3 Things That Will Make IBM Stock Worth Owning Again

Rosemaryetoufee via Wikipedia


To say International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) has been tough to own the past few years would be a considerable understatement. Even with the 43% gain from February’s lows, IBM stock is still down 21% since its early 2013 peak. Most other stocks are well up for the same timeframe.

Granted, last quarter marked the eighteenth consecutive quarter revenue declined on a year-over-year basis. In that light, the stock’s weakness makes sense.

But nothing lasts forever? After all, the IBM shares are up 16% since mid-June. There has to be a reason, right?

Maybe, but if International Business Machines is going to ever justify its recent lofty gains — or even just stop the bleeding — it’s going to have to do these three things.
