#10: Dell

Dell NASDAQ:DELLYTD Performance: +43%

Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) was left for dead by many investors after crashing from over $40 in 2005 to a low of under $9 in late 2012. But that fall from grace is seen as a buying opportunity by some.

Right now there’s a bidding war for Dell among three groups: Billionaire investor Carl Icahn, Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX) and a consortium of investors including founder Michael Dell, private equity group Silver Lake Partners and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT).

Who knows where Dell stock will wind up in the long run, but the result of this fight to take the company private has been a big pop in share prices.
