HP Inc.’s stock experienced a 4% decline in extended trading on Wednesday following the release of their latest fiscal results that were in line with Wall Street’s expectations.

Revenue Stabilization Amid Market Shifts

CEO Enrique Lores acknowledged a slowdown in revenue decline, highlighting the stabilization of the PC market in 2024. More insights into HP’s AI PCs, set to launch in the second half of the year, will be shared during an upcoming reseller event. Noteworthy attendees include executives from Microsoft Corp., Alphabet Inc.’s Google, and Nvidia Corp.

Fiscal First-Quarter Performance

During the fiscal first-quarter, the Silicon Valley giant reported net earnings of $622 million, or 62 cents per share, compared to $469 million, or 47 cents per share, in the previous year. Adjusted earnings stood at 81 cents per share, with total revenue declining by 4.4% to $13.19 billion.

Personal-systems net revenue dropped by 4% to $8.8 billion, while printing revenue saw a 5% decrease year over year, amounting to $4.4 billion.

Future Projections

Analysts predicted earnings of 81 cents per share on revenue of $13.57 billion, aligning closely with FactSet’s expectations. For the second quarter, HP anticipates adjusted earnings ranging from 76 cents to 86 cents per share, against FactSet’s consensus of 81 cents per share.

Despite a flat performance in HP’s shares over the past year, outpacing the growth of the S&P 500 index by 28%, the company remains strategically positioned for future growth and innovation.
