The Week Ending April 21

Topping this week's roundup of companies that had a rough week is IBM, which reported its 20th consecutive quarter of declining sales and saw its stock punished as a result.

Also making the list this week were Verizon, for its less-than-stellar earnings report that included its first decline in wireless subscribers; Zscaler, which faces additional patent infringement claims from Symantec; Qualcomm for having to pay nearly $1 billion to BlackBerry in a royalty payment dispute; and InterContinental Hotels Group for a security breach at more than 1,100 of its hotel properties.
