    As warned. We got our consolidation. A bit more volatility and then we move up. HOLD your shares, this looks like its getting set for a multi dollar up move.IMO These drops are now buying opportunities, not when you sell out.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Even worse is getting played out just before the real news hits and it gaps up dollars possibly. Of course it is going to swing around BUT trend UP. Only a moron would dare be short this stock at this time.IMO

    If the shorts are stupid enough to try and beat it down now, buy on the pull back. This is not happening within a vacuum of knowledge. Somebody knows something which is going to drive up the price, no matter what the shorts do. The longer they wait, the better. The squeeze will just get worse as the word spreads.

    I agree. Gold has proven to be inversely related to hype from institutions. SELL or get hit with another big price drop.IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The junior mining sector will respond far more sharply to gold drop. We could see this rise again to over $20 IMO

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Pressure been building for this move. Question is, what is behind it. Obviously nobody here knows! No way this volume and move is a fluke however. That you can count on.

    People are so mired in the past, which is why the big money is always made spotting the future. The future is ALL about the Internet of Things, for many of these companies. They either get positioned now, or pay far higher price to enter later, or even worse miss market. Does anybody think they are not ALL looking at being big in this arena? The only question really, who steps up and does the deal for Blackberry. Chance of any major price decline here getting less and less, while big moves up look imminent.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • "BlackBerry could "potentially be a great acquisition," Shah at Counterpoint Research said. BlackBerry has messaging software that could be rolled out to connect a chain of Samsung products, and a software program that manages different devices at once. BlackBerry's QNX automotive software, which enables drivers to make hands-free calls, sports three-dimensional navigation and 3-D gaming for rear seats, is also a draw, he said."
    Forget all the rest, the future says Samsung has to acquire to be a player. They have 63 BILLION CASH. Figure it out!LOL

    Hard to understand

    I want that risk! ALL STOCKS carry risk, every one of them, whether the hottest or coldest, and anyone who tells you differently is lying. So you have to know your risk tolerance, and why you are buying a stock in the first place. Here it is very simple. Some, like myself, think this is undervalued without any news at all, which is why we were owners and buying before all this news surrounding Samsung. Others are short, thinking the stock is overpriced. My analysis, for what it is and was worth. When this was lower by a few dollars, ALL the signs were there for it being oversold.IMO Added to this was a discounting of all potential, especially in the areas least familiar to the average person. Result: PERFECT CONTRARY PLAY: which is the type of investor I am. It does not bother me, all the various views, but nonsense and less than factual babble is irritating at times. Clearly Blackberry has value, because there have been offers to buy the whole company. FACT clearly stated by CEO. Fact: Samsung is involved somehow, some way. Take your pick as to that involvement, but I favor bid for all or part. THUS I AM A BUYER AND CONTINUED HOLDER. Its a value and now additionally a speculation on a deal or deals at far higher prices. Not complicated: if you see those variables and you like the odds, you buy/hold. If not, sell short, stand aside or babble on! LOL So without Samsung you get an emotional reaction of course, unless other deals obvious, and with ANY offer will come major gap UP. Play it as you like.

    I agree with changing name back. Never could see why they left it, as it is a great name: Research In Motion, and now Blackberry IS in motion. $20+ as stated many times, is on the way. Do not get fooled by volatility, or babble from loser shorts. Stay focused on the science and technology, coupled with value and takeover deals in the wings. What not to like. Real growth mapped out clearly.

    Oh my, now it is my writing style. Stay focused my friend on the facts as presented, and the implications of same. As well, consider the risk vs. reward profile here and now. Put simply: risk to shorts of large gap up is significant, while risk to longs is minimal of big drop. Say there is no news for a bit. Risk is stock trails off, but to where exactly? Not to new lows, because the situation now indicates deals possible and even likely. Seems some have already been rejected because they were too low. Too low rejections, matter. Why? Because it shows value perceived for real by whomever made offers. The ONLY question currently appears to be - what percent of company, or what part of company and what is the price for that. We already know prices, as I just said, have been offered, so think, would a suitor be offering more than those offers? Of course they would be, or why bother? Buy these situations: up chance great, downside limited.

    You like many still do not get it. Read the statements carefully. Its legal speak. Deal can happen NOW. Need I explain? If so you are in the wrong place to be risking your money. LOL You really think Reuters and others do not have the low down on this one? Then hold your short, but do not say you were not warned. DEAL IS ON: EOS

  • beststockstoownnow beststockstoownnow Jan 23, 2015 12:29 PM Flag

    FWIW your statement is typical nonsense. You do not know what longs want, you just babble cause it sounds good. The deal or no deal question. Few believe there is not something about to happen. That is why the stock has been rising on volume. Do not forget, smart money bought when this was at way lower price, and some are taking profits. Why not. Mistake that for not thinking a deal probable, very silly. Worse yet shorting on that theory. Now that is just stupid.

    First my friend, it is what THIS CEO said, and I do not think anything will happen, and second I DO think a deal will take place with Samsung. Clear enough? I do not think the company is Canadian, it IS Canadian. Did not say it did not matter, you did. As for following the markets, now that is funny. Have not only followed them, have taken companies public myself. So lets see who gets this right: I say deal or attempt at deal with Samsung, as others may step in and compete. I say SEC will do absolutely nothing, and if they do it will be window dressing and go nowhere. Clear enough? I also by the way think the SEC and equivalent bodies in Canada are basically useless against the games and manipulations that take place in the various markets overseen by them. Can one make money knowing, or believing that? Of course they can. They avoid being deluded, being a sheeple and actually consider what is going on for real and not so they are led around and taken to the cleaners. LOL

    I know exactly what I speak about, because I have dealt with these folks for a long time. You might want to look back at the record of the U.S. and Canada in taking people to task. They make headlines with the likes of Bernie Madoff, for good reason, as meanwhile the vested interests fleece folks continually. Take a look at where the leaders who brought you the debacle a few years ago, and sold billions of worthless paper to unsuspecting buyers, fleecing big time, now work. Oh gee, is it in similar positions or as heads of Universities for example. NO, I stand by my statements. Its a rigged game for the vested interests, with media shows on occasion to justify the SEC and others from every having to properly oversee these markets and games played. You stick to your story, I will stick to mine. Meanwhile: game on here, Blackberry deal will happen, no matter what is said to public. We have to give those institutions time to cover their short position, don't we? roflmao

    Really! If you are in the stock market and do not understand the most basic rule of Wall Street, do NOT play here. What is the rule: Always keep em guessing, and lie till you die. The SEC lives because Wall Street exists and flourishes, for the vested interests. They will do NOTHING in the U.S. or Canada. Remember: the game is rigged for you to LOSE. Be contrary, and win, or a sheeple and lose. Here: its going way higher. The deal was ALWAYS ON, as the leak indicated, and the players lied, yes!, but using legal ease statements. I warned folks to read the statements very carefully, as they actually spoke to a deal in the works, because they did not reject out of hand any deal. That is REALITY Get long this, the price will be higher. Do not say you were not now told. The deal price will be substantially higher than the current price, by the way, and guess what, no matter what they say pre the actual announcement. Get it yet????. EOS

    Funny how these shorts keep telling the longs that they are idiots, when the stock has been going up and ALL information points to a much higher takeover bid or deal coming in the $15+ range. They are so fixated on their outdated valuation models that they are like the proverbial Deer blinded by the headlights syndrome. Face it shorts: get real. DEAL HAPPENING. Price 15+ and it could go FAR higher, but not lower, THE CEO HAS TOLD YOU ALREADY. Now seriously, is that the definition of an idiot or not? The CEO pre tells you his absolute minimum price, and some of you shorts tell him different. Go for it shorts, you are going down and truly are idiotic being short here and now. And previously at far lower price, oh my that is beyond idiotic.

    Many just do not get it YET. But they soon will. Value here IS far greater than the silly critics have said because they are a bunch of sheeples, trend bound fools many of them. The value is in the IP and some other assets, the phone sales of late are not the biggest item. So many are focused on the wrong items they are missing the value play here. The final price may will be your target of $25, but in any case FAR HIGHER than many expect, and it IS going to happen. Samsung and competition just can't let it go once game is on and declared. If you are short, it has to be the absolutely dumbest move available out there. Wh? THIS IS the BEST STOCK TO OWN RIGHT NOW. EOS

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • You should know by now, offers coming. It is not in the price yet. When first deal comes, stock will gap past offer, because others will step up. Blackberry is a once in a decade chance for some to get IP and market, as well as entry into software and the Internet of the Future. Worth way more than $15. But wait and see. Play or miss. This one is that simple right now.

    Babble again, all day, all night about all the completely irrelevant things which at this point with a deal coming have no impact whatsoever on the price. ITS ALL ABOUT THE DEAL NOW. Just read the latest news, the only folks who have gotten fooled are the ones who actually think nothing is going down here, and worse in some cases are actually short. Dream on. Deal on, Blackberry in play. $15+ ISN'T IT OBVIOUS ENOUGH YET????
