Dell Computer Corporation (NASDAQ:DELL)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: WEAK BUY

Our WEAK BUY rating was initiated on 8/29/2003. This press release is a reporting of that initial WEAK BUY rating. For our most current ratings, visit http://pr.stockpickreport.com/DELL.htm

Dell Computer designs, develops, manufactures, markets, services and supports a wide range of computer systems.

The recent direction appears to be trending higher for the stock’s volume. In addition, our interpretation of the stock’s stochastic charts point out that a protracted trend in the direction of the recent price-action may not be as probable as a reversal for the stock going forward. Finally, the bias seemed to be to higher ground for the stock in the last week or so.

Our research indicates possible upside from current prices for DELL. However, we do not advise the initiation of new long positions at these prices. Profit-taking may be ahead for DELL.

Qualcomm develops, designs, manufactures and markets digital wireless telecommunications products and services based on the code division multiple access (cdma) technology.

Prices climbed to higher ground for QCOM over the most recent 5 day period. Also, the most recent stochastics reading for QCOM gives our researchers the idea that the potential exists for compelling downward movement in the near term. Finally, the short-term direction looks like it’s getting weaker for QCOM’s daily volume.

Our research indicates significant downside ahead for QCOM. We believe stop/losses should be raised in an attempt to preserve capital.
