  • All I can say is holy crap. These kinds of gyrations are mind numbing.

  • Bad, bad, bad. All I can say is this company is now ripe for a takeover. The best thing HP could do is offer a nice premium to the soon to be depressed FIO price and buy FIO. Great product and good IP could be a huge boost to HP and at a fraction of a cost as that terrible Autonomy acquisition.

     

    Glad I lightened up on my FIO position last year but love the company.

  • Setting the bar low. Why Raise Guidance? The chief scientist is also Apple Co-founder (Apple has always set the bar low for earnings in the past)...Great entry point for long position. I won't be surprised if this stock does shoot to the upside very soon.
