AT&T (T) will sell the BlackBerry Z10 (BBRY +5.2%) for $200 with a 2-year contract, starting on March 22. AT&T will also sell BES 10 to enterprise accounts. The announcement seems to be giving a lift to heavily-shorted BlackBerry - Bloomberg reported of a March 22 Z10 launch date last week. (PR)

    t-minus a month or less to the beginning of an epic squeeze

    Probably less. World sales come out in the end of the month. But I caution to not risk everything on (BBRY).

    Actually... I think this news is moving the stock more than AT&T announcing launch.

    Nice pop so far this morning. Just a few moments ago the stock had gained $1.41. Not sure if it'll hold for the rest of the session as similar gains in the past have seemed to fizzle out. It's all good since I'm LONG.

     

    -Cheers!

    For a stock that had been declared dead, any pulse is a great sign. I am holding on because I don't want to miss the $10 pop.

    If this is the beginning of the short squeeze we were looking for? and good chance it is with T mobile launching today for business, and AT&T start to take pre-orders tomorrow, now combine that with Lenovo / or others renewed interest, and potential licensing deals, this could be the beginning of the end for those shorts as they have no possible news left to continue with their short position.
    I suspect, and do your due diligence first before acting, the upward move will be substantial and will last for few days or weeks. So hold on for a substantial profit coming our way.

     

    Long Live BBRY.

    what took them so long to make a no-brainier decision?

    Well, I think they may have taken a huge Iphone position. Maybe a little hard to let it go. But they may seen the wind of change, that what was old is new again. It is hard to read what is happening at Apple these days and (T) don't what to be left out went the change comes.

    Another bullish sign you can see today, is the fact that the stock is up more than 10% on a volume that exceeds the last 2 days volumes combined and it is not 1/2 the way of the trading session yet.
    Long Live BBRY

    Technically, only 1/4 of (BBRY)'s float is short. That is much less than when (TZOO) has 80% short.
