Since 1993 IBM has been on a bull run. IBM bull run started out as a rising wedge pattern from late 1993 till about 1997. Irrational exuberance propelled the stock out of the wedge reaching a status of overbought (above upper purple line). The stock remained overbought for a few years until the Enron-World Com accounting scandals rocked the stock. IBM shares took more than a 60% haircut from the tech bubble 1999 highs. Shares of IBM resumed back to the extended 1993 wedge support/resistance and held middle ground (dotted-white line). In 2008 when the S&P and DJIA hit all-time highs, IBM hit the upper resistance line and quickly fell back to the bottom support line during the financial crisis of 2008-09. IBM stock has once again rocketed outside the upper resistance line. For me this signals we are once again in an irrationally priced market. The Nasdaq has not reached an all-time high in price similar to the bubble, but the prices are closer to pre-bubble highs than ever before.

In the short-term I have IBM pricing over 200, but only temporarily before a market crash ensues. I expect IBM to once again price near the lower purple support line rather quickly. Other than the an overbought tech market, a United States credit rating cut by both Moodys Analytics and Fitch will aid in the stock plunge.

Geithner Warns Lawmakers Debt Standoff Risks U.S. Default

Dec 26, 2012 Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said he will take “extraordinary measures” to postpone a U.S. default into early 2013 while President Barack Obama and Congress work out a deficit-reduction deal. Geithner, in a letter to congressional leaders today, said the government will hit its statutory debt ceiling on Dec. 31. To avert a default, the Treasury will take action to create about $200 billion in headroom under the debt limit, which would normally last about two months.
