After the closing bell on Jan 24, International Business Machines IBM cheered investors as it reported solid fourth-quarter 2021 results, beating earnings estimates. Though the software giant lagged on revenues, it logged in its best revenue growth since 2011, bolstered by its cloud and consulting businesses.

IBM shares jumped as much as 7.5% in aftermarket hours. Investors could easily tap the opportune moment by investing in ETFs with the highest allocation to this tech giant. Some of these include First Trust NASDAQ Technology Dividend Index Fund TDIV, Invesco Dow Jones Industrial Average Dividend ETF DJD, WBI Power Factor High Dividend ETF WBIY, Global Beta Smart Income ETF GBDV and US Equity Dividend Select ETF RNDV.

Earnings in Focus

Earnings per share came in at $3.35, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3.39 and improving 78% from the year-ago earnings. Revenues grew 6.5% year over year to $16.7 billion but fell short of the consensus estimate of $17.5 billion. Notably, the revenue growth represents the best sales growth in 10 years, indicating that the company’s efforts to transform the 110-year-old tech giant are bearing fruit (see: all the Technology ETFs here).

The 110-year-old company has doubled down on the software and consulting businesses after shedding its former managed infrastructure unit in November, following years of growth and margin pressures. IBM expects mid-single-digit revenue growth in 2022 plus a boost from incremental sales to Kyndryl, a new public company, of about 3%.
