Friday, October 5, 2012, 6:13 PM ET"[HP's] balance sheet is a mess, says Sterne Agee's Shaw Wu, who joined other analysts in downgrading the IT giant following its analyst day warning. Though H-P (HPQ -1.4%) officially has a book value of $16/share, Wu suggests it's actually -$2/share after backing out goodwill. Wu's sum-of-the-parts analysis of H-P produces a bull-case valuation of $15/share, but he thinks $10/share is more reasonable. Argus also downgraded H-P, and suggested its job cuts need to go beyond 29K.
