Non-stop CEO changes. Strategy shifts. Board feuds. It's hard out here for a Hewlett-Packard shareholder. Even so, a chart included in HP's annual filing drives home just how battered those shareholders have been.

If you invested $100 in HP in 2007, your investment today would be worth $28.41 as of the end of HP's fiscal year in October. By comparison, the same $100 invested in the S&P 500 would be worth $101.81. And if you just picked the S&P Information Technology Group, it would be worth $110.08.

Of course, the latter two contain Apple, which is, well, Apple. Still, it's been a brutal five years. Shareholders have to hope there is nowhere to go but up in 2013.
