RIM Weakness Buying Opportunity?

Monday, 21 Jun 2010 | 5:40 PM ET

With smartphone demand exploding and RIM owning 45% of the US market, why have RIM shares plunged 20% over the past 3 months?

That’s the question circulating on Wall Street as investors grapple with stock’s anemic price action. (In the same period Apple has surged 20%.)

It seems headwinds are coming from two main areas:

1) Apple; which is expected to win more business clients with the launch of the new iPhone 4

2) Android; smartphones using this operating system are generating strong demand.

Tomorrow's Headlines Now
A look at the three headlines that might move markets tomorrow, with Doug Sipkin, Ticonderoga Securities analyst.

In fact, Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski believes RIM could see their market share plunge in the near future because of these influences. Jankowski has a 'sell' on the stock.

What's the trade?

Options action has been pretty bearish, reveals Mike Khouw of Cantor Fitzgerald.
