IBM Stock Keeps Moving Sideways With No End in Sight

IBM

The case for IBM (NYSE:IBM) stock seems reasonably easy to make. For one, International Business Machines stock (as it’s sometimes known) is among the cheapest issues in the market. That combination seems like it should be an attractive one for the longtime tech giant. And indeed, I recommended IBM stock on two occasions last year, most recently amid a sell-off in November. The problem with IBM stock, however, is that the combination of a cheap price and a solid yield has held for years now. And over that stretch, IBM shares simply have kept falling. The stock actually touched a nine-year low in December. Even with a rally of late, IBM trades more than 20% below early 2017 highs. For nearly three years now, IBM has been a yield trap.

IBM Watson Health Names Nation's Top Health Systems

IBM

"The multi-year trend toward increased healthcare consolidation2 has shined a spotlight on health system performance, illuminating both the challenges of coordinating care across multiple facilities and the opportunities that can come with scale," said Ekta Punwani, 100 Top Hospitals® program leader at IBM Watson Health. Kyu Rhee, M.D., M.P.P., vice president and chief health officer at IBM Watson Health, added: "The growing trend of hospital consolidation into larger, more complex health systems has yielded benefits3, but it also has presented challenges to hospital administrators who must now integrate disparate data sets, acquire actionable insights and assure the health of larger communities. These winning health systems are demonstrating the power of aligning best practices, including utilizing data, across multiple hospitals to achieve greater efficiency while delivering a higher overall quality of care." The following are the key performance measurements on which 15 Top Health Systems showed the most significant average outperformance versus peer group health systems (full study results available here). The Watson Health 15 Top Health Systems study evaluates health system performance across nine clinical and operational performance benchmarks: risk-adjusted inpatient mortality index, risk-adjusted complications index, mean healthcare-associated infection index, mean 30-day risk-adjusted mortality rate, mean 30-day risk-adjusted readmission rate, severity-adjusted length of stay, mean emergency department throughput, Medicare spend per beneficiary index and HCAHPS score.

IBM's Mainframe Sales Crashed. That’s Normal.

IBM

One reason IBM (NYSE: IBM)suffered a revenue decline in the first quarter was slumping demand for its mainframe computers. Revenue from mainframes tumbled 38% year over year, dragging sales in the systems segment down 9% on a currency-adjusted basis. While mainframes aren't as important to IBM today as they were in the past, the hulking systems, with a large install base and monstrous switching costs, are a key component of the company's competitive advantages. This cycle has played out multiple times over the past decade as IBM refreshed its mainframe systems every few years. And despite the steep sales declines IBM is now seeing, the current cycle is the strongest in many years. IBM more than doubled mainframe sales on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter of 2018, so another big decline in sales in the second quarter of this year is inevitable.

5 Top Stock Trades for Thursday: DPZ, NFLX, IBM

IBM

It’s going to be another busy day on Thursday in that regard, although be mindful of Friday, when the markets are closed for the holiday. I have never been a huge fan of IBM (NYSE:IBM) as its growth remains painfully disappointing. However, the stock has been trading much better. I would like to see IBM hold $140 — a little above current levels — but as long as it can maintain its current prices, it’s technically okay on the weekly chart. This is a momentum stock and the lack of bullish momentum here is a concern to me, especially on earnings.
