    IBM threw a curve ball. I am retired and needed some income so I increased my shares in T and added IBM. IBM is no longer the company it used to be. The business model is changing (not going into details as most know this already). I thought this is a good stock as the dividend is relatively high and IBM looks like it would continue to provide me a steady income with a growth potential. Honestly, when the stock goes up, it just makes me feel good but it really does not matter. As long as I need to hold the stock to get the dividend, these are paper gain only.
    This news on the 2nm chip is a game changer. The current most advance chip in the market is 5 nm. This is a leapfrog advance. The benefit is huge. The smaller wiring inside a chip would yield faster speed as the distance for the electrons to move is shorter. The wiring is smaller and it draws less power. The mobile device would last longer between charges. Chips are made from Crystal wafers. The yield on smaller chips would increase from the same size wafer. IBM’s new 2nm chip would beat all existing chips and the next chips that are schedule to be released by other manufactures. IBM could either contract manufactures to make this new 2 nm chip or licensed this technology. Either way you cut it, this is going to be a new revenue stream. I am lucky that I added IBM to my portfolio. I am not selling even with this gain as there is no other stock that has a good potential and pays me a decent dividend. Good Luck to All the Longs.

    Thank you again to those that sold me shares under $120. I said then and I'll say it now, IBM will soar like BA did from $100 to $300 a few years back. They are now aligned and in sync with where technology is going, quantum computing, 2 nm, Linux, etc.

    ibm had a foundry which was sold to globalfoundries in 2014 who still make
    server chips for ibm . so it's not like this is ibm's 1st rodeo in chip market.
    besides both samsung and intc have collobration with ibm.
    my take is ibm will license out 2nm techology to these two.
    globalfoundries is thinking of IPO. That's worth watching.

    ibm kept r@d going in chip tech thru some rough times and now
    it's big time payback coming.

    What’s the chances that several of IBM’s R&D and offerings have been hard to monetize until recently?
    When you look at AI, block chain, automation and the addition, although a little late to the party, cloud and hybrid cloud, it seems IBM is poised to capitalize heavily for the next 5-10 years.
    The growth in fintech, crypto, e-commerce and the push to automate assembly lines with smart AI, and big data analysis needs, leads me to believe that the next 10 years could be IBM’s return to a leader in technology
    Bullish

    "IBM unveils 2-nanometer chip technology for faster computing"

    I guess IBM's great number of patents means something after all...

    With IBM asserting itself with 2 nm and quantum computing aka Cleveland Clinic, sellers here are way too early. Buy.

    IBM (NYSE:IBM) rose 1.8% after getting a Street-high price target on expected growth ahead.

    BofA Securities set the price target for IBM at $175 from $153, forecasting sustaining growth after it spins off its infrastructure services business later this year, StreetInsider reported.

    Analyst Wamsi Mohan reiterated a buy rating on the company after hosting an investor call with Chief Executive Officer Arvind Krishna.

    "IBM is seeing the majority of clients adopting a hybrid cloud approach given regulations, latency concerns and data sovereignty," Mohan said. "Red Hat enables customers to deploy workloads seamlessly between private/public clouds and on-prem. Since acquiring Red Hat in 2019, IBM has improved growth rates into the high teens sustainably."

    The IT services business spinoff will help simplify the company's structure, Mohan said.

    IBM's had a bumpy 12 months but shares have risen more than 20% in the past two months, in part thanks to earnings for the quarter ended in March that trounced estimates.

    As great as the 2nm announcement is, who actually has the fab capabilities to produce it? Oh, that's right, no one at the moment. If I were Musk or Bezos I am using some of my billions to start building that fab yesterday and leapfrog $TSMC.

    "Last week, the market panicked over proposed increases to the capital gains tax rate. But that only made dividend stocks that much more valuable, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Tuesday night.
    Cramer reviewed his top 10 high-yielding dividend stocks which included IBM (IBM) , which is breaking itself up to spur growth. Let's pay a visit to the charts of Big Blue.

    We looked at IBM on April 20 and wrote that "Aggressive traders could go long IBM at current levels risking to $131. The $156-$161 area is our price target for now."

    Interesting, that which is happening to tech stocks. Yes, they are up, but all companies use tech: Computer aided design, some robotic manufacturing, chips in cars TV's smart phones,..... checkouts and tracking inventory +++ at stores,..... This isn't history in reverse (reversing Industrial Revolution). Software for nearly everything. 5G, AI, Data Centers..... The vaccines for Covid came from computer researching and testing by humans......

    not many value stocks left in the market, but the pull back in tech has opened up plenty of opportunities to invest. IBM stands out as a growth and value stock and therefore, positioned for better days
