  • BlackBerry And Sandridge Doomed? Ask Prem Watsa And Sanjeev Parsad  [View article]
    If BBRY is a value investment, then why hasn't Warren Buffet invested in BBRY? I see zero evidence of BBRY being anywhere near Graham buy stock.

    @BBRYawesomeness: No I can't substantiate a false rumor. Shouldn't BBRY have substantiated it? Shouldn't have BBRY have come out to deny the 2 million phones sales to China? Instead of longs, who have no inside info? Detwiler Fenton put its name on their report. The proBBRY rumors are nameless.

  • BlackBerry: Letting You In On A Secret  [View article]
    Saying people will buy the Q10, in droves, because it has a physical qwerty keyboard, is similar to saying people won't buy new cars, because they are used to their Model T's. That retro instant antique is going nowhere.

  • Clearwire (CLWR) receives yet another alternative financing proposal from a money manager. Hedge fund Aurelius Capital is offering Clearwire $80M in convertible debt financing as a replacement for the funds it's receiving from Sprint (S). Last week, Crest Financial offered Clearwire $240M in convertible debt financing. Though taking Sprint's money and still officially supporting its $2.97/share buyout offer, Clearwire still hasn't made a final decision on Dish Network's $3.30/share bid.  [View news story]
    For a squeeze-out, the consent of the minority shareholders, is not required for doing a merger, but the acquirer still has a fiduciary responsibility (a responsibility Softbank doesn't want to take on) to the interests of the minority investors. That includes negotiating (in court if need be) a price for the minority shareholders shares. The acquirer does not have the right of "eminent domain" to just take the shares for whatever price that they choose to offer. Holdouts in these deals often get paid off at higher prices, just so that they go away.

    Of course, as it stands now, S isn't going to get that 90% of shares, so any squeeze out is a moot point.

    When will HLF announce who their new auditor will be. With all those accounting firms lining up for their business, the announcement should have been made today.

    Will they investigate the false rumors such as some one ordering a million phones in advance of the USA release? How about the rumor of the Chinese military ordering 2 million phones? Those rumors moved the stock up on lies. At least Detwiler Fenton put their name on their report. For that I'm inclined to believe them, especially when I know of cases of people taking their junk Z phones back for a refund.

  • BlackBerry: Z10 Margins Are Higher Than You Think  [View article]
    Your guess is good as anyone's. What Blackberry's margin is not, it is not higher than AAPL's profit margin. Tim Cook's expertise in Supply Chain Optimization is the best there is. It's one of the big reason's Steve Jobs put him in charge at AAPL.

  • Upcoming FCC spectrum auctions should be structured to guarantee smaller nationwide carriers - no doubt T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) and Sprint (S) - are able to purchase a fair share, so as to "improve the competitive dynamic among nationwide carriers and benefit consumers," the DOJ argues in a public filing. Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) and AT&T (T), who are already complaining the auctions (arriving in 2014 or later) will cap how much spectrum they can acquire, can't be happy to hear that.  [View news story]
    Right now, CLWR, a small telecom, controls more spectrum than any other company in the USA. If the CLWR/S/Softbank deal is allowed to go through, that combination will control more spectrum that Verizon Wireless and ATT together, all under the control of a Japanese company.

    Let any new spectrum sold by the government, be auctioned off in a free market, with the highest bidder winning, to add the most money into the US Treasury, for the American taxpayers.

  • The FTC has released 100 complaints from people who paid money to companies that promoted "work from home" opportunities, only to discover later that they were being asked to join Herbalife's (HLF) network and sell its products. The people then had trouble getting refunds. The batch of complaints about Herbalife is the second this year that has been released and will add to questions about its business practices.  [View news story]
    HLF is running a MLM pyramid scheme fraud. That's what HLF has to do with it.

  • Steer Clear Of The BlackBerry Dog  [View article]
    The huge number of Z10s being returned is quite amazing for any smart phone. Reports of Z10 just stopping, with no way to rescue your info, started as soon as the phones were issued. This speaks to a quality control problem at BBRY, on top of everything else that is wrong with BBRY.

  • Why Did Alcatel-Lucent Rise 4.2% Wednesday?  [View article]
    Lots of investors think ALU is a takeover target. So when the relatively low stock price, goes even lower, as it did lately, then it makes good sense to acquire more shares at a lower price. When a lot of people do that, at the same time, then the price will rise, especially on a low priced stock such as ALU. No mystery there.

    Really big problem for HLF. 3 years of audits withdrawn. Violates NYSE rules. HLF should be delisted. Unless they can get someone else to rejuggle the books for the last 3 years. No one in the top 10 would touch that with a ten foot electric cattle prod.

  • Gold Is Not A Commodity: What Moves The Price?  [View article]
    Gold IS a commodity. Its price is determined by one's personal perception of reality. And, that can vary quite a bit from person to person.
