Wall Street Is Dead Wrong About This Dow Stock

According to Wall Street analysts, Hewlett-Packard is the stock on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) with the most upside potential, yet they still have a hold rating on the stock.

Is Hewlett-Packard really worth 72% more than Mr. Market has determined? That's a bold prediction, and one that Fool.com analyst Austin Smith believes is off the mark. HP continues to flounder in the tech space and has squandered the few turnaround opportunities it has had.
