+ Watch BBRY
on My Watchlist
The company behind the BlackBerry, Research In Motion provides a range of wireless hardware, software, and services.
Dead in the water for a long time now.
They have no market to sell to,only only old customers, a patent portfolio and physical assets. That does not command much value as a stock.
The BBRY relationship with Ford will give the company a near-term boost while it rebuilds its base.
Transforming the business from consumer to enterprise and services. Strong opportunity for significant gains. John Chen is a strong leader.
BBRY's QNX and enterprise divisions might be enough to put a floor on the stock here.
lack of innovation
Automotive apps and control of the infotainment stack in cars.
I lifted the idea from jakilathehun who got it from the Citron Research below. The argument about the shift from devices to Enterprise Software going overlooked makes sense to me but what I know about Enterprise Software and $5.00 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. It's worth following in CAPS though.http://www.citronresearch.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/the-new-bbry-final.pdfLesson #2, my watch list in CAPS has done fantastic lately with a number of stocks I found interesting but didn't pull the trigger into full CAPS rec's. I was holding out for a market correction to drive the price of BBRY down and got too cute watching BBRY run up until this pull back put BBRY only 5% higher than my watch list price and 2.5 points in CAPS. It was tempting to hold out for my watch list entry or better but that's just anchoring and this is a good opportunity to train myself to break the "anchoring" bad habit.
EVENTUALLY VALUE OF THIS CO. WILL BE REALIZED , NEW CEO FINALLY IS THINKING OUT OF THE BOX.
While past performance is no indicator of future success, BBRY's CEO has ridden the comeback bull once before. In addition to his track record, BBRY has the name recognition of security in an increasingly worrisome data climate. While a single security breach would disrupt all of their momentum, the size of BlackBerry's IP portfolio still provides an extensive asset base.
Where there is still Money and new CEO/ideas then there is still opportunity for growth.
A changed management is everything, still have a worldwide brand and distribution channel, great R&D team, now is more Enterprise software focus.
Companies tend to grow or shrink to the size of their leadership, almost regardless of products and markets. John Chen is a big thinking proven turnaround CEO who took over BBRY last fall. Enterprises will make deals with Blackberry now which otherwise might have been reticent due to existential concerns. The hardware devices might recover or they might not. BBM, QNX, and new initiatives/products will likely reposition the company.Being right 75% of the time in the stock market can make you rich. My bet is that the odds of a BBRY share price multi bagger win over time are at least that good.
Dan Loeb is on board and the company has new management that's working on some interesting opportunities to make money outside of its core business of phones, such as BBM and QNX.Deej
My readings have led me to believe that this may be a new weed, growing from the almost dead stump of root that begat the original plant....Mr. Chen may be the catalyst and mentor over the rebirth, with regards to getting further out of the manufacturing of technics, and further into the realm of software and services...w/ the right talent, this is the best possibility... I think this will double the stock price inside 12-20 months, as they've bottomed out and STILL have stayed in business....that sez a lot about the, 'left behind' engineers and management.....@ this time, they're hovering @ $9ish/share....yall?...convince me I'm wrong...
They're done and that's it.
