(Bloomberg) -- CES has long been a showcase for automotive gadgetry and a chance for tech companies to pitch their gear to carmakers. This year, the consumer electronics show is embracing an increasingly valuable byproduct of all this activity: data.Modern cars roll out of factories packed with cellular connections, powerful processors and growing suite of sensors, including cameras, radar and microphones. That’s turning them into the next information goldmine, rivaling the data-creating capabilities of smartphones.Amazon.com Inc., Intel Corp., Qualcomm Inc. and BlackBerry Ltd. are at the Las Vegas conference this week to pitch data-crunching services and partnerships to an auto industry searching for new revenue streams and business models.“CES will highlight the next big industry transformation that revolves around how this data can be monetized,” said Brian Rhodes, an automotive technology analyst at IHS Markit. “This market is no longer strictly focused on selling hard parts.”Automakers are trying to control the data generated by their vehicles and avoid being marginalized by technology giants. It’s a challenge because car companies lack deep software talent and are already battling the incursion of smartphones and related technology. Apple Inc.’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto software, installed on vehicle dashboard screens, funnel data to and from smartphones and largely bypass carmakers’ systems.The industry “passed a while ago a very important line in the sand,” said Henrik Fisker, chief executive officer of electric vehicle manufacturer Fisker Inc. “People suddenly felt that their smartphone was more important to their freedom than their car.”After years of setbacks and delays, Fisker will show off its Ocean electric SUV at CES for the first time. The company wants to generate the majority of its profit from software and services over the long term. Fisker has an app for ordering, lease payments and upgrades that it hopes will generate recurring revenue over the life of each vehicle.Intel will announce a new automotive tie-up for its Mobileye unit during CES, adding to existing relationships with Nissan Motor Co., BMW AG and Volkswagen AG. The carmakers use Mobileye’s driver-assistance technology and provide the Intel unit with some of the data that those cameras, chips and sensors collect as the vehicles drive around. Mobileye aggregates this anonymous information to create detailed maps that the carmakers use to enhance their vehicle navigation systems.At CES, Intel showed off a map of Las Vegas created in 24 hours with information from BMW cars that drove around the city over an undisclosed longer period. Intel says such fresh information is more valuable than traditional navigation systems, which use special survey vehicles that collect and send in images and data for updates that can take months. The newer approach has more chance of spotting and avoiding a broken traffic signal or road work. Intel thinks the data will be really useful for other things, too. A utility company could check on infrastructure without sending workers to every site, for example.Intel predicts the market for such data will be worth as much as $3.5 billion a year by 2030. McKinsey & Co. sees a much larger opportunity. A few years ago, the consulting firm said up to $750 billion of value would created from car-related data by 2030. That includes revenue from services like connected maps and targeted advertising, along with the sale and analysis of anonymous information via third parties to reduce costs.“The value pool includes avoided costs and incremental revenue” McKinsey partner Michele Bertoncello said. “If you monitor a car and you avoid a breakdown or you avoid warranty fraud, you don’t generate incremental revenue, but you avoid a cost.”On Monday at CES, cloud-computing giant Amazon Web Services teamed up with BlackBerry, owner of QNX, an operating system that’s widely used in cars. The two companies unveiled a new service that helps automakers update security and software features, monitor vehicle health, access data from car sensors, built new applications and apply artificial intelligence models to the information.Chipmaker Qualcomm announced its first chips and software for fully autonomous vehicles at the CES show. Its radio chips already support cellular links for most of the world’s connected cars. The new offering will be available in coming years and will reduce the cost and power needed to develop and run driverless cars, Qualcomm said. The company also rolled out a “Car-to-Cloud Platform,” a package of hardware and software that lets automakers securely update the software in their vehicles. The system offers a way to charge vehicle owners for updates and other services.Vehicle-generated data is crucial to Ford Motor Co.’s future, Chief Technical Officer Ken Washington said. The company’s commercial business is working with Digit, a robot designed by Agility Robotics that travels with delivery vehicles, unfolds itself, then carries packages from the curbside to the door. Digit will use data from Ford vehicle sensors to find its way.Advanced data capture and analysis is crucial for improving designs and bringing them to market more quickly, and for creating new businesses as carmakers try to become broader transportation companies, according to Washington.“We’re taking this very seriously,” he said. “I watched the internet happen and I watched what happened to businesses that embraced it and those that ignored it.”(Corrects in the ninth paragraph to say that Intel built the map with data collected over a longer period.)To contact the reporters on this story: Ian King in San Francisco at email@example.com;Ed Ludlow in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Alistair Barr at email@example.com, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

For the last three years, BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) has had huge achievements, even as its previously thriving cell phone business faded into oblivion. But during most of that time, Wall Street has not given BlackBerry stock the respect it deserved.Source: Shutterstock Last week, however, BlackBerry reported third-quarter results that showed that it has become meaningfully profitable. The company also proved that its core businesses are definitely growing rapidly and that it has many strong upcoming catalysts, along with increased credibility.In the wake of those strong results, the Street may be finally ready to start recognizing BlackBerry for what it is: a rising cybersecurity and Internet of Things powerhouse with tremendous upcoming growth.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips BlackBerry Was UnderappreciatedStarting in 2016, the company's QNX operating system was adopted by multiple, big-time players in the auto industry, from Ford (NYSE:F) to auto-equipment heavyweights Delphi (NYSE:DLPH) and Denso. Its security products were used by many big multinational banks and huge government agencies, including the Pentagon, the Treasury, the Department of Energy, and the Department of Homeland Security. And its revenue started climbing again. * 7 Stocks to Buy to Get 2020 Started the Right Way Yet most analysts and most investors shunned BlackBerry stock, preferring to focus on the trees of the minutiae of its quarterly financial results rather than the forest of the company's tremendous achievements and wonderful outlook. Short-sellers also loved to prey on BB stock.First, investors gave BB stock the cold shoulder because its revenue was shrinking. Then, in most of 2018 and most of 2019, they didn't like BB stock because its enterprise software and services missed expectations and showed a bit of weakness.The Street was also spooked because the company spent a great deal of its cash on buying artificial intelligence-oriented cybersecurity company Cylance, whose growth subsequently slowed meaningfully. Finally, some analysts were worried that the company's licensing revenue would dry up. The BlackBerry Stock Opinion RevolutionBlackBerry's Q3 results may have eased much of the Street's fears. Its software and services revenue jumped an impressive 26% year-over-year, easing worries about slow top-line growth. Its enterprise software and services revenue dropped slightly YoY, but appeared to have risen versus the previous quarter, according to research firm Raymond James.Cylance's revenue came in at a solid $40 million, even though it increased only 13% YoY. Licensing revenue rose 13% YoY, More than 90% of BlackBerry's software and services revenue was recurring. That means that the company has customers under contract to deliver software and services revenue in upcoming quarters that are equal to more than 90% of the revenue it generated last quarter. BB's cash and equivalents rose $32 million quarter-over-quarter.But, perhaps more important were the company's forward-looking comments, BlackBerry raised its full-year earnings per share guidance to 8 cents from 6 cents. Although 8 cents may not sound like much, it's actually close to $55 million, which is pretty meaningful. Of course, nothing impresses Wall Street as much as profits.Additionally, CEO John Chen reiterated that he expects Cylance to be profitable starting in FY21, which begins in March. He also stated that Cylance had won a number of deals with large companies, while there was strong demand for a new managed services offering released by the unit. Chen added that cross-selling and synergies between Cylance and other parts of BlackBerry would increase going forward.After BlackBerry released its Q2 results in September, Chen said that changes in the company's sales team had hindered its ability to close enterprise software and security deals. But he sounded much more upbeat on Friday. After the Q3 results were released, the CEO said the company's new products and increased focus by the sales team had enabled it "to drive more business."Furthermore, for the first time, BlackBerry's QNX operating system, which has become quite lucrative for the company, appears to be poised to generate meaningful revenue beyond the auto industry. Of QNX's 31 design wins in Q3, 11 were in auto and 20 were in other sectors, Chen noted.Moreover, the CEO said that QNX 's revenue from the other sectors will be significantly higher and take a much shorter time to materialize after orders are received than its revenue from auto companies. The fact that QNX is beginning to exploit non-auto opportunities in a meaningful way probably made many investors more upbeat on BlackBerry stock.Also likely increasing optimism towards BB stock, the company's asset-tracking business, Radar, gained meaningful traction in Q3. It added 15 new customers last quarter, and it received repeat orders from multiple customers, including Lowe's (NYSE:LOW) and Bimbo's Bakeries.Since BlackBerry reported its Q2 results in September, BB stock mostly traded in a range of $5.oo-$5.50. The shares jumped as high as $6.55 on Friday and are trading around $6.45 at the moment.Moreover, BlackBerry announced that it had launched a partnership with CACI International (NYSE:CACI), one of the largest IT systems integrators based in the DC area which does a huge amount of business with the federal government.Under the deal, BB and CACI will "provide the first secure and certified mobile communication applications, utilizing BlackBerry's SecuSUITE secure voice and text," Chen announced. The partnership certainly increases BlackBerry's credibility as a top cybersecurity company.Many times in the past, after BB reported strong results, BlackBerry stock would give back most of its gains on the day after its results were reported. The fact that BB stock kept the lion's share of its gains on Monday is encouraging.Although there appeared to be no major upgrades of BlackBerry stock in the wake of the results, Bank of America, which had been one of the biggest bears on the name, did upgrade the shares to "neutral" in November and kept that rating on the shares in the wake of Friday's results. Additionally, TD securities kept its $10 price target and a "buy" rating on the shares. Those are minor victories, but they are victories nonetheless. The Bottom Line on BlackBerry StockBlackBerry reported strong results that appear to have calmed Wall Street's concerns on many fronts, including its revenue growth, future profitability, and the Cylance deal. The expansion of QNX and the increased traction of Radar also appear to have excited some investors. Although analysts seem tepid, there are signs that they're coming around.BlackBerry stock may have finally turned a corner.As of this writing, Larry Ramer owned shares of BlackBerry stock.

After a rough fiscal second quarter, (BB)stock got a boost from stronger-than-expected third quarter revenue and adjusted earnings, with its licensing and security business delivering strong sales.

Shares of BlackBerry Ltd. rose 7.1% in premarket trading after the Canada-based security software company reported fiscal third-quarter results, but the company once again led its earnings report with nonstandard numbers, a practice that appears to shun Securities and Exchange Commission rules. The company started its earnings report by saying non-GAAP revenue, or revenue that doesn't follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, rose 23% from a year ago to $280 million, then said GAAP revenue grew 18% to $267 million. The FactSet consensus was for revenue of $271.9 million. SEC rules require that GAAP numbers are presented with equal or greater prominence than non-GAAP numbers. The company then reported non-GAAP earnings of $20 million, or 3 cents a share, while the GAAP loss of $29 million, or 7 cents a share, narrowed from a loss of $44 million, or 10 cents a share. The stock has tumbled 18.3% year to date through Thursday, while the S&P 500 has climbed 27.9%.

BlackBerry reported revenue of $40 million from Cylance.
