NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Research In Motion (RIMM) is a stock in freefall. I can't believe that anyone has held on to this stock but there are still some who pray for a dead-cat bounce from this dead horse.
I try to invest by being rational and unemotional but it seems there are some that consider this company a pity investment. I'd like to share a chart I drew using Barchart that compares the trading prices of RIMM and its peers over the past 3 1/2 years. While RIMM fell 90%, America Tower (AMT) rose 112%, Crown Castle International (RIMM) was up 167% and SBA Communications (SBAC) was up 136%.
The chart says it all:
Research In Motion designs, manufactures and markets wireless solutions for the mobile communications market worldwide. It provides platforms and solutions for access to information, including email, voice, instant messaging, short message service, Internet and Intranet-based browsing, and multimedia content through developing integrated hardware, software, and services.
