Dell jumps in its return to the public market (DELL)

Dell jumped as much as 3.88% to $46 Friday as it returned to the public market.

The acquisition faced strong opposition from billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn, who was VMware's second-largest shareholder.  For Dell, buying back DVMT was actually something of a Plan B. Originally, the company was floating the i...
