  • After Hour Gainers / Losers [View news story]
    I used to look forward to IBM's quarterly report with such anticipation, now I dread the day coming. We've now had eight quarterly disappointments in a row, with Ginni at the helm. How long will this continue. Granted she was given the CEO position after her expertly handling of the Price, Waterhouse, Cooper transition, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Warren Buffett must be thrilled since he wants to keep IBM shares down for the next five years for their repurchase program, well he has the dream team in office. Perhaps IBM board of directors should pay a little more attention to the board of directors of Augusta Golf which will not allow Ginni to be complimentary member even as CEO of largest advertiser, granted to all other IBM CEOs. Can't be she's a female, since two other females were admitted last year. They evidently see somethingI wish our board will see before she brings us back to pre Lou Gerstner days.

  • IBM to invest over $1B in Watson business unit [View news story]
    Instead of spending all this money trying to create interest in Watson, why not just have Watson once again appear on Jeopardy. Watson handily defeated the two best Jeopardy champions of
    all time, imagin how Watson would do against average Jeopardy contestants. Earnings could reach the stratosphere!

  • IBM beats by $0.03, misses on revenues [View news story]
    How long must we put up with Ginni's mismanagement. How long will she take erasing all the good Lou and Sam did these past twenty something years. Telltale sign was when she publicly criticized her management team as an inappropriate mother would reprimand her child. How embarrassing. And Warren Buffet stating he hopes the stock tumbles (he's got his wish) so their buy backs will be more significant is the most extreme case of 'the glass half full' I have ever seen. Let's change the bylaws and get Sam or Lou back, and NOW! Time is of the essence!

  • IBM channel partner chief retires [View news story]
    How long must we wait as IBMers for Ginnie to get her act together. She has been CEO for approx 9 months and we have had nothing but negative results since her appointment. Now either Sam Palmissano knew when to jump ship or she is in the process of destroying a great company built back up by Lou Gerstner. The only way she is maintaining a decent but disappointing EPS is by
    Layoffs and buy backs. I still cannot understand why a company as great as IBM has such a young mandatory age. Lou and Sam have been doing great things in other directions, while we hold our breath with Ginni. Why can't we try, after Lou has had adequate time to mourn, to lure him back. IBM no longer stands for International Business Machines, but rather I've Been Mugged.

  • Good Reason To Buy IBM Here [View article]
    Cannot understand why IBM has mandatory retirement age for CEO. Had two excellent CEOs who were more or less forced to retire at an early age, who are now performing their expertise and excellence elsewhere, while we shareholders must hold our breath and hope new CEO has what it takes!

  • IBM: A Great Return On Investment [View article]
    I feel IBM is an excellent investment at this time. There is no way IBM will not make the $20 per share forecast by Sam Palmissano three years ago by 2015, if not by earnings than most definitely by buy backs and unfortunately layoffs. With earnings of $20 per share and a conservative PE of 12, brings the price up to 240 add dividends, and you have an almost guaranteed return of approx. 12 per cent, less commissions. Compare that to returns on bonds, CD etc.
