They will stick to and strengthen the critical practices and disciplines we've put in place. HP is in great hands." "Meg has been an outstanding leader since coming to HP, and we believe that as chairman she can most effectively drive the turnaround and continue to build value for our shareholders," said Gary Reiner, chairman of the Nominating, Governance and Social Responsibility Committee.

11:54 EDTHPQHP technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed the broader averages, rising by more than 8%. The trend has had a decidedly bullish slant, with $36 at the high and $33 at the low. These bounds give us some guidance as to how price might behave depending on earnings and guidance. A breakout above $36 and notably the 52-week high at $36.21, would appear very probable if the news is better than already high expectations. Next major resistance would be at $38, a level not seen since early 2011. An extreme upside reaction could push the stock to $40.34. Given the strong bullish sentiment in the name, the risk may be more to the downside on a disappointment. The key level to watch on the downside if news or guidance is worse than expected is at the 50-day moving average, last at $34.57. A breakdown below the 50-day would break the intermediate-term uptrend and that would have bearish implications for future price. The $33 level would become the next important zone following such a break. A snap below $33 on an extreme disappointment would see $31.48 as next support.
