Avoid names with hefty PC, server, or printer exposure, says Goldman, lowering its 2013 PC shipment forecast to -6.8% from -3.8% and - pointing at DELL's earnings - warning pockets of price aggression at OEMs could spread.

  • It is always tempting to bet against Goldman recommendations. I am a sceptic and suspect they are on the other side of the trade. Their internal Chinese walls are more like rice paper, in my view. In any event, I don't trust their research timed on the even of HPQ's release.

     

    Everyone knows PC's have been under pressure. What we don't know is how well the newer touch screen devices have been selling or how well HPQ is doing in its enterprise markets.

  • Michael, you were correct: Goldman was on the other side of this trade. Boy, that new Dodd/Frank bill is really holding the Investment Banks accountable for these Shenanigans!
