I have heard this is going to go down cos no one is buying their typewriters. We all have computers now.

FSe I reckon it's too early too tell at the moment - I don't think the weakness is finished yet. The way I have been trading it all year is, mainly with USA stocks, buying the good charty uptrend stuff and selling the good downtrend stuff. So I have had a balance all year of just about 50% long and short and has worked very well. I do think a retest of September lows is on the cards - I don't think we are going to see a quick recovery. If this happens all my longs will gradually get stopped and my shorts should clock it in. If I am wrong then vice versa. But I think after a week like we have had, I don't see a sudden U Turn in sentiment and off to the races next week. Time will tell

FSE - Oh I am short the bad stuff too - like MU - best short so far this year and still falling. But by my criteria, the chart for IBM looks bad at the moment too so it's gotta be done.....

Indeed. Replace IBM with ORCL or AOL and a lot of the comments on this thread could easily have been made two years ago. For some reason - I don't know whether it's accounting worries, fear of anything to do with tech, or violent objection to the CEO's choice in ties - but the big boys don't want to hold this one. Until something happens to make them change their minds, the fundamentals are irrelevant.

If the last three years have taught us anything, it's that share prices can often become extremely detached from sensible valuations, both ways. I don't dispute IBM as a quality company but if the market wants to hammer the good stuff with the bad, and throw up nice low risk shorts, far be it from me to argue.

Yo Dil... there are better opportunities to short OK... surely.... mysources would indicate that a lot of IBM business is seeing solid growth... IBM is morphing .... IBM is a company I study and am presently not invested in but will return to very soon as soon as this end of the world panic and hysteria abates...

Dil, A clueless analyst would be cutting estimates in the current climate - just to be safe. It takes a really clued-up or stupid analyst to upgrade. Regards, Justin.

Mark my words folks business is on the up. I work in Scotland in the first quarter IBM did 45k worth of P-Series business (an absoloute disaster) this quarter so far there have been over 5 Miliion. The same is happening with software (which we all know is big margin) Treble

Hi mate, It isn't just analysts telling you business is picking up is it? OK treblewide doesn't work directly for IBM but he works in a channel for IBM kit. As for the other parts of the company................. :-)

Jazza I agree , looking at the fundamentals its a raging buy but all too often analysts have got about as much idea as your local GP has on how a company is performing. Dil

Dil, It's simple, some bits are doing better than others. IBM are cutting staff in the bits that aren't doing so well. The SG Cowen upgrade suggests a forward P/E of 17 falling to 14 with growth of 20% from 2002 to 2003 and a PEG of 0.85. On fundamentals that is a bargain for a blue-chip company, but the market ain't trading fundamentals...

IBM is a very solid company that has morphed into a succesful e business solutons/provider. I would be extremely careful in shorting IBM in fact I think its daft to do so despite the most negative sentiment possible.

9:21AM IBM: positive comments from SG Cowen, UBS (IBM) 74.65: SG Cowen raises est based on recent restructuring actions and currency shifts; sale of HDD biz, estimated job cuts of 10k, sale of microelectronics facilities, and dollar decline should add $0.30 to 2002-03 EPS; increases 2002 est to $4.55 from $4.40 and 2003 to $5.40 from $5.30; says stock looks conspicuously undervalued; price target is $112. Separately, UBS Warburg says that IBM's restructuring actions clearly eliminate businesses that have been a drag on the co's earnings outlook, and that IBM is enhancing its competitiveness to a degree unmatched by any competitor other than HPQ; price target is $120.
