as of February 14, 2023

Remember Watson? The AI that crushed Jeopardy? Yeah, neither do ChatGPT users. IBM is a consulting firm, not a technology firm,. It’s closer to Accenture than Apple or Google. That’s the biggest problem it has. That is why the firm only gets $190k per employee on the top line and about $6,000 in bottom line net profit. That’s horrific. Apple generates 100x more per employee. Yet, with a $120 billion market cap, for some reason IBM looks cheap. I want to cheer for this company, but they’ve got to figure out how to become a technology company again.
