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)

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)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe BlackBerry faces challenges and must execute on further developing an enterprise sales channel to meaningfully accelerate software sales.
