BlackBerry halted with news pending

  • For the second trading day in a row, BlackBerry (BBRY) has been halted. It's unlikely this halt will have to do with an earnings warning.

    lol more then likely its to announce potential suitors (people signing up to look at books and such)... or worse more layoffs/reductions in earnings.

    Probably a 'management-led' bid offer in the low teens.

    It will be interesting to see which way it goes after the halt. I made the mistake of buying Sep 20 $10 Puts about 20 min before the end of the trading day Friday at $1.50. I am not sure the final price the options closed at, but I a pretty sure I lost 20% or so. I should have bought the weekly option puts for this week.... I think, guess we will see in a few minutes.

    BlackBerry said it would be acquired by Fairfax Financial, a Canadian insurance company for $9 a share, in a deal totaling $4.7 billion dollars

    They could have made a good deal of money raffling off the rights to pack his parachute.

    The Fairfax offer of $9/share puts BBRY into play. Will another buyer come in? We shall see......

    To me this stinks, and we idiots who liked Blackberry, put faith in it and its ideas, its management who also stink, in Canada which will go along with this, tried to stand against US hatchet job, which suited those who we thought we were supporting, I will never buy a Blackberry again

    I kind of figured they would do everything possible to get a deal done before the 9/27 call. Avoid that bloodbath at all costs. We'll see.

     

    Must have been a pretty exhausting weekend up in Waterloo.
