In Cynthia M. Allen’s Aug. 10 Other Views column, The other woman in the race is an asset to the Republican field, she states as one of Carly Fiorina’s attributes that she “has learned to keep her eye on the bottom line.”
If that were true, one wonders how it is that: Hewlett-Packard stock lost more than half its value during her tenure as CEO, while the overall NASDAQ fell by half that amount during the same time; and she was asked to leave the company. Not exactly a business record a CEO would like to emphasize.
Instead, Allen and others, including Fiorina, stress that she held the position of CEO, failing to state the results of her tenure.
