It depends of your knowledge, you strategy and mostly the amount you"re dealing with.
Stock is hyper volatile, day trading is almost incompatible with "all in/outs" and fees would ruin anything under 10% gains (or such).
That makes it very, very tricky.
If you're rookie, you planned an long haul (you trust the product) and have a hundred or thousand shares, then I believe the proper (safer) action might be wait and see.
P.S: This is what I think (and do), but I do not pretend this is a valuable advice to buy/sell or even trade.

This is major guys. They keep pounding the stock at open and then HUGE orders come in. I'm sure this is constant attempts to cover short positions.
There is simply not enough shares out there to cover all the short float. I agree with the original poster. Based on the potential for a massive short squeeze and your downside is protected this makes for an obvious asymmetric trade. This stock isn't even trading at book value yet!

Strategy before getting in is really key...if you want quick gains and willing to take the chance, great. If your more about midterm (few quarter reporting periods) great...long term…fine.
But...don't get excited over a swing in price over a short term...these are but small ripples in the ocean of the stocks life...retail investors can only research and place bets based on knowledge over the longer term then sit back and watch (for the most part)
Poetic don't ya think…and just my opinion.

I'm holding out.
I intentionally didn't set stop loss orders because I had a feeling shorts were going to wipe out a large sum of them and it seems they've accomplished what they wanted. I believe RIM is getting ready for another rally. Time will tell!

We got the platform. The shorts saved $billions.
We will enjoy BB10. They can't take that from us. The stocks should rise once the word and user experience on the platform gets out.CB Kevin "if a single member is going to bring this community down by their consistent negative contributions and never add anything of merit or substance to the forums, I'd rather them not be a member at all (even if they didn't "break" the rules)."

Nice predictions on the stock price plummet today campers.
BUY ON RUMORS, SELL ON NEWS.
It will be a buy again. It will be tortuous climb back. Investors (not people buying 50 shares) will want to see sales (not shipped) figures. And they won't see US sales for 3 months. Yes, I know the US doesn;t matter, blah, blah, blah, but the traders apparently don't share your optimism. Today was a bad day for RIMBerry shareholders.
Give it a few days. It has gone down 3 days in a row. Let the slew of mediocre to bad reviews die down and real customers to get their hands on the Z10. Then buy.
