What are fundamental factors?

Not great, but with good potential! IBM has issues with its financial position as short-term assets cover neither short-term nor long-term liabilities. Also, IBM’s debt to equity ratio (260,7%) is considered high. Nevertheless, IBM is undervalued based on the cash flows the company is expected to generate in the future.  



How has IBM been doing? 

It was doing good! Global digitalization is increasing a positive trend for IBM’s earnings. This trend is expected to continue. The company primarily generates revenues from Cloud & Cognitive Software Segment. During the 2nd quarter of 2021 IBM has signed contracts with Verizon offering their Cloud services to run its 5G networks. Also, the company entered 30 new partnerships in the edge computing market segment, such as Intel, Lumen Technologies, NetApp, etc. These facts indicate a possible increase in IBM's financial performance during the 2nd quarter of 2021.  

Let’s look at the chart!

On the 4-hour chart, IBM located between 145$ and 137$ lines. 145$ trend line, also, is an interception point of 50 and 100-period moving averages, so it seems to be a very strong resistance level. If IBM would break this resistance the goal would be 152$.  

On the other hand, the move down to the 200-period and breaking through it could send IBM price down to 137$ and 132$ support lines.
