Think about it Research in Motion (Nasdaq:RIMM) should become a venture capital outfit. Here’s how and why:

  1. No outstanding debt and about $2 billion in cash and equivalents
  2. Client base continues to grow and create positive cash flow
  3. Patents have huge valuation. Sell and create huge war chest.
  4. In house R&D does not work so why not buy new ideas?
  5. Maybe go private and become mysterious without idiotic press scrutiny.
