    Red face Does this chart make anyone else smile?

    Bought some RIMM shares last September and was happily looking over some info tonight (go RIMM!!!! ^_^) when I ran into this and couldn't help but share it...
    Obviously this comparison doesn't say too much, but it kinda makes me feel all tingly inside dreaming about the downfall of the iphone and BB's rightful reclaiming of the smartphone throne with the release of BB10!!! Any thoughts?

    I will smile when RIMM gets above $30. I bought at $27 and holding, and factoring in money lost on interest, it will take $30 for me to break even.

    yeah I especially like it because the range for the chart is for the last year to date (which is when RIMM basically starts inversely mirroring AAPL) .... and didn't we just celebrate Thor's 1 year anniversary at BB a few days ago?

    Click the '5 years' button now. It doesn't mean much, Apple is still the (EDIT: second) most valuable company in the world...

    Exon is because Apple has fallen so far.

    If you pull out the chart for the past decade, RIMM stock was double Apple. Times change, hopefully we see a rise of RIMM again.

    I don't think this is supposed to present a defeat, but rather an opportunity.
