  • Vringo gets 6-month extension to regain Nasdaq bid compliance [View news story]
    absolutely not.

    why push the panic button now when the ducks are lining up for a settlement with ZTE and a possible GVR granted against Google?!

    This is when you double down!

  • BlackBerry: Ask Yourself 2 Questions [View article]
    look up 'stalking horse bid' that's what Prem tried...the company was never for sale for $9. that was simply to solicit offers and try to bump the share price by shaking the shorts...

    BB keeps filing patents...you would be wise not to remain willfully blind to that fact.

  • BlackBerry: Ask Yourself 2 Questions [View article]
    the patents of Blackberry ARE immensely valuable!

    and in FACT all the major players DID come out to solicit Blackberry during that 'stalking horse' offer that Fairfax made back in 2013.

    the reason that they didn't buy the company was complex at the time, and remains so today.

    At the time BB was bleeding cash to the tune of a billion a quarter.

    Management had to get that under control which they have.

    Secondly, BB is strongly held by institutions and they would not then, nor now, sell out a basement prices.

    If you think a company like Samsung can come along and dangle $15/share and make off with the IP you are dreaming. The patient institutional investors can wait.

    Chen said it best, "The World is coming to Blackberry"

    QNX will be the backbone for any and all vital networks worldwide within 10 years.

    Patience here will pay.

  • Vringo Sends Strong Message To SCOTUS And Google With Writ Of Certiorari And Why Shares Could Pop [View article]
    agreed. I'm underwater as well but have greatly reduced my average cost.

    My sense of it is a ZTE settlement is the most likely of the 'ifs' and if so will be well worth the time and stress invested in this stock.

    @Tech

    I can appreciate your effort and concern to keep the exuberant longs level-headed with your astute reality-check of the past events but also do not forget that this stock is facing a binary event:

    Settlement/Court Victory vs. Google or ZTE

    or

    Nothing/Bankruptcy.

    Given that one of the most prestigious lawyers in the USA has come on board to champion their cause against Google and the promising developments with the SCC v TEVA and its implications there is some hope for a massive windfall should a GVR be granted. (that will likely force Google's hand to settle.)

    Secondly there is the ongoing litigation vs. ZTE. Have you forgotten that Vringo is winning time and time again against ZTE and won injunctions?

    At some point in time a settlement is coming and it won't be for 1M...

    trading at 60 cents a share I'm buying this hand over fist and I"m looking forward based on recent development and not backwards in the becoming-distant past.

    Ask yourself a third question:

    What is Blackberry's IP worth in the coming Internet of Things?

    and then buy hand over fist.

  • BlackBerry Adding Android To Phones: Desperation Or Genius? [View article]
    not true cereal...

    BB10 has the best antenna and speakers patents in the world.

    and superior battery life to boot.

    I really don't understand this 'ecosystem' issue with BB10 anymore ever since it began to operate Android Apps.

    For example:

    I have a SONOS system running in my house and I use DEEZER (think: Spotify) as my music system...I can control it all with both my Passport and my IPad.

    Same with the Fitbit fitness tracker I recently bought. it synchs perfectly with my passport via the fitbit app that I seamlessly downloaded on the Amazon app store.

    All that is missing is a BB10/QNX powered tablet. Once that arrives then BB is more or less a complete ecosystem.

  • An Android Handset Won't Help BlackBerry's Device Sales Or Reputation [View article]
    Here's both the strategy and how it will play out:

    the BB android phone (hopefully with BB10 too or at least incorporated as Kurt has mentioned is already possible) will go on sale.

    People will buy it because they can keep the inter-functionality with their android apps and devices.

    Then they will fall in love with the design, build and top-shelf quality that is a hallmark for BB ever since the Z30 was released.

    Then they will fall deeper in love with the QNX powered OS.

    Then Blackberry will come to rule to world.

    Long, strong and patient.

    The Future is Black.

    $7 billion dollars.... so even if they dilute and double their entire share issuance that would still work out to almost $40/share.

    I could live with that :)

    KIA you keep side-stepping the true talent in this equation and the one that matters most- QNX and its microkernal architecture.

    here you go:

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) puts have been popular in recent months. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the handset maker has racked up a 50-day put/call volume ratio of 0.47 -- in the 83rd annual percentile.

    BBRY puts are trading at an accelerated rate today, too, with 10,000 contracts on the tape. In fact, it looks like one trader rolled his bearish bet down and out, selling to close a 2,000-contract block of June 12 puts, and simultaneously buying to open a lot of 3,000 July 10 puts.

    Not all of the intraday action is bearish, however, In fact, BBRY's most active option is the weekly 6/26 11.50-strike call, which traders are buying to open in hopes the stock will take out $11.50 by the close on Friday, June 26, when the series expires.

    Elsewhere, short interest on BBRY is elevated. Nearly 18% of the stock's float is sold short, representing more than 13 days' worth of pent-up buying demand, at average daily trading levels.

    This could translate into a catalyst for future gains -- by way of a short-covering rally -- should BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) resume its longer-term uptrend. Year-over-year, the shares have advanced over 20% to trade at $9.38, but are off 1.7% today.
