Its easy to postpone making decisions on life insurance, because imagining your own death is so unpleasant.

But try to put that aside, because if you have a family or a spouse or a partner or love someone, its important to make sure theyd be prepared to handle their finances if something happens to you.

Love means you are willing to sacrifice for someone else, and obtaining and keeping a proper amount of life insurance coverage may well represent a very small sacrifice for you.

    The problem that I have with IBM at the moment is that the whole ‘strategic imperatives’ segment has fierce competition, which will only intensify in the years to come. There is no doubt that areas such as “Cognitive Solutions” and the “Cloud” will continue to hold their own going forward, especially due to IBM’s current acquisition rate. This is why I don’t see a problem with its revenue growth, due to the $5.4 billion already invested in acquisitions thus far this year. However, IBM faces fierce competition from companies such as Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT),Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)and Alphabet Inc-C (NSDQ:GOOG)that will keep spending at similar levels (if not higher) to develop their own technologies. Therefore, the question that arises is whether IBM can grow its margins in a competitive environment such as this. Remember, IBM became a powerhouse in the tech sector because of the huge switching costs associated with its hardware, software and services. I don’t see the same stickiness with many of the imperatives (Security, etc) despite their robust revenue growth at present.
