HP is in Year 2 of a multiyear turnaround effort. Revenues continue to decline in the core markets of servers, printers and PCs, with growth not expected until FY15. However, HP is profitable, generating significant cash flow, and bright spots like HP Software and 3PAR StorServ are growing rapidly.
