BlackBerry's Managerial Exodus

On today's edition of the Motley Fool's MarketFoolery podcast, host Mark Reeth and Fool analysts Jason Moser and Matt Argersinger take a deep Foolish dive into the top investing stories of the day.

In this segment, the guys discuss whether these departing executives were the ones who had a hand in BlackBerry's downfall, and whether this is part of the new CEO's turnaround plan, or just a case of top-level executives heading for the hills.
