If Carl Icahn has bought H-P (HPQ +2.5%) shares, the company isn't aware of it, reports David Faber; he adds H-P hasn't had any talks with Icahn. The notion H-P could be the target of an activist push - perhaps one that would call for a breakup of the company - has been around for a while, and it's logical recent events would heighten speculation about one happening. H-P hired Goldman last year to advise it on how to keep activist investors at bay. (previous)

    Perhaps this rumor was part of Goldman's advice.

    Activist investors should continue to push the executive team, specially Meg to bring better results for the company. As a shareholder I expect more from the Board and its executive team.
