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 is benefiting from operating efficiency, cost cutting and lower share count. Moreover, the company’s improving position in the hosted cloud, security, blockchain and analytics bodes well. IBM is witnessing growth in industry verticals like health, retail and banking. Solid adoption of Watson Health and broad-based growth in Payer, Provider, Imaging and Life Sciences domains is notable. However, stiff competition does not bode well for Storage hardware segment. Additionally, IBM’s ongoing business model transition to cloud is time-consuming, which is likely to be a headwind. Further, ballooning debt levels have been troubling IBM lately. Notably, shares of IBM have underperformed the industry in the past one year." (4/22/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ": We maintain our Neutral rating on IBM and our 12-month PT of $140*. It is almost Red Hat time, with the acquisition expected to close in 2H19 (Click here for note). We believe investor focus this quarter will be on whatever information it can gleam about Red Hat and recent divestitures, performance of the Strategic Imperatives, margin momentum, and 2019 outlook. IBM’s faster-growing Strategic Imperatives’ (SI) revenue growth decelerated in 3Q18, as all segments moderated. The SI has been offsetting continued declines in the rest of the business, and if IBM can maintain double-digit growth in these revenues, the inflection point for a return to sustained overall growth could be near."
