Despite the drubbing Research In Motion (NASDAQ: BBRY ) has gotten recently as smartphones have robbed the company of nearly every last shred of market share, leaving the once-glorious BlackBerry phone a relic in the minds of most consumers, there is one demographic where the phone still holds a strong share: European teenagers. Its 64% market share of Spanish consumers aged 11-17 contribute strongly to its 22% market share as a whole in Spain (which is higher than even Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) can claim in that country), and its 46% in the U.K. and 14% in France for the same demographic are still both dramatically higher than for any demographic in the U.S. Here, Motley Fool research analyst Lyons George tells us how bargain-bin investors can potentially still stand to make gains off these numbers.
There is absolutely no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and a major contributor to Research In Motion's painful decline. Longtime Apple shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.
