Dell Falls After Forecast Misses Estimates: San Francisco Mover

Dell Inc. tumbled the most in six months after its first-quarter sales forecast missed analysts’ estimates, dragged down by lackluster personal-computer demand from consumers and governments.

Dell, the world’s third-largest maker of PCs, dropped 5.8 percent to $17.15, the biggest decline since Aug. 17. Before today, the stock had outperformed the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index this year, which had climbed 8.3 percent.
