    IBM acquired SoftLayer Technologies, the world’s LARGEST cloud computing infrastructure provider to bolster its cloud services portfolio. IBM intends to roll the SoftLayer and the SmartCloud into a new cloud services division and expects it to generate $7 billion in revenue by the end of 2015.

  • My Top Investment Priority: Buy IBM Stock [View article]
    I do not recall any time when CNBC said to buy IBM. Most of my life, I have heard the media attempt to trash IBM's stock. So you really can't pay much attention to them. The best thing they ever do is just ignore the company. They cannot even cover one bit of news on the company. So if you are waiting for the media to tell you to buy IBM you can forget it.
    But if you go back and look at performance before this year, IBM has beat the S&P 500 and returned close to 10% annually. This year is not over, and I suspect this is going to be the best time to buy the stock.

    Adami is frequently wrong. In fact they pointed to one of his mistakes tonight on AEO.

    From this website:
    Thursday, Aug 15
    12:50 PM
    IBM scores $1B cloud services deal; Trusteer price reportedly $800M-$1B
    The Department of the Interior has awarded IBM (IBM -0.6%) a 10-year, $1B contract to provide a slew of cloud infrastructure services.IBM's SmartCloud government and enterprise offerings are part of the package, as are SAP app hosting and cloud services tied to IBM's AIX (UNIX) OS.The contract is IBM's biggest government cloud win to date, and comes as Big Blue continues to protest a $600M contract granted to Amazon Web Services by the CIA. IBM significantly grew its cloud infrastructure/Web hosting reach in June by acquiring private SoftLayer for a reported ~$2B.Meanwhile, Israel's Ynet reports IBM paid $800M-$1B to acquire threat-protection software vendor Trusteer. IBM notes 7 of the top-10 U.S. banks, and 9 of the top-10 U.K. banks, use Trusteer to protect against "financial fraud and cyber attacks."Like many security software upstarts, Trusteer relies on a cloud-based architecture to monitor Web activity and protect client hardware (inc. mobile devices)

    Obviously IBM is not struggling in the cloud as they won the Dept of Interior contract, and you would not have Amazon so fearful of a review that might lose their contract to IBM. IBM continues to make acquisitions in key growth areas, while they divest less profitable businesses.

    Let the market be wrong, buy on weakness, and ignore trolls who post negative sentiment every day. It isn't worth arguing with people who cannot even look up information before they make something up. Let them short the stock all they want because that will just give you and IBM cheaper prices to buy it. Eventually there will be no stock left to sell and you will have a large meaningful position in the best global technology company in the world.

    CS downgraded IBM on 8/6 exactly the same day as UBS. You can see CS ratings on TDAmeritrade and UBS ratings on Fidelity. No point in them paying them both in Switzerland for analyst reports as they apparently listen to the same guy who makes the bad calls. It worked for them since then. But now they have to try to keep the stock down so that they don't pay out any option bets. See all the money that the banks get to keep when options expire.
    http://bit.ly/TwklWw Type in IBM and see what they keep tomorrow.
    The banks are doing the same thing on many stocks like Apple. They like quagmires. One day the economy is improving and the next it isn't. Trade in and trade out paying those fees. One day we are going to war but the next day they aren't so sure... Margins are important unless they decide sales are important...
    The point is to keep our money. You can go short, and they will gladly keep your money too. And there is little the USA or Europe can do to two banks in Switzerland. For all I know, this website is there too.

    UBS and CS are short. They made that clear about a month ago. Not sure about Goldman.

    Sales are going to fall off until next spring. But stocks have hit low prices. So be prepared to hold them if you buy.

    It will drop if investors continue to believe the lies but if someone calls them out then it may not. I am not interested in Swiss banks making money on their shorts. Their own government funded the solar disc IBM developed.

    I don't believe it...not for a minute. Someone is paying you to talk it down.

    Sellers of futures should really stop posting on our stocks. If you don't own IBM, then what makes you the expert? What gives you the right to post inaccurate information?

    I think shorts will cover before the dividend is paid on Sept 10.

    And more importantly, one of the directors on the board, David Farr, CEO of Emerson Electric, just bought 1,000 shares on 8/27.
