  • BlackBerry: Time To Throw In The Towel? [View article]

    Price is not truth when the float is 35% short.

    In this case price is manipulated and soon there will be hell to pay.

    And if you want to wait until fundamentals improve that is fine but that mentality leaves you out in the cold when trying to buy the shares back at double or triple the current price.

  • BlackBerry 10: No 'Killer App,' Investors Lose [View article]
    What the author epically fails to recognize is that BB10 is itself the killer App. Of course if he had actually tried the QNX-based experience before bashing it I wouldn't have to comment as this article would not have been written.

  • Lifting The Veil On Deutsche Bank's Flawed BlackBerry Study [View article]
    I see all of these tactics as overwhelmingly positive for BBRY because why else would there be such a coordinated agenda against the company if they didn't have anything of value to offer the marketplace?

    That there is such....fear....over BBRY becoming successful again indicates to me that the Canadian Tech Icon has the goods and it is only a matter of time before consumers are swayed back.

  • Throwing In The Towel On My BlackBerry Shares [View article]
    If you couldn't figure out there is a STOCKS app then I question the rest of your concerns...

    Also remember that BBRY is in the process of adjusting the OS to fix user complaints and that 10.2 is already on the horizon.

  • Why BlackBerry's Momentum Has Turned Around [View article]
    you totally missed the boat. BBRY's revolution wasn't in hardware. It was in software.

    Also BBRY is positioning itself as much more than a smartphone maker.

  • BlackBerry Short Interest Falls Off The Cliff [View article]
    Here's the full account of the fisherman and the broker which bears a lot of Wisdom IMHO:
    How To Be Successful?

    The American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellow fin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

    The Mexican replied, "Only a little while, amigo."

    The American then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish?

    The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs.

    The American then asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"

    The Mexican fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and busy life."

    The American scoffed, "I'm a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat with the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats, eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise."

    The Mexican fisherman asked, "But how long will this all take?"

    To which the American replied, "15-20 years."

    "But what then?"

    The American laughed and said that's the best part. "When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions."

    "Millions.. Then what?"

    The American scratched his head, then said, "Well, you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."

  • BlackBerry Is Still Fighting With 1 Hand Tied Behind Its Back [View article]
    Good read George.

    One other dimension to be aware of is on the political front: The U.S. has a vested interest in seeing Apple and Google remain the dominant players (although with Apple's tax avoidance strategy one is left to wonder why...) and the US hedge funds/politico do not want to see the tide shift to Blackberry, a Canadian company.

    In time, this will only prove to be a delay as the truth of what Blackberry offers to the marketplace cannot long be delayed.

    The recent reports of a massive Android virus only makes the need for BB's superior security all the more pressing.

    Be patient longs, soon the games will be over and the stock price will rise exponentially.

  • Did BlackBerry Sell 200,000 Passports Or A Million? [View article]
    One thing I am certain of is that this is just the beginning of the Passport's success. sales are going to increase rather than taper off over the next several quarters as the word gets out and people see for themselves just how superior an experience using the wide-screen Passport enabled with the beautiful and seamless 10.3 BB10 OS.

    Just the beginning folks.

    You said it George.

  • BlackBerry Z10 U.K. Pricing Remains At A Premium, Despite Misleading Analyst Report [View article]
    There is a concerted effort, mostly American-based, to discredit BlackBerry.

    To me, this indicates that BB10 has the goods.
    Back up the truck and load up on shares.
    Put them away for a year or two and research your favorite beaches.

  • BlackBerry, Samsung And An Unlikely Alliance That Could Fuel BlackBerry's Turnaround [View article]
    Because BB10 is superior to Android in every way.

    The market will eventually figure this out.

  • Apple-IBM At BlackBerry's Gates [View article]
    Apple/IBM have this dream that they can somehow join forces to compete with the mighty IP that underlies BES12/QNX/BBM/BB10 which took years to develop by the top math, programming, and physics minds in the world.

    Good luck with that.

  • 3 Reasons Why BlackBerry 10's Strong Start Does Not Mean Buy [View article]
    here's the bottom line: those Canucks and English that actually have their hands on the new device uniformly say that they can't put it down, that they love it so much and that when they picked up their old iphone found themselves trying to close apps like on BB10.

    the new OS is an intuitive new system that is addictive in its freshness and fluidness.

    With 80 Million entrenched users all hankering to upgrade their BB7s it won't be long before their friends get a chance to see and try the new devices and then...well...

    then sales are going to spread like WILDFIRE.

    By the time they go on sale in the U.S. in mid-March the fervor surrounding the new OS will spark Americans to keep an open mind and through their curiosity sales will start to ramp up quarter over quarter and the company will be out of the woods and back on the beach.

    don't fool yourself, go long.
