  • Based on its First Quarter 2019 earnings report, IBM continues to suffer from declining revenue.
  • IBM’s cloud computing business is not growing fast enough to offset the decline in mainframe hardware/software.
  • Management should consider buying Corel Corporation so it can compete better against enterprise SaaS leaders Microsoft and Adobe.
  • Corel has software products which can compete against Adobe Creative Cloud and Office 365.
  • After buying Corel Corporation, IBM can rename and market CorelDraw, CorelCAD, and WordPerfect suites as SaaS-only products.

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Autodesk’s stock already has a year-to-date return of +24.04%. I still reiterate a buy rating for this 3D/CAD/CAM software leader.
  • I argued six months ago that ADSK can shoot up to $200. This price target could turn out to be true within the next six months.

  • More than 95% of ADSK shares are owned by institutional investors. Small retail investors can profit from imitating the stock picking bets of institutional investors.

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • The software-centric business of Microsoft makes it a safer long-term investment than Apple.
  • Unlike Apple, Microsoft has zero hardware exposure to China’s cold war with Trump. The smartphone business has reached peak status and is already on the decline.
  • While Apple is growing its Services business segment, Microsoft’s cloud-first Software-As-A-Service will always generate the bigger revenue/net income.
  • Like Apple and its iTunes iOS platform, Microsoft is also a giant beneficiary of the growing video games industry.
  • I Know First has a very bullish 12-month market trend forecast for MSFT.

Summary:

  • The stock price of 3D Systems has more than doubled since my last buy rating for it last February 23. I still endorse this stock as a buy.
  • My fearless forecast is that DDD can hit $30 within the next 12 months. Additive manufacturing’s gradual shift from prototyping to production applications is a long-term tailwind for 3D Systems.
  • The 2018 Wohlers Report revealed that the 3D printing industry grew 21% to $7.3 billion in 2017. Sales of 3D-printed parts from independent service bureaus contributed $2.995 billion.
  • I Know First’s AI still gives DDD a bullish one-year algorithmic market trend forecast.
