Hedge Funds Make Big on Research in Motion $RIMM

Research in Motion (RIMM) rose over 5% in trading on Tuesday after introducing two new BlackBerry phones. Of course, Leon Cooperman’s bullish bet of 1.425 million shares may have helped bolster RIMM share prices as well (see the story here). The stock is currently trading at $19.22 a share, up from $18.29 at close Monday. RIMM has a one year target estimate of $28.86.

Cooperman’s new position in RIMM netted his Omega Advisors fund roughly $1.33 million today.
