Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HPQ) is a modest gainer Monday, likely finding some traction from largely favorable coverage in a feature in this week’s Barron’s.
The article notes H-P’s costs are down, debt has been slashed, and free cash flow is plentiful. And it cautions: personal computers and printers are in long-term decline; competition in servers is fierce; and overall revenue is slipping, albeit at a slowing pace.
Still, the article suggests HPQ could even return to revenue growth in coming quarters. Shares, recently $32.64, are positioned for 20% more upside over the next year. The 1.8% dividend yield is also shareholder friendly.
In Monday’s trading, the stock has ranged in a narrow $32.67 to $33.10, nearing a test of the upper end of the 52-week range of $19.07 to $33.66.
