EARNINGS DOWN, STOCK UP: Hewlett-Packard's latest quarterly results fell from last year, but the deterioration wasn't quite as bad as management and analysts had feared. Investors interpreted Thursday's news as a sign that HP's turnaround strategy is starting to pay off. The company's stock rose 5 percent in extended trading.

RECURRING HEADACHE: As has been the case for the past year, Hewlett-Packard Co.'s personal computer division remained the biggest drag on the company's performance. PC sales have been falling as more spending shifts to smartphones and tablet computers.

STAYING THE COURSE: HP CEO Meg Whitman reiterated the company has no plans to spin off or sell its PC operations.
