BlackBerry Making a Comeback
BlackBerry is in the market in its new avatar and with new products in tow.
While the stock spent the entire 2012 scaling new lows, it has delivered
astounding 40 percent upside in the past one month. However, the company is
not completely out of the woods as yet. Its future is securely tied to the
performance of its new BB10 devices. The company changed its name to emphasize
its new direction but it would need more substantial performance to keep up
the momentum. Register to download the free technical analysis on BlackBerry
The company reported encouraging sales volume for its new launched Z10
handset. The phones seem to be doing well in the UK and Canada, which are the
core markets for BlackBerry. However, in order to be truly successful, the
company would need to conquer the U.S. market as well. However, for that we
will have to wait till mid-March. The U.S. market will prove to be the true
test for BB10 devices.
While the company may rejoice in the performance of Z10, it should also keep
in view the circumstances leading up to their launch. The launch of itsBB10
devices was rescheduled multiple times, pointing to internal inefficiencies.
If BlackBerry wants to survive longer in a cut throat sector, it needs to sort
out its execution issues. Under the leadership of its new CEO, the company is
expected to mend its ways and is also expected to make a comeback in the
highly competitive mobile market.
BlackBerry has come a long way from its heydays. While its time of being the
undisputed leader in enterprise market is over, the company is now looking to
capture consumer market. The company will have to be really nimble to survive
in the ever-changing landscape of smartphone market. However, investors should
still be cautious of making any long-term commitment to BlackBerry shares.
