  • Spot Uranium Jumps Higher: Is Putin Putting Pressure On Global Uranium Supply? [View article]
    Anything coming out of Fukushima and spilling into the Pacific will not just affect the Pacific ocean, eventually all waters are connected and will affect everyone. The concentration of the radioactive materials will be first felt on Asia and then along the West coast of North America.

    Having said all this, Uranium is here to stay and spot price will increase because it is a very reliable source of energy and impossible to replace.

  • While cutting Mosaic to Sell, Goldman lifts price target for Potash Corp. [View news story]
    Another big mistake by Uralkali. Why give china such a discount? I thought that the new Uralkali leadership had changed their policy to price over volume rather than the other opposite, make you wonder!!! I think POT sp is going to take a hit, especially when they come out their earnings report.

  • Potash Corp: Be Greedy When Others Are Fearful, 33% Upside From Hiccough Valuation Levels [View article]
    Keep that Dividend coming, I don't mind make over 4%. I suspect many institutions are thinking the same way for their clients. How can you buy such a quality stock and still receive 4% dividend?

    Russians are masters at playing the "sky is falling game". I suspect there is a lot more to it than meet the eyes. I think Uralkali's major investors want to buy out their small counterparts, they will drive down its share price and then offer a small premium on the already very low price and take it private.

    If you do business in Russia, let it be known that you will lose most if not all of your money.

    Potash will be back and back with a vengeance, buy more if you have cash laying around. If nothing else, the +4% dividend in nothing to baulk at!

  • There Is Finally An Angle For Gains On BlackBerry With $9 Buyout Imminent [View article]
    I'm so glad I got out of this stock much earlier.... When the announcement of selling the company came a few weeks ago and that P. Watsa was stepping off from the board of directors, I knew that retail shareholders are going to get slaughtered. When it walks like a duck, talks like a'a a duck. I've seen the same story play out with Uranium One.

    One thing you have to remember is that, the management never reveals there true agenda to retail investors. Don't you think it's kind of strange timing of these bad news announcements and then lowering the boom with this 9.00 offer?

    In my opinion, the management is complicit in this $9.00 offer. For all you retail investor's sake I hope that a U.S. regulatory body, FBI, RCMP should take a hard look at the timeline and all the comments made previously by Blackberry CEO and its board of directors.

    Good luck

  • There Is Finally An Angle For Gains On BlackBerry With $9 Buyout Imminent [View article]
    Retail investors have been given the shaft by BB management. I feel the management was going to drive the price down to buy it out as cheap as possible. Unless there is a rival bidder out there, you won't get a better price than $9.00. This has been well orchestrated by BB insiders.

  • Reports: Lazaridis weighing bid for BlackBerry [View news story]
    As I said before, when they announced that they are actively looking for a buyer and P. Watsa resigning from the board, it meant the knives were out and every man (woman) for himself.

    Why did they come out and let the world know they are up for sale? Because they finally had to face the hard truth that this company is going nowhere. Now all efforts to will be to drive the SP down as far as possible.

    Retail investors would be well advised to stay away from BB's downward spiral.

    I don't own any BB shares and do not intend to take any positions in the future.

    Good luck

  • BlackBerry launches latest smartphone [View news story]
    I've always said that a larger screen would have been a better way to go. The z10 was just too small. If you want to do all your work on a screen, wouldn't it have been a better idea to have bigger screen instead of squinting your eyes all day?

    T. Heins is a terrible presenter, he sounded awfully awkward during all of his previous presentations. It would have been better to pay real actors to do these events.

    I still wouldn't put too much faith in BB, they should have come out with this phone on the outset instead of giving critics ammunition to spit out crap about their product. Also, why Malaysia? Shouldn't they have unveiled this product in U.S. and Canada first? I'm not impressed with their decision making.

  • Gold Looks Interesting Again [View article]
    If they keep spitting out fake good news all the will retest it's 52 week low again. 50 million Americans are on food stamps compared to pre 2007 figures. 2200 new families are going on food stamps every month. I can't figure out where all this good news is coming from.

  • Report: Fairfax struggling to line up BlackBerry buyers [View news story]
    I guess the last few days were a suckers rally! Rumours get started and greed makes retail investors buy when they should have been selling. This is going to go back down big time.

  • Reports: BlackBerry looking to find buyer by Nov., Microsoft "keeping an eye" [View news story]
    I'm not a BB Bull, but I think the possible takeover of BB is probably getting more attention after the Nokia handset acquisition.

  • BlackBerry director: company can survive as "niche" player [View news story]
    BB shares will go back to 6 or 7 dollars, and that is when you will see a buyer coming in offering a 20% premium to that price.

    Sorry, but there isn't much hope left for BB. It's a company that is disintegrating in front of your eyes. For all you hopefuls out there, stop looking at this company with rose colored glasses. By signaling that they are looking at all options as to what do going forward including a possible sale of the company, you know that this company is going to go for next to nothing. I feel for all the investors, but you probably won't get a better chance to get out than now.

    I was a BB bull, but there comes a time when an investor has to look at the brutal truth. The brutal truth is that the market has decided that this the fate of BB. Save what money you have left and invest in some quality stocks.

  • BlackBerry Is Probably Worth More Than The Consensus Estimates [View article]
    You can make believe in your own little world that it's 30 dollars, no it's worth 40 dollars. At the end of the day, it's only worth what the buyer is willing to pay.

    Just ask yourself some simple questions. If you were a billionaire, wouldn't you want some company for as cheap as possible? Isn't that how you become a billionaire? People like Buffet buy companies for as cheap as possible and sell as high as possible, thus making them billionaires.

    My only advise to you is to stop dreaming...the sooner the better...for your own sake.

  • The Secret Plan To Take Over BlackBerry Is Positive, Not Negative [View article]
    It doesn't really matter what you think BB is worth. The SP will be driven down between 8 and 9 dollars before there is any bid. When the bid is in, they won't give anything more thant 20% premium above the 8 or 9 dollar SP.

    When it comes to selling of a company, no one can be trusted, not T.H., for sure not the analysts (their opinions aren't their own, their opinions are owned by who they work for), and certainly not Prem Watsa.

    I used to trade in and out of UUU (uranium one). Before their eventual de-listing from the TSX, the sp was driven down to about $1.75 by constant selling by "Anonymous". Luckily I wasn't holding any position until it started rising. They announced a buy back of all outstanding shares at about a 20% premium. Many people had bought it when it was above 3 or 4 wasn't a happy ending.

    I suspect the same thing will happen here. No one on the board of directors will lose anything. The only losers of BB will be the common retail shareholders.
