The company’s relationship with HP was further damaged when Oracle hired its CEO, Mark Hurd, after he left following allegations of sexual harassment. Hurd resigned following an investigation that found “no violation of HP’s sexual harassment policy, but did find violations of HP’s Standards of Business Conduct,” according to the company.

The companies filed lawsuits against each other after Oracle decided to stop making software for some HP computers. Losing these partners will be a major issue for Oracle.

Breza said it was “a little surprising” Oracle shares have performed relatively well, despite the last difficult quarter and the stock dropping to $25 during December before rising to $29 when it released its last quarterly earnings. He isn’t surprised, however, that there has been “a rotation out of Oracle and into other software names,” when, for example, Microsoft was up 72 percent in the same period.
