    Based on this article, sounds like the shorts have been busy the last few days:

    Astec Analytics, another firm that tracks securities lending notes that its figures show a relatively calm borrowing environment for BlackBerry that escalated leading up to earnings.

    Our intraday data shows a fairly large number of new loans coming through, at an inflated cost to borrow, Astecs Karl Loomes notes.

    This is totally anecdotal but just to give my first hand impressions on sales of the Z10 during this quarter, my father got one about a month ago, a good friend, new to BB got one about 3 weeks ago, and a girl I know just got one 2 days ago. I know of 4 more people that got one during the first month as well. Now I'm only one guy but that is some good news in my opinion. They are still selling and there is still demand.

    Ok, back in for a break. At what point do you think the shorts will 'start' to cover?
    If you add 30% on the current SP that takes us to $18.85 give or take. My comfort zone
    is around 25-30% loss but more than that has me wanting to take some zantac lol.
    Thoughts?

    Yes, I am.

    My wife is due with our second any day now and she is having minor contractions. I'm worried I may miss the ER.
    Pretty selfish of her!

    I don't expect a huge jump upwards unless BBRY provides extremely positive guidance.

    As far as the drop, Blackberry hasn't actually indicated how they'll offset the service revenue drop, if they still don't on provide clear answers on this, expect this to be played again.

    I hope to be proven wrong but be prepared for anything.
    I expect huge volatility for about week and then we get the AGM and we're going to get something spike us and we start another pennant until September.

    Any huge loss of 25-30% would be based on emotion and would quickly rebound. I couldn't see more than 15-20% as even the most bearish reports have BB making a small profit.

    Maybe so but that pennant will be at a higher level than it is now.

    My humble opinion is its not so much the amount of loss...it's the cost to maintain the position, after all...they are not playing with their own money. if we can get to 12 - 15% I think that will see them reevaluate....It's only a loss when ya cover otherwise.

    Do you think the shorts have to cover just yet? These are big time players and they have the cash to play a bit longer. Shoot, TESLA squeezed and the shorts were still playing after the SP went up $7.00. I think we can expect the same. That's why I think when and IF this takes off, it won't explode until we reach $25 or greater....

    If this doesn't spike over $20 in the next week I'll start treating bbry as a money pump. In one of my accounts I'll stay long, and use the other to ride the roller coaster.

    I don't know about you but to get to $25 is a pretty big explosion to me

    True, but I think if it gets to $25 then we can expect a more powerful explosion that could send this to $60. This is based on the TESLA squeeze and what I've read/studied.

    Yes sir...should be five discernible benches when you look at a long term chart...as referenced here:

    Should be the same for BB...

    I've never been this excited over an ER before. 10 years, I've been value investing and have never seen such a pessimistic Mr. Market quote on such a optimistic catalyst driven debt free company!

    Nope...I honestly don't expect much either way (sorry guys)...but September is another story.
    I think it's safe to say the market (and price) of BlackBerry pre Jan lauch was hype...settled to low, rose a bit high on last ER. settled and has basically been rising month over month ever since. If the numbers are good we should be rewarded with a couple dollar bounce...then rubber band back and forth until Sept.

    If Sept blows the numbers out of the water...Boom...all investment houses will have to reajust and that is when this thing takes off for some serious gains.

    Just my two cents.

    Posted via CB10
    I agree. I think BBRY needs to keep executing and delivering the way they have been for the last 5-6 months, and things will fall into place (or so I hope).
    As much as I am hoping for a shortsqueeze tomorrow, I suspect that it will be more of a gradual covering of the shorts over the next couple of months than a massive run for cover, except if some big shot decides to invest massively, smelling blood!!

    I am long, average at 11.78$ so I will be patient! Hang in there guys!

    TH: "We expect to sell tens of Millions..."

    Assume that "Tens of Millions" is a minimum of 20m/4qtrs = 5m per qtr <-----me dreaming again

    Was he just referring to the Q10 when he made that statement?
    Only caveat being that maybe only 1 million is expected to be sold in Q1, 3 million in Q2 and Q3 and 9 million in Q4. Thor would still be correct under this scenario.

    I couldn't edit my post.

    Or some other back end heavy allocation of 10's of millions.

    Very possible but with his reaction, I think more than a million Q's shipped in the quarter. That was a fresh reaction that didn't come with the Z.

    I keep reading from some people on this thread it's beer thirty... so I got brainwashed into having a few, and reading this thread at the same time: priceless. Well then again a short squeeze tomorrow would be way more priceless than this, but then again, nothing wrong with a drink!
