    • SA Editor Samir Patel: well, I don't think you (or anyone else) can be blamed for not buying. as with all value stocks in freefall, it looked like a falling knife

    • SA Editor Samir Patel: from the research/valuation I've done, it seems you don't really have to even believe in the turnaround to consider it a good value

    • nickbukowski: HPQ is probably worth 28/share right now and will easily get back to 20/share soon. Most of the bad news has come out and been priced in.

    • uavmx: It's been beat down long enough. Probably over corrected as expected. Now it should climb back to a good valuation. Just need some good news
