HP could be headed for another multibillion-dollar write off

Even if the worst is over for HP (HPQ), the company may not yet be done writing off losses from past acquisitions. The San Jose Business Journal interviewed a few analysts to get predictions on what HP’s analyst meeting will reveal next week, and Jefferies’ Peter Misek says that the electronics giant could be poised to write off $3 billion in losses linked to its 2011 acquisition of enterprise information technology firm Autonomy.
