What are Wall Street analysts saying about HP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HP stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "HP’s efforts to revive the business have been commendable. The company’s focus on innovation, pricing, and marketing and sales activities to trigger demand for its PC and Printing products in the market are apparently paying off. Rising demand for notebooks, desktops and workstations on the back of product innovation and differentiations is benefiting HP in the PC market. It should be noted that the recently-acquired Samsung’s printing business is helping the company in gaining market share in the $55-billion high-end copy-machine market. Nonetheless, the ongoing shift toward tablets and smartphone is a concern. Global trade environment and currency volatility remain other key challenges. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (10/17/2018)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "EPS Guidance ahead of our estimates and consensus; raising 12-month price target to $32, from $29, optionality of 3D printing remains exciting. Sustained PC (~30% of operating profits) profitable share gain powered by differentiated security & manageability within commercial space (see page 2). Sustained printing (~70% of operating profits) growth powered by adjacent market share gains in copier & graphics (see page 2)." (10/4/2018)
