Research In Motion – Still in No Man’s Land

Research in Motion reported earnings (losses) after the close last night, September 27, 2012.  Because losses were less than estimates RIMM rallied after hours more than 20% from its 4 o’clock close.  RIMM also released their financial statements, which we imputed before our nightly computer run, to give us the model price chart below.

For those interested, a daily updated chart of RIMM subsequent to this post will be maintained on Facebook, here.

The important calculation to us is the EBV-3 line.  With the new balance sheet RIMM released, this level is $11.01.  Until the equity price of RIMM crosses this EBV level, there is no real information to act on in terms of trading or investing.  If and hopefully when RIMM crosses this threshold this will signal something more significant in terms of the future viability of the company.

Another important item to observe is the volatility of stock prices when they are trading below EBV-3.  This is “No Man’s Land” in terms fundamentals and stock activity.  With a reported 82 million shares shorted on RIMM, short sellers will get a lesson about trading below EBV-3, especially with option expiry occurring today.  (Got to love gamma week on this one!)

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
