Come on. They could give data for just one country. Like the UK or Canada. Or just Feb sales. Or one weeks sales data. Something. But they remain silent. This could help build the momemtum for the launch here. If they wait til earnings, then launch here will happen and it will be ho hum. If sales are really strong, they should get it out there for people to see. It will increase excitement on the phone.
Most longs have been waiting a long time for this release. We can wait another 3 weeks for sales numbers. I'd rather see Thor(sten) crack the shorts in the teeth on earnings day than to give some half baked sales numbers prematurely to satisfy some blogger analyst. I support Thorsten.
the price for this could be a significantly lower stock price,while waiting for the squeeze to happen.the stock trading on non bbry news,and that bigger a far more financialy sound firms are getting competining product out agains t the bbry products and have larger ecco systems.
If Thor responded to every "bait" news these guys threw at him he would be making announcements DAILY. Thor has the upper hand and will announce when appropriate. The fact that Canaccord just increased his Feb estimate by 167% from just 2 weeks ago tells you that even the bears know the numbers are good. Have patience...they will announce BEFORE earnings to give US launch some hype....
The qtr ended 2 days ago. Feb ended 4 days ago. So there's 2 pieces of info they could release or just one piece. So the timing now is perfect. They are set to report in 24 days. The closer we get to that day, the more likely they say nothing. Leading to more opp for shorts and bear side analysts to take the stock down. Yes that canaccord increase surely is driving the stock up now. lol
If you release numbers you play right into the analysts and competitions hands. And if you respond to every negative report, when do you stop responding and when you do stop it's all over because they'll all conclude you're hiding something or their repoirts are correct! Be patient and the truth will be revealed. If you can't, don't invest in the company. Releasing numbers right now would be the worse thing management could do!
Really ? lets whine about it... Seriously what do they benefit for early reporting? NOTHING!!! ALL that would do is start a wave of more bashing before earnings so they can pick it apart and put even more speculation into the mix. Like THOR said... he is watching the numbers daily and in the meantime they are more focused on selling products rather than confront the basher media. I think most investors see through the BS #$%$ that is being tossed around by now.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
So using your logic, the sales no matter how good, will be picked apart. So giving some idea of how strong the phone has sold won't matter. So using your logic, they will do the same when the actual 10-q is released so nothing they report will be looked at as positive. So why stay long the stock using your logic?
Not "whining" at all. The company is the one going out banging their chests about how well they are doing. So back it up and lets get the stock moving. If you're gonna go out and talk up ur product, then you should back up that talk with numbers. It's been a month since the Canada launch and over a month since uk when they are out saying how great things were. And again, the free poisitive publicity. They need to let Americans see how well the stock is selling before launch. Then they will want to check out the phone before making a decision. So that's what they would benefit. If the street takes the price down this much on thise 300k sales calls and you have in fact sold 6 x that amount, the stock would rise substantially and the positives would outweight the negatives 10-1.
Day traders? I've been in the stock since 2011. I am an investor.
And sales data, if truly positive, would benefit those long the stock. Your point is dumb. They talk the talk but don't back it up. All the while the stock gets hammered. Makes no sense when you can get free publicity out and positive sentiment before us launch.
I couldn't agree more. My guess is that they won't release any numbers until the U.S launch has matured into the earnings release. In the mean time, the numbers look good and the product is getting rave reviews from the Canadian consumers. Check out the Bell, Rogers or Telus customer reviews. The lid will pop off this stock very soon.
