Today, analyst Andrew Tonner discusses the struggling PC-maker Hewlett-Packard (NYS: HPQ) . HP faces an uphill battle moving forward, with few substantial opportunities for growth. Global trends victimized the company over the past few years, especially the movements away from PCs and toward tablets and smartphones. HP has struggled to break into those markets, and Andrew sees it as a definite sell.

If you're a tech investor, the amount of Apple stock in your portfolio has been a key factor in whether you're stomping the market in recent years, unlike HP's unimpressive performance. However, with the company preparing its most important phone launch in history with the iPhone 5 and looking at a game-changing television, the stakes have never been higher for Apple.
