Hewlett-Packard shares leapt in after-hours trading, despite quarterly results showing a seventh consecutive fall in sales.
HP, which is the world's largest personal computer maker, saw profit fall 32% to $1.1bn (£731m).
The share price rise came on the back of a higher forecast for full-year profits by the company, but can the firm really revive its fortunes in the current economic climate?
