Overall, BlackBerry Ltd. is a growth tech stock, and the price was soaring more than 38% last week. It’s a stock that asks for patience from the investors, and I think shares may be finally rich to a good price by this year. The recent partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) on generating data for automakers using a car’s sensors and patent sales to Huawei might help BlackBerry improve its stock price. As many people are working remotely now because of the pandemic, and people are becoming more interested in self-driving cars, the cybersecurity industry will grow more. BlackBerry is definitely one of the leading companies in this sector. Therefore, I think it’s a promising stock for long time investment.
