IBM traded 7% lower on Wednesday morning, after beating Wall Street consensus for earnings and revenue but missing on guidance.

IBM reported earnings per share of $2.45 and total revenue of $19.1 billion, compared to analyst expectations of $2.42 and $18.8 billion. However, the company reaffirmed its guidance for the year at $13.80, which was below expectations of $13.83.
