09:59 EDTRIMM, NOK, MSFTBad news turns could mean a silver lining for RIM shares, Barron's reports
While some read Research in Motion's, or RIM, (RIMM) CEO Thorsten Heins' comments Thursday as leaving open the door to M&A, Barron's Technology Trader columnist Tiernan Ray contends it's more likely that nothing will happen. Ray thinks RIM shares will likely "lurch" forward through the summer toward the unveiling of its new BlackBerry platform, the BB10, sometime this fall - on speculation of a comeback. There is also a substantial contingent on the Street that believes RIM's strategy is still to sell out to someone with deep pockets. RIM has $2B in the bank, no debt, and has patents that are of value. But, the conventional wisdom is that Microsoft (MSFT), the most logical bidder, has no need for RIM now that it is unleashing smartphones in partnership with Nokia (NOK). Other potential acquirer - but not necessarily likely to take the acquisition plunge are: Sharp, Lenovo, and Asustek Comupter. Reference Link
