What are analysts saying about BlackBerry Limited stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BlackBerry Limited stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BlackBerry have outperformed the Zacks categorized Wireless - Non US industry over the last three months. Ushering in further good news, the company's bottom line performance was better- than-expected in the first-quarter of fiscal 2018. The company's decision to end all internal hardware development and focus exclusively on software bussiness seems to be paying off.  BlackBerry expects its software business to either outperform or at least perform at par with the overall market in fiscal 2018. In fact, the company anticipates profitability (on an adjusted basis) and also expects to generate positive free cash flow in fiscal 2018. In order to strengthen its position in the software business, BlackBerry has recently inked multiple deals. However, the company's struggles on the top line front raise concerns." (6/28/2017)
  • 2. TD Securities analysts commented, "We have adjusted our estimates and increased our target price to $11.50 following the Qualcomm settlement. Impact: NEGATIVE The weak results this quarter have overshadowed some of the positive announcements made in the quarter. Despite the miss in software revenue, we see a number of near-term opportunities building in the pipeline that could contribute to a strong H2: Strong Radar traction: With FedEx as a customer, we believe that Radar’s opportunities will grow significantly. FedEx itself is a substantial customer, but we believe that it also serves as an important reference customer for new potential customers. We note that Radar has signed on increasingly larger customers in each of the last three quarters. The momentum seems to continue, with five proof-of-concepts moving to commercial discussions." (6/26/2017)
  • 3. Macquarie analysts commented, "more stable business environment for the company."Papageorgiou also noted that BlackBerry's market share of "infotainment" technologies in the auto sector stands at more than half of the entire market. However, the company only generates around $1.00 to $1.50 per vehicle, but the company believes this figure can grow as high as $5 per vehicle.Bottom line, the analyst acknowledged that there is still risk involved in BlackBerry's stock but said, "We believe the potential returns outweigh them." (4/3/2017)
  • 4. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe BlackBerry faces challenges and must execute on further developing an enterprise sales channel to meaningfully accelerate software sales. While we believe the senior management team is capable of executing against the market opportunity, we believe it could take several years for meaningful progress." (1/30/2017)
