    Bbry has the ability to blow through 12 in a blink. Next ER will see this stock run and add clarity to the upside potential. As crazy as it sounds, Blackberry I believe will hit 50 in the next two years if they execute their current strategy. A software play with limited competition in niche markets is a completely different arena for Blackberry but they're finally moving in the direction they should have moved 5 - 10 years ago. Better late than never! Apple, Samsung etc can sell all the handsets they want and slit each others throats until there's no margin whatsoever in that business. Blackberry will play in that arena but it will represent 5 - 10% of their revenue two years from now. Applications which leverage their platform will drive this company to valuations it's possibly never attained before, realizing that's a huge MC for a company almost everyone left for dead last year. As I've said before on this board, the worm has turned and for those on the side lines, it's still not too late to hop on board. Stock of a lifetime and turnaround story of a lifetime. If you don't see what's happening here, your blind. There will be pullbacks along the way but this stock is headed significantly higher over the short term.

    Great post by speculative investor, intelligent, thoughtful and to the point.....kudos!

    For those who didn't listen, I'm sure you wished you had! Wait and see what our beloved Blackberry has in store. For those who are holding, you have no idea what you have with this stock but in due time it will become more and more clear. If Chen does this right bbry could be the stock of a lifetime. The potential here is limitless and although there are many who say it will never see the light of day again we'll see who is right and whose wrong. A great platform with complete security in this world today has unlimited potential. It just took the right leadership to unleash that potential and we're just now seeing the recognition of this by customers and the financial markets. This is going to be a great ride and the next ER will be a thing of beauty. I would suspect Chen has a few more surprises and announcements before we even get there but in my opinion if you've held over the last few years now is the time to hold tight and add to to your position. Bbry is a rocket ship sitting on the launch pad!

    Can someone on market pulse PLEASE tell day trader 1 to take a hike. I guess anyone can suggest shorting every single day and eventually one day the stock will trend down. How can you be so wrong about a pick and keep beating your chest about the right trade. Guy is as obnoxious as they come and as oblivious to what is happening with Bbry as anyone can be. It's getting real old! Time for this guy to frequent another site!

  • Would like to wish everyone a very Happy and Safe 4th! Hope everyone has a chance to spend some quality time with family and friends, the things that truly matter most in life! Good food, cold beverages, good friends and family....what could be better! Best to all!

    I've been a long for about a year and a half. Had concerns about TH but thought the company was on the right track. Didn't materialize and that's why TH is no longer at the helm. Check my posts and you'll see I've been saying "The worn has turned" since around the time a few months ago when the stock was trading in the $7 range. Based on where it is today, that's about a 40% return. Is there something wrong with that? I never before that used that phrase so not sure were you're getting your facts from. Either way, as I said wait until the end of the year and let's see who is more right, me or shorts. Momentum is building and Chen has done an incredible job with this company in a very short period of time. We finally have someone who is looking to leverage the software as opposed to insisting on selling handsets. The future in my opinion has never looked more promising for Blackberry than it does now. Place your bets. By the way, on a net basis my holdings in Blackberry are net plus and in the last few months I've added multiple six figures to my net worth because of the efforts of Mr. Chen. How's your portfolio doing?

  • I'm sure this will get some comments from the peanut gallery but mark this post and we can see who was right and who was wrong at year end. This stock is positioned to explode upward. Chen has done a masterful job in a very short period of time to stop the bleeding, change the management team, fine tune the go forward strategy, calm Wall Street down, reduce the short interest level and start addressing the revenue line. He is VERY confident CEO and the next two quarters / remainder of this calendar year will be full of positive announcements. Bbry is an easy double from here and imo will go far beyond that mark. Naysayers will disagree and point to historical performance but this is not the same company. Chen is making exactly the right moves and longs will be handsomely rewarded. Don't care about day to day noise, those who hold will be imo very glad they did and will wish they had added to their positions when they had a chance. Opportunity of a lifetime staring you in the face, don't let anyone else on this board make you think otherwise. Great platform, great strategy and a team which can and has executed. Upward we go!

    Action so far resembles Friday. High volume out of the gates but can't make up it's mind. Up initially and then down and looking like it might give some back before exploding to the upside to the 9.80 range. The fight at 10 is between shorts and the buyers but with over 11 million shares traded so far this definitely has legs and wants to run. Hope for a close in the 10.45 to 10.50 range......we'll see. Don't see this dropping just yet with the volume we're seeing today.

    If you are long Blackberry you are in very good hands. The change JC has made in a very short period of time is astonishing. To change the P&L as drastically as he has and the sentiments of the street towards a company which was being tar and feathered every day is a miracle. Sit back and enjoy this ride, it will et better every single quarter they report. Will be interesting to see the next short interest level. I would expect it to come way down after the ER which means we will have to wait until mid July to know the numbers but with the recent run up who knows maybe more shorts will be jumping on board. Either way, I've never day traded a stock so as long as Blackberry is headed to where I think it is that's all that matters. That last line from JC in his Bloomberg interview is worth the price of admission, "If someone offers me $100 / share, I'd probably return his call!" This man is exploding with confidence. At the same time, on a relative basis it's amazing just how lame TH was. Not saying he's not a talented guy, just not an astute businessman to be a CEO especially in a company as troubled as Blackberry was at the time. Good times ahead for sure! And I think we'll continue to see surprise announcements regarding continued partnership arrangements, product offerings, strategic acquisitions etc. as we proceed through this fiscal year. One of these announcements is going to blow the doors off this stock......would be very careful at this time being short....almost as careful as longs have had to be for the last four years! GLTA!!!!!

    Interested in all the posts about yesterday and today's price action and whether to sell, will it hit $10, do I buy etc. etc. If you believe in what Blackberry is doing, this is JUST the beginning and all those questions are irrelevant. Bbry has a great platform, best as far as security is concerned, and making all the right moves on how to leverage the platform across different verticals. It all comes down to utilization and using the unlimited capacity they have. Hardware / phone sales are a critical factor short term but the future is all about software driven matters, connectivity, security, IOT, as well as continuing to dominate the auto industry with QNX. Chen is completely focused on increasing the user base of Blackberry's infrastructure which will drive this company in my opinion to valuations it's never seen before. I know back in their heyday Blackberry had an incredible MC but if JC continues to make the right partnership deals, I believe this company can attain a similar market cap going forward with the possibility of blowing it away. There is no limit to how quickly and how much this company can grow with the right leadership which we now have. The beauty of all this is it's a software play. You don't need excessive amounts of capital once you have the system developed, it's now how you market it and connect to the rest of the world. Partnering with other businesses and platforms is what it's all about. Healthcare investment, Foxconn venture, Amazon deal, these are all building users and transactions which will translate into sustainable revenue lines all with probably 90% contribution to the bottom line. For those worried about $10, $12, $12.50 a share, you're missing the point. Bbry has been through the ringer and has miraculously survived the TH era. Thanks God the deal to privatize the business fell through. This is going to be an amazing ride and it's just started. No limit to how great this can be imo! GLTA longs!
