Dow Jones Review: IBM

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics from across the investing world.

In this series, John and David will be revisiting some calls they made on individual stocks of the Dow. Today's stock is IBM, which has slightly underperformed the Dow average so far in 2012. John and David believe that IBM will outperform the market over the next five years, and they see no reason to change that outlook. The company has been doubling down on the big data trend, and has been very shareholder friendly in recent years. Combine all that with the fact that Warren Buffett really likes IBM, and John and David feel pretty confident about the company's prospects in the future.

IBM pays a pretty solid dividend, but it's not one of the highest-yielding stocks in the Dow. If you're interested in learning more about some outstanding companies that pay somewhat higher yields, The Motley Fool has compiled a special free report outlining our top nine dependable, dividend-paying stocks.
