    Still no answer???????????????

     

    Still no answer to my original question: "Can anyone name a single product segment where IBM is the industry leader?" Maybe I should rephrase the question. What product can I buy from IBM that is the undisputed leader in its segment?

    • that'S a joke. Right. Spend some of your time reading IBM news. How 's that short position doing for you ?

    • what difference does that make ??? IBM prints money faster than God .. it's been that way for over 1/2 a
      century ... back in the heyday of mainframes .. IBM was far from the fastest or the best , but their
      unparallel service alowed them beat the pants off of everybody ..
      you don't need the best mousetrap to catch the most mice ....
      not to worry .. IBM has baffled the pros for decades , which is why there is so much hate for IBM .. every time
      the analysts come out with some sort of doom and gloom story , IBM wallops the world ...
      NOW .. your 2 posts come across as being completely negative . .to what end ? Do you want to see
      IBM founder ? are you perpetually short IBM ? If you cannot figure out why a company has made trillions
      in revenue and hundreds of billions in profits over the years , then maybe the stock market is not
      your cup of tea .... garce ...
      PS ... don't come back here and cry next year , after IBM crosses 250 and how you didn't make
      any money on it , because YOU can't figure out what product they lead the pack in .....

    • I can name three segments just off the top of my head, today, why don't you do your homework? Or if you're too lazy ask your broker. You can't buy anything, they don't sell to consumers.
      There's no such thing as undisputed!
      Ask the same insanely stupid question about the other Dow components and you'll get the same non answer.
      What product can I buy from MCD that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from XOM that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from GS that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from T that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from UNH that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from NKE that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      What product can I buy from KO that is the undisputed leader in its segment?
      Competition is good for everybody and thank god companies constantly try to out do each other or we wouldn't have a market that changes everyday.
      Now ask a more valuable question: Name a company that has repeatedly risen to the challenges of new competition and continued to adapt and evolve to consistently grow profits over the last 100 years?
      A very short list will become evident.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • enterprise computing, super-computing and business analytics. Next?
