Dell's quarterly earnings report came out where they beat the Street's revenue and profit estimates. It was primarily driven by overseas sales:
International revenue surpassed domestic U.S. revenue for the first time, as sales in the rapidly growing BRIC countries--Brazil, Russia, India and China--expanded 58%. Asia-Pacific and Japan revenue rose 19%, while sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa grew 15%.
Have to give props to my cousin, Jim, who heads Dell Japan and parts of Asia, where he lead them to a solid increase in revenues.
