While many investors see IBM as a company that past its prime, the firm’s situation is now better than most people appreciate. IBM got rid of its slowest-moving business with the recent spin-off, Kyndryl Holdings Inc. IBM’s revenues bottomed out in fiscal year 2020, and the company has now returned to top-line growth. With its investments in cloud computing and artificial intelligence starting to pay off, it seems that IBM has turned the corner. Shares also yield a generous 4.64%. Therefore, this stock is for long -term investors that want to own a high-tech company that pay high dividends.
