    Great companies don't always make great stocks. Example: On the latest Barron's list of companies generating the most revenue growth and cash returns, only one company in last year's top 10 remained in the top 10 this year: Research In Motion (RIMM), whose stock price has plunged 30% in the past year.

    With a forward P/E slipping to a sobering 7 and below - but with still-growing sales - might Research In Motion (RIMM +1.3%) be a contrarian play? One possible omen: the company's shift toward lower-cost handsets, which could trim profit growth even if revenues keep swelling.

    Microsoft's (MSFT -0.5%) Steve Ballmer makes a surprise showing at BlackBerry World to report that Bing will be the default search engine for the Research In Motion (RIMM +0.5%) devices. Search and maps apps will be integrated as well.

    Research In Motion's (RIMM -1%) announcement of two upgraded BlackBerry Bold smartphones fails to stem last week's slide in its shares. CEO Jim Balsillie reiterates RIMM’s outlook for annual EPS of $7.50/share, prompting skepticism after the company lowered its fiscal Q1 forecast last week.

    Research In Motion (RIMM) is today's big market-cap loser, down 13.4% after slashing guidance - but is it enough of a decline, considering co-CEO Jim Balsillie's still-surprising optimism in facing off against AAPL and GOOG?

    RIM loses a friend: After last night's warning, Jefferies slashes its price target on Research In Motion (RIMM) to $35 from $80, predicting "continued execution issues, product delays, and lackluster product launches." Firm thinks carriers will pull support for 0S 7.0 due to RIM's slowfootedness. RIMM -12.6% premarket.

    Research In Motion (RIMM) lowers Q1 guidance to $1.37-1.45 vs. $1.48 consensus, citing weak BlackBerry shipments "that are now expected to be at the lower end of the range of 13.5-14.5 million" it predicted in March, and "a shift in the expected mix of devices shipped towards handsets with lower average selling prices." Shares halted.

    Google's Android (GOOG +1.6%) operating system powered half of all smartphones bought in the U.S. in the past six months, doubling iPhone's (AAPL -0.8%) 25% share, according to a new Nielsen survey. Android's gains matter because tech platform markets tend to standardize around a single dominant platform, Henry Blodget says; the more dominant it becomes, the harder it is to dislodge.

    Perhaps surprising after some lukewarm-at-best reviews, Research In Motion's (RIMM -1.7%) BlackBerry PlayBook tablet likely sold 50,000 units on day one - reportedly a better debut than the Galaxy Tab from Samsung or the Xoom from Motorola (MMI +3.3%).

    Morgan Keegan expects light U.S. first-day PlayBook (RIMM +2.3%) sales, but that the device's vast potential is more important: It's "an Amazon app (for e-books, movies, TV, etc.) and a native PIM app away from being a serious competitor to iPad2, both of which we suspect are coming over the next few months."

    Research In Motion's (RIMM) PlayBook goes on sale in the U.S. and Canada after being panned by critics before the launch. But retailers Staples (SPLS) and Best Buy (BBY) say solid pre-orders suggest pent-up demand for a capable alternative to Apple's (AAPL) iPad.

    Research In Motion (RIMM +1%) may try to outbid Google (GOOG -2.1%) for the wireless technology patents held by Nortel, Bloomberg reports. Google reportedly has offered $900M for the 6,000 patents, which would let it control and license technology used in BlackBerrys, iPhones and mobile devices that run on Android.
