    It's clear that Michael Dell's honeymoon period is over, and that investors are looking for tangible results from the turnaround strategy he has implemented since returning to his namesake company as CEO.

    It was 31 months ago that adidas bought Reebok for $3.8 billion. What adidas was essentially doing was buying the U.S. market that had always challenged them. Reebok had a 20 percent share of that market and the combination of the two would lead, presumably, to a legitimate fight with Nike.

    The theme this week will not be that sales are getting better. No, the story this week will be that the sales decline MAY be slowing or lessening in severity. As we move into the first quarter, how individual companies differentiate themselves by handling their internal management, inventory and SG&A expenses--in other words, the basic administrative cost of doing business--will become increasingly more important.
