Earnings Outlook: HP earnings: Holiday PC sales could be a win, but not a cure

HP Inc. is expected to release earnings for the holiday quarter Wednesday with a present to investors in the form of strong PC sales, but little to promise big sales growth in the future.

Reports from third-party analysis firms suggest that the holiday season was stronger than expected for sales of personal computers, and earnings reports from industry titans like Microsoft Corp. MSFT, -0.20% and Intel Corp. INTC, +0.11%backed up that view. HP HPQ, +1.13% is expected to have grown sales of its PCs in the quarter, but IDC and Gartner agreed that it did not overtake Lenovo Group Ltd.
