12:43 EDTBBRYBlackBerry short squeeze possible after launch, earnings, Goldman says
Shares of BlackBerrry (BBRY) could undergo a short squeeze this week, driven by the launch of the company's new BlackBerry Classic smartphone and the company's earnings conference call, Goldman Sachs wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: The launch of the Classic on Wednesday, along with BlackBerry's earnings conference call on Friday, could generate a short squeeze in BlackBerry's stock, Goldman analyst Simona Jankowski wrote. BlackBerry's Q3 earnings per share should be "largely in-line" with the consensus outlook, as higher hardware revenues should be more than offset by a decline in legacy service revenues, the analyst stated. However, the company's EPS for its quarter ended in February should beat expectations, driven by the launch of the Classic, Jankowski forecast. Still, she kept a Neutral rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to Jankowski, the short interest in BlackBerry shares has risen to 21%. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, BlackBerry fell 1.7% to $9.67. The stock is off its low for the day of $9.40. BlackBerry shares have dropped about 12% over the last three months.
