HP-Compaq: can there be a 'winner'?
NewsFactor Network writes "Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has optimistically -- some say prematurely -- claimed victory in the company's ongoing merger saga, as has Compaq CEO Michael Capellas. But until final voting results are in, which could take up to two weeks, analysts and industry watchers will continue their debate on the merits and pitfalls of joining the two tech giants together or letting them go their separate ways. And analysts' opinions are as diverse and impassioned as those of the HP and Compaq shareholders who actually cast proxy ballots."
