Is HP for real?

In this installment of Investor Beat: Hewlett-Packard is the #1 performing Dow stock of 2013, but does that mean the business is strong?

By Motley Fool Investor Beat Jun 12, 2013 4:19PM
Shares of Dow component Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) are up again Wednesday, after CEO Meg Whitman told CNBC that revenue growth was still possible. Whitman said she was happy with the progress the company has made thus far, and revenue growth was the next focus of the five-year plan. 

So far Hewlett-Packard is the best performer in the Dow Index. In our lead story on Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jeff Fischer and Bryan Hinmon discuss how HP has bounced back from its lows--  but still has a long way to go before investors should jump in.
