BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) Price Target Maintained
On February 2, 2016, when shares of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) were trading under $7 per share, Stock Traders Daily placed a Strong Buy Rating on the stock. Since then the stock has increased by approximately 16%. BBRY is now approaching our target levels, so this article serves as an update to the Strong Buy Recommendation.
With all of the focus on AAPL recently, it's easy to forget that BBRY is the leader in mobile security, and it is due to its positioning that BBRY remains viable. As a pure phone play, BBRY is less relevant of course, but as a mobile security company, BBRY is putting together a nice vertical channel.
Clearly the above is a general observation, but a general understanding is all that is needed when trading stocks like this. Looking at BBRY from a valuation standpoint, the stock was trading virtually on par with Revenue (Revenue and market cap were almost the same), at the beginning of February, while revenue was expected to increase too. That told us BBRY was a value and a viable opportunity.
Now he stock is approaching our resistance levels. In our longer term observations, resistance is LT P3, a level that will update periodically as the stock moves. As we get closer o that level we will be more compelled to recommend taking profits.
