In the last year Lenovo has become the worldwide No. 1 PC vendor, with significant gains in the server and smartphone markets. It is acquiring IBM's x86 server business for $2.3 billion and Motorola Mobility from Google for almost $3 billion. So why was Lenovo's stock the worst performer on our list in February?

Investors seemed to have been spooked by the acquisition of the money-losing Motorola ($1.1 billion in pretax losses in 2013). But analysts say the market may be taking a short-sighted view of Lenovo, and that's pushed its share price down, rather than looking at its long-term prospects.
