Behind its current high-yield status is a company with reasonable fundamentals

Scanning the headlines about HP Inc. (HPQ), formerly Hewlett Packard, generates quite a range of good and bad news.

But what kind of a dividend stock is it? Based on its inclusion on the High-Yield Dividend Screener & High-Dividend Yield Stocks in Guru's Portfolios list, it must have some merits. To get onto that list, a stock must be held by at least one investing guru, and it must offer a dividend yield of at least 4%.

The guru's attempt to merge HP and Xerox failed on March 31, but this might be good for investors

Investors associate Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio) with activist moves that drive radical changes in companies that he takes an interest in. As recently as last week, I published an article outlining how the guru forced Occidental Petroleum to agree to his demands, including significant pay cuts.

Despite his stellar track record, Icahn lost a battle with HP Inc. (HPQ) on March 31 as Xerox Holdings Corporation (XRX) put an end to its takeover attempt of its larger rival. The guru has been pushing HP to accept the more than $30 billion tender

He is buying Hertz (HRTZ), Hewlett Packard (HPQ) and Occidental Petroleum (OXY). Icahn believes there is too much money floating around, and as a result there have been a lot

A look at Baupost's portfolio at the end of the year

Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) is undoubtedly one of the best value investors alive today. His hedge fund, the Boston-based Baupost, has achieved an average annual return for its investors of 20% over the past few decades. Klarman has been able to achieve this return even while frequently keeping levels of cash in excess of 30%.

Considering his track record and detailed understanding of the value art, I like to keep an eye on Baupost's 13F filings with the SEC to see where Klarman is finding value in the market.

I should point out that these filings are

The stock market in the past couple of years has been a momentum market, in which rich stocks get richer and poor stocks get poorer

Activist investor pushes for consolidation with Xerox

December 4, 2019

Dear Fellow HP Shareholders,

I beneficially own 23,456,087 common shares of Xerox Holdings Corporation, constituting approximately 10.85% of the outstanding shares, and 62,902,970 common shares of HP Inc., constituting approximately 4.24% of the outstanding shares.
