IBM Pummeled After Mixed Q1 Earnings, Lower Guidance


International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) shares are trading lower by $9.80 (5.4 percent) at $160.25 in Wednesday's session. After Tuesday's close, the company reported a Q1 EPS beat of $0.03 but came up shy on revenues by $200 million.

What is attracting hordes of sellers is the company's FY 2017 EPS guidance of at least $13.80, which is far below the Street's estimate of $14.12.

After a much lower open, IBM's stock managed only a $0.69 bounce to $162.45 before continuing its move lower. It has continued to make new lows for the day with the current one standing at $159.77 as of 10:41 a.m. EST. That marks the lowest level for the stock since it bottomed on December 6 at $158.93.

Since falling under the psychological $160.00 support level, it has staged a small rebound back into the lower $160.00 handle.
