IBM earnings are due tomorrow after hours, so it is worth having a look at the stock’s seasonal pattern around this time of the year.
Over the last 15 years IBM has lost an average of -3.63% between October 18 and November 21. The stock has lost value a total of 9 times.

In contrast Microsoft stock has gained a total of 10 times in the last 15 years between the same dates and gained an average of 2.79%. So, it seems that Microsoft earnings periods is stronger than IBM’s!
