    Analyst says its a "golden opportunity" to buy RIM shares

    Advertisement





    On June 25, RIM posted record first-quarter results that many companies would kill for in these times of economic hardship.


    Research In Motion is getting a lot of static, and its stock is under siege. That, to me, represents a golden opportunity.

    Shares of the maker of the ubiquitous BlackBerry, a wireless e-mail and phone device, have been in a funk since June 25, when it posted its first-quarter results. The stock has tumbled from $142 on June 25 to $115 on July 3. But if you know the company—or have studied the historical behavior of its stock—you would be buying shares at these depressed levels.

    So why is the stock reeling? Here's what happened. On June 25, RIM posted record first-quarter results that many companies would kill for in these times of economic hardship. Revenues streaked up 107%, to $2.24 billion, and profits soared 115%, to 84˘ a share. But they weren't large enough to impress the Street: The consensus analysts' estimates projected revenues of $2.27 billion and per-share earnings of 85˘—a penny more.

    Interesting article. Why, just last week, when my Sprint stock reached the $9.00 mark, I sold every share I had and bought RIM. I have confidence that when the new OS and handsets start hitting the streets, it's going to go way up again.

    it's definitely true that the market fluctuates but i'm not so sure I'd want to invest on them. I mean don't get me wrong i love their phones and i'm a true addict but with the Iphone coming out you know there are still gonna be those naive people who did not learn from the first Iphone and will surely buy more than those buying blackberries so if anything it would be a good move to buy apple shares instead. That is if you wanna make money...all from a business point of view nothing against RIM or anything like that. That's just my 2cents.

    Buying Stock

    If you've not bought stock before you need to do your research before you do.

    The easiest way to buy is through an online broker e.g. https://wwws.ameritrade.com

    There are essentially two principle types of purchase: speculation and investment.

    With an investment you are generally looking for a longterm gain and will hold the stock for a period through ups and downs. Investments (when made advisedly) are often perceived to be lower risk.

    Speculation is more like gambling. Higher risk, short term gain.

    RIM has fallen considerably over the last month after a four month steady rise. It could be a good bet, but Apple sales are doubtlessly having an effect as is the falling price of oil. Both RIMM and APPL are quite volatile but you can make a good return through speculating and investing in either. Obviously if you buy buy and sell at the wrong time you can lose a lot too.

    Suggested minimum reading for 1st timers:-

    I remember when this stock was 45.18. I missed the boat back then.
