    I just tried this. The online broker limited my sell price to $35/share. It also limited the date to mid-Feb. So I guess I just limited my upside if there is a price spike due to a short squeeze. Then again, as the old adage goes, "Nobody ever went broke taking a profit." and I can always buy back in.

    Go RIM!

    Has anyone been following NetFlix lately.
    In regards to NetFlix, something to keep in mind:

    Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Institutional Ownership & Holdings - NASDAQ.com
    Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Short Interest - NASDAQ.com
    NFLX Key Statistics | Netflix, Inc. Stock - Yahoo! Canada Finance

    Shares outstanding is 55.59m, the float is 48.77m
    Institutional ownership is 87.64% of shares outstandling: 48,718,325
    Insider ownership is 12.93%: 7,187,787
    Short interest as of 1/15/13 was 10,117,386

    Judging from the above, insider ownership is entirely the difference between shares outstanding and the float, and is all shares likely not available for sale at this time. If reported institutional ownership is added to reported insider ownership, we're over 100%. So where did 10m shares short come from?

    I hadn't been watching Netflix, but looking at the reported numbers I can see where they'd be looking at a VW-style squeeze. The stock structure almost seems designed for it.

    We should add another poll to this thread. Did you vote in the first poll? Have you changed your mind?

    Hmm...I just went into mine (with Scotia iTrade) and modified my sell to 2013/02/26...still at 105.00..(limit) Guess they all have their own rules. I am not expecting it to hit...more for fun than anything, but at least the shorts wont get them....

    If they do I guess I owe SuperFly a used car of his colour choice

    I'm just wondering, assuming the stock doesn't hit your limit price. Does it matter if you set your limit at $35 or $100?

    Also, is there a way to know if someone is borrowing your shares to short?

    Lol, that's him working overtime. Funny thing is most times he would have a whack of comments tearing a new a-hole. Take notice not one comment since Sat, people don't pay him the attention he seeks, now so more than ever with Jan.30 just hours away. He did try his best though,lol.

    it only matters to the short sellers because it removes the shares from the available pool of shares to short. so set it as high as your account will allow. you can cancel the trade at any time before it is filled.

    No...if it doesn't hit you keep your stock, just keeps it from being available for shorts...if a squeeze hits hard 35 may/may not be high enough. I just like the 105.00 cuz it makes me laugh…some fellow (short RIM)…sitting in his office looking to see what the likely cover is going to cost him see’s my block at that price…haha…makes me laugh typing it…should be a new BlackBerry commercial a-la-Mastercard…Priceless.

    The secret to options:

    1) Learn the basics of what they are. Leveraged securities.
    2) Ignore all the "techniques" that are discussed.
    3) Learn about value investing. When a stock is grossly undervalued or overvalued, get options cheap.

    People that bought long dated call options when RIMM was at $8 are the ones that made out. Overall, I am up 1000% on my basket of RIMM securities. Only 20% of the cash I put in was actual stock.

    Options are a value investors dream. Thing is, if you don't know what the underlying company is worth, you might as well go to the casino and invest there.

    This is just a followup from my previous post on ownership/short interest in NetFlix, but using numbers for RIMM. The numbers source is from Yahoo finance and the NASDAQ, which may or may not be accurate and up to date.

    RIMM Key Statistics | Research In Motion Limited Stock - Yahoo! Finance
    Research in Motion Limited (RIMM) Ownership Summary - NASDAQ.com

    Shares Outstanding: 514.84m
    Float: 484.84m
    Difference between shares outstanding and float: 30m

    Insiders: 15.01% of shares outstanding: 77.28m
    Institutions: 56.79% of shares outstanding: 297,665,666

    So starting from the float of 484.84, if we remove the insider portion (77.28m-30m), and institutional holdings (297m), we're left with 140.56m shares.

    Short interest as of 1/15/13 was 135m shares. That's a huge number of shares, representing almost half of the institutional holdings. I don't think it's a covered short. I'm also getting very inclined to think it's going to take margin calls before people start covering, their losses are getting bad enough that they can't do anything but hope the price falls: If they do cover, their losses will be even worse.

    Research In Motion Limited (USA)(NASDAQ:RIMM), just two days away from unveiling its new Blackberry 10 OS, plans to introduce lower price tiers for apps in Blackberry World, starting with the British pound and Euro.

    In the United Kingdom the lowest level will be 0.75 pounds, down from 1 pound. In terms of the Euro, prices will vary from country to country but reports say that apps as low as 0.75 euro on the Spanish site have been found.

    According to RIM, the tweak takes currency exchange rates and VAT requirements into account, and is an effort to gain a competitive edge and catch the eyes of consumers.

    The idea is for the apps to have a wider appeal and for those who are looking to save their coins. The price adjustments are automatic depending on which country the user resides in.

    I clipped this from some website. good news is that it looks like rim will try to go head to head with the other ecosystem on app price!

    this thread has been unusually quiet so far today.
    is today's plan to ignore the activity and check the stock price at closing, as to not panic sell?

    And the best comment at your link is this

    Dear Clueless *•* 22 minutes ago Report Abuse
    "a whopping 86% of analysts still rate the stock Hold or Sell." #$%$. RIMM has gone from $6 to $18 in the last 6 months. Way to be on top of things guys.
