Few Words about NYSE:HPQ. HP Inc. (also known as Hewlett Packard) is an American technology company leading as a global provider in computing and imaging solutions and services for business and home. The company is focused on capitalizing on the opportunities of the Internet and the proliferation of electronic services. Its major businesses include Imaging and Printing Systems, Computing Systems and Information Technology Services. HPQ was formed on November 1, 2015 out of the personal computer and printer divisions of the original Hewlett-Packard Company, with its enterprise products and services businesses becoming Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The split was structured so that Hewlett-Packard changed its name to HP Inc. and spun off Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a new publicly traded company. HP Inc. retains Hewlett-Packard’s pre-2015 stock price history and its former stock ticker symbol, HPQ, while Hewlett Packard Enterprise trades under its own symbol, HPE.

Regarding the coming earnings, Zacks.com model does not support that HP will likely beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in its upcoming release due to that fact that Earnings ESP, which represents the difference between the Most Accurate estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate, is currently pegged at 0.00%. This is because the Most Accurate estimate of 42 cents comes in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate. One more reason for the above assumption is that HP carries a Zacks Rank #2. Though this increases the predictive power of ESP, the company’s ESP of 0.00% makes surprise prediction difficult.

Despite that, many analyst hold Bullish HPQ due to the following reasons:

HP is the leader in Printing Company World Wide especially after September 12, 2016 announcement that Hewlett Packard NYSE:HPQ set to buy Samsung Electronics’ OTC:SSNLF printer business for a cash payment of $1.05 billion. The acquisition is expected to close in 2017 and is expected to be accretive in the first full year following closing. After closing, Samsung has agreed to make a $100 million to $300 million equity investment in HP through open market purchases.
