IBM stock was down 2.5 percent on Tuesday after the company disclosed earnings for the second quarter of the year, falling short of revenue estimates but beating earnings estimates.
IBM reiterated its guidance of at least $13.80 in earnings per share for the full year of 2017, in line with its guidance from the first quarter. Analysts had expected guidance of $13.68 per share.
Revenue from IBM's strategic imperatives of analytics, cloud, mobile, social and security was $8.8 billion, IBM said in a statement. Strategic imperatives now contribute 45 percent of IBM's total revenue, up from 42.8 percent in the first quarter, IBM said. Cloud revenue, including cloud delivered as a service, for the quarter was $3.9 billion, up 15 percent from last year. Analytics revenue of $5.1 billion was up 4 percent.
IBM's Technology Services and Cloud Platforms division came up with $8.4 billion in revenue, down 5.1 percent year over year. The Cognitive Solutions business produced $4.6 billion in revenue, down 2.5 percent.
IBM's Global Business Services group did $4.1 billion in revenue, which was down 3.7 percent, while the Systems segment contributed $1.7 billion in revenue, down 10.4 percent.
Given that IBM raised its quarterly dividend again in April, the company has now more than doubled its quarterly dividend in 2010, chief financial officer Martin Schroeter said during the company's conference call with financial analysts.
Also in the quarter, CNBC reported that Facebook was looking to move WhatsApp off of IBM's cloud and onto its own in-house data center infrastructure.
IBM stock has dropped more than 7 percent since the beginning of this year.
