IBM’s Security segment is showing strong growth, selling into a large and expanding market. A potential key competitive advantage of IBM’s Security offering is its use of AI/Watson capabilities. We view a return to consistent organic growth and margin expansion as necessary for sustainable multiple expansion for IBM from present levels. We await better visibility on the company’s ability to consistently grow the business and scale margins.”
