The politics start now... Articles will be published by people likely to be 'paid' to devalue and dog Blackberry so that retail investors will bail on their shares and the big investors will capitalize by picking up your 'cheap' shares.
This will also allow the buyer of BBRY who will be in on this game to make a bid that appears to have a 'bigger' gap in stock price than it would have had this manipulation not occurred.
If you want to play Wall Street's game, you have to be smart and know why something is happening. The facts undisputed and they can be summed up in that BBRY is selling at or near book value. There's no denying it. The ups and downs in the stock price will occur due to manipulation. Regardless, if you hold on tight onto your shares and load up when you see more attractive pricing, you will fare better than others who drop their shares due to fear of these 'articles'.
Stick to the facts and be a man. This is Wall Street...not 'Weeny Street'. I think we will at least see $17/share before this game is 'really' over. Then again, don't go by what I say...stick only to the facts. Remember, on Wall Street, you only stick to facts...not to hearsay.
It was difficult to hold today with bad news coming for everywhere. But then I asked myself, do I sell or hold for 2 months or so.......... I cannot see any other stocks to buy in this environment so why no hold it, next week it could be over $12 again in a flash just like this week. No brainier - hold
