    HPQ: Wait one week and then sccop it up


    The PE is just amazingly-low at only 4.5 times or so expected earnings in the $4.80 area this year and next.

    Once the window dressing has concluded, it should be a prime buy candidate. PRICE MATTERS!

    • Indeed, there is madness to Alan's method of never, ever taking anything off the table.

      Yet no one needs to more, given the loser's abysmal history of ruinous loss upon loss with inherited money always handed over to us Other People.

    • That is the key. Funds and individual investors routinely count paper profits in computing the return for a quarter, a year, etc. However, they don't have artificial and arbitrary restraints on their ability to sell. If I buy a stock at 30 this morning and it is now 31, I could sell and take the profit. So, if I choose not to I can properly use 31 to value the acoount at the end of the day (assuming a 31 close) knowing that I can sell Monday morning if I choose. But suppose I had a rule that I would not sell under any circumstances unless and until the stock hit at least 40. Can I really say I have a gain from 30 to 31 when I can't take it? The answer is "No" on any fair basis. The gain is ethereal because it cannot be taken and may never be able to be taken.
