HPQ dropped 10% post earnings release.

Main criteria is FCF guidance is $3.5 to $4b. Market Cap is $60B.

Top line is still trending flat to down for 3 years now. they improved b/s by paying down debt, building cash. FCf has been good.

Also EPS guidance is BLAH

"With all that in mind, we are updating fiscal 2015 non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share outlook to be $3.53 to $3.73 which is lower by $0.30 due to currency headwinds.

Fiscal 2015 GAAP diluted net earnings per share outlook is in the range of $2.03 to $2.23. "

Does anyone use EBITDA or NON-GAAP EPS in their valuations?

MSFT probably better but i still hesitate as EPS has not grown...

Ill wait for a fat pitch.
