Export-CSV looks for properties not array contents.
if u want just dump it in csv file then use this:
$array0 = HP,HP,Cisco Systems Inc
$array0 |  sc C:\temp\1.csv

Just to expand the above comments, Export-csv read object properties and values and then write it to csv file, In your case it's an array of strings. Export-Csv the cmdlet takes the properties of objects in pipeline which is only Length for strings (“String” | GM), and writes those properties to the csv file.
