The former smartphone maker said it earned 25 cents per share, compared with a loss of 56 cents a share a year earlier. Adjusted fourth quarter profits amounted to $6 million, down from $14 million in the previous third quarter. However, BlackBerry reported that its fourth quarter revenue declined 12% to $185 million from $210 million a year earlier. Wall Street had expected BlackBerry to post $29.3 million in adjusted losses on $186.8 million in revenue, according to Refinitiv.

Consequently, BB stock is down today, adding to losses for the year. So far in 2022, BlackBerry’s stock has fallen 30% to $6.60 a share. Where do analysts see the company’s share price heading in coming months? Here are three analyst price predictions for BlackBerry’s stock.

BB Stock Price Predictions

  • TD Securities has a “sell” rating on BB stock and a price target of $7, implying 6% upside.
  • RBC Capital Markets maintains a “hold” rating on BlackBerry’s stock and also has a $7 price target.
  • Raymond James too has a “hold” rating on BB stock and a $7.60 price target, which would be about 15% higher than where the shares currently trade.

What’s Next for BlackBerry

Shareholders of BlackBerry stock are going to take a hit today following the company’s latest quarterly print that disappointed Wall Street. Among six analysts who cover BlackBerry, the median price target on the shares is currently $7.

The once-dominant smartphone maker is struggling to shift its business toward cybersecurity and the internet of things, with some of its software now used to pilot self-driving cars. Investors should approach BB stock with caution given its ongoing declines.
