BlackBerry Investors Are Panicking Needlessly

BB

Wall Street was disappointed withBlackBerry's (NYSE: BB) fiscal first-quarter performance even though the company beat analyst estimates on both revenue and earnings. Investors were dissatified with the slowdown in the company's enterprise software and services business, which tumbled nearly 18% year over year, dragging down revenue by 11%. But a closer look at BlackBerry's latest results makes it clear that investors are overreacting. Investors shouldn't be fixated on the 14% drop in enterprise software and services revenue that was caused by a change in accounting principles. The company used to get around 20% to 30% of its revenue by selling perpetual licenses wherein it used to recognize the revenue up front, so there will be transition pains thanks to the change in accounting practice. But at the same time, investors shouldn't miss the fact that BlackBerry's deferred revenue grew massively due to this shift.

Valuation on BlackBerry Stock Is a Tough Pill to Swallow

BB

The era of BlackBerry smartphones is coming to a close. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing for BB stock. The writing was on the wall for BlackBerry to lose the smartphone race for some time now. That is why back in late 2013, contrarian CEO John Chen took over at BlackBerry with the intention of pivoting the company from smartphone hardware to connected-things software and services. In response, BB stock has gone from below $6 in late 2013 to $10 today. But, this rally has come under fire recently thanks to slowing growth in the software business.

BB Stock: Is BlackBerry Stock Worth a Look After the Bloodbath?

BB

Let’s start with some good news: Last month, BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) posted earnings of 3 pennies per share, topping Wall Street’s expectations by, well, 3 pennies per share. Revenue also came in better than expected: $213 million for the first quarter compared to expectations of $208 million. But it was still a 9% year-over-year decline on the top line, and BB stock went tumbling as a result. The day after announcing this, shares of BB stock lost 9%. Revenue from its enterprise software and services business rose 18% during the first quarter, too, which seems promising. But overall, the company isn’t currently very profitable, is slated to shrink earnings by 17% per year over the next half-decade, and costs six times its sales.
