Top 5 Undervalued Stocks To Own For 2019

In no uncertain terms, HP Inc. (NYSE:HPQ) management had decided the personal computer industry was in decline. Former CEO Meg Whitman decided to spin off the higher-growth enterprise business from the company’s core PC and printer manufacturing business to unlock value.

Meanwhile, the remaining company (HP Inc.) would focus on traditional management tactics of dealing with an industry in decline, which mostly consists of returning cash to shareholders, controlling costs, and attempting to win market share. The company’s stated goal was that 50% to 70% of free cash flow would be returned to shareholders via buybacks and dividends.

That’s not a recipe for rocketing growth, but what if the “death of the PC” obituary was written too soon? Does that mean HP Inc. is undervalued?
