    Wrote about $BBRY (http://seekingalpha.com/a/hd51) to profit both ways but I'm bearish now. Too much hype, expectations are too inflated now.

    • realornot: This is not a hype. In fact expectations are below average when compare to the Apple religion. Its a hype when it tops $200 by summer!1/21

    • Buffet_or_Broke: I agree, RIM at $18 feels like AAPL at $700. The market is getting way too positive. I have been keeping tight stops.

    • Closet Iguana: I agree with Realornot. When this stock reaches $30.00 you'll be kicking yourself you didn't ride the wave.

    • realornot: $BBRY @ 20 = $AAPL @ 200 U saw the growth of Apple and now, back to RIM! It is only logical, Spock. http://bit.ly/WixuoO

    • Buffet_or_Broke: RIM has no ecosystem, nothing to make it sticky, and nothing to make it difficult to move on. I have a BB, and a playbook...

    • Buffet_or_Broke: ...My work pays for the BB, and the playbook came free with the BB.

    • Buffet_or_Broke: Granted this was before BB10, but I don't think you'll see AAPL giving away iPads with iPhones anytime soon.

    • Nuno Donato: you obviously are not aware of the new BlackBerry World coming up soon :)

    • Closet Iguana: The reason why your work choose BB over the others is one of the reasons why this stock is back.

    • Vash Patel: $Apple isn't a rule---it's an exception. I'm not a fan of their products but what Steve Jobs did was legendary.

    • Vash Patel: Cont. - What Jobs with $AAPL did isn't something I expect for any other company to do and I sure as hell wouldn't bet on it.
      1/22/13
    • Closet Iguana: Jobs was a visionary. We knew when he was alive and notice it in his absence

    • Closet Iguana: For those not buying RIMM is it out of principle or is it you think it simply won`t go any higher?
      1/22/13
    • Vash Patel: It could go higher but I'm contrarian naturally. If the market sets high expectations BB10, there's a real chance they won't be impressed.

    • Closet Iguana: That's fair.
      1/22/13
    • Buffet_or_Broke: That's essentially my point exactly. I feel that the sentiment has done a 180 way too quickly for RIM, feels like a typical pump and dump.
      1/22/13
    • Buffet_or_Broke: ...and my work chose RIM because nobody else made phones with email when the decision was made.
      1/22/13
    • Closet Iguana: ^ahhh I didn't take into context when the decision was made. I was thinking and couldn't agree with the byob.
