"A couple years ago (before this stock began to tank for no logical reason)..."
No logical reason?
Not being able to sell you products is no logical reason for the stock to tank?
Ah, Rimmbeciles whatever would we do without them?
"He gets relative little until he does prove himself."
$1,000,000 for showing up each day and $2,000,000 for performance goals, which you can be sure will be so low that even Silly & Lazy could met them is little?
And this from the corpse of a company that can't manage to sell itself for peanuts according to the Rimmbecile Chant (TM)?
"Name one bankruptcy of a public company in history that gave common shareholders anything. "
Penn-Central Railroad. The common holders got a stock issue that was a type of warrant. It was issued at $5 value I believe on a one to one basis with the common. At the end of 20 years or when the passenger track that was Penn-Central was sold the shares would be paid off at a sum of $20. That track was Conrail & Congress eventually about seven years later was forced by arbitration to pay a sum that redeemed the shares at full $20 value.
I mention this because lighting DOES occasionally strike in the market.
Note also that these shares were traded during their seven year life span on the NYSE between $ and $5, so it is arguable whether ANY of the original Penn-Central shareholder saw the jump to $20 when it was redeemed.
Note also that Penn-Central traded as high as $75 a share two years before the Puckey hit the fan, so PC bag holders above $20 still lost opportunity AND money even if they held onto the special shares to the not-so-bitter end.
Essentially, you are correct, the common shareholders get shafted in ALMOST every case.
Rimmbecilles will no doubt seize on this outlier to justify their bag holding.
"With all due respect, I must ask, but are you stupid?"
Your ID is new on this board, but I have to ask.
How can you have been reading the Rimmbecile posts and ask if any of the Rimmbeciles are stupid?
hire a guy to walk the streets calling out "bring out you dead, bring out your dead," the way they did in Europe during the Black Death?
Black Berry is close enough to Black Death in more ways than one.
In fact in device buyers' minds Black Berry EQUALs Black Death.
"So, it's good news!"
For a Rimmbecile bag holder any news that's not bankruptcy is good news.
"On top of the rewards of working for a company that paid us well, I have made only a few equity investments, each lucrative. I was a Ford buyer at the bottom when the rest of the world left them for dead. (The same hue and cry as BBRY gets now) My return there was 1,200%. I retired at a young age (52) No joke.
"For the record, I bought BBRY (RIMM then) last year for $7.50 on the way down and $6.80 on the way up. I’m not crushed here, by no means. I believe in the products and trust that it will work out."
How is it that all the Rimmbecile bag holders were super successful in their careers and ALL of them bought BBRY at prices that are either now profitable or at best have only a small loss?
I thought one of the Rimmbecile Chants (TM) was that for every seller there was a buyer. Where are all the Rimmbecile buyers that paid $140, 130, 120, 110, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50 ,40, 30, 20, 10? Living incognito in Indonesdia on the site of one of the 4,000 stores the Rimmbeciles believed BBRY was going dominate the Indonesian market with perhaps?
Or more likely the Rimmbecile bag holders, like you, are lying thriugh their teeth in shamer at bieng so utterly stupid?
"It doesn't get any stupider than that, folks!"
Yeah, it does. This Rimmbecile moron actually thinks the Devil has something to do with this or anything else.
Using the Devil as a new scapegoat for for your own Rimmbecility---a new low in Rimmbecellia!
"Keep in mind that Blackberry did have a history of successfully reinventing itself and now it still has at least time to do so. "
When did this "reinventing" take place?
Its been run by dorks since 2008 & until proven otherwise will still be run by dorks.
Does the name "Chain Saw" Al Dunlap ring any bells out there in Rimmbecillia?
"There are tons of class action lawsuits going, good luck with that."
Yeah, and all they'll do is make some lawyers rich.
Unlike the Rimmbecile baggies.
"Mr. Chen is as top notch as it gets."
Seems I've heard this song before?
Where was it?
Oh yes, when PALM hired the ex Apple guy to run its "resurgent" mobile device business that produced an iPhone killer. That worked out as well as this gun-for-hire is going to.
You can try but you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
"be greedy when other are fearful!
only way to make good money."
Not when you combine greed with Rimmbecile stupid.
"BBRY's New Strategy: MORE PHONES"
Makes PERFECT Rimmbecillian sense.
Lose money on each phone.
Write down inventory.
Sell the inventory for PURE profit----since you wrote it down.
Do it in volume.
Great Success. Just look at BBRY's progress from 2008 to today.
"I have lost almost $1M here to date so I will say what I want."
Boy you are Dumber than the dumbest Rimmbecile I've ever heard of. Assuming of course that you're not lying.
"once I sell this thing:
I will NEVER own another stock as long as I live. Market is too corrupt."
Got nothing to do with corruption.
Got to do with your own stupidity.
Got to do with your stock selection. (See above.)
