Dow-30 component International Business Machines (IBM) is a worldwide supplier of technology and business services, software, and systems hardware. It is one of the few information technology companies with a continuous history dating back to the 19th century. Since that time, IBM has grown to great prominence, earning the nickname Big Blue, referring to the color of the mainframes it installed in the 1960s, and holding more patents than any other U.S.-based technology entity ever.

We will decipher just that using our recent Value Line report. Read more
