    Personally I bought a bit more during the fall yesterday, but not buying anymore on the fall in price today. I sold some around ~17.50, but i'm still a bit over what I wanted to have on the table in my cost. That I think the price is going to rise doesn't mean it will. I not going to panic and sell as a result of the market selloff, but i'm also not buying anymore until after the launch tomorrow.

    this is not how i expected this week to go, with it being the last 2 trading days before the launch of a phone that has received universally positive reviews and has global carrier support.
    The beast is not logical, it's cynical ... don't play against the beast.

    as of right now it looks like its stabilizing at the 15 mark but maybe its a stop before another short
    I think it goes a little higher for awhile, but into the close who knows. Damage done, time to stabilize in the 15's somewhere. Hope on....

    Is it weird that I'm not too concerned? I feel like with the launch tomorrow, the subsequent marketing blitz, and the phones set to be released within a couple weeks (if not a matter of days), the stock price should rebound.

    Funny, this is exactly what I expected.
    Don't worry, it sets up tomorrow nicely.
    Another thing to keep in mind is that volatility will drop significantly tomorrow with the launch. So even if it moves in your direction, it could lose value. Right now, Feb 15 puts are valued at 1.30, there is no
    items 18 days left, that is insane. So if you are wanting an option position, I would wait until after clarity.

    Wait for the launch, expect it to be overwhelming. They're holding something back. Something integral to their whole vision of a Blackberry future. Just have to wait and see.

    Im with you, bought at 17.75 so on paper im at a pretty big loss. I still believe the stock will hit $25 just sit back and don't let emotions take over.

    I feel the same - not concerned.
    I got in around $6 and been buying more along the way (average about $9/share now). In any case, I am holding for awhile so this kind of fluctuations don't really cause any concern to me.

    LONG on RIMM for me means 1-2 years out, at a minimum. From what I have seen, BB10 is an outstanding platform, with phones that lap the competition. Things will not change overnight with retail customers, but the tide will continue to turn back to RIM. So I will be patient and not worry about getting in at the absolute bottom or watching these wild swings before the release. I have not lost ANYTHING because I will not make a sell transaction for years. And by then we will be talking about BlackBerry as an industry leader again.

    Be strong, RIMPIRE Stormtroopers!

    Amen. I still foresee a short squeeze in the near future, for me I plan on holding for 6 months and take a bit of profit. Would love a vacation! GO RIM

    You bet I am ... (missed the date only by 3 weeks lol)

    As noted by Bla1ze in the blog (A closer look at the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device and some of the secrets it holds | CrackBerry.com), a mysterious "Rubicon" appears to be several times mentioned in the BB10 dev alpha guts ...

    Most of you, N.A CB members, won't probably even notice what "Rubicon" suggest ...
    For a European (former) Latin it's pretty much meaningful. Let's have some history :
    Rubicon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    wiki
    In 49 BC, supposedly on January 10 of the Roman calendar, G. Julius Caesar led one legion, the Legio XIII Gemina, south over the Rubicon from Cisalpine Gaul to Italy to make his way to Rome. In doing so, he (deliberately) broke the law on imperium and made armed conflict inevitable. According to the historian Suetonius, Caesar uttered the famous phrase ālea iacta est ("the die has been cast").[1] Caesar's decision for swift action forced Pompey, the lawful consuls (G. Claudius Marcellus and L. Cornelius Lentulus Crus), and a large part of the Roman Senate to flee Rome in fear. Caesar's subsequent victory in Caesar's civil war ensured that punishment for the infraction would never be rendered.


    As I'm used to now, I'll forecast (speculatively) :
    On January 10, RIM launches the invasion . Codename : "alea jacta est" (aka "do or die").

    This is a great tradable stock, I have had excellent timing both up and down strictly based on sentiment. I have closed all my short positions today though.
    I wouldn't want to be short tomorrow, they could something as simple as announce 1m in pre orders and take it to $20.

    Anything I say would be speculation.

    Could be anything from a BB Laptop to the next generation of Blackberry Bridge, running in a native environment.

    (Personally, I'm leaning towards it being a software feature and it being all about M2M communication.)

    In olden times, if your army crossed the Rubicon (river), it implied you are past the "point of no return". You can only go forward now (and war!)
