IBM upgraded to Buy on earnings growth at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded IBM to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $185 from $170. Analyst Wamsi Mohan expects 2017 profits to grow as earnings have stabilized and negative revisions are unlikely and expects tailwinds from moderating pace of investments and savings from restructuring efforts. Further, the analyst expects IBM transnational revenues to recovery driven by the mainframe cycle in 2017 and the adoption of a Hybrid cloud model. Mohan said IBM is the most under owned tech named by large-cap US fund managers and provides upside from accumulation.

Underperform
IBM likely decline in earnings not reflected in stock, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst James Kisner said his analysis suggests that IBM's software service/support revenue may have declined 4% in calendar 2015 and could also be falling organically this year, which he calls "particularly troubling" in light of steep declines in transactional sales. Continuing annual declines of roughly 3% in the Software business could drive a 5-6% headwind to EPS annually through 2020, Kisner tells investor. The analyst cut his EPS estimates for IBM based on reduced expectations for the Software business and expectations for 2017 IP Income to be below consensus. Kisner reiterates his Underperform rating and $125 price target on IBM shares.
