I agree. I locked in the profit today. We wait till it drops below $75 before buying back. No reason to get greedy and hold on...I see a higher probably of TSLA sliding back down than hit another high. But who knows...any news can make this stock go up big or down big. So ka-ching for me today. Good luck!
Here is how you can find out if BBRY is worth investing. Go to Best Buy and ask them how well does Samsung S4 and Z10 sell....i bet for every 10 S4 sold, one Z10 may get sold...do i hear air leaking as time goes on?
You can put most popular mobile OS for free by using Android platforms. So it's a pipe dream if you think there is a company wanting to pay a license fee to use BBRY patents.
If BBRY products was so hot, even Chinese company will try to copy it...but they rather copy iPhone and Sasmung phones....that's where the money is...BlackBerry buyers are shrinking...just compare # of subscriber from 2 years to now....there are less people using BBRY products than 2 years ago...i wonder why...
Let's be real...everyone wants a phone that can access Google Play or Apple Store. The main reason I don't dream about BBRY products is because BBRY doesn't have enough apps to compete with iPhone or Android smartphones. Adding a keyboard doesn't change the fact that there are not enough apps to compete with the the big 2. This time you can't plug holes fast enough....Samsung S4 is hot and Q10 is not. Very simple to figure out.
Apple has lots of cash and not using to it's advantage. With the extra cash, it would make sense to monopolize TD-LTE network in US. Apple can make Sprint the exclusive provider of TD-LTE (at least 6 to 10X times faster than regular LTE currently being used AT&T and Verizon). To help iPhone sell better, Apple will make iPhone the only exclusive device being able to access TD-LTE network. Buy buying Sprint and Clearwire, Apple can prevent Android devices being able to access TD-LTE network without paying a fee to roam on TD-LTE network. To prevent Apple's current profit margin being affected by Sprint's purchase. Apple can spin-off Sprint into a subsidiary company to have a separate balance sheet. Also, can make Apple shareholders very happy by giving them some shares of Sprint during the spin-off.
Now only if Tim Cook can think beyond his sandbox....hopefully Apple Board will try to be creative beside watching Apple go into a slump.
You buy when it's goes on sale and keep on accumulating till you need the money. QCOM is the best long-term technology stock to hold. Why? Regardless of Android or Apple smartphone platform, they all need QCOM chips. Any smartphone that is using 3G and 4G will need to pay loyalty fee to QCOM...so smartphone market grows...so will QCOM. Just nibble as it goes on sale...it will go back up when QCOM makes announcements.
Bullet proof? ...BBRY doesn't have enough money to battle with AAPL and Samsung. AAPL and Samsung are going to continue attack BBRY until BK. Sad but that's the corporate world....money is power and BBRY don't don't have to play with the big boys nor they have the potential to make money in the near future. For every Z10 that is sold, BBRY is losing money on the hardware. So expect BB's next earning to show more net loss. BBRY will run out of money by 2015 and will file BK.
So you are saying Samsung created KNOX to compete with Apple? Wrap KNOX around your little brain and think again. Samsung is going severely affect Z10 also.
Z10 hype has dissipated. But the good news is that Z10 will make a nice paper weight :-)
That's right...I forgot BBRY is in a peewee league. Excuse me for comparing BB Z10 in a higher standard as the top two sellers....S3 and iPhone 5. I wonder if BB even sells as many phone as Motorola and HTC....maybe BB10 should be considered below them too.
BBRY has the same problem AAPL has....that problem is called Samsung. Samsung S4 will be announced next week and BBRY's Z10 will be no longer considered a good product. AAPL has money to fight off Samsung's competition. But BBRY is not so deep in the pocket...BBRY will be very lucky to survive few more years unless they can come out with a device that is innovative to compared to Apple and Android products. Making something similar to Apple and Samsung products are not going to help BBRY. S4 will be known as iPhone and Z10 killer.
Galaxy S4 will be officially announced on March 15. My wife has Note 2...5.5 inch....very nice...so I am looking forward to upgrading my S3 to S4...bigger screen is a bonus.
Try Pandora, Facebook, etc...better yet try Yahoo...opps...Yahoo got rid of their BB apps...lol.
Sounds like you are hoping for a miracle recovery...keep hoping...there may be one more bounce left before BBRY slides to BK in 5 years.
