    I am awaiting a report from James Faucette stating that this is all an illusion and that he is cutting his estimates for the FY2015 Q4.

  • BlackBerry: A Classic Turnaround Failure Continues  [View article]
    Yawn................ Happy New Year to all!

    Usual suspects on either side of the coin. Typical comments from the bears regarding any success on the turnaround.

    Ladies and gentlemen I have a news flash for you. Some of us will be successful and some of us won't on our positions in this stock.

    Share price is up. Costs have been cut. New products and alliances have been created or formed. Still have lots of cash. Long term plans have been formulated for the company's recovery.

    We will see where the chips will fall in the next 6 months. I am going to go enjoy a great wine and relax.

    Cheers!!!!!

  • Is BlackBerry Really Working With Boeing On A Self-Destructing Phone?  [View article]
    Sometimes the comments are absolutely ludicrous. I do not recall John Chen saying anywhere in the last ER that he was closing down the handset division. Yet you constantly spout that it is being closed down. Focus satan. The new phones and partnerships that are being created are not being done to close down the handset division.

    Will they be as big as they were at one time? Who knows. Unlikely, but anything is possible.

    One thing for sure on this stock. Someone will be right and someone will be wrong. I think the institutions are a better judge than the small investors that are constantly exchanging comments. Primecap has increased their stake in the company to the point that they are the largest shareholder and they are based in California. Hmmmmmmm.......methinks I smell something burning.

  • BlackBerry Finally Takes E-Commerce Seriously, Hardware Looking Bullish  [View article]
    For the Kevin Leary comments on the new BB Classic I had to go to the BNN website>Shows tab> Business Day PM to watch the video. Interesting comments by Kevin regarding the new Classic.

    BTW I did it on my BB Playbook.

    Either way this plays out on Friday some will be right and some will be wrong.

    Long BB

  • BlackBerry: Master Chen Is Personally Lighting Up The Samsung Rocket  [View article]
    Leadership is the key component to Blackberry's resurgence. John Chen is methodically moving the company in the right direction. Strategic partnerships and acquisitions will improve the organization. The puzzle is being constructed one piece at a time.

  • BlackBerry Shorts Getting Cooked  [View article]
    My conviction is that BB will survive and prosper in its specialized area of the enterprise segment of the market. I may be right or I may be wrong. I am willing to stand behind my beliefs with a substantial investment. If things go well I may move to Mexico very quickly.

  • When The BlackBerry Dam Breaks: Rising Revenue And Other Good Things The Bears Are Not Telling You  [View article]

    Niche markets work very well for numerous companies and are very profitable. Blackberry is focusing on their niche and Chen is executing the turnaround as he stated.

    Not everypone wants to drive a Lamborghini (BB). Some people want to drive the mass produced cars Fit, Forte, Lada, Prius (Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi).

  • BGC downgrades BlackBerry, thinks FQ2 sales could miss  [View news story]
    "Likely to remain pressured", "EPS estimate" and "He forecasts".

    That language conveys a strong conviction.

    BGC is a US brokerage firm that is listed on the NASDAQ. That explains it all.
