    Really
    I wonder if the market isn't being manipulated down by Wall Street traders raising fears over Omicron when the reality is that we don't have enough information to reasonably assess it's impact. Reports about the variant are encouraging -- barely perceptible symptoms for most.
    It's entirely possible that Omicron will be what the world has been praying for -- a variant that helps the masses by becoming a "natural vaccine" against other variants. If that's the case, the market should rally very strongly. That could give Wall Street traders an opportunity to sell shares back into the market that they are buying today.

    What is the Nature of quantom that IBM is working on: the nature of quantum computing is that it more closely resembles the natural world, which generally doesn't operate in a binary way. "If you want to compute about elements of nature," he says, "you need a computer that works the way nature does." Nature, he says, follows the behavioral rules of quantum mechanics. The world is analog, not digital.

    You won't yet find quantum computing showing up in any significant way on corporate income statements or Wall Street models, but scientists are increasingly talking about its power -- and it could one day become a material part of technology companies' results.

    Point of clarification many commentators and I on this board have been critical of previous and current CEO’s job performance. There is no intent to make a personal attack on anyone. Clearly the current CEO has impressive academic credentials but sadly academic achievements do not always translate to achieving business results. For past several years we have seen our investment shrink quarter after quarter and IBM board is oblivious to stockholders investment destruction. I do not know how to characterize the recent spin off other than disaster. It seems IBM BOD is engaged in some kind of despicable social leadership engineering experiment at great cost to IBM shareholders. This is a great injustice to shareholders.

    Future of IBM -Quantum computers have the ability to handle certain kinds of highly complex problems, in particular those with a large number of potential solutions that even conventional supercomputers can't handle

    IBM Is Finally Growing Again. And the Stock Is One of Tech’s Biggest Bargains.

    Barron's took a meat cleaver to Chanos' bear thesis. Supposing CNBC will now bring him on to expound on his case to sell. What a racket.

    Forward Dividend & Yield-$6.56 (5.66%). This is not pumped by the Fed or anyone else. This is from earnings generated by a stellar company regardless of who is at the helm. If you don't like the stock sell your shares and put the money in the bank, and watch yourself go broke safely!

    Adjusted share cost of IBM and KD. Shouldn't my broker have simply divided my IBM basis by six and assigned one part to KD and five parts to IBM? He has actually attributer more than half to KD.

    Added more today. Glad I wasn't around the last decade but it appears we're back on track with new leadership. Divvy is well covered too.

    The only question is should IBM shares be bought now after the spin off and their last earnings call?

    The answer is a resounding no.

    Nothing has materially changed with this companies fundamentals going forward. They are stuck in predominantly low margin businesses that are weighing the company down. They were way late to the Cloud party, and subsequently this piece of their business will not move the needle significantly, compared to an Amazon. Finally, Red Hat was too expensive an acquisition, which they are still paying for.

    Has IBM set the new dividend for post-spinoff IBM shares? Until that happens, the market will tree water, right?

    How can one company be so consistently disappointing almost every single day?

    Re-confirms the casino mentality that is the market - if any other company had come out with the Quantum computing news/breakthrough, there would be no looking back.

    As an investor - rather than a trader - important to look through the noise - and pick up fundamentally sound companies selling at a discount. It they pay a health dividend, even better!

    It certainly takes patience & courage, but usually pays off in the longer term!!

    If a startup with no revenue and no expectation of profit for ten years had made this announcement, it would instantly be valued by the market at more than IBM

    How much more screw up shareholders must endure before BOD come to its sense and fires the unqualified CEO. Spin off a disaster, cloud market share in the ditch, $32B Redhat purchase is not helping stock price, despite head start in AI, mismanaged technically has fallen behind competition, services units has failed to keep up with market requirements, low customer sat with IBM engagements. Worst stock price performance for past 10 years. Quantum computing hard to tell if IBM will be successful but not a revenue contributor yet. So where is the bright spot to justify BOD’s unconditional and unlimited support for CEO?
