  • IBM: A History Of Adapting, Extinction Seems Unrealistic [View article]
    Why are you afraid to fault Garcha? Do you think people who work for Swiss companies or are educated or have worked in London are more knowledgeable than anyone else? Do they get a free pass on their mistakes just because of who they are? Actually it was those very same types of people who crashed the entire global economy and basically they did it with lies and cheating the system. Should they get off as well? Apparently they are...

    Anyone can grow revenue if they don't need to make a profit. I wonder how long banks will lend them money.

    I am not interested at all in Garcha's points because from what I can tell he makes things up and has frequently been wrong.

    IBM has been calling on departments for decades outside of IT. They call on presidents and CEOs of companies, marketing, accounting, retail sales, actually any dept where they have a new incentive to do so. What do you think "new business" sales people do? They call on the highest decision maker they can find to sell their products.

    Watson has nothing to do with security specifically. I don't know where you got that idea. IBM has other products for security.
    If analysts aren't held accountable for their bad calls or their errors, then why is that?

    To make my point look at what having him on CNBC did to HPQ's stock on this day.

    And I believe he was wrong. There was never any plan to break the PC business away from HP. He made that up in my opinion.

    You can sound intellectual without making sense and then you get your point across without any rebuttal until months later which you can find on this website but not yet on CNBC. CNBC should not be allowed to have one analyst make their view known without any other. This is clearly unfair. Also, CNBC never has a disclaimer that the speaker's view is not their own nor do they state that short sellers cannot force the price of a stock to go down or the entire stock market to go down, so they mislead all the investors watching their channel. Basically they have become a channel for hedge funds, bears, and talking heads to make havock with the stock market.
    Garcha said to buy EMC, QCOM, and Apple instead of IBM. This is nothing new. Every person on CNBC likes those 3 stocks regardless of highs or lows for years now. It doesn't require a managing director of Credit Suisse's salary to know that. I can tell you that for free. You would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to not know that those stocks get the most favorable coverage of all other tech stocks on CNBC. I cannot remember a time when anyone said to sell those 3 stocks, ever.

    Watson is going to be SaaS. It's already being used in several applications which you can find on IBM's website that run in the cloud. One of the last ones I read about is an App that helps you figure out what to buy when you are shopping for a trip.

    Look through stocktalks as I probably posted some other ones there.

    I can't believe IBM did this. Who cares what some Swiss bank thinks. And Kulbinder Garcha is just about the stupidest analyst in technology; he said buy RIMM when it was $60 and to buy Apple when it was $660. I think IBM should thumb their nose at them. He wouldn't know a technology firm if it were right in his face. He thinks smartphone companies rule. That's about as far into technology as he can understand.

    That guy Credit Suisse and UBS use as their analyst is very bad at his job. He told people to buy Rimm while it was in the $60s. And he said to buy Apple when it was $660. He has never said to buy IBM as far as I know. Google keeps what these people say for years and you can read it for yourself. I'm not sure why anyone cares what Swiss banks think anyway.

    So far net income after tax for IBM for Q1 thru Q3 has been $10,298 Million, that is almost $10.3B.
    Net income after tax for AMZN for Q1 thru Q3 has been $72 M. There is really no comparison and I cannot figure out why people do not understand this.
    So far IBM's Net income after taxes is 143 times Amazon's.

    Perhaps some of these banks will profit ahead as their clients were told to sell the stock. What an easy way to get shares at a cheap price!
