I just read the dead cat bounce article. I'm no stock market pro, but I do not fully agree with it. They didn't factor in bb10 or what's in the REAL future for RIM. If you're part of CB and follow what's going on, I would think buying stock would be a good idea. I think the author of the article should get to know RIM better.Be the change you want to see.

With the brilliant economics minds in this article, this should be stickied for reference in one year from this date.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

they started making different hardware choices...
DevAlpha looks like a pretty different hardware choice by RIM from their traditional functions
RIM today is very different from RIM in 2008, management has changed, internal focus has changed, and they actually have some people who are software first people in management positions, so to count RIM out based on their past and dismissing that Apple made a turn around isn't really fair to RIM,
Do I think they'll hit Apple like stock prices? probably not unless they start earning $300 per shareoops...
Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital. \

RIM isn't going into a totally new business at all. They are still making smartphones (just better ones this time around), and they are still competing against the same very strong, well established competitors.
I'm not saying RIM can't turn this around. That's not my point. It just that any comparison to Apple to me makes no sense. The iPod and iTMS are what saved Apple, not the Mac.
To make this clear: Apple did not save themselves by just making better versions of what they were already making. RIM is trying to save themselves by making a better version of what they were already making (smartphones). Huge difference. If RIM succeeds, it will be a totally different story from Apple.

bb10 isn't going to help RIM for over a year at the earliest. bb10 is going to be a long slow adoption, and that's assuming it actually takes off, the initial hardcore fans won't have a huge bearing on stock price or overall outlook. they have many years of hard work ahead of them to try to gain any new subscribers from other platforms. i would personally wait for the stock to tank AFTER bb10 launch.
