What are analysts saying about BlackBerry Ltd stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "We are positive on BlackBerry's decision to end all internal hardware development and outsource the same to its partners.The company's new guidance with respect to the bottom line for fiscal 2017 is also encouraging. The company expects to return to profit in fiscal 2017. Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 will be revealed on Mar 31. Recently, the company entered into a deal with Chinese handset manufacturer TCL Communications to produce BlackBerry handsets for certain countries across the globe. The deal with Indian telecom enterprise, Optiemus Infracom Ltd  is also encouraging. Inspite of these positives, shares of BlackBerry have underperformed the broader industry over the past one year. Moreover, the company continues to grapple with headwinds like adverse foreign currency movements." (3/21/2017)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "more revenue becomes recurring." However, the firm is not ready to change its rating or price target, which remain Equal-Weight rated and at $7.Analysts James Faucette and Meta Marshall pointed out that BlackBerry sees 30 percent growth from its software/messaging business. They see 81 percent of second-quarter revenue from software/messaging was a recurring one. Therefore, the company needs to nearly double non-recurring revenue in the remaining period of the current fiscal year.In a research note, the brokerage said, "We think this will be a challenge to do, but perhaps the company is anticipating an uptick in perpetual license purchases at the end of the year. While the BlackBerry Radar deal signed with Caravan is a good win, we estimate that it only contributes $0.5 million in FY17 ($0.2–0.3 million of that recurring)." (9/29/2016)
