What have you done for me lately? The most common question of a shareholder...
In the past twelve months:
DOWN: Dell, 63%; Apple, 24%; Intel, 24%; Dell, 13% after buy-out bid; ; Microsoft, 12%; HP, 3%
UP: IBM 4%; Cisco 5%
Since the November 'scare' for the fiscal cliff
DOWN: Apple, 36% from all-time high in mid-Sept; 21% from mid-Nov
UP: Microsoft 2%; Intel, 7%; IBM, 16%; Cisco, 21%; Dell, 60% (with Buy-out bid); HP, 82%
So, despite the analysts and the dismal news, HP shareholders, for a year now, are betting on Meg and the team. You might ask WHY? But that is a different essay
