BlackBerry Rebounds From Post-Earnings Dip: What's Next?


BlackBerry Ltd BB fell on Friday following the company's earnings print. The stock staged a rebound Monday and made up its losses.

For the first quarter of 2022, BlackBerry reported revenue of $174 million, beating the consensus estimate of $171.25 million, and a net loss of 5 cents per share, which was in line with analyst estimates. A number of analysts downgraded BlackBerry, which led to the stock closing down 4% on Friday.

On Monday, the dip was bought and the stock shot up over 5%. Although the Canada-based company is liked in a number of Reddit communities, institutions came in and purchased $451,634 worth of call contracts during the trading day. A number of the option traders paid above the asking price for their calls.

Monday’s reversal slammed BlackBerry’s stock into some heavy resistance levels, but there are bullish signs on the chart.
