The Research In Motion Forensic Valuation and Analysis is Released to the Public

Now that Research in Motion has reached our valuation target and offered the opportunity for material gain for our subscribers, I have decided to released the full 45 page professional Forensic Valuation report to the public. It is quite extensive, and has been quite accurate to date...

RIMM Chart

And from the valuation section of our Forensic Report (those who have downloaded it can refer to page 30)...

RIMM Valuation

As you can see, we did a phenomenal job at anticipating the share price fall and the practical floor. Those of you who used options and/or leverage with proper risk management should have benefited handsomely. Of course, this particular industry segment moves much more rapidly than most, which is why we have taken the opportunity to add flexibility in our valuations and analysis (page 32)...

Scenario Analysis

As is usual, I welcome any and all to compare BoomBustBlog research to anything available from the sell side. I am confident many will wish to subscribe after an apples to apples comparison. This report release to the public is done in anticipation of the much more comprehensive, 65 page Google Forensic Valuation (hopefully by later on today or tomorrow morning) and the upcoming Apple Forensic Valuation. Please keep in mind that the Research in Motion story is not over, by a long shot. It looks as if they may have pulled a much needed rabbit out of their hat with their new tablet, but at this point it is still vaporware from our perspective since I have yet to get my hands on one. If it is what it is chocked up to be, it will then be up to management to execute. Their track record over their last 3 attempts at larger screen form factors have been wanting, at best, but maybe the fourth time around is a charm.

Professional subscribers should take advantage of the interactive valuation tools that I have made available to adjust the assumptions in the valuation model to keep abreast of the RIM situation (see RIMM Multivariate Valuation Model). We have not updated the assumptions since before the earnings announcement, so there is some fine tuning to be done regarding the valuation report, but the gist of the story remains the same, and the report's premise remains quite valid. I recommend all paying subscribers use the market share tools to assist in fine tuning their assumptions moving forward. This is a rapidly changing landscape, and what was once the underdog may become the champion - seemingly overnight. I, personally, am still quite skeptical of RIM management's ability to execute in this environment, but I am keeping my eyes open.
