    • talbano: Whether u like BBRY or not - That have a huge Bal sheet and 70 million users, for an analyst to say they will go bankrupt is irresponsible.

    • OneLongTrade: Exactly my thoughts this morning. He probably has his clients on a long AAPL short BBRY spread and is pumping both sides.

    • OneLongTrade: Terrible analytical work and terrible opinion. He used to right on the money on AAPL, but I think he's lost his marbles now.

    • talbano: One- CNBC is issed he did it. Herb Greenberg posted on twitter right away saying how wrong he was- 10 yrs ago APPL was going to go bankrupt

    • talbano: I think BBRY gets bought - they have too good of a system and some companies will never allow unsecure devices, I have work in this industry

    • John Rayhall: They would never go BK they would sell the company way before that happened.

    • talbano: I doubt they will be a big as they once were if they stay solo but I almost see Vodaphone or Tmobile coming at them.

    • OneLongTrade: Yep agreed. He can't say a company with cash on its balance sheet is going to go bankrupt. Just silly. And his AAPL call is pretty awful too

    • OneLongTrade: He used to be bullish on AAPL with reasonable price targets and estimates, never getting overexcited at any one point. But his target today

    • OneLongTrade: is just to one up the guy from Topeka who upgraded AAPL yesterday. And Munster's only concern is the pace of innovation for AAPL.

    • OneLongTrade: Not a single mention of potential margin compression, the Proview case in China, slowing demand in general, etc.

      4/3/12
    • John Rayhall: Iphone 4 is way better than a BB! Lol :D
      4/3/12
    • John Rayhall: Btw what is BBRY book value? $19?
      4/3/12
    • talbano: JR - I like my BB -

    • Stan Low: The fall in BBRY today was more due to patent suit than due to any comments from clueless analysts. But of course, they will take credit...

    • Stilldazed: I'm no expert, but my grandkids are all going Android and dumping iPhone.
      4/3/12
    • John Rayhall: I know a lot of people that love BB I love my 4S though not trading it. I'm getting a BB for work though so I'll let you know how I like it.

    • talbano: Dal- BBRY- I think you overstate that one time outage IMO - There security is better than any other phone for business & stan the stock fell
      4/3/12
    • talbano: way before the lawsuit was known about
      4/3/12
    • Stan Low: I saw it on Cdn news outlets this am. SA didnt report it till afternoon
      4/3/12
    • talbano: Dal- if you say so. - We all know how smart the feds are - I know from wroking in FIN serv, you can wipe a BBry clean remotely .
      4/3/12
    • talbano: I have spend 15 years in IT but haven't a clue I guess
      4/3/12
    • talbano: YOu know everyone has an opinon,but MY FRI KING point was for analyst to go on TV and say a company is going brankrupt is wrong
      4/3/12
    • talbano: SP- there is life outside of SA - I show the report of the lawsuit on the wires hit - Doubt canada had it faster
      4/3/12
    • Stan Low: Not saying Canada had it faster than wherever you saw it - but before wire story, it was down 0.50-0.60, after went down 1.20 ...
      4/3/12
    • Stan Low: The two geniuses for sure didn't know ... which begs the question - what exactly do they analyze?
      4/3/12
    • talbano: the point is the analyst doesn't even cover BBRY that's why CNBC was so pissed. He had no right to make a derogatory comment like that
