For your information, I hold no position in BBRY, although I own a Bold. If the stock retraces due to today's downgrade, I may go long for a trade.

Have you ever heard of cyber bullying. Posting actual news is fine, but cyber bullying is bad, very bad. Perhaps I should report you for cyber bullying.
from neutral to underperform.
That was then, this is now. I'm long Apple, but it can't be denied that the company is sleeping in its laurels. They insisted that the larger screen demand was minimal; ok, what does TC say now? I was at T-Mobile this week and iPhone 5 is a distant second to the S4. The momentum is on the other side now. Doing catch up when you were on front is a difficult task.
I gave a thumbs up to your post, but let me tell you, I have my doubts about sales in Europe. I was in Spain this week and visited 3 phone Kiosks at the train station. The Vodafone guy who appeared to know his stuff, told me he has not sold one Z-10. That is bad, very bad. The other two kiosks were not fond of the BB either. Samsung rules there.
Thank you for your comment. It was helpful. Actually, the T-Mobile employee had an HTC that was given to him. It appears it was a promo, I don't know. Anyways, I may give a try to the Q (I still like the keyboard) when it arrives. My wife has an iPhone and the kids two S-3. I think I will give a try to the Q.
The problem is not institutional ownership, but sales of phone. Today I went to T-Mobile to see if they got the Q-10. While talking to the sales rep, whom I know, he told me that the Z-10 is not selling well at all. Frist choice by far is the S4 and then the iPhone 5 a distant second. BB is just hated. He admited that the equipment is very good, but people just hate the name. My son told me that if the BB was and iPhone it would sell like crazy. Anyways, the feedback was so bad that I decided not to upgrade (I own a Bold) yet for fear that the phone would be discontinued. This is crazy.
It was just out when the post was made on April 4. Read the date of the post. Just because someone replied today it doesn't mean that the date of the original post was changed.
For the first time, Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone operating system has surpassed BlackBerry, says IDC. The firm has released its quarterly analysis on the smartphone market, indicating that during the first quarter, Windows devices comprised 3.2 percent of all smartphones shipped with BlackBerry devices accounting for 2.9 percent of the market. That figure marks almost the exact opposite from the results in the prior quarter, when Microsoft’s OS then comprised 2.6 percent to BlackBerry’s 3.2.
No, now they have 2,400,000 shares. Do you think you can calculate how many shares they added to arrive at 2.4 after adding 83.5 percent?
