  • Facebook: Good For Speculation, Not Investment [View article]
    Lost me there Frank; yes, a roman emperor got into it, and made it the official state religion, just as Islam took off through having been adopted by Arabs who were in conquest mode at that time, and who imposed it on their new subjects at the point of a sword. So the relevance of this phenomenon to FB is...?

    Frank, here's one guy who tried FB (with two pages, as it happens) and decided it's not for me; it takes all kinds.

  • Here's Why Investors Say BlackBerry Isn't Dead Yet [View article]
    I disagree; if you already have a substantial holding that's already underwater, why increase your exposure, to what is proving to be a very dodgy stock? Forget the "averaging down" notion that it somehow decreases your loss (it doesn't, it just spreads it over more shares...) as, if the price continues to rise, your existing holding will be worth more, giving you a chance to exit if you can catch a peak. On the other hand, if the price plummets, you should be able to get back in at a better price, later, when you are more likely to be able to make a profit. Right now, I defy anyone to predict with accuracy how the price will behave, other than it aint going to stand still!

    Whoever, the first step on this journey was taken a long time ago, and has a way to go before it makes any sense! Wait and see!

  • BlackBerry sells 4.3M phones; sets deal with Foxconn for emerging markets [View news story]
    How much can they be? This is the "dog eats dog" end of the market, that a company like BBRY should have avoided at all costs! In trench warfare, the army with the most troops always won...

    Are they "New Shares"? I thought he was just cashing in some shares he already owned.

  • BlackBerry's CEO Discusses F3Q 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Good point about the bloatware, LY, especially Android; with QNX, BB10 has a much smaller footprint, and can be more nimble as a result (if they don't screw up)! What a pity they didn't capitalise on that by offering the phones at a lower price point...

  • How Companies Should Take Advantage Of Markets [View article]
    For now, ca, but what's holding up these record index values? Perpetual QE, maybe? It can hardly be the state of the economy (even if you believe the latest figures)! What goes up can certainly come tumbling back down...

  • How Companies Should Take Advantage Of Markets [View article]
    Hey Doc, shouldn't there be a distinction between a "dilution" of stock, and the Zuck selling shares he already owns (which is what he's done here, if I've read it right)? I know he's the CEO and whatever, but how are shares he holds any different (other than for the A and B distinction) from those of any other stockholder? Surely they are already part of the valuation!

  • Facebook, Zuckerberg, others to face lawsuit over IPO [View news story]
    It has always been so, RD; the system favours the insiders, and every one else need to take that into account. It's one of the main reasons I'm looking at a completely different way of trading, that should at least minimise that advantage.

  • BlackBerry Could Sell A Lot More Phones This Quarter Than The Street Expects - Here Is Why [View article]
    So, DD, whether totally secure or not, BBRY phones are harder to crack than the others. That seems a pretty good advert, to me!

    Not necessarily, mlc, as BBRY is in another country, and even US companies are kicking up about this! my own bottom line is that, even if they can't, it's still the toughest nut to crack, and I'm far more likely to be targeted by less able hackers than the NSA have, so if I had to have a "secure" phone, BBRY would be the only choice.

  • BlackBerry hires two more execs, strikes BBM install deal with LG [View news story]
    So you should be, Da, as those who actually know about the products (who are very few) and tried them, report that the products are fine. In today's competitive markets, insufficient and/or ineffective advertising is the kiss of death, however good the product!
