Basing this largely on cheap valuation and the potential future margin expansion. Yield is approaching 3% (20% payout) as it hovers just above the 52 wk low. Very low Beta. Revenue declines appear priced in. Spent $5.4B in R&D last year and company has excellent track record of monetizing those expenditures. I would not say there is no potential for growth in the coming years. Reminds me of msft in 2010.

Not the worst place to park some cash, particularly if you are weary of increased volatility this year.

I understand a lot of the bull cases that call for IBM stock to be undervalued using basically every single financial metric out there (dividend yield, payout ratio, DCF, free cash flow, consistent EPS growth to get to $20/share in 2015, Uncle Warren's seal of approval, etc.). That is not where the problem is for IBM. Normally with such an iconic company, it is not hard to figure out exactly how it makes money with a little bit of digging. I'm scratching my head at how IBM makes money because it seems to make money through cutting employee expenses to the bone while shifting that money to the executives and shareholders. That makes sense in a lot of situations where skilled labor is simply an expense and the marginal benefit of labor is quite low, however, with a technology company that seems completely asinine. What is IBM going to be known for in the next 5 years? Watson? "Big Data"? Cloud computing? All possibilities, but management needs a vision and the ability to execute on said vision. There is too much untapped potential here to worry solely about Wall Street expectations.

Upwards trend and more competition will only lead down.

A well diversified company with strong cash reserves which has taken an unfair beating in the last 6 months. Good for the long haul.

Mass exodus of top talent with freezes on hiring in NA. Revenue will continue to plummet and likely be at the 50B mark in 5 years as cloud pushes the cost of software toward zero.

lows of the year, an almost 3% yeild. Can't go to bad on this stock. I see a little up side but no down at $160.

No longer what it once was and over the course of three years has made little improvement. Not to mention it has been superseded by other companies with little sign of change in that regard.

Near 52 week low, 2.7 yield and repositioning to services/software out of hardware.

Market price feeling the weight of a foundational shift in business model. I feel we may be underestimating IBM's partnership with Apple's move into the enterprise space. Solid outperform.

Current PE = 11.1, 2.6% dividend yield. That looks like dollar bills thrown in the dumpster to me.

They have tremendous overhead and no clear line of growth yet. This is going to be a long steady drop.
