  • BlackBerry Outsells Competition At The U.K.'s Largest Retail Store And In Business Sales [View article]
    MICHAEL - Great work. I will email you some more facts later in the week that will justify what you are saying. As it is confidential, I can not post it. Feel free to contact me if you so wish.

    I hate people who lie as well. Forbes is the worse ... then those lying analysts.

  • Major U.K. Outlets Hike BlackBerry Z10 Price Above iPhone 5, Black Market Thriving [View article]
    Ditto.
    In Canada, my friend works at one of the big 3 carriers.
    He said that they are still behind. His store is selling between 70 - 110 per week. When the phones arrives, they need to call those on the waiting list. I asked him why doesn't your boss order 500. He said that they would order 200 ... and 50 or 60 would arrive.

    He mentioned that one business ordered 75 of them ( his best 1 customer sale so far )

    I think just like you.

    If only we can send a message to all shareholder, " DON"T SELL YOUR BBRY SHARES NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS" , then this stock could be valued at $500.00/share over night.

    Then we watch the shorts go bankrupt 1 at a time.

    I feel your pain.
    Don't listen to the negative stories. There are 130 million shares sold short. Good news on March 28 will move this stock like crazy. Take a look at NFLX. See what happened there.

    2 sides to every trade - buy and sell - 25% of the people think that the shares will go lower, 75% of the people think that the shares will go higher.

    I have a feeling that when this stock starts moving upwards .... it's going to be on a tear for the next 24 months !!!

  • BlackBerry 10: It's Shiny, It's New, But Will It Sell? [View article]
    I disagree with the author.
    He is long Apple, so he is cheering for Apple.
    It only makes sense for him to be negative about BBRY.

    Everyone who sees my Z10 in action, tells me they are going to go get one. And they do.

    The Z10 is selling out in all countries so far : UK, Canada, and I just heard that pre-orders in the UAE are at record levels ( these go on sale this Sunday )

    All these records are taking place, and BBRY has not even brought their loving KeyBoard into the market for their 80 million subscribers to purchase.

    Therefore : BBRY - STRONG BUY
    Therefore : APPL - HOLD

    The "whisper" on the street is that RIMs revenues will shatter average analysts estimates by more then 50%. Stock will soar on the news. BB10 is selling like crazy at those carriers who are offering pre-orders.

    And without their flagship phone .... the Q10.

    Wait till that launches ... BBRY will sell 100 million phones per year, and the shares will be up to $200.00 a piece.

  • BlackBerry: Little Evidence It Can Deliver [View article]
    Interesting article.

    Do you know why the Z10 will sell well? It's because it's a great phone, and word of mouth will be the driving factor.

    Go to 10 different carriers, and ask them which phone is a good phone to get. Based on what you are told, that is a pretty good indication of how well they will sell.

    FYI - Long BBRY

  • Smartphone Entry Barriers Have Ceased To Exist. Welcome To The Smartphone 2.0 Era [View article]
    This is the way that I see it: (time to do the math – follow along)

    63 M Population of UK
    35 M Population of Canada
    8 M Population of UAE

    106 M Population of where Z10 was launched (1 phone only)

    World population = 6.98B = 1.5% of the world population where the z10 was available.

    Estimate of Z10 sold in the month of February: 300,000
    Time frame: Under 4 weeks

    If the Z10 was launched world wide, based on the same ratio, there would have been 20 Millions Z10 sold in 1 month. = 60 Million Z10 in a quarter.

    Therefore the analyst that called BBRY to sell 1.75M in under 4 weeks is really saying: BBRY should have sold 116M phones if it launched worldwide in February.

    That's awesome !!!!.

    George - You are so right on this one. I wish you can convince Rocco about this. He thinks that buying shares of RIMM is like, "Catching a falling knife"

  • Major U.K. Outlets Hike BlackBerry Z10 Price Above iPhone 5, Black Market Thriving [View article]
    MICHAEL - Thanks for the leg work. I know that the Z10 is selling really really well. Just to keep things on the 'QT' in Waterloo, they are beginning to use words such as "Hotcakes", "Red Shorts", "Green Bars". All these are in reference to the Z10.

    What if, you put out an article titled " ON FEBRUARY 25th, ALL SHAREHOLDERS MUST NOT SELL ANY OF THEIR SHARES IN BBRY, AND WE CAN ALL WATCH SOME FUN ACTION"

    Would the shorts get worried, and buy the stock up to the $250.00/share price?

    You should try it to see what happens.

    I'm in Canada. Still selling great.
    Our firm is STILL waiting for our Z10.
    ( mind you ... we told then .... " No Rush" sell the Z10 to fill your other orders first )
