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)
- 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "3Q17 preview: We expect a revenue decline in the period. Our 3Q17 revenue estimate is $18.62 bn (-3.2% y/y, -3% cc), vs. the FactSet consensus of $18.60 bn. Our EPS estimate is $3.29 vs. the consensus of $3.28." (10/13/2017)
