Investment thesis - exceptional performance, but EPS growth is slowing.

IBM has clear competitive advantages in providing leading technology services and complete IT solutions to large corporates, in a manner that positions it to be indispensable to its customers. In our opinion, growth will slow further as key drivers lose steam.
