HP has a good fire going, but lots of the house still intact. Unfortunately, the firefighters (the board of directors) are throwing gas on the fire to try to put it out.
RIM has a raging fire, and the fire is so bad, even the best efforts of its competent board are unlikely to succeed in putting it out.
There might be something valuable in the basement when the house has
burned to the ground, but we're not sure.



To torture your metaphor more, I think of RIM as a house seriously on fire,
probably mostly burned to the ground already.

I think of HP as a subdivision with several smaller fires: some houses may survive nicely.
On the down side, nobody has even called the fire department yet.
