Earnings in Focus
Earnings per share came in at $2.31, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.29 but declining 0.85% from the year-ago earnings. Revenues grew 9% year over year to $15.5 billion and edged past the consensus estimate of $15.1 billion (see:
all the Technology ETFs here). Strong demand at its consulting and infrastructure businesses drove the solid results. Consulting revenues increased 9.8% while infrastructure revenues climbed 19% from the year-ago levels. Although a strong dollar and shutting down of Russia operations has put pressure on IBM's near-term results, the company’s full-year revenues are still expected to grow at the upper end of mid-single-digit revenue growth at constant currency. Managment cautioned that the impact of the strongest dollar in more than two decades would erode full-year sales by around $3.5 billion.
