IBM price target lowered to $125 from $135 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst James Kisner lowered his price target for IBM (IBM) to $125 and reiterates an Underperform rating on the shares. While channel checks indicate IBM's Watson platform remains one of the most complete cognitive platforms available in the marketplace today, the "hefty services" component of many artificial intelligence deployments will be a hindrance to adoption, Kisner tells investors in a research note titled "Creating Shareholder Value with AI? Not so Elementary, My Dear Watson." The analyst also believes IBM looks "outgunned in the war" for AI talent and will likely see increasing competition. Kisner adds that his firm believes Nvidia (NVDA) is the biggest beneficiary of ramping AI adoption. He lists Pure Storage (PSTG) and Mellanox (MLNX) as other beneficiaries.

However, the analysts say that the company's operating margin guidance of 6%-10% could raise concerns about its profitability.But they believe that the company "is positioning itself to take advantage of growth areas in the market, including next-generation data such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, leading cloud providers in SaaS and IaaS, and enterprise hybrid cloud." The analysts keep a $16 price target and an Outperform rating on the stock.
