International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM) remains stuck in the mud. Despite the growth of cloud, artificial intelligence and blockchain, IBM’s core IT-services operation remains the lion’s share of the operation, and it is keeping its growth elsewhere from seeming impressive. IBM’s shares were down 8% so far in 2017. Trading at $153.50, it has a consensus target price of $163.74."
