Analyst James Kisner commented, "Q4 EPS was in-line, the net result of lower than anticipated revenue offset by margin expansion and lower overhead costs. We continue to believe HPE shares offer a compelling valuation and will continue to rise as investors become more comfortable with HPE's revenue and free cash flow outlook."
