1 Tech Giant's Hidden Value

The following video is from this week's Motley Fool Money radio show, with Chris Hill, Ron Gross, James Early, and Charly Travers. IBM is reportedly interested in Research In Motion's enterprise-services unit. Would the acquisition be a smart investment or a waste of money? In this segment, the guys analyze the value of RIMM's business and discuss whether other tech companies will (or should) join in the bidding.

    Samsung already responded to that rumor saying they have not considered RIMM - in other words, they're not interested and there's absolutely no truth to the rumor.

    Even the IBM rumor comes from an "undisclosed source".

    This week, RIMM screwed up yet again with it's latest Playbook "LTE" which is getting poor reviews.

    Actually, Watsa bought 9.9% of the company - see his latest 13D filing. It is now one of his top holdings.

    All we get in this video is a lot of childish, useless, uninformed remarks.
