Take a moment to read or re-read this post and comments section from November. HPQ was trading at $11.70, back down to levels not seen since the post-Dot Com crash.
Currently, Hewlett sits at $14.12 after a nice snap back. The issue is whether we have just witnessed a mere oversold bounce destined to fail, or if HPQ truly is (still) a great value down here. Even if it is the former scenario, note how price does indeed have memory. The straight-line move down “into the mattresses,” as I like to say, offered a high probability reversion to mean setup.
Now comes the hard part. Is that monthly hammer-like candlestick printed in November proving to be the bottom?
Feel free to weigh in below.

What part of their core business is still working? With consumer devices trending to tablets, I think their PC business is melting away. What does that leave? Printers, calculators, and servers? I don’t see a lot of high-growth potential there.
