    These recalls are minor and should not be causing this drop in stock price.

  • How To Find The Best Style ETFs [View article]
    IBM sold the PC business to Lenovo in 2005. Last year the problem was the server sector and all server vendors worldwide saw a decline in their server revenue. IBM sold their low-end server line to Lenovo (bad for HPQ because Lenovo cuts prices), and announced a new line of Power 8 servers. Google is buying IBM Power 8 servers, not from Intel. On the low end, IBM still owns their original investment in Lenovo. And IBM is replacing hundreds of servers, such as from MSFT and Intel, with SDN (software defined networks). IBM was the company most frequently mentioned in corporate filings as a risk to their business. IBM is so cheap right here. It is being bought on weakness if you look at the WSJ. IBM has small mainframes now that act like servers and even have wireless reducing the need for infrastructure in places like Africa.

  • IBM Will Gain From Its Shift Towards New Tech Trends [View article]
    R&D is consistent from one year to the next. Do some research on Power 8 chip in servers. IBM is going after Intel's monopoly and Google is their customer.
    Research their SDN announcements, their mobility announcements, all of their cloud announcements, their many patents, the graphene chip I mention below....

    And there is a good price today for TJX.

  • TJX misses by $0.03, misses on revenue [View news story]
    This stock is worth buying while it is down because of the growth in Europe. Clothes and homegoods are so expensive in Europe, the company can do well there with their discounted merchandise. Comparable store sales in Europe were up 8%. I believe as more people there shop at TJX they will want to own the stock. TJX raised the dividend and announced share buybacks.

  • IBM -2% as $20 EPS target outweighed by cash flow questions [View news story]
    When IBM hits $20 EPS can we get a list of the analysts who were wrong? That would be very interesting. If you could go ahead and question each one for the record, please do.

    It doesn't sound like Toyota was any better in recalls.

    You can see why GM didn't recall the cars after reading about some of the accidents: alcohol, drugs, not wearing seat belts, history of epilepsy, etc. I've read also that not all cars in accidents had the key in the accessory position.

    I agree with most of your post, but once they start compensating people for accidents years ago, then when will that end? And will Toyota and Ford have to compensate people as well?

    People are quite aware that the news is more about hype than facts and getting you to watch their ads on tv waiting for "news" that isn't anything close to being new. 40,000 people die in the USA due to auto accidents and everyone thinks its someone else's fault. If they can get money from GM, they will try to do it. And that goes for all the other companies as well. I think more people sued over the Firestone/Ford accidents and now both companies seem to be doing just fine.
    From Wikipedia: " it has been estimated that over 250 deaths and more than 3,000 serious injuries resulted from these failures, with not all occurring on Ford Motor Company vehicles." It is indeed sad that 13 people died in a GM car with a faulty part, but with over 40,000 accidents per year, NHTSA does not have the people to investigate every one of them nor is any automaker going to take responsibility to pay for the accidents. That is why you have insurance.
