IBM owns more patents than any other technology company.
The story begins in the 19th century.
If you have been following us for a long time, you should notice that we decided to make a portfolio of ideas from assets in the stock market for the long term.
And of course, it would have been blasphemy if we hadn't written a review of such a powerful company as IBM .
The corporation has been actively developing for more than a century, making our life easier and better by introducing new technologies into it.
Looking at the chart, you can name one dark period in their history - this is the beginning of the 90s, when the price of IBM shares fell to a critical $10.
In the early 1990s, the mainframe market crisis began, which peaked in 1993. And you guessed it - the main developer of mainframes was the IBM corporation. In 1993 Many analysts talking about the complete extinction of mainframes just now, and about the transition from centralized information processing to distributed (although the last mainframe was turned off in 2013).
In 1993, IBM posted a $8bn loss - the largest in American corporate history at the time - and it was time for drastic action.
New gene. director Luis Gerstner decides to cut 20% of its employees, which is 60,000 people. It was the largest cut in American history, but helped the IBM corporation survive from 1993-1994. From 1993 to 2002, when Gerstner left the Big Blue, the company's market capitalization rose from $29 billion to $168 billion. This man is considered the savior of IBM .
The next interesting period is the beginning of 2013, then a protracted correction in the value of IBM shares began, with which the price is now trying to start going up.
An interesting coincidence is that the price of Gold went into its 6-year correction also at the beginning of 2013.
Such a correlation might suggest that long-term investors have so much faith in IBM that they can view their stock as a defensive asset on par with Gold?)
By the way, below is our global thought in relation to Gold .
So, now let's talk about the prospects that we assume looking at the chart.
The maximum correction that we are now admitting is a fall to $110.50-112.50, from which we expect a solid rise in the value of IBM shares.
We consider the critical level - $180
Fixing the price above this level will open the way for a long-term growth perspective to $500-530
If the market will be negative, and the price cannot break through above $180, then unfortunately, then it will already be necessary to look towards $70 per IBM share
