In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric look at Warren Buffett's recent purchase of IBM and what other "Buffett-like" tech companies have gotten cheap across the sector. With companies from Apple to Intel trading for P/Es in the low teens to single digits, investors should be taking a look at some of the value in the sector.

Buffett's buying IBM for a simple reason: It's a well-managed company with a strong business trading at reasonable levels.
