    Nothing new that we didn't know. The stock is falling as we speak, I am watching the demise of a company that I love. It's so unnecessary

    The WSJ also said that cutting taxes on the rich (supply side economics) would create heaven on Earth.

    Please don't think that it cannot happen, as much as I do not want it to. It could easily become a reality, anything is possible in this current economic climate.

    I'm sure they will pick up in frequency heading up to the earnings call. Even if RIM were to have their best quarter ever people would still hammer them.

    Oooooh. Is this another one of those "RIM is the next Nokia" or "Will RIM be bought out" threads with nothing more than a new title?

    If one person calls you a horse, - they may be crazy. Two people ignore it. If three people call you a horse, time to go buy hay.

    How many analysts in both the financial and technical worlds need to report on the problems with RIMM before people wake up? Are you tired of reading the bad stuff about RIMM - me too! But removing international sales figures, there unfortunately isn't much good news to report on.

    And why would you do that? Did the rest of the world fall off the map and no one tell me? So everyone else's sales figures are US only and not all sales.... Must have missed that.

    It would also represent revenue growth of only 21% over the same period last year; RIM has averaged top-line quarterly growth of 63% over the last four years,
    ONLY 21% revenue growth over when they were doing ok this time last year... I bet there's a ton of companies wishing they were "failing" like RIM...

    There's a big difference between doing well and not doing as well as the analysts projected...

    True, but when you revise your own guidance (which is generally conservative to begin with), you're not doing well.

    if those PB shipment estimates are accurate, that is pretty damn good considering that it was only available for only 5 or 6 weeks of the quarter.

    If you revise your guidance but then don't hit, then it would be a problem. They were bringing the reality to the guidance, not overpromising and under delivering, not relying on analysts. A lot of it depends on your perspective. They aren't making the record profits of a year or two ago, but its not like they are losing money and going into the red. As long as they are a profitable, viable company, it is a good thing for its consumers. It may or may not be good for the people investing in and trading shares of RIM, depends on your position.

    Which is basically what has happened for a good portion of the last two years...

    I look at RIM's stock price as opportunity!

    At $30 a share I will buy it for sure.

    it kills me that "analysts" see this " It would also represent revenue growth of only 21% over the same period last year" as bad??? BAHAHAHAHAHA how is a GROWTH OF 21% from a year ago bad in any way? that is just stupid...
    so its not what they predicted... but they didnt even come close to losing growth.. which would be bad.
