IBM: Inflection Point On The Horizon

2018-08-15 seekingalpha
IBM (NYSE:IBM) has hit another rough patch. After a revenue beat for Q2, many analysts lowered their targets. The stock price has been dropping in the last five years to $142, but I think this is another buying opportunity. Bulls and bears are looking at the same data and news, but the bigger picture favors the former.

2018-08-13 investorplace
One popular form of dividend investing involves a group of stocks called dividend aristocrats. Standards of what makes up a dividend aristocrat vary. However, most analysts define it by three criteria. One, they must belong to the S&P 500 index. Two, they meet specific size and liquidity metrics. Three, and most importantly, they must have increased their dividend for 25 or more consecutive years.

August 13, 2018: Markets opened higher Monday but the joy didn’t last long. Only the Nasdaq made it out of the red for a while, and then only barely. Continued turmoil in the currency markets caused by the fall of the Turkish lira and how the problem might spread contributed to the bad mood among traders. The telecom sector and defensive stocks in general were Monday’s best performers; energy and materials were the poorest performers.
