What are Wall Street analysts saying about IBM Common Stock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about IBM Common Stock stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IBM provides advanced information technology solutions, including computer systems, software, storage systems and microelectronics. IBM is having a tough time, given the ongoing and heavily time-consuming business model transition to cloud.  Further, modest IT spending growth along with foreign exchange volatility is a concern. Moreover, intensifying competition in most of the markets is a major headwind. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Nonetheless, strength in cloud, security and analytics as well as cost savings bodes well for company’s top-line and bottom-line. The company has been gaining a lot of traction in emerging markets. Accretive acquisitions have expanded company’s product portfolio into higher-growth segments, such as Cloud computing and Big Data. Furthermore, the company’s expanding footprint in the rapidly growing blockchain market is a positive." (4/11/2018)
