Someone asked me this question today. RIM has been taking a beating for a while now. Letting go of employees, and not living up to the expectations of it's users and investors. Traditionally, you buy low, when a stock takes a beating, it's time to buy... provided of course that you see a future for the company. In my opinion, RIM will eventually get bought out by another communications company because, let's face it, it has an established corporate clientèle. How this will pan out is any body's guess. You could win big or lose big. As far as I'm concerned, RIM is not in my portfolio, and I would not recommend it - my crystal ball says No!
