  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BlackBerry have outperformed the Zacks categorized Wireless - Non US industry over the last one month. Ushering in further good news, the company reported narrower- than-expected loss in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Its decision to end all internal hardware development and focus exclusively on software bussiness seems to be paying off. Loss also narrowed on a year-over-year basis. Lower costs boosted the company’s bottom-line performance. 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." (4/7/2017)
