FBN Securities reiterated their sector perform rating on shares of Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) in a research report sent to investors on Friday morning. The firm currently has a $20.00 price target on the stock.
“According to CEO Whitman, 2012 was a year of diagnosis, 2013 is a fix and rebuild year, and 2014 will be a recovery and expansion year. Revenue declined in all segments except Financial Services Y/Y, and the company has chances of growing in F2014 as Ms. Whitman suggests. However, the company will continue to face challenges from the PC business even in F2014, so we are currently modeling flattish revenue growth next year. We are impressed by the company’s FCF generation ($1.9B) which led to the company reducing its operating net debt level by $1.1B to $4.7B.,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
