BlackBerry Significant Share Gain in Canada in 1Q13 Up to 13.5% from 6%. More Gains in 2Q13 Expected
I expect significant share gains in 2Q13 as the Z10 and Q10 have more time in the market. Higher gains in Emerging Markets as both the Z10 and Q10 would have been sold-in to all the channels globally. The Q5 will have a further significant impact in Emerging Markets.
"Apple continued to hold the stop spot in Canada, he observes, though BlackBerry made gains and should add to that with this quarter’s Q10 release:
The launch of the BlackBerry Z10 in 1Q13 finally reversed Blackberry’s share slide, jumping from 6% in 4Q12 to 13.5% this quarter. For some context, two years ago in 1Q11, BlackBerry had 21.8% share. Even more share gains are expected in 2Q13 with the launch of the QWERTY-keyboard Q10 in Canada. Following the strong iPhone 5 launch, which lead to 44% share in 4Q13, Apple’s share dropped to 40.1% in 1Q13. Samsung held tightly to its number two position despite its share declining slightly to 29.8% from 32.1% in 4Q12."
THis is why bears are morons. Even bbry stayed at the 3% global share, which we of course know they won't with these new phones and best OS, that would mean 27 million bb10 phones sold over the next 4 qtrs. That's almost 7 million per qtr. Yet what do the no brain analyst have them selling? 3 mil or less. What kind of moronic analysis is that! This stock is being played with technical to match the chart with the downfall. It's about to make a large run up. By years end it will be over 50
nice post! only my main concern is stopping the subsciber loss - it appears they may have lost another 15 million according to some accounts I've read in a few articles? They will have no problem with phone sales, probably 3 million in Can & UK alone!
