Statcounter's latest figures show BBRY outselling all smartphones & tablets by a factor of 10. And we all know statcounter is 100% accurate! So BBRY should be the leading phone & tablet vendor by the end of 2015 at the latest.
You heard it here first----many times.
You gotta love dogpoo's reasoning & factual arguments, they are----well dogpoo at its best.
"Lock to see sub $36 before Cristmas"
OK with me. I was a KMP holder & my present 550 shares of KMI originally cost me LESS than the cash I received in the merger.
"Keep up to pace ... short 9300 KMI @ $41.74"
Forgive me because I really hate to call a prevaricator a LIAR but... In the slim possibility that you are not stretching the truth as to number of shares/price short, let us all know how the cost of the KMI dividend you'll be paying feels. Yeah I know, if the dividend payment comes along or the price of KMI tops $41.74 you'll have miraculuosly covered the KMI at a few pennies above the low to that point.
"It's Simply Good Fortune For Blackberry And Indicates Nothing Is Wrong With Their Products."
Having to pay carriers to use your products indicates nothing is wrong with your products? Where does this "indication" hold true?
Oh that's right, in the MENSA kingdom of Rimmbecillia.
"an ignorant post.... as KMI has never traded in the teens so I would love to know how a long has a basis in the teens...."
Another illustration of the BS of dogpoo. KMP split TWICE in the years from 1997 to 2014. Anyone who bought before 2001 (2nd split) has a cost of LESS than $20. I bought in 2000 @ $50 so I caught the 2nd split. In addition, dogpoo apparently hasn't ever heard of MLP ROC which REDUCES the holders original cost---its the deferred taxable income, which became taxable on the reorganization, that some MORONS are complaining about having to pay in the 2014 tax year---each time it occurs. All in all I have a cost in the teens because of these two factors.
Dogpoo, who fancies himself Mr Wall Street, is so ignorant of MLP organization that he is unaware of either of these two factors that he "I would love to know how a long has a basis in the teens...."
Well NOW you know nitwit.
"Tell me genius... how did you spin your own words into KMPs basis when you clearly said KMI..."
As usual, dogpoo, your failure to comprehend what you read is nothing short of amazing. First: I DIDN'T post the quote you attribute to me. Second: What you paid for your shares when it was KMP remains your basis in KMI. You DIDN'T pay additional money at the time of the KMP/KMI merger, so the shares of KMI you received, LESS the cash you received in the merger, divided into the money you originally paid for KMP is your ACTUAL cost basis. Or did you, out of the goodness of your heart or weakness of your mind send extra money to Rich Kinder to keep him off the Dole?
"Yes, I have 15000 shares and we are down .50 cents.......that's a $7500 loss..."
Did you happen to notice the market's still open & KMI is still trading?
" I'm not sure what their plan is or history is, but don't be disappointed if its just a 3-4 cent bump this quarter."
Their history is: that the $2.00 figure is given at the start of the year and is stated 1) As an AT LEAST figure, 2) Is the TOTAL of the year's 4 quarters NOT the ending run rate of 4 EQUAL quarters, 3) Does NOT take into consideration any acquisitions or organic projects that may happen in the next year. You can see this in that the present dividend of $1.76 is already at the limit for this year and that the Feb dividend is for the last quarter of 2014.
So to guess at the 2015 dividends, .46, . 49. 51, & .55 for a total of $2.01, but a 4 quarter run rate of .55X4 or 2.20 WITHOUT REMEMBER giving any extra due to aquisitions/organic expansion. I think the 1st dividend of .46 or only .02 higher than at present is because the merger only occured with 1 month left in the year so its benefits likely are minimal.
rears its ugly head again.
And curiously Rimmbeciles get burned AGAIN.
Barnum was right, there IS a sucker born every minute and most of them are citizens of Rimmbecillia.
Rimmbeciles are complaining that "the market is rigged"----against them and their BBRY baby I presume----because THEY swallowed, hook, line, & sinker, the latest BBRY rumor.
Now for four YEARS Rimmbecilles have proclaimed that a white knight---in this case a yellow knight----would race to their rescue one day and save them from their folly of buying BBRY in the face of falling EVERYTHING FINANCIAL in BBRYs earnings reports. Many times their have been rumors similar to yesterday, with the EXCAT same result---SOAR then SPLAT.
So what do Rimmbeciles do at the circulation of the latest rumor? Step back with a critical eye? No, they wouldn't be true subjects of King Freddy I of Rimmbecilia if they did something investor intelligent. Instead, they spent yesterday throwing good money after bad & chorusing like seven year olds, "Nah Nah we told you so, this is just the opening bid in a final $400 BBRY buy out because QNX can cure Cancer."
Then when the "bid" is shown to be King Freddy I of Rimmbecilia's wet dream, what does the Rimmbecvile populace do? They whine & cry "Wall Street's is rigged" of course, what other intelligent thing would a citizen in good standing of Rimmbecillia do?
Slapstick comedy like this couldn't be scripted. No Fantasy/Sci Fi publisher would accept this as a novel plot! But long term readers of this mb can't be very surprised. As Yogi Berra would say, "Deja Vu all over again."
"The Fed bubble seems to have spawned the worst excesses of the Guilded Age and will likely similarly spawn a crash."
Hate to rain on your parade, but the "Gilded Age" was the decade of the 1890's, NOT the late 1920s. Your major grasp of history certainly explains your inviting acumen and investment in BBRY
"#1 - I'm sure you looked that up."
No, I'm a history buff and know off hand 1,000s of totally useless (but interesting) history facts
#2 - so I got the name wrong of that particular time period, it was still a gilded age if perhaps not capitalized.
You didn't say "Gilded Age" you said "Guilded Age", regardless of your misspelling The Gilded Age in US history is a PARTICULAR time period.
#3 - doesn't make any less true what I stated.
Yeah it does, errors are errors & usually show an inability of the writer to grasp simple ideas and place them in historical perspective. From a Rimmbecile I'd expect no less. By the way, it wasn't legal then as now, in fact or in theory.
#4 - if you're such a pro, why don't you tell us whether you are short BBRY and at what price? Or are you too cowardly like many others here?
I'm not short BBRY, never have been. I just like the hilarious comedy on this board from the "Rimmbecile crew." Over four years many IDs have been changed to protect the guilty, but the stupidity reigns supreme throughout. In general, I don't short ANY stocks. If tempted I would use Put Options, but either shorts or Put Options are not my cup of tea---laughter however is.
"Longs who unfortunately bought yesterday can at least wait it out since fundamentals are improving and the stock's upward technical trajectory hasn't changed, based on the weekly chart (it made yet another higher low yesterday)."
If I had a nickel for every time this idiot statement has been made on this mg, I'd have the net worth of Warren Buffet.
"What...two people on a message board? "
Your counting skills rival your investing skills. Or is it a case of not being able to count higher than two?
".... following the masses can be dangerous. there are a lot of lemmings in our society who tend to believe everything they hear from others and from the tainted media."
A Rimmbecile is berating others for the sentiment in his quote? Boy pot meet kettle. Unfortunately for pot, kettle has profited mightily from $140+ to $6+ since 2008.
"you guys are a shame. 12$ calls next friday are 6 cents. There is tremendous upside potiental if a deal is done over the weekend which usually they are. whats risking 300 bucks for 25 calls when the potiental is it can turn into 3000-5000? Bunch of #$%$"
You nitwit, a person could blow $300 INFINITELY & never see a return for their money. Boy o boy would a commission w*h*o*r*e, aka a stock broker or financial advisor LOVE your account!
