"....As usual, the Image and Printing Group .... operating profits in this HP group came to $1.16bn in the quarter...." So that's the printer bizz that Sunshiners look down their nose at so much. Let's look at what Chris Mellor wrote on the 12th Novermber:
"....analysts are expecting Sun to lose $1.35bn on revenues of $12.8bn for its fiscal 2009 year...."
So, the HP printer bizz made almost as much profit in a quarter as the whole of Sun is expected to lose in the whole next year. Maybe Ponytail should spend the last $3bn in the bank buying someone like Kyocera?
