    Joelew - why is rimm going up everyday?

    Here is my theory. There aren't that many shares floating and shorts are cashing in. I also believe that with Prem et al controlling so many shares he can manipulate the share price anywhere he wants to now. Exactly the same way that JCP was being manipulated by Ackman after they reported awful earnings and the stock rose. When you have the shares and the CEO in the back of your pocket you can make a killing through selling options and manipulating share price. Also, with RIM having their most critical launch in history, they need the stock rising and not plummeting. They have already announced that their will be limited advertising so the last thing they need is the stock in the sewer and trumping their news stories.

    Just like JCP, the fundamentals will eventually rule the day and the stock will reflect that. RIM's fundamentals will be awful this quarter and even worse after the Playbook phone is proven to be a failure in the market.

      • " Anyone with an ounce of intelligence understands bb10 will be successful."

        RIM is a handset maker trying to remain relevant in a computer world. Smartphones are about to enter the graveyard of old tech (typewriters, calculators and PDAs)

        No body wants a dead end OS that has no ecosystem and buy a product that the warranty will probably outlive the company.

        RIM is the poster boy for outdated tech.

      • Please define what you mean by "BB10 will be successful". How many will sell? Will they sell as many as they did with the BB7 launch or less? Is that success?

      • that was petulantly-weak counter argument as usual.

        "Anyone with an ounce of intelligence understands bb10 will be successful."

        based on what? it's one of the most botched tech releases in some time. rimtards with the their revisionist history think january 2013 is somehow earth-shattering, when it shoulda been released to production a year prior. actually, if waterloo wasn't so incompetent, they would've angled for a december/holiday release while people are really spending blindly.

    • The answer is simple Joe, the shorts have to buy and are under more pressure to do so, as the price rises.
      People/firms are buying because they see a recovery, strong or disappointing, is only a few months away and if it's successful, their gains will be large if they buy now.
      Even if BB10 disappoints in the market, the stock will likely never drop back down below $10-12 range and they will lose little.
      Personally I see a range for RIMM between $12=$20 by April/May next year.
      Cheer up, you're not losing a lot of money here so drop the bearish view of RIMM

      Sentiment: Hold
