Are you serious? The hardware portion of the company can be sold for maybe $1 a share, if anything and BBRY can devolve into a software security service, but that doesn't mean the share price will be the same or go up, it will most likely mean delisting or offering about half the shares in a new spin off and name.
I would get out of the shares.
The integrity of the organization is #$%$, when there are real buyouts or investments, nothing is known, just look at the classy organizations such as Apple, Google, AMZN, TSLA etc. No one has purchase or invested in a company after spreading rumors.
This is the nature of BBRY they are super desperate, the company may survive, but the share price is no longer investment wise.
I was in a rush, no big deal. The point is that most if not all of the retailers in Canada have stock. Time will show you.
When they announce a new CEO, the share price will pop big time, especially if its someone with a platinum following. Its only a matter of hours, or days. I wouldn't play with fire, the share price may pop up with this type of news.
Has anyone even seen it, or read the reviews, its is extremely over priced, and not a good phone, especially given the competitors, this is also the case now in China, and India as the other brands are amazing in China and much cheaper. There may be a market however it is shrinking every day, and will continue to do so, BBRY has gained 0 traction in apps, and their phones suck, nothing works right. These rumors and comments are just hype. The company will dwindle over time, along with its share price to below $5 which is still over priced.
Apple "hope" and Yahoo "hope" is holding up this broken stool, it is also being propped up by the billionaire network who are crying fowl.
Earnings are a mild dissapointment and so are the outlooks, look for a possible breakdown today or overnight and reversal.
They made very limited phones so they can say its sold out, please, its such a gimmick, in a few months BBRY will have to spin off parts of their business. This company is worth under $5.
Rumor has it that a Chinese company is going to buy out a phone company that has some security technology, that rumor alone would make government officials and high profile users run for the hills !
Use your head. LMAO.
For the purposes of integrity BBRY should deny the rumors.
Hes not on your side, he is only after making money for himself. His comments are common sense and are one of the common sense ideas proposed. He just makes it more public, until something goes wrong. Good going Carl, now that you have hyped up the shares, Apple can pay more to buy back shares as the price will discount it after your selfish announcement.
If Steve Jobs were around he would probably entertain the ideas and suggest that it is already one of the many considerations, and ideas. What a pest Carl is, he has NO understanding of how to build a company from the ground up.
LOL, this guy must be like a pest to running companies. When will they make it illegal?
Watch the CNBC link, very well said by Marc Andreesen, guts.
If the Global penetration continues, there should be eventually close to 1 Billion users, as many people will use twitter along with Google, and Bidu, and Bing, not to mention with FB and others. Additionally media driven events, and news will be delivered via twitter, i am sure that is something they will consider very soon, as the technology diversifies, and the cash balance grows. They are in a pivotal monopoly, they just have to keep executing, investing, and the brand will be impossible to stop in a couple of years.
To me, it appears nearly unstoppable right now, there may be some bumps, but 5 years out, this will be a powerhouse with about 1 Billion users, and add revenue, and other revenues not even considered yet, thus i can easily see net profit at that time surpassing that revenue mark, as ad dollars for major events like superbowel, olympics, soccer, hockey, news stories, and more are capitalized on.
That is why even $250 a share by 2018 is acceptable. That is why a measly $55 a share is nothing in the bigger picture.
The upside is not too high any longer given the back drop. Safer to bet on what is working.
You can't just make up the rules as you go along and change the rules for lock up period even if the reasons are noble or ethical, it makes no sense, shareholders will feel cheated, and hence by the time the shares are sold to raise the little money, the cost to the market cap could be 10 fold higher.
This is simply illegal behavior.
AMD execution is MBA textbook style, way outdated, we need radical thinkers, innovation, engineers, and better people running this company at the top.
They need to evaluate and give more to shareholders.
This equity price is undervalued significantly. Its is a great medium and long term investment in my opinion and at these prices, it is very inexpensive given the major changes and approval, including the clinical pipeline. Lets hope management is serious and not just here for the short term. I think managements needs to do a better job marketing, and gain further credibility in the finance community and retail community, including distribution. This takes time, weeks, and a few months. But this would eventually grow.
GPRO consolidated today, and proved that it won't sink. These events will be media and earnings driven, in the absence of that the share price should keep moving up.
I believe 4 out of 5 Fridays, the share has closed higher by the end of the day on Fridays.
Therefore since it is not triple witching hour, tomorrow it may break $73 at one point.
Oh i forgot to mention, these stock moves of $5 up or down, or even $20 up or down are meaningless, just like when apple shares went up and down from $8 to 25 a few years ago, or when Google was $150 a share up and down, and FB at $20 to $50, and TSLA at $25, and NFLX at $80, and CSCO before that, and so on and so on..... think years, not weeks. This is NOTHING, and $100 is nothing in the longer term outlook 5 years. Todays $2 move, is a joke, meaningless.
Yes, it is still slightly early for many of the technologies and ideas to develop, but only a matter of time, twitter is so far ahead now, and will only put more space between them and any competitors in the next 2 years. Also it is international, so we have an amazing capitalization opportunity of their prime directive, not to mention what other spin offs and ideas will develop in the coming years. I am not worried, infact as long as the stock market holds, we should see twitter by 2020 a $1000 stock.
They just secured a nearly $6 B sale ! largest in 30 years ! and several more in the past quarter, there is only upside as the cold war and world wars start in the coming quarters.
I don't see any down side risk really at this stage, things have rapidly improved for the order sheet at GD, and i can see a stock split in the coming year or so, and easily a double of market share in less than 12 months.
My guess is that if the DOW holds these levels, then GD share price should be above $150 by late FALL 2014, probably breaking $200 in 2 quarters if further giant sales occur in coming weeks.
