Recent News & Updates
New Microsoft Surface And HP PCs Demonstrate Ongoing PC Innovation
Both HP and Microsoft recently debuted a wide range of creative new PC designs, which clearly highlight that innovation in the PC world is still very much alive and well. HP unveiled PCs in several different form factors - from a tablet to a 2-in-1 convertible to a huge, widescreen all-in-one - as well as new monitors and software tools. Microsoft refreshed a large portion of its Surface product line at their launch event today and made a very notable and powerful addition in the form of the Surface Studio Laptop, a new design that evolves the Surface Laptop with a convertible screen design that’s similar to the Surface Studio desktop PC. By leveraging many of the new capabilities being built into Windows 11, such as Snap windows among many others, the new designs bring even more experiences to the PC right at a time when they are most needed.
HP Inc.: Growth, Cheap, Dividends, Buybacks
HP is a PC/printer manufacturer facing several risks and challenges: supply chain challenges, margin risk for printing supplies, and a hesitant market for its shares after a huge runup. However, HP is cheap based on several fundamentals: EV/EBIT, EV/Revenue, and P/FCF. Moreover, the company pays a good dividend and has bought back shares. Expectations are positive because of expected increases in PC usage, extra PC demand from the release of Windows 11 and extra demand as more people return to their offices.
