Research In Collapse

Tyler Durden's picture




 

(We used RIMBERRRRR as the title the last several times... trying to keep it fresh here people)

It's not the beginning of the end. That was a few quarters ago. So, the middle of the end for RIM? Or the end of the end?

Via Bloomberg:

  • RESEARCH IN MOTION 3Q ADJ. EPS $1.27    
  • RESEARCH IN MOTION 3Q REV. $5.17B, EST. $5.22B
  • RESEARCH IN MOTION SEES 4Q ADJ EPS 80C-95C, EST.$1.08
  • RIMM SEES 4Q BLACKBERRY SHIPMENTS 11M-12M UNITS, EST. 12.8M
  • RIMM SEES 4Q REVENUE OF $4600-4800bn, EST. $4854.30
  • RESEARCH IN MOTION 3Q GROSS MARGIN 36.7%, EST. 37.1%
  • RESEARCH IN MOTION SEES 4Q GROSS MARGIN 38%
  • RIMM SHIPPED 150,000 BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK TABLETS IN 3Q - that would be the since cancelled Playbook yes?

Also, if you though churn was reserved for GM and for rehypothecation, you were wrong:

  • RIMM 3Q SUBSCRIBERS UP 35% YEAR-OVER-YEAR TO ALMOST 75M

And so the once uber-popular Momo stocks dropping like flies.

Which begs the question: have all the StockTwits fly by night momentum chasing "traders" learned how to add and subtract yet, or are the planning on becoming farmers.

I didn't have time to check.  I was too busy buying Greek bonds and Greek bank stocks.  My financial advisor, some guy named Leo Komalakamakis, or something like that, told me that we would be able to retire in a matter of months if I follow his advice.  He seems like a sharp guy.  I look forward to my retirement.

I'll give you an address after they stop trading at 90x earnings.

EDIT -- My bad: 49x earnings (it was 90 last time I checked like 2 weeks ago)

...49x though? I'm shorting this bitch and besides their food blows. Even if I lose every penny I'll still be happy because their food sucks and I know I made the right decision to short it. It tastes like dog food. If I wanted rice in a tortilla I'd move to Mexico... or go to taco bell and get it for 49x less fiat than they charge. Dog food == dog food. The only difference is price.

It's a fad and it doesn't have golden arches. They can't reinvent themselves and offer anything other than the Mexican shit fare of beans, tacos, cheap beef or chicken. Well, maybe they can stuff it in a blender and start offering rice and bean shakes or Mexican specialty coffees.

Who cares? Their P/E is 49 and they operate restaurants. P/E of MCD is 19 and MCD is able to reinvent themselves according to whatever the taste du jour is.

CMG is only down to 49x earnings in fantasty unicorns-munching-on-inexpensive-and-healthy-GMO-rice land.

In the real world, it's still a bloated turd of a burrito floating on the byproduct of sell-side researrch Montezuma's Revenge. It's McDonald's pig of a sister wearing lots of slutty lipstick.

Here's a generally reliable rule of thumb, as distasteful and demeaning as the process may be:   Any stock that's both been on Goldman's convict buy list and has had its own dedicated segment on James Jimmy Jam Cramer's Winners Of The New World-esque soundboard of bullshit is destined to lose 95%+ of its value given enough time, peak to trough.

AAPL is next.  Overloaded momo turd bird.

I do work for a web analytics company and i-phone traffic has been dropping all year.

I am pretty sure aaple had it wrong with saggy sales last quarter being because people were waiting for i-phone 4.  They weren't waiting....they were buying androids.  They discovered that phones and tablets can play flash,  they want 4g, they want better phone cases and cameras.  They like free apps.  They like devices that work great without having to buy shitloads of expensive apps

I think aapl is $275 or less by end of January 2012.....and not coming back

Phones running Android are an abomination. Have you seen the interface lag on those pieces of shit? There's a reason why there's a waiting list for the 4s with all the carriers and you can walk in to any carrier and pickup a cheap phone running Android.

I have no doubt Android traffic will overtake iOS traffic as Android phones are for poors that can't be bothered to pay $.99 for an app.

some android phones leave a bit to be desired.  I will not dispute that.

There are several that kill the shit out of any aapl crap if you want a nice device that actually works with the entire internet and office documents.

I know a lot of i-tards think its fun to be cool and own aapl crap, but the coolness is gone and they are behind the times.

You cannot stay relevant in technology being as slow as aapl has been lately reacting to how much has changed even in the last six months.

i-phone 5 will look like an atari 2600 compared to other phones that are already on the market by the time it finally comes out if the 4s is any indication of how far behind they are.  I was astonished when that thing came out. 

good luck if you hold the stock.

RIMM is TOAST.

The stock is worth $5, even with patents.

They are a buyout target, if not a revolt by shareholders.

They charge a fee for connection to Microsoft Exchange email where others are free.

They are on a steep downhill loss of market share to iPhones and Droid and people using net books and pads (anything other than playbook) to do email.

Get out NOW or wait for a pop on a takeover bid.

Two years ago, as the iPhone was starting to take market share, Blackberry users and Network Admins were waiting for over six months for a software update from RIMM to fix bugs communicating with our Exchange server securely.

Users were saying "I'm paying a monthly subscription fee to RIMM for a buggy connection when my friends with an iPhone are doing it for free and with no problems?".

OOOPS.

That was TWO YEARS AGO.

And now, Android and iPhone are eating RIMMS lunch because NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

They should become farmers. The working environment is better and they get all the food they can eat.

They are still making money - maybe $4/share over a year, but still with a PE of 10, that's a $40 stock... Love to see an announcement to pay out a dividend.

Was this posted before or after the 6% drop in afterhours trading for RIMM....?

 

Wait, does it even matter?

Don't know why they bothered. Apple won the tablet war before it even began.

Rumours a few months ago though, that Microsoft were circling around RIM, like a vulture looking for carrion to feed off.

Makes sense for them, knocking off one of their corporate smartphone competitors.

Also, forgot about their little cock up with the Core Switch replacement in Europe. 

Would have driven loads of customers Apple or Galaxy's way, just for the imbuggerance factor.

It's a matter of what is trending...RIM is NOT trending or should I say trending down. I did however get a new 9900 and the thing freakn' rocks. It's a huge improvement over their OS6.

I thought about listening to the conf call. But, I get distracted easily, with voices in my ear saying: "rim sucks, rim sucks. play pad sucks, services suck, outlook sucks, buy us please??"

I was a hardcore Nokia customer for years. In fact, my unlocked Nokia 6600 purchased in UK back in 2003 still works and has been put back into service for my GF use. I jumped ship and bought a torch 9800 late last year. I unlocked this phone and maintained tmobile even though during 5 a second start up, AT&T flash screen appears.

Never one problem with this phone other than tricking the best buy sales rep that I had an existing AT&T account to buy the phone flat out. As soon as he handed me the receipt and bagged phone.. I told him to fuck himself.

Later on, i preordered the PlayBook 64GB. I cannot complain about RIM. QNX upgrades have been loaded on this PB. My next phone will be QNX, skipping 7.0 OS.

As I'm typing on my PB to post this, Kevin at crackberry is a good site to follow. Not a BB fanboy to try selling you BS. However, using 48% of the full capabilities of PB features.

RIMMs relevance in the market passed months ago. Funny how folks talk about all these high flying stocks without looking at fundamentals and overlying market factors.

Roll your lossed into PCLN calls.. or long the stock  :)

Generally when iMoron market cap is threatened, bad news will prevail on the the TeeVee. BTW, Rooting is still going thru security issues. The BB development team is on the case.

So what are the business people using instead of a BlackBerry??  I don't see an alternative on the horizon. (iPhones are toys for girls, Androids are toys for geeks.)
