Reasons for Facebook to Buy RIM: 01) Over 77 Million customer worldwide. 02) Blackberry brand. 03) 4G Playbook and Blackberry. 04) Number one in enterprise secure communication. 05) Patents worth at least $10 a share. 06) Over $2B cash. 07) Zero debt. 08) Cash flow of 4B a year. 09) Book value of $19.77 10) PE of just 4.8 11) $5.5B market cap company compared to Nokia $10B and Apple $520B. 12) BB10 will unravel the Androids and iOS ecosystem. 13) A Canadian company (the most stable economy in the world). 14) RIM's FIPS 140-2 security certificate.
09) Book value of $19.77 Lie. Tangible is somewhere under $12.42 and dropping, and clearly, does not serve as any kind of a floor.
10) PE of just 4.8 This is not a limbo contest; if so, Nortel beat them
11) $5.5B market cap company compared to Nokia $10B and Apple $520B. Yes, NOK should be many times more than RIMM, since they are #3 (RIMM is #4) and have MSFT holding them up. Apple, had $12B net income and climbing fast, RIM LOST money and has been falling nonstop for a long many quarter.
12) BB10 will unravel the Androids and iOS ecosystem. No, it won't. It is already here, and tanked on the tablet. It was seen on the handsets, and even that tanked it more.
