A little bit about me:I hold two US issued software patents, one of which is issued internationally. I have 3+ decades experience as a software architect and 14 years as an intellectual property researcher. I've delivered 1/2 a dozen shrink-wrap retail software packages to market and spent 3 years at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). --------------------------------------------- **Here's my BlackBerry Scorecard:**(1) $BBRY - closed, winMar 2014 $8 puts Sold [11/4/2013] for a 35% profit.(2) $BBRY - closed, win[12/31/13] flipped 10K shares BBRY on for a small $0.12 P/S profit.(3) $BBRY 12/21/13 $6 puts - closed, loseputs expired worthless(4) $BBRY - closed, winFlipped some 03/22/2014 $7 puts for a small profit.(5) $BBRY 09/20/2014 puts - closed, loseputs expired worthless (6) $BBRY 3/21/14 - closed, winRecently purchased April 19 $10 puts in anticipation of an earnings crash on the 28th.Okay, sold my April 19 $10 strike puts for a cool 34% profit.(7) $BBRY 4/3/14 - closed, loseJust added 4/19/14 $8 strike calls giving me a lopsided straddle.I think BlackBerry will swing up to $9 in the short term before heading back into the abyss.
