BlackBerry (BBRY) Stock | Why It Should Be In Your Portfolio


BlackBerry StockBlackBerry (BBRY) stocks have been a major topic of discussion in the tech market lately. While the stock seemed to be doing pretty well, and the outlook for the company was moving in the right direction, Goldman Sachs downgraded its rating of BlackBerry (BBRY) to “Sell” and reduced their target price. Following the unfounded downgrade, BlackBerry (BBRY) stocks fell dramatically in value. However, it seems as though the company is back on the uptrend; as most investors expected it to be. So, today I thought it would be fun to point out the most compelling reasons that BlackBerry (BBRY) should be in your portfolio regardless of what Goldman Sachs says.

BlackBerry (BBRY) Stock Is Dirt Cheap!

Thanks to Goldman Sachs, BlackBerry (BBRY) stock is dirt cheap at the moment. Currently, the stock is under $10 per share following the downtrend we saw earlier in the week. However, over the next 12 months, the stock has the potential to rise to $17 per share if all goes right. That’s the type of price movement that would make just about any investor’s mouth start watering.

Invest Where The Big Money Goes

BlackBerry (BBRY) Isn’t Just A Cell Phone Company Anymore

When you think of BlackBerry (BBRY), chances are that you think of the old phones with keypads that brought light to the smartphone era. While BlackBerry (BBRY) hasn’t given up and probably will never give up with regard to smartphones, the company has grown to be much bigger than a cell phone manufacturer.

These days, we live in a world of the internet of things. Companies all over the world are racing to connect as many people to the online community as possible. This drastic change in networking isn’t all focused online. As a matter of fact, it takes both hardware and software to make this technology even possible. These open the world to an entirely new industry, the industry of worldwide networking.

In this industry, the demand is exponential, the supply is minimal, and the potential for profit is unreal! The best part in all of this is that BlackBerry (BBRY) has a very big hand in this industry!

  2. You’re dead on. I’m a technologist, and it’s incredible to me how few of my colleagues grasp what is happening and how it will change the world for the better. By connecting medical devices to supercomputers (securely, of course, through BlackBerry’s unique network, better treatments are coming. In shipping, connecting containers will lead to massively improved efficiency and energy savings. In home and building automation, optimal climate control. In automotive, car manufacturers are collecting diagnostics and building better cars. This is happening right now, using BlackBerry technology. The possibilities are endless. Imagine if cities could get realtime data on potholes, how efficient it would be to get crews out. Endless possibilities and the net result will be a more efficient, sustainable, wealthy world.

    BlackBerry is at the forefront of this. And they make great phones too. This stock is a steal.

  3. Revenue will continue to be a challenge. Even if John Chen succeeds in increasing software sales, selling 10 million devices, monetizing BBM, the decline in SAF will be too great. As old BlackBerry devices are turned off, BlackBerry looses the monthly fee paid by the carrier to BlackBerry. Carriers have been desperate since 2011 to rid them self of these fees by pushing cheap Android phones in low income countries where BlackBerry has done well in the past. There is able 45 to 50 million users on the old system and that number falls 15 percent each quarter. Revenue from the other parts are not rising fast enough to ofset this fall.
