Is RIM a $25 Stock?

On Friday the traders were taking a long hard look at Research in Motion after Jefferies downgraded the BlackBerry maker to "Underperform" from "Hold," saying sales of its latest smartphones were lackluster.

As you may know, bulls started buying this stock after it made a multi-year low over the summer of $21.60 on the belief that the company’s patents could make it an attractive takeout target.

However, Misek believes that’s now priced in.

And he's concerned that in an effort to compete with the iPhone, RIM is rushing its next generation smartphone out the door and as a result, "features are being stripped."

His price target is $25.

After a note like this, the Fast traders wanted to get the latest 'straight from the horses mouth," so to speak. We thought you would too. Watch our exclusive interview with Peter Misek now!
