Argus on Sep 19 said that IBM may benefit from HP's missteps. IBM is also seeing some strength as a safer tech stock than Apple, which is more dependent on consumer whims and its design prowess which has been impaired by the recent death of Steve Jobs. IBM, with a market cap of $217 billion, is a global provider of computer hardware, software, and services.
