BlackBerry ~~> Consider Extending Product Discounts to Shareholderes of $RIMM
I have been a shareholder for some time...started acquiring the shares on weakness...and then a whole lot more weakness came forth. The classic value trap. Some companies have extending employee discounts to shareholders of those firms....how about offering something similar to loyal shareholders...just a thought if you wish to promote additional sales to those that believe in your product...So if you are reading this thread...please consider it....Cheers!

As a fellow shareholder - I figure my "rewards" for being a shareholder comes from the increased value of the stock as the new platform takes off. Those increases mean profits for me as a shareholder. I don't think that Blackberry needs to do anything more than do well.
My husband and I plan to purchase new handsets with BB10. That's how we help Blackberry's bottom line thus helping the company do well thus giving me profit on my investment.
I've never heard of firms extending employee discounts to shareholders. What companies do that?

Sounds like you're a tad upset about buying in during the fall. That was your decision to do so and yours to hold as it went down. I don't ask the casino to give me money to play with as a frequent visitor to the black jack table.

Oh...i don't know...maybe Ford Motor Company
And while $F's stock chart is not a beauty...its certainly better than $RIMM's right now.
Have a great weekend...Cheers!

Umm so how many shares would you need to qualify for this product discount?
1, 10, 10k?
No. This is a dumb idea. Shareholders are not the same as employees. Like other said, buy the product if you want it and hopefully the stock goes up because the phone is doing well.
Alright...no worries...i am just tossing out a thought on the public forum...just trying to suggest ideas to boost sales of a new product.
My position in $RIMM is contained to a small percentage of my portfolio, as i believe in risk management and diversification.
I am not asking for agreement from the community. I am just posting a thread for consideration by the deciders at corporate headquarters.
I am not posting any more replies...i have no interest in defending this idea...just had a nice glass of Scotch and decided to float an idea.
I will buy a new BB regardless...Cheers!

If the discount was substantial the shares would begin to skyrocket. Almost everyone who buys a BlackBerry would buy a piece of stock beforehand. You'd see ads on television "When you buy a BlackBerry you aren't just a blackberry customer. You're a BlackBerry Owner." Soon after other companies would follow and the stock market would essentially become a coupon store.
