For Years we have heard about IBM as a school example of a safe stock, beginner friendly stock and whatnot. They used to say IBm is where the smart money goes. On the other hand, in the past few years, we hear more and more stories about bad... — read more
I want some advice. I’m relatively new to investing and I want to build up a nice dividend based portfolio that could serve me long term. On one hand IBM is pictured as a good, stable stock that is almost perfect for dividend based investing. Let’s... — read more
Highest sales growth quarter in a decade is good news. I'm interested in whether someone has compared IBM's Cloud revenue growth rate to the company's competition? I am still in doubt whether it is worth investing in this stock in 2022 or not.
I’m reading that the analysts claim that the 12 month median target for IBM stock is $145, while the high estimate for it is $185. With all due respect to the people that follow the stock performance and to the fact that IBM is a stable stock I find... — read more
I think we all know that recession and a stock market crash are coming. I'm new to investing and the majority of my portfolio is IBM. I don't know if I should sell now and diversify or if I should wait. I know it's a risk either way, but I think I... — read more
I wouldn't be surprised if it dropped to $110 tomorrow.
IBM spent years selling valuable assets to be able to pay a dividend. In my opinion, that was a very misguided approach. If the (relatively) new CEO focuses on creating value rather than selling it, IBM could do really well once again. It'll take... — read more
I'm in a big dilemma regarding whether to dump IBM or not. I have a dividend based portfolio and am not someone who is trying to score some short term gain, but let;s be realistic, I also don't want to own a stock that's down nearly 20% in the last 5... — read more
These days I’m looking into the options of adding some shares of tech companies into my portfolio. As far as I could research, many people are still suggesting IBM. This time I think I’ll pass. A lot of tech companies show much bigger potential at... — read more
I was just looking at quarterly revenue once again and it is not clear to me what is wrong with the market these days??? That stock down by 10% is a typical trader overreaction. I am on hold.
I know the results were disappointing and that brought the price down some, but I think that's exactly what makes it a good sn---h right now, in my opinion. I know this might seem counterintuitive at this point, but if you look at the big picture... — read more
I don't know many tech companies that managed to fail to capitalize on the pandemic, but IBM is one of them. If the revenue dropped by 4% at the time when others were smart enough to use the opportunity that presented itself, then I worry about... — read more
I've owned IBM for a long time, including in its heyday when it reached the $200s, so seeing it dip under $100 at times was a bitter pill to swallow. Now, I've finally started regaining confidence in the stock. The path might be slow, but I think it... — read more
I understand that IBM is not a stock to buy for those looking for a short-term gain but lately a lot of people I know that have long-term, dividend-based portfolios are talking about dropping IBM. I owned quite a portion of IBM and I buy a little... — read more
Circa 2009 was the start of the greatest bull market in history, and it was led by technology stocks. Yet our previous CEO found a way to swim against this mighty current and quarter by quarter, year after year, revenues fell, RAs were executed, and... — read more
I was just reading today that it is expected that IBM will post a decline in earnings, even without that information, when we look deeper in the way this company has been doing business lately, the logical concussion is that the stock is... — read more
In ten years IBM stock went from low $200s to occasionally entering $130s. Numerous bad decisions, bad management, and market conditions all contributed to its fall. I once used to think that there'll come a time when the stock would rebound but... — read more
no innovation ibm's moats and barriers to entry are getting weaker management is all about cost control, growth & r&d is secondary do no treat employees well (this is a big one) acquisitions are haphazard and weak so, i do not see... — read more
What is the plan for the dividend? I’m not sure if there will be some opportunities to increase the dividend and future. It looks like the cash flow may be improving, this leads me to believe that there should be enough cash in IBM’s treasury to... — read more
