Goldman Sachs Suggests Selling Puts on Research In Motion

The analysts' $18 12-mth price target is based on a sum of the parts methodology breaks down to 50% of the services business and 35% from RIM's Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio, with the remainder from RIMM's cash balance.
The analysts suggest selling the December $15 put for $0.31.
