LONGS WILL ULTIMATELY BENEFIT.
I'm sure you were saying it was over for Apple in 2000.
This is an overreaction, media making it sound like the sky is falling. They will release BBM this weekend to all other platforms, will make whatsapp obsolete, skype as well. They cut their workforce because it isn't 1999 anymore, sorry to hurt people's feelings but now the workforce is where it needs to be, to be profitable, where it should have been for years. Only the beginning, Apple was down and out at one point too, remember that?
Because they're putting all of the cards out on the table, the company in waiting can now pay a lower premium, that is why.
It is good in terms of another company acquiring them. They have to fire their work force because the company in waiting does not want to acquire the work force. The Blackberry brand is taking the hit so the company that acquires them does not.
Think about it, they just released their final phone, the Z30. They're releasing BBM to Samsung over the weekend, and possibly Apple. They just released their earnings report. Why was this all just done one after the other? It's because a buyout is coming, and they're putting everything on the table so it doesn't effect the company that acquires them, in terms of reputation. The Blackberry brand s taking the hit right now, not the company that will acquire them. Either Samsung, Lenovo, or Microsoft will take them over, and they now get to pay a lower premium.
Buyout coming over the weekend, these results had to be released before takeover, im thinking 12 per share. Bbm being released on all phones as well, a precursor to a takeover.
Blackberry should have put all of its effort into the Z30, and cancelled the Z10 and Q10 plans. If they came to the market with the Z30 first, they would of most likely sold more phones. It really is a shame, sometimes I just don't understand this company's decisions.
If it were an American company, the media would treat it very differently.
Hmm, clearly you've never tried the new BB10 OS, just take a seat man. Continue to read your American articles and think you know what you're taliking about. The new OS is clearly different than the old 7 OS, but you wouldn't know that, you're too dumb to realize that Apple has been pumping out the same simplistic OS for the last 7 years. Keep following the crowd, make sure not to ask any questions though, you'll fit right in.
The American media will get any chance they can to bash Blackberry, completely different around the world.
Go back to your herd, sheep. Continue to dumb yourself down like the rest of the IPhone users. Make sure to watch your favorite reality show later, errrrmeerrrrgggawwwdd!!!
Just quit while you're ahead, you sound like an idiot, which is actually pretty normal for an Iphone user.
You got yours because your friend had it, you're a follower. You got it because you saw the media pumping it, you're a follower. The OS sucks, it's for slow people. Actually try the BlackBerry BB10 OS before you knock it. You are a sheep, just as the rest of the people are that possess Apple products, all they do is follow the crowd.
Apple is just beginning it's downfall in the smartphone market. You can't fool the sheep forever by adding a letter on the end of a phone with the same old #$%$. The rest of the world knows what a Z30 is, contrary to popular belief, there is a market outside of your bubble. Go ahead, think for yourself and stop following the crowd, try out the BB10 OS and you'll see how much more superior it actually is.
Clearly it did buddy, before this news just came out. Go back to playing with your POS Apple phone, child.
Just released a new phone, they see a run up, so what do the media apple fanboys do? They release the world is falling news on Blackberry. Losers. The stock will be up tomorrow, and will also see a nice bump on the 21st when they release BBM on Android. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if the media released news on the same day of some dooms day revelation about Blackberry. Pathetic media.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Any chance they get, they'll dump something on the good news of the day, ridiculous.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Usually when a Report comes out, it's true. So in other words, this is happening within the next couple of days, now it's just a matter of how high the shares go.
