When BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) released its most recent earnings result, the death rattle was heard around the market, and the stock got immediately clobbered as a result. Rather than the $0.06 profit that was expected, the company reported a loss. Additional bad news included weak sales of BB10 devices, and the net loss of a significant number of subscribers. While the company owns some nice pieces of technology, its weak operating results are bad news for investors.
