Will Anyone Save RIM? (Update 1)

RIM announced, however, that it will delay the launch of BlackBerry 10 (formerly QNX, and BBX) phones until the "latter part of 2012", representing yet another blow for the company. RIM has been losing market share to Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating system, with U.S. revenues declining in the third quarter.

Despite its challenges, RIM's still worthy of investor attention, according to Sanford Bernstein analyst Pierre Ferragu. "As management's current denial position is getting less and less tenable and as they committed yesterday to explore multiple strategic opportunities, we see too much upside risk to recommend a short position to investors and maintain our market-perform rating," he explained, in a note released on Friday. Sanford Bernstein has a $16 price target on RIM's shares.

Ferragu's not alone in seeing some light amidst the RIM gloom. Leon Cooperman of Omega Advisors, for example, has purchased a 1.4 million share stake in the company, as he hopes "they've [RIM] seen the worst." Cooperman noted RIM's vast intellectual property as part of the investment thesis.
