  • BlackBerry Estimates Decline As Earnings Approach [View article]
    A canned expression to entice people to generate transaction fees for him.....genius.

  • BlackBerry Estimates Decline As Earnings Approach [View article]
    I love BBRY homers--any article about BBRY that isn't glowingly positive gets BASHED. The author took the time to put together pro forma estimates, technical analysis, and a lot of other information, and he hasn't really inserted much "opinion" into the article.

    How does everyone respond? By telling him he's CRAZY because Chen is a GENIUS and ALL THE SHORTS ARE GONNA GET KILLED!

    So basically--save your facts and useful information. Either tell everyone how wonderful BBRY is or prepare for a s**tstorm of uneducated idiots who blindly believe in BBRY telling you how wrong you are.

  • Are BlackBerry Shorts Getting Too Cocky? [View article]
    Right......people shorting the has-been smartphone-turned-soft... company should take a good look at what happened to investors who shorted the massively overvalued, super hot electric car company.

    That's certainly not an apples-to-apples comparison. It's probably not even apples to oranges......it's almost like apples to chairs. Totally unrelated entities.

    This comment reads like disagreement, but then you went on to reiterate my original point.

    Are you really comparing one of the world's largest, most successful tech companies (not my opinion, just facts) to a company that was a major player in the smartphone space-turned-software/... company because their smartphone position got destroyed? And in the process the latter company's stock has tanked from over $65 to $12 in less than four years?

    C'mon now.......I'll buy a turnaround story, but you're just drinking kool aid....

    I was merely agreeing with Aristotle5 and giving my POV on that whole situation. My comments had nothing to do with your article.

    But, for what it's worth, you didn't say anything about how much money you've made trading BBRY so what I said wouldn't have applied to you anyways.

  • Strong Passport Sales Suggest BlackBerry Will Show Black Ink This Quarter [View article]
    So he took the upside number, increased it by 150% and used that as the basis for his projections. What's so wrong with that? (Sarcasm)

    Agreed--all I want to know is if you are long, short or have no position. If you need to say that you bought at 30 for context, I can deduce that if the stock is at 60 now (pulling #s out of thin air) that you've done quite well.

    What I don't care to know is what % gain you've achieved on this stock or that stock. It's been a stock pickers market for 5 years now--if you haven't been making $ over this period you wouldn't be writing articles on Seeking Alpha to begin with.

    If you want to argue the stock is undervalued and that BBRY will eventually wade through the quagmire it is currently stuck in and return to relevance, that's fine. This could easily be a $20-30 stock in the next 3-5 years if some things swing in BBRY's favor.

    Saying there is no point to living in the past, and actually believing that the future is "very bright" for Blackberry shows you are either capable of lying to yourself or that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what the words "very" and "bright" mean.

  • Gambling Stocks Not Worth The Gamble For Now [View article]
    Strong agreement w/ Jason H.

    You (contributor) put more thought/energy into this than most do, so that's good, but you're sort of nitpicking metrics that validate your hypothesis. Like Jason pointed out, you can't even begin to compare Caesars to Sands or Melco Crown for that matter. These companies are expanding into new regions and in solid financial shape--their debt isn't necessarily being taken on because they need it, it's just the financing route they chose for particular projects.

    Caesars on the other hand is making deals with their creditors to get back on their feet--not comparable situations.

    If shorts are getting "cooked" today then the longs got "deep fried" 3 years ago. Funny how time removes the painful memories for all the BBRY fans on SA.

    The likelihood of BBRY showing black ink this month is the same as the author turning against BBRY--it aint happenin.

  • BlackBerry: A Classic Turnaround Story [View article]
    But let's not bother comparing the performance of BBRY and MSFT stock--that'd be too revealing, and would rightfully minimize the overall importance of one single device/tablet/phone on a company's overall value.

    Oh wait, SeekingAlpha is a tech gadget review/promotion site, how could I forget? My bad.

  • Have Investors Overreacted To Chipotle's Q3 Earnings Report? [View article]
    And even if Chipotle's growth is driven by millenials--is there something wrong with that? On one hand maybe they don't react as kindly to price increases, and I'm sure there's plenty more fodder for that cannon (if that argument is true), but they'll be eating Chipotle for a long time!

    And anyone who says the food is bland or average is nuts. That's just crazy. If it's not your favorite food in the world or you think the stock is overvalued, that's fine, but don't argue the extreme just to make a point. Not necessary and not believable.
