BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) breaches 100-day moving average support line.

Shares of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) were down by more than 3% yesterday after Goldman Sachs initiated their coverage on BlackBerry with a 'sell' rating with a price target of $8.5 per share. Goldman's price target is 6.5% below yesterday's close. The firm was skeptical of BlackBerry's auto business, noting that "with the auto business trading at an implied 13-17X revenue, and unlikely to ramp meaningfully until 2019, we think fundamentals will be the primary driver of the stock over the next 12 months." BlackBerry is heavily relying on its auto business to successfully execute its turnaround. The company has signed deals with the likes of Ford to supply infotainment solutions.

With yesterday's fall, BlackBerry stock is now firmly below the 100-day moving average line. After rallying by more than 65% since March, shares of Canadian software maker are beginning to trend lower. BlackBerry stock is down almost 20% since June first. The stock had breached its key support levels from 20-day and 50-day moving averages. Over the past one week, the stock had been testing the 100-day moving average support line. The stock managed to close below the 100-day moving average line on Friday.
