What are analysts saying about HP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about HP stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "The world’s second largest PC vendor, HP has outperformed the broader market over the last one year. The company recently reported splendid first quarter results driven mainly by strength in Personal System and execution of restructuring actions and productivity initiatives. HP’s efforts to turn around the business have been commendable. The company is working on product innovation and differentiation as well as enhancing the capabilities of the printing business to stabilize the top line. Furthermore, looking at the data compiled by two independent research firms – Gartner and International Data Corporation – we believe that the downtrend in PC shipments have been showing signs of stabilization. Notably, for HP, this was the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year shipment growth following five back-to-back quarters of underperformance. Nonetheless, pricing pressure due to intense competition remains a major concern." (2/24/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "FQ1 results were solid, with a nice revenue beat and modest EPS beat as well; weak gross margin driven by currency and component supply tighthess prevented incremental leverage on expenses. Notebooks, Printer Hardware and Supplies all performed well. Guidance was OK. We liked the continued improvement in execution but are still looking for another entry point. Q1 Beat. Q1 (Jan) revenue reached $12.68B (+5%Y/Y in CC), beating the Street's $11.83B. Q1 EPS reached $0.38 vs. Consensus of $0.37. Lower-than-expected gross margin of 17.7% vs. the Street's 18.5% prevented significant incremental leverage on expenses despite the revenue upside." (2/23/2017)
  • BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "HP Inc. reported positive headline results, and guidance that was largely in line with our/consensus view. Revenue impressed, as both segments beat expectations. PCs showed particular strength, as sales were up 10%'the highest growth rate since 2014. We are updating our PC model with a more moderate outlook for unit declines in 2016 and 2017, but remain on the sidelines on HPQ because challenges in both end markets will prevail. Our FY2017 EPS estimate goes to $1.60 from $1.62, while our FY2018 EPS estimate of $1.68 is unchanged' Revenue was $12.7 billion, well above our/consensus estimates of $12.0 billion/$11.8 billion as both segments outperformed in the quarter. EPS of $0.38 beat our/consensus estimates of $0.36/$0.37, and came in at the high end of guidance." (2/23/2017)
  • Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We expect shares of HP Inc. to be under pressure in the near term, as the results were decent but the outlook was soft. HP’s Personal Systems performance continued to be a bright spot, and it could be a positive lateral read-through for PC or consumer-related stocks, including WD and Seagate. However, disappointing printing trend-lines contribute to a softer EPS guide for the Jan-Q." (11/23/2016)
