RIM and TSX take a leap – buy your spouse something nice

Comments

Toronto Stock Exchange

The best thing we can do in times of economic hardship is spend. Get the economy moving people! The TSX and RIM had a great day today and so should you. Buy your spouse something nice. Take that special someone out for a nice dinner. Or, better yet, buy yourself that BlackBerry Storm you’ve been craving for the past couple months. Here are the facts:

Research In Motion Ltd. (TSX:RIM), up $9.10 or 14 per cent to $73.10
TSX up 1,058.7 points or 11.7 per cent to 10,123.9

The news came shortly after President Bush announced the government would spend US$250 billion to directly buy shares in the country’s leading banks. I’m curious to see how this plays out in the long term.

    RIM got upgraded to “hold” from the boys at Needham & Co. I’m just a messenger.
