IBM reverses Wall Street slump

NEW YORK — News that IBM will buy back more stock and raise its dividend helped pull major United States stock indexes out of a morning slump yesterday (this morning, Singapore time).

IBM and other technology stocks led the Standard & Poor’s 500 index up. The broad-market measure ended April with a 1.8 per cent gain, the sixth month in a row the index has climbed higher.

Warren Buffett is a SSH of IBM, and more than 15% weighting of his portfolio.

It's difficult to judge base on public info of the new CEO. I will take an indirect approach. Warren Buffett is very concern on top management appointment. If he is ok with her, i will opt to trust his judgement.

If I were to look at Warren Buffett quotes, his higher focus is on the business,

You should invest in a business that even a fool can run, because someday a fool will.
eg. Coca Cola many years back

When a management team with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.
eg. Berkshire Hathaway during Garment biz days

Sifu is right, his higher focus is always on business, but he had never chosen a fool as top management of his invested companies IIRC. Tongue

In the article quoted, probably half of it is on "Management - Business Execution"
