If you are looking for exposure to the tech industry but do not want the company specific risk, you can look at ETF products that cover the sector. Not only can IBM suffer from competition, the needs of the tech community could shift and make the company obsolete. Some of the reports you can look at are the 8-K and the 10-K report, as this will have the numbers from the recent quarters, along with commentary from the executives, detailing how they see the future will be for the company.
Some of the risks to keep in mind before investing is the company specific risk, such as obsolete products and less demand for hardware and software provided by the company. Read into reports to see how the board is reacting to the current market conditions and if there are potential product risks. A second risk to keep in mind is product quality, as is the case with many tech companies, if the product quality begins to slip, people will shop elsewhere. Lastly, just ensure the company can keep up with the competition and maintains their market share.
