Hewlett-Packard CEO Woos Wall Street

Hewlett-Packard Co.'s new CEO, Mark Hurd, took his show to Wall Street, and won positive reviews. For the first time since he took over the computer and printer giant last March, Mr. Hurd met in New York with the company's top 25 institutional shareholders. While he didn't make any new announcements, analysts described Mr. Hurd's handling of questions as deft, suggesting that the man brought in to succeed ousted predecessor Carly Fiorina made a good first impression.
