no guarantees after the run up we've had... but I only see positive news coming in the next few weeks and CEO has hinted of more surprises on launch day.. so odds are in our favor it goes higher.. just keep a tight stop if it bothers you that much. If we get a big move I would bet that move is higher. If BB10 is ok we go higher if it is a huge hit we go much higher.. if it is so-so we will be bought. After weighing everything I've read so far I see it as about 75-80% chance BB10 succeeds.
That's terrible advice! STOP losses are the LAST thing anyone should use this close to launch and with that many shares shorted.
A bear raid, which is almost guaranteed in the next couple of days will wipe out Stop Losses in under 60 seconds. Seen them hundreds of times.
DO NOT USE STOP LOSSES.
Most analysts would put their current value of buildings, patentsm, and cash at about the current stock price.
So, can the new handsets and OS sell in the millions of units (I hear they need to sell 13 million units in 2013 to turn a profit on the handset). What % of their current 79M users will upgrade?
Personally, I find the new handsets very appealing. Powerful, fast, smooth, secure... a real leapfrog over iPhone 5 and Android IMO. I am super psyched to get one -- and have been a happy iPhone user and evangelist for years!
Beyond that, will they find ways to successfully monetise the QNX platform? Will the other 4 devices (presumably more phones and tablets) excite?
Is the bloom of of the iPhone's rose?
I feel pretty bullish about most of these factors, so I see upside for 12-24 months.
But don't rely on others to tell you how to feel; do your DD, be diversified, and invest only what you can afford to lose.
