  • BlackBerry (BBRY +1.4%) spiked in afternoon trading after U.K.-based SA contributor Michael Collins reported of strong Q10 demand at a Carphone Warehouse store on launch day. According to Collins, the store sold out of its stock of 2K units within 90 minutes, with demand apparently well above that seen for the Z10. Some of the demand came from exporters, many of whom were "buying 20+ units each." (Q10 reviews[View news story]

  • 2013 "production expectations" for the Z10 (BBRY -1.2%) have been trimmed by 4M-6M units, believes Wedge Partners' Brian Blair, who has been bearish on BlackBerry for years. He adds U.S. Z10 launches " have provided no evidence of meaningful sell-through," and is forecasting <10M 2013 BB10 shipments vs. Street estimates of 20M+. Meanwhile, Pac Crest's James Faucette (previous) believes U.S., U.K., and Canadian Z10 inventories are too high, and that production cuts are a matter of time. Also: BlackBerry says the Q10 is expected to sell for a subsidized $249 in the U.S., $50 more than the 16GB iPhone 5. [View news story]
    How is such pure BS speculation/manipulation even allowed to happen in the first place? There's no accountability whatsoever on Wall Street.

  • Apple (AAPL -5.8%) has hit levels last seen in Dec. '11 following Cirrus Logic's warning and a Digitimes report about declining iPad Mini shipments. Cross Research calls Cirrus' warning "a reminder of weakening demand, and the challenges around product transitions" for Apple. Tero Kuittinen, noting sub-30M June quarter iPhone sales estimates and worries about the margin impact of emerging markets promotions, thinks "several nightmare scenarios have been priced in." "The naked fear of former Apple bulls is exactly what we need just before the earnings come out." [View news story]
    Apple's products still look well designed and fashionable but it lost its innovation when Jobs left this world.

  • Telefonica (TEF) obtains a $257M credit line from Canada's export agency to purchase BlackBerry (BBRY) phones and services. The deal comes shortly after the debt-laden carrier obtained a $1B credit line from Sweden's export agency to buy mobile infrastructure gear from Ericsson. [View news story]
    Not taking into account the BBRY services, that's roughly 400k phones assuming a price tag of $600/unit.

  • China Central Television (CCTV) has accused Apple (AAPL) and Volkswagen of giving consumers a bad deal. It's worth taking notice, as it was CCTV allegations about chicken quality at KFC that led to a plunge in sales. [View news story]
    For a foreigner, Kissinger actually knew the real China inside out and never followed the Western propaganda like a sheep. Nowadays, among the American politicians maybe Jon Huntsman still knows a thing or two.

    Most internationals sell the items they make in China substantially higher than the prices Westerners buy them for. Vietnam has it just as hardly as China when it comes to getting scammed by those foreign firms.
