What are you thoughts on what the PPS will do with a internal or external CEO. I would think that obviously an external CEO would push it up nicely but I would also think that a half decent internal one would push it up as well at least a buck. I can't see how it would go down considering right now they don't have an official CEO running the ship. Honest intelligent responses please!!
HP have a strong management team. I think Bradley will be the next ceo, Livermore will be promoted to be the president so they can open up her position for Donatelli. Donatelli will be groomed to be the next ceo. I'll be surprised if this won't happen.
my opinion is that HP will close the year at 33 bucks. There's a ton of confusion internally and they've cut everything that can be cut. They embarked on a flawwed stratigy, cut R and D, and there's a huge amount of worker dissatisfaction.
Who knows, maybe they won't need one if Larry can get the proper financing - and Hurd can take over and integrate it all for him. Best chance for Larry to be #1 literally overnight.
Hopefully they won't be stupid and promote Todd (take all the credit for others work) Bradley
I guess my real question here is whether the stock could actually go down with an internal choice or should it at least go up a bit with any announcement of a new CEO. I would think that we would go up again Monday as speculation will be high that they will announce one before Tuesday analyst meeting.
IMO....internal's worth a buck more pps.
Extenal - if well known and brings goods to the table, maybe $3-6 more pps, but dependent on the persons horsepower.
Now don't ask the prospects of that happening...
hey angry_bitch, how am I a moron for asking an honest question about a stock that I am new too and am trying to get a feel for what may occur. I have 40k sitiing in options here so I think I have a reason for concern as to what COULD happen. I have a BA in Economics from a highly regarded american college and I have made a 140% return on my money in my first four months of trading so insult someone you know and if you want to act like a 10 year old, head over to the SIRI board as you will fit right in. Thanks for anyone with a real answer even those that may be completely speculating. Have a great weekend everyone and let's hope Monday/Tuesday makes us all richer!!
