What are Wall Street analysts saying about IBM stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about IBM stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IBM provides advanced information technology solutions, including computer systems, software, storage systems and microelectronics. The company benefits from strong demand for z14 Mainframe and Power products. Moreover, IBM’s improving position in the cloud, security and analytics bodes well. Also, accretive acquisitions have expanded IBM’s product portfolio into higher-growth segments, such as cloud computing, AI and Big Data. Further, IBM’s advanced blockchain, cloud; machine learning ("ML") capabilities, among others poises its offerings well to gain robust adoption. However, we believe the strategic imperatives will take some more time to report meaningful growth and offset weakness in the traditional business. IBM’s ongoing heavily time-consuming business model transition to cloud continues to hurt the stock, which has underperformed the industry in the past year." (9/19/2018)
