It depends on what your view of IBM is.

If you think of IBM as a mainframe company that's made so much money over the years that they have tried to branch out into other areas with varying levels of success then it's reasonably accurate and the cuts in that area came 20+ years ago and the customer base is now pretty stable

If you believe that IBM are a full stack IT company that's diversified into all areas of IT to avoid the cyclical nature of the mainframe lifecycle or that the next major mainframe growth cycle is just around the corner then you're drinking the Kool Aid.
