IBM Downgrade, No More Big Money in Big Blue?

Guy Adami might not like this next item.

Wells Fargo downgraded his favorite tech stock, IBM, to “Market Perform” from “Outperform” saying near term upside is limited.

In the past Adami has said he thinks IBM is heading to $200.

But Wells analyst Jason Maynard says we just don’t think the multiple is going to expand.

What should you make of the downgrade?

Trader Jon Najarian is ignoring it. “I think this is a classic case of a winner who can’t wait to take one off. I see a lot more upside.”

Trader Karen Finerman likes IBM. “They’ve been able to execute, execute, execute,” she says, although she concedes there’s probably more upside in other names.

Rather than put money to work in IBM, trader Joe Terranova suggests allocating capital to Google.

Trader Tim Seymour prefers long Intel . "This is the place to play because it's best of breed and it's a value. I'd go for the value at a time when investors are clearly rotating into value names."
