Ah OK. Messenger shooting has always been popular here.
FWIW, I wondered over carrier testing issues as a possible cause? Last I read the HW had been released to the carriers for testing and I guess "success" isn't a given or the testing would be a pointless exercise.
NVM, we'll know one way or the other in a couple of months.

Personally, I don't agree with this note, but at the same time I can't really argue with the facts they base it on, either. What's that Yogi Berra line? Something about prediction being tricky, especially when it comes to the future?

Easy excuse for profit taking today after a monster run up on the stock. Tomorrow (if not then within a week) a note upgrade will hit the wires form Goldman Sachs that will send the stock back up on the upward path. Good buying opportunity, it's going higher

Every time I hear an analyst say, "our checks indicate ...", I'd love to ask them more about their 'methodology' for conducting checks. Have you ever noticed that few of them actually say what they do to 'check' with developers or stores?

As others have mentioned, I can't help but think there is an attempt at manipulation with the share price by some of these brokerages. The stock price has been trending higher over the past 6 weeks or so, but appreciation really took off in the past couple weeks, after a RIM media blitz, and subsequent analyst outlook revision to the upside. Stocks never go straight up, and a retreat was definitely in the cards, but in the past 2 days, there has been a return to the negative pile on occurring, almost as if response to the positive outlooks in the past couple weeks.
I think some of these outfits were caught off guard with the sudden rise and wanted to take it back down, possibly to cover some shorts. The RIM story right now is extremely speculative, so the share price is more sensitive to new analysis, either to upside or downside.
Not sure how much this is actually happening, but my conspiracy theorist side of me can't help it.

Can you imagine the chat over drinks at Illuminati HQ?
"So, how was everyone's week?"v
"Great! Busy week for us Elders of Zion... But we did manage to get our guy elected president, and transfer another trillion dollars to our offshore accounts!"
"Good on ya! We also had a week full of wins in the CIA. Knocked off a couple of dictators in Latin America, and the coup preparations in Egypt and Bahrain are going swell!"
"Man it's good to be the 0.01%! Did you guys hear about the cure for cancer we managed to bury Thursday in Big Pharma? I also got promoted and am in charge of the chemtrail spraying!"
"What about you Gus? You seem kinda quiet, how is everything at Apple? You guys up to something nefarious?
"Uhm, yeah! We had one of our plants write a really mean editorial on Reearch In Motion, AND we managed to keep their stock price below 13$!"

Do you really think corporations with billions of dollars in their bank accounts got to where they are by being friendly and fair? What are you putting in your coffee and where can I get it?

What a buzz kill these articles are becoming.
I don't know if these writes understand that these articles make it even worse for the market. First off it changes human perspective of a brand, constant negativity like this about an unreleased phone will make people second guess it and move to a more popular brand like the iphone or android. This gives innovation and a push on great products slow to a pace that Apple and Google want to go at rather then push them to develop a more competitive device.
As consumers we all seek acknowledgment from others based on what we have to be shuned by the media and people around you because of a device you use is something people don't want so they go to the cool stuff.
Its a shame what the world has come to, technology will be the death of personalities and our ability to make our own choices.
