Agreeably, it is unfair (and risky) to compare two stocks with a disparity as huge as $564 Billion between their market caps, but I’m taking my chances today. A photo (shown below) that appeared on my Facebook newsfeed a few days ago had me thinking.
Will the real RIM management please stand up? And leave!
Let's give RIM a Microsoft's Midas touch. Microsoft gets diversification benefits, billions of dollars worth of patents, synergistic value appreciation, cost reductions through economies of scale and 78 million new subscribers from its acquisition of RIMM. With $16 billion cash at its disposal and an estimated acquisition price tag of only $8.4 billion, Microsoft could release its very own Miscrosoft BB10 next year. Do you agree?
