Widely known as a corporate raider and activist investor, Carl Icahn views himself as a classic value investor. His company describes the Icahn strategy in simple terms:"We seek to find undervalued companies in the Graham & Dodd tradition. However, while the typical Graham & Dodd value investor purchases undervalued securities and waits for results, we often become actively involved in the companies we target."Based on this description, it is easy to understand Icahn's interest in Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), a company with more than $12.7 billion in cash, about $7 a share. Potential bids are about $25 billion for the company. That values the operating business with sales of $55 billion and profits of $2.4 billion at about $12.3 billion, about five times earnings.
