$160.29 $0.03 (0.02%) IBM stock closing price Apr 28, 2017 (Closing)

IBM stock price history gives valuable lesson on how to invest in technology sector. IBM historical stock price shows that during the last decade the company was able to give ever increasing profit from stagnant topline which in turn led to higher share price. This was done on the back of higher margins. The stock increased from $77 per share in 2002 to $208 per share by 2012. However this approach of getting more bang for every buck has been perceived in many circles as the main cause of lower client satisfaction and reduction in market share.
