The Best And Worst Tech Stocks Of 2013 (So Far)


Hewlett-Packard

CEO: Meg Whitman

Dec. 31, 2012: $14.25
June 28, 2013: $24.8
Change: 74.0%

After seeing its stock drop nearly in half in 2012, Hewlett-Packard has rebounded with a vengeance and has the honor of recording the biggest share-price gain in the first half of 2013 among all the stocks tracked by CRN.

Hewlett-Packard's struggles in recent years have been well-documented, from the revolving door on the CEO office to legal disputes surrounding its $11.1 billion Autonomy acquisition to declining market share in servers and other products.

But judging by the run-up in HP's stock price, Wall Street apparently has faith in CEO Meg Whitman's plans to turn the company around and make HP the technology innovator it once was.
