For his second "Executive Decision" segment of Mad Money Monday night, Jim Cramer spoke with Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies (DELL) , which just posted an earnings beat of $0.62 per share on a 3% increase in revenues.
Dell said it was a strong quarter for his company, as it makes strides into services. He said 11% of its revenues are now deferred thanks to its many services.
When asked about the company's earnings, Dell explained that everything is now happening in the home, from work and education to entertainment -- and that's led to a surge in consumer spending on technology. Many families are becoming a "one laptop per person" family and Dell is riding that wave.
That's not to say that enterprise spending and the data center isn't strong as well. Dell noted that it is seeing growth in many areas including analytics, AI and 5G networking. Shares of Dell are up 42% over the past 12 months.
We looked at the charts of DELL on Aug. 31 and said to "continue to hold longs previously recommended. Raise stop protection to a close below $58. $90 and $105 are our price targets now."
