Moody's has changed the outlooks of HP's (NYSE: HPQ) long-term A2 rating and short-term P-1 rating to negative from stable, the agency said in a report.

The negative outlook reflects a level of performance uncertainty after HP's announcements regarding its portfolio composition and an increase in financial leverage as a result of the proposed acquisition of Autonomy.

Last week, HP announced an agreement to buy UK software maker Autonomy for about US$11.7bn and said it plans to spin off its PC business. HP also revealed it will shut down its tablet and smartphone activities.
