International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), founded in 1911, is a global technology and consulting company.

Initially focused on punch-card tabulating machines, IBM became a leading hardware, software, and services provider.

Its business operations span various sectors, including cloud computing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and quantum computing.

The company’s notable acquisitions and mergers include the purchase of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting in 2002, bolstering its consulting services, and Red Hat in 2019, fortifying its position in the cloud computing market.

IBM’s scope extends across industries, serving clients in over 170 countries.

IBM’s share price history offers valuable lessons for investors, highlighting the cyclical nature of markets, the importance of innovation and adaptation, and the need for a long-term perspective.

Anyone who would have invested in IBM considering the emergence of new technologies in the early 1990s would have generated nearly 1200% returns in just five and a half years.

The company’s share grew from $10.98 in October 1993 to $120.05 in July 1999. This was at the peak of the dot-com bubble when most companies belonging to this sector delivered returns beyond anyone’s imagination.

Recently, IBM’s focus on hybrid cloud and AI solutions has also reignited investor interest.
