15:15 EDTIBMIBM says may see $250M pre-tax charge due to U.K. pension case
In a regulatory filing, IBM disclosed that proceedings to determine remedies in IBM UK's legal proceedings in London against the IBM UK Pensions Trust were held in July 2014, and in February 2015 the High Court held that for IBM to make changes to accruals under the plan would require a new consultation of the participants, but other changes, including to early retirement policy, would not require such consultation. IBM UK has appealed both the breach and remedies judgments and a decision is not expected until at least 2016. If the appeal is unsuccessful, the Court’s rulings would require IBM to reverse the changes made to the UK defined benefit plans retroactive to their effective dates. This could result in an estimated non-operating one-time pre-tax charge of approximately $250M, plus ongoing defined benefit related accruals. In addition, IBM UK is a defendant in approximately 290 individual actions brought since early 2010 by participants of the defined benefits plans who left IBM UK. These actions, which allege constructive dismissal and age discrimination, are pending before the Employment Tribunal in Southampton UK, IBM stated.

13:00 levels to watch
Shares appear to be trying to hold the line at the $550 area as the afternoon session begins. That is still over $68 of upside, but down nearly $42 from the after-hours session high yesterday. There is a risk the move is broadly extended and blow-off top at least in the short-term. Support is at the session low at $549.67. Without any established support price retracement is likely to follow round-number and common option strikes. Next support on that basis below the low would be $545 and then at $540. Resistance similarly is at $555.
