Stocks to Watch: RIM, Red Hat, Nike

NEW YORK -- Research In Motion (RIMM) reported a fiscal third-quarter loss Thursday that was narrower than Wall Street's expectations.

The stock of the BlackBerry maker moved higher in after-hours trading Thursday but reversed course during an earnings call after RIM said it would change the way it charges customers service fees, putting a key source of revenue at risk.

RIM also said said spending on the launch of BlackBerry 10 will drive a fourth-quarter operating loss.

Revenue in the quarter rose 7% to $5.96 billion. Nike brand revenue rose 11%.

Nike said orders for shoes and apparel to be delivered between December and April rose 6% from last year to $9.3 billion.
