U.S. Financial Hub: Wall Street

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) is one of the stocks that started the day in green, and will probably close up, currently appreciating by 12% to $9.28 on the back of the financial results report. The company posted a revenue of $966 million for the first quarter of its fiscal 2015, which is down by 1% on the quarter, and significantly lower than $3.07 billion reported for the same period of last year. However, BlackBerry has reduced impressively its net loss to $0.04 per share, from $0.80 per share in the previous quarter, and $0.16 per share in the first quarter of the last fiscal year.

“The Company anticipates maintaining its strong cash position, while increasingly looking for opportunities to prudently invest in growth. The Company is targeting break-even cash flow results by the end of fiscal 2015,” BlackBerry said in a statement.

Another Tech Stock that rallied today is Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT), which jumped 5% at the opening of the trading, and is currently 3.40% up.

The GAAP net income of Red Hat amounted to $0.20 per diluted share, versus $0.21 per share in the same period of last year.
