With so many attractive alternatives among IT companies which face short-term, business cycle issues and/or fiscal cliff panic, why bother with HP's seemingly endless list of self-inflicted wounds which might take years to fix. You yourself have suggested STX, INTC and APPL recently. CSCO and MSFT are not bad either.

HP is probably like BP; after years of mismanagement, eventually it might reward the patient investor who bought near the lows.

And taking of oil producers, APA and DVN also look extremely attractive, with APA now selling at book value, an extremely rare occurrence. Both have highly regarded management too.
