** Third-quarter revenue falls to $793 mln from $1.19 bln, falling short of analysts' average expectation of $931.5 mln
** "Revenue missed consensus by a sizable amount, which is especially troubling because it included one month of new BlackBerry Passport sales," says Morningstar
** "Revenue number this quarter is not satisfying", CEO John Chen says
** Reports small adjusted profit and returns to positive cash flow
** Up to Thursday's close, U.S.-listed stock had risen 35 pct this year; Canadian shares up nearly 48 pct
