The following video is part of senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker's "Top 25 Tech Stocks" series, where he reveals 25 great tech companies for investors looking for new ideas across the sector.

In today's edition, Eric looks at venerable old Big Blue. It's a company he's previously recommended investors purchase, and despite its steep run-up and higher valuation than peers such as Hewlett-Packard, Eric still believes IBM is a great stock that will be a long-term outperformer.
