of the demand environment. In the last quarter, Dell reported softness in demand across all major lines of business, regions, customer sizes, and most verticals. However, there was an uptick in demand and improved performance for the CSG, storage, and servers business in June.
Investors will closely monitor Dell’s inventory levels for this quarter. In the previous quarter, the company reduced its inventory by approximately $800 million.
