BlackBerry Ltd. jumped the most since January after an industry website reported the company’s newest phone is being sold at Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

The BlackBerry Priv, unveiled last month, is sold in the U.S. through AT&T Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and the company’s own website. Adding Wal-Mart brings a new outlet for sales of the phone during the busy holiday shopping season.
