    Can we take off the tunnel vision glasses and look at the potential of HP. If it's currently $19.20 based on a rebuilding plan, how much can it be worth in 2 or 3 years? How can you do a valuation without looking at the potential of a stock?? I guess that's people that didn't listen to the Motley Fool and got into HP this year is in the green!! HP will be $30-$40 in 2-3 years once all the shorts realize this isn't a sure thing anymore to go down
