Blackberry still holds 3 of the top ten popular phones. If BBRY wanted to they could get 3-4 billion just for there patents...PERIOD!!! Blackberry will come out with a new phone soon that will rival the IPhone S models and with there tighter security features, its off to the races again!!!
P.S Not sure what you meant by the projecting conspiracies? If you are referring to the 85 billion a month sprinkled into the market that I stated a valid conspiracy then bingo. Its not a conspiracy, its a FACT!!! If you do not think that is a valid argument, just speak to any "REAL" economist.
Saying TVIX is going to 14 was ridicules without a reason. I have made some ridicules statements, but there was some guts to back it up, or in most cases a little humor. If you would have said $1.14 that would have been more believable. When I have put stuff out there I have had a reason, what was yours or did 14 just jump in your head? Actually I only trade this trash pile and only a couple of times in the last 6 months. You were technically right, TVIX should be 14 Unfortunately its a corrupt game, and I have a tendency to believe that it will probably go to zero, before the real economy is realized. If the VIX was a real indicator of fear and worry we would be way past 14.
Research reports can be a waste of money. There is more fraud from people you should be able to trust in this market then you can shake a stick at. If you believe these analysts you may end up on skid row.
I cannot tell you how many times Schwab has upgraded a stock near earnings and it drop like a rock. I do not know who appears to do it more CS or Motley.
Don't get too excited, CS does this all the time near earnings and they make money shorting too. Reuter's downgraded PES to Hold. I cannot see a reason why, but since when do they need a reason. If earnings was going to be good, wouldn't the stock be going up? I think somebody just bought a large short position ahead of earnings. I hope not...right?
If you want to go private, what is a sure fire way to do it. First, you can continue without a real business plan so investors would run for the hills. Something tells me that Blackberry wants to be private again and they know they can do it by not promoting the company properly and release documents to the public and investors that there is no real developed business plan.
BBRY would have all the operational cash they would ever need to catch up with AAPL and MSFT, and GOOGLE if they just sold a portion of there patents. If so, why don't they. In the past I have seen an estimated patents worth 4 billion. Sounds high, but how do you figure the real total???
14 what? 14 peso's? This thing is still losing NAV even with a strengthening VIX. As long as there is an 85 billion a month, this thing will continue to zero...period!
TVIX is trading at a 43 cent premium to NAV, yet it always seems to fluctuate near or below par during many trading sessions. I think it’s a way to promote this piece of garbage. How this ETN continues to lose NAV even on VIX strengthening is a mystery to me. I see TVIX futures market numbers, but I see no logic in its perceived posted value. The futures market seems to be a roulette wheel guided by the FED’s never ending easy money, so a premium in any stock or ETN means absolutely nothing to me, especially if you are shorting this market. This fund is a trap for many including myself. I only trade it now, and currently I own zero shares, but may pick-up some today on a dip.
Personal analysis. 85 billion not stopping anytime soon, so what going to happen in my opinion is this. You make a little on down days (sometimes), and lose the majority of NAV on market up days. That's a recipe for eventual zero. I climb in short near Christmas and 50% short (stocks, since these ETN's are a scam) close to the next kick the can down the road calamity that will happen in January. Not sure if we will have hyper-inflation, or deflation yet when things unravel, so I will limit my Gold and Silver allowance to 20%
Would make good short squeeze money!!! They really do not need the cash anyway. Everyone else has debt and no one appreciated that BBRY had none. Why not get some convertibles, and have a short squeeze party!!!
Or the knowledge of how to be a legal criminal...right? This only moves down. Up days are for sucker days. There is no premium anymore and the volatility is up. If this is down against the premium to NAV I can understand, but if it trades below NAV the books need to be audited. I think in this case a lawyer is the next stop.
How can TVIX lose money if it is buying futures based on current market volatility. Do they just guess at a number to put in the futures so people lose for sure. Isn't it perceived and based on future numbers and trading activity. Ohhh...I keep forgetting about the 85 billion, which makes TVIX a "LOCK"
