I’m leery of growth companies (especially ones that make boneheaded moves) and favor sustainable companies with low P/E ratios.  Recently picked up HPQ.

It has a low P/E ratio now but I think the price will still go lower over the next year since they are projecting a loss, and then a year is a long time in that business.  They may have some competitors.  Even Amazon is showing movies.

Why is HPQ’s P/E ratio so low right now?  And a bunch of other tech companies- MSFT, DELL.

To be clear, I don’t think NFLX’s P/E is low and wouldn’t buy them.  HPQ has an amazingly low P/E because people don’t think Whitman and HP’s board know what they are doing, but their projected earnings are so strong that I think they’re a good buy (basically, the market is betting on massive value destruction; if management simply doesn’t destroy value, the stock will go up).  MSFT has a reasonable valuation because people don’t think it’s a growth company any more.  I think it’s a good buy.  DELL is cheap because their business space is under attack.  PCs/servers are so cheap now that the margins aren’t there and more folks may switch to pads and netbooks.

Thank you Apple for making up for all my bad stock picks.

Tempted to throw some cash on CHK for a long-term play. Natural gas prices aren’t going to be crazy low forever
