What are Wall Street analysts saying about BlackBerry stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BlackBerry stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "BlackBerry delivers one of the most secure end-to-end mobile enterprise solutions in the market through a broad portfolio of products and services. With a holistic growth model, focusing both on organic and inorganic investments, the company aims to extend its market leadership in the enterprise mobility segment. Robust software sales are aiding BlackBerry immensely while growth in its cybersecurity business with opportune acquisitions remains a huge positive. BlackBerry has also provided bullish outlook for software and service revenues in fiscal 2019. However, the stock has underperformed the industry in the past six months on an average. High technological obsolescence remains a challenge for BlackBerry, increasing its operating costs through continuous R&D efforts for new product introductions to fend off competition. Adverse foreign currency translation and high debt levels remain other headwinds for the company." (12/3/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We believe this transaction accelerates BlackBerry’s strategy of leading secure endpoint enterprise-of-things (“EoT”) communications, benefits multiple areas of the business across UEM, QNX and Spark, and drives potential synergies given the complementary customer bases. With the IoT market’s heightened growth expectations of both security and AI, as well as investor anticipation for BlackBerry’s cash deployment, we believe the transaction will be well received by the market. However, given post-merger platform integration that needs completion before synergies are realized and the premium deal multiple, we maintain our HOLD rating and $11 price target and await more color on pro forma financial impact from management post closing the acquisition."
