I also agree with her. This can be another Netflix with a small squeeze or push. I said it before and I will say it again for the idiots on here and for the jackasses that think think they know anything including the #$%$ analysts who called Apple to be $1000 a share. DO NOT SHORT A COMPANY IN A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WHERE THINGS CAN TURN ON A DIME. WHAT IS HOT TODAY IS OUT TOMORROW AND VICE VERSA. BLACKBERRY IS STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM AND ONLY ONE PLACE TO GO WITH A NEW PRODUCT GETTING MANY GOOD POSITIVE COMMENTS ON ITS TECHNOLOGY AND PRODUCTS. THEY HAVE THE NUMBER SECURITY AND EXCRYPTION ON ANY SMARTPHONE OR NETWORK OPERATING SYSTEM PERIOD. THE PHONE NOW HAS THE FASTEST WEB BROWSER, IT ALWAYS HAD THE NUMBER 1 EMAIL APPLICATION WHERE YOU DONT NEED TO PURCHASE A STUPID CHILDISH THIRD PARTY APPLICATION TO ATTACH ANY FILE TO AN EMAIL AS YOU DO WITH THE IPHONE.
SO WHAT ARE THE IDIOTS WHO WANT TO SHORT SMOKING. YOU ARE PLAYING WITH FIRE WHULE YOU HAVE GASOLINE IN YOUR HAND. YOUR GOING TO GO UP IN FLAMES SO COVER NOW.
This is just a short excerpt, but it is so true in regards to how anyone could be that stupid and that much of a jackass to try and take the risk to short such a stock
the type of company that makes a great short is one in a market that is in secular decline, has a ton of debt, and is bleeding cash. None of those characteristics relate at all to BlackBerry. You simply have a company that was riding the gravy train for far too long and was admittedly slow to react to the competitive forces in iOS and Android rising up around it. Even while completely getting outgunned by the competition BlackBerry continued to grow its subscriber base and amassed a balance sheet that has now given it the flexibility to buy time and reinvent itself. With that being said I have a 3-part thesis really meant to point out why I think shorting this company is an unnecessary risk.
This iPhone makes me sick. Only reason I got it to begin with was that it was better for cutting and pasting and for the Internet. But now that the Z10 is here I just want to get rid of it as this phone does not work. The email on the iPhone works like all the stupid useless apps Which means that it's made for a child. Anyone who decides to use this phone over the BlackBerry is only doing it because of ignorance and stupidity as well as the fact that they just loaf and dream and breath Apple regardless if something is better
t is time to start facing some hard reality for Nokia for number 3. In my entire life, I have seen only one Nokia phone with WP8. It was a friend of mine who is an upper level executive with Microsoft. We have dinner on occasion and let me say that MS's mood has darken considerably over the last 6 months. It is pretty clear WP8 has failed make the inroads they expected. The problem stems from a lack of product differentiation and their inability to define the demographic to which their product is being sold. The knockon effects that were supposed to occur with the surface tablets hasn't materialized.
I appreciate that MS and by default Nokia are doing their best but why would someone consider buying their product. I can't think of one thing. That is the problem one runs into when your computer/design principals are identical to Apple and Android. There is simply no way to get around it. Contrast MS approach to that of BB. BB has said from the beginning that their product is designed for the hyperconnected. A bit of a buzz word but they know their market and the people they want to sell to. They bought QNX and designed their new OS based on a microkernal design. Exceeding powerful, power efficient, stable and inherently flexible. They then created a UI that was unique with concepts such as flow, peak, hub, balance. These are state-of-the-art and trend setting. It is pretty clear that Samsung thinks so which is why they are bent on incorporating several of these key features into their phones. And then there is the future where BB's microkernal design has the ability to incorporate M2M applications.
I will be blunt in my assessment for MS. They do not have a compelling footprint in the mobile space and this is problematic. Mobile applications are the growth industry and it is transforming computing at all levels. Just look at the windows platform for desktop computers. Five years ago, I would have laughed at the idea that there would ever be a competitor.
I will say it again for the layman on here., if Goldman Sachs and Peter Misek at Jeffries and other very notable analysts have said the stock is up by up to 20 bucks or higher, then don't be stupid and #$%$ and cover you shorts now. Only a fool will try to short from here. The company and the stock has momentum, the product is selling, stop being a #$%$ and cover your shorts before you all get burned badly
Shorts are not too bright.
I still can't sell this iPhone. I had enough of the inferior email on this phone and want to switch to the Z10. Its ridiculous that I can't attach files to an email without buying some stupid third party app which still only allows one file to be attached per email. Dies anyone know where to sell an iPhone. I want $500 as its it 4 months old.
They buy Apple where its made by communists, they buy phones of companies that don't invest a cent into their own and don't even pay tax on their cash. Now they just plain by phones if companies that has zero made in America. Not even the cash is American. At least BBRY makes phones and software in North America that isn't communist. They do more for the US than Appleturds do. But that's America for you. They idolize cheap #$%$ like Steve jobs who was as arrogant and lowdown as anyone could be.
It just amazes me at the dirt bags that do what they can to discredit the company and its products. The German government came out and endorsed BlackBerry Z 10, yet not one article in the US about it. Come on Forbes stop being #$%$
Its expected that they lost subscribers and market share while waiting for the Z10 to come out. Its stupid to bring it up. They will also have a big loss on the next earnings as well. Its expected as there was no Z10
The manipulators on these boards just keep piling on the #$%$. Goldman already said that the returns were minimal but the turds on here just have to do whatever they can. Only a buffoon will stay short for the long term. I can see how a day trader will play this short game to make a quick 5%, but you must be very stupid to wait it out expecting to see $10 a share or less. Many hedgefunds have lost money so dont believe that they know anything because they dont know much more than the layman. The Goldman Sachs, Jefferies, Wells Fargos's are the credible players. The Caanacoords and the other small boutique firms are just trying to follow the herd. Dont be stupid, dont get conned, cover now before you get burned badly as this is one of the few stock where it can gap up 50% in a day.
And what about Walmart offering iPhones for $99 just a month after was released
A small catalyst is all it takes to pop it. Netflix will be minor compared to what this can be sent to.
Unless the earnings are a complete surprise and they blow out expectations, I believe that the shares will be very volatile and short term could even go down more than where it is. It is very unfortunate that there is this constant negativity and bashing which is on warranted. The US market is clearly the most dirty and underhanded of all stockmarkets in the world. Not unlike it's society where everyone carries a gun. Unfortunately the US is Apple country whether you like it or not. But without a doubt the Z10 is superior to the iPhone in all respects except for childish apps. But seeing that there is so much negativity against it it will definitely be an uphill battle in the US market. Even if the phone was just on par, I would still take the Z10 over iPhone or Samsung as I'm sick and tired of hearing about them and of all the suckers who want them to take their money and put it into China.
I've said it many times before and I'll say it again. I have an iPhone. I've been trying to get rid of it because I had enough of the inept email. Why should I have to purchase a third party app to attach a file most apps let you attach only one fe to an email. Most popular apps are children's games. Yes the children buy the iPhones , but its a useless outdated dinosaur yet these idiots still buy it and keep talking it up. So may short sighted fools. But in the US even Paris Hilton and kim somebody who do nothing can be rich and famous. Its makes me laugh
If a CEO of a big telecom company says sales have been good for Z10 then how can it not be true. Why is this not big news. As usual its put down by the short turds.
Of course its due idiot bashers who know nothing but have a short interest in the stock. With 20 percent short they will only add to it. The smarter money who got in below $10 are getting out with a profit. It needs an analyst upgrade before earnings.
That's a good article. It what I have always been saying. Mist of the 700,000 apps are for children.
Yes I agree that Heins wi t pump up something and risk penalties or lawsuits.
