HP Q4 Earnings; Revenue Up, R&D Up, Printing Revenue Up

HP Issued their 4th quarter earnings and while there were certainly areas that need to be addressed, they had several areas of good news, including YoY increased revenue and an increase in print revenue over the same period.

While the increases were slight, with the overall decline of the printing market and the continued slide of key competitors, the news seems good in comparison. Up is up and it’s better than down.

 Here’s the HP release:
