HP Q4 earnings

HP is going to announce its Q4 earnings, and analysts are predicting that they will earn $0.90 per share. This would be a 5.9% increase from the previous year. However, revenue estimates are not looking as good. It is expected that they will see a decline of approximately $1 billion compared to last year, mainly because of their personal systems division, which is responsible for building desktops and notebooks. This division is expected to see a 9.8% decrease in revenue.


Despite the revenue decline, HP wants to reassure the market that they believe demand for their products will stabilize by the end of the year. They also just announced a 5% increase in their dividend, which is when they distribute some of their profits to shareholders. This is meant to help calm any concerns and make investors feel more confident.

HP's stock

Currently, HP's stock has been trading 1.1% lower than last year overall, but it has seen a small gain of 5%. People will be watching closely to see what their actual earnings per share and revenue figures are. HP's positive outlook on PC demand stabilizing may provide some reassurance to investors. However, the decline in revenue from their personal systems division does raise some worries about how well HP will be able to compete in the market for desktops and notebooks.

HP's earnings report

If HP's earnings report confirms the predicted figures, it could further impact their stock performance and how investors feel about the company. The steps HP is taking to address these concerns and increase their dividend could help make investors feel better and lessen the blow of the decreased revenue from the personal systems division. Ultimately, the market will be judging how well HP can adapt to the changing preferences of consumers and still make a profit in the competitive PC market.

    • Nice analysis, but none of these tokens retest their previous ATH or set a new one. $BGB has shown its potential by setting a new ATH and aiming to hit higher in the anticipated bull run. It is another token to include on your watchlist. 
    • Of course, here are a few exchanges with native tokens and their growth over the past 18 months: Binance BNB 239% Kinbase COIN 43% Kraken KRAKEN 194% FTH FTT 84% Uniswap EMU 167% It is important to note that these are only past performance figures and there is no guarantee that they will continue to hold up in the future. However, the growth of these exchanges suggests that their native tokens could be good investments in the next bull period. Here are some additional factors to consider when choosing an exchange token to invest in: Utility: Does the token have any utility beyond just being a store of value? For example, can it be used to pay commissions on an exchange or to receive discounts on services? Liquidity: How easy is it to buy and sell a token? Team: Does the exchange have a strong team with a proven track record? Community: Does the exchange have a large and active community? By considering these factors, you can make a more informed decision about which exchange token to invest in. I recently began to study crypto even more actively, created a new one wallet for business, with the help of which I will carry out calculations in my business. Crypto is the future, so study it and develop in this direction. Hope this helps!
