11.50 to 18 was a great ride, I'm out after hours. Can't be greedy in the ultimately "dying" business for the next 3-4 years. The biggest concern is that big-boys are now ready with their trigger to sell. This is tacitly indicated by S&P analysts keeping their year-end target still at $13. The implications are: not only they'll unload their holdings now, but might go aggressively short at these juicy levels, thus indirectly full-filling their prophesy. Got into this as the Dec-Jan effect trade and it has run its course now. No point hanging around longer than needed... there are many other fishes to fry. All the best to the rest of the holders.
As expected, getting out after hours was a wise move. This morning it looks like large-blocks (-aka- big-boys) are selling, and small-fries are buying, as usual, after earnings. The action indicates this might start sliding down now (and perhaps will close red for the quarter). I'll revisit around Nov 20th, 2013 again.
The slide down from 30 to 11 was painful, but presented an opportunity for the brave. Glad some made only on the way up. About "dying" business, which part of the server, storage, software, services business is dying? Enterprise PC needs to get in to tablet and Mobile, which HP will make moves in coming months.
