Both its profit and revenue are projected to decline year-over-year, as the company continues to face a drop in smartphone sales and intensifying competition from leading handset makers, Zacks analysts said.
For the recent period, Wall Street is looking for a loss of 10 cents a share on revenue of $563.18 million, compared to a year ago, when the company reported earnings of 4 cents a share on revenue of $660 million.
Despite the challenges it has been facing, BlackBerry has been working on its cost-cutting efforts and its results should likely be benefited by its strong cash position, which encouraged the company to acquire a few businesses, Zacks analysts added.
Shares are increasing by 0.62% to $8.06 on Thursday.
Separately, BlackBerry has a "sell" rating and a letter grade of D at TheStreet Ratings because of the company's weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing stock performance.
TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this article's author.
