BlackBerry (NYSE: BB) releases its fiscal year 2022 second-quarter results this week. The company’s stock price found strong support at $10 and is up over 50% this year.
BlackBerry is a Canadian company providing security software and services worldwide. The stock price was in focus this year, as it became one of the meme stocks in the first half of the year, with investors trying to squeeze short-sellers.
Today, BlackBerry stock price finds support at $10, after trading as high as $25 in February. However, even at current levels, BlackBerry stock price is up by 51.28% year-to-date and 112.05% in the last 12 months.
The company releases its Q2 FY2022 earnings today, and the market expects EPS of -$0.07. BlackBerry also lost money in the previous quarter. Investors expect the company to show a profit only for the Q4 FY2022.
In other words, BlackBerry is losing money, and most of the price action seen in the stock price is speculative or driven by long-term investors believing in the management’s ability to turn the company around.
