Research In Motion, Qualcomm: Tech Winners & Losers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Ubiquiti Networks (UBNT - Get Report) was a rare bright spot Thursday, up 0.79% to $14.

Shares of RIM dropped 2.33% to $9.22.

Qualcomm (QCOM - Get Report) announced plans to overhaul its corporate structure early on Thursday driving shares south.

"Our internal reorganization will provide even greater protection for our industry-leading intellectual property portfolio as our products and services businesses seek to accelerate innovation and deliver our products to market quickly," Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs explained in the company's statement. "We are confident that this change to our corporate structure will be accomplished with little to no disruption to employees and customers."

Qualcomm shares slumped 2% to $53.81 during Thursday trade.

Shares of VMware's (VMW - Get Report) continued to fall on news of a competing low-cost product from Red Hat (RHT - Get Report).
