RIM has weak second quarter, third quarter looking iffy

  1. Research In Motion had a worse-than-predicted second quarter, and the current period doesn't look especially solid either. Earnings fell to $475.6 million or $.83 per share during the period ending August -- much less than the $1 per share analysts foresaw. This compares to $495.5 million or $.86 per share in the year-ago period.

  2. I wish people would do a little bit of research. $.83 is due to lawsuit settlement charge otherwise it would be $1.03 - oh well apparently growth in 20%+ in no longer worth anything

    Yep, it's all in the original article sourced -- a loss is a loss my friend. None of the numbers reported here are wrong, if you can show otherwise, I'll gladly adjust the article accordingly.
