  • The Fall Of Nokia Continues [View article]
    What's this about a dividend yield? The stock no longer issues a dividend. It is a turnaround stock. You are using a historical chart. Only look at that if you are a short or if you are not able to wait it out on a turnaround.

    If you use the space of the last year, this stock is more promising. If everyone only looked 10 or 20 years back, then nobody would ever advance or come back to the stock market.

  • BlackBerry Tanks: Now What? [View article]
    Blackberry didn't have many lineups in Canada or the UK. But it sold well -- better than the company expected.

    People are just getting spooked by WSJ and also the analyst with the $8 price target again.

    This things goes this way and that. i expect it to be back up as people are expecting a good earnings report next week!

    Agree! use of the wrong word here! The company has got cash in the bank. Don't see a mortgage problem. Can't believe SA let this one go.

  • BlackBerry: Z Is For Zero [View article]
    Yeah, Blackberry's crowd orders and gets it delivered. That's how they came to the bank employees. I used to work in a bank/ brokerage.

    I would not be surprised if UPS and FedEx are kept busy shipping little boxes.

    Wrong place to check (AT&T stores) guys! Maybe somebody should ask the UPS/ FedEx crew about the little boxes.... with mailing labels from Costco or AT&T!

  • BlackBerry: Z Is For Zero [View article]
    Interesting note about Costco. I decided to check their site... availability on the 25th for the black one (AT&T) and April 1st (Verizon) for the white.

    Since Amazon does more business the brick and mortar, isn't it reasonable as oneinfiniteloop says, many have ordered online?

    Then we'll not really know till earnings report how things really are going!

    WSJ is just causing fear and panic.

  • Reading Between The Lines Regarding BlackBerry [View article]
    LOL! This is why I make it a habit to read an article's title, look for the writer's declaration that they are long or short at the top and bottom of the article, then read the comments.

    By reading the comments first, I can quickly determine if I should read the entire article, skim it, or just skip it.

  • Uni-Pixel: Is The SEC Investigating? [View article]
    I am REALLY interested in what this writer is hiding by blacking out huge chunks of his letters which he's choosing to share. Minus the header of the company he represents and its address, some of the lines in the bodies of the letters are blackened out leaving a big question: WHAT are you hiding?!

  • Z10 returns are in-line with those of other high-end smartphones, BlackBerry (BBRY -7.8%) insists, addressing a report that returns were now exceeding sales at some top retailers. Meanwhile, Pac Crest's James Faucette, who has been bearish on BlackBerry for some time, estimates today the weekly sell-through rates for the Z10 at U.S. carriers are only around 60K units. He forecasts just 2.9M BB10 shipments for the May quarter, with half that total consisting of channel fill. [View news story]
    Shorts are a devious bunch!

    As for all those companies not getting to work on apps: they're just playing it safe until BBRY's release in the US, I think. Once that happens, they'll get to work! For now, they procrastinate.

  • Nokia And BlackBerry Are The Comeback Kings: Really? [View article]
    Interesting attempt to refute my take on the turnarounds -- however, I'll continue to buy on the dips and recommend others do so at least for the near term. Since some investors are going quarter to quarter, the near term (now till end of year), looks great for these 2 companies.

    You did point out that BBRY and NOK are not important to the US. But you failed to analyze how they are trending in the 3rd world. They are actually the #1 in various emerging countries. Admittedly, neither are so in China. But given a large population there, it's about a matter of taking market share away from Samsung and Apple. Not about getting to first place in one move. Recent earnings reports on Samsung and Apple smartphone sales show both are in decline. Profits are decreasing. Investors need to have an eye for what's "next" and not as you say, sit back and keep waiting. By the time there's strong confirmation, you're buying at the peak. Your method seems to suggest buying at $700 and waiting for $1111. aka. Apple stock.

    Your chart analysis fails at one point: you failed to see how the 2 companies are outperforming the index benchmarks.

    If you had added a comparison to Apple, the take to buy BBRY and NOK would be apparent. While Apple is the one that cannot even perform better than indexes, the Comebacks can.

    Further details on my take are found here: "Nokia As Comeback King: Using Grassroots Approach to Win"

    Yes, how can they be allowed to just make such a statement without providing any supporting facts? How many places did they survey? Just that shop next to the coffee shop they frequent? lol

    Blackberry should sue them for libel. That should put an end to it!

  • Marchers in more than 400 cities across 52 countries took part in protests against Monsanto (MON) today, calling attention to what they say are dangers posed by genetically modified foods. Monsanto is "poisoning our children, poisoning our planet," claims one of the organizers. The company says its seeds help farmers produce more from their land while conserving resources such as water and energy. [View news story]
    I would gladly have joined the protest. Open your eyes, people! Monsanto is evil. GMO is one thing but to make seeds that make a piece of land impossible to use for ANY other crop caused many farmers in India to commit suicide. We in North America still rely on farmers in 3rd world nations for our foods. The least we can do is to be considerate that they need to make a livelihood too. Monsanto is a monopoly. Do some research before you buy into the Monsanto hype. Just because the deaths are not at your backdoor doesn't mean you should not care. Monsanto's seeds blow from one farmer's land onto another's -- causing widespread immunity to other seeds. If you are a neighbor not using their seeds, your land can be destroyed just for being adjacent to a property that uses it. Over the years, as MON spreads across continents, we may have a serious toxic substance in our hands. Sure, it kills unwanted bugs. But some of those insects are actually a necessity for our ecosystems.

    Closer to home (North America), if you will recall, farmers lost out in the war against Monsanto in the courts. Traditional farming methods are at risk. A different way of mass producing clothing and furniture is one thing -- a different way of farming?! Are you really ready to be completely under the control of one company? Their seed spreads everywhere, and farmers unwilling to use their seeds have no choice or are put out of business. What does this say about freedom of choice? There is none.

    Your land, their seed -- but your land is useless once their seed lands on it. Wow. Great. A great big piece of wasteland -- unless you buy seeds -- you can't even use last year's seeds because they self-destruct. You are completely a SLAVE to Monsanto if you are a farmer. In the long run, the farmer is a slave but so is the city person like me and you who is far removed from farming. Everything we touch is contaminated. Everything will be priced as Monsanto wishes to price it. How about a $20/lb watermelon? Far fetched? Well, not if they control things and have the ability to name their price. Some day.... you get the idea. And as for organic foods, those prices will just get even higher. All food prices will go up. Do not delude yourself into thinking that Monsanto allows for food prices to be cheap. That's just now. They're fooling you.

    We've got problems with obesity and cancer right now. We don't need more headaches. Let's short Monsanto. It does not deserve to have a market cap of $55 billion. It is a silent killer.
