“For the first time we are seeing sales up in three years, first quarter in twelve, so maybe just tentative steps that we are starting to see, how cost cutting action, how slashing of jobs, but also what we are seeing here is actually luck, this in the second quarter, the PC market has helped not only HP, but also Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), also Intel, all the old guard and Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) is itself one of the Silicon Valley’s oldest companies […],” said Hyde.
