    Well when BlackBerry says that, maybe someone can answer.

    Lame. He said in his snippet earlier that he contacted BlackBerry and stay tuned. Well he did contact them and guess what their response was.... they will not comment on the story. Same as always. Don't comment on rumours.

    Could this be the most colossal setup ever to manufacture a short squeeze with no real deal at the end ?

    Far too dangerous IMHO. Sounds like "desperate all in" and I don't think T.H drinks that kind of beer.

    That's some powerful investigative reporting!


    The old trick a lot of journalists will use is to ask for a comment literally before they go to air knowing that most corporations don't respond that quickly and then they can say "They didn't get back to us with a response" [they have something to hide right?]

    No it's fully legit since he leave the board...

    Why I think (Can't be Wrong but I think) it's very possible, it leave the board to be able to quick move without having any legal obligation about BBRY.

    Is main goal is not really the success of BBRY but the success of Fairfax, if both can happen fine, but the only peoples he have legal obligation now are for Fairfax Shareholders.
    Let's say you're right. So basically, Prem would be flushing his whole reputation and "investing lifestyle" mark.
    This would be the end of his reputation and fund, IMHO. Did he stated he wants to retire ?
    In business, there's something you must always add to analysis : the human factor.
    True for the above and I believe also true for the "cultural compatibility" I've mentioned several times already.

    Sometimes, we look at the details - with our best accuracy - and forget the whole picture red signs ... That's where entrepreneurs/investors (V.S day traders) are good at : look way forward, especially when the weather is bad.

    I believe this is not the most accurate reading of the situation; even weirdest ones are more likely to happen.

    "hide one's tracks", like keeping mouth shut ?
    (BTW BlackBerry didn't say anything as of date. Mark it as intentional leak ? Maybe ...)

    I am fearful that BBRY is pumping it's stock to allow insiders to sell into the short covering etc... the earnings numbers are fully known internally now. It just makes no sense that the company makes public announcements (and leaks hehe) if there truly were concrete negotiations going on behind the scenes. When serious negotiations are happening the company is not out pumping it's stock.

    I also fear there may be some truth here. For example, when did the general public find out about the Nokia, Motorola and Skype acquisitions? I believe there may have been some speculation but no where near the amount of involvement by bbry management.

    Thanks, just trying to see what advantages this brings. Why would they leak such a thing? I do think it is intentional and IS from Blackberry but others will believe what they want. I refuse to be one sided.

    That's what I thought too.
    And I think Greg said he was leaving this forum too as he was totally done . That's the reason I asked.

    I guess BlackBerry just makes you come back for more!

    Could you possible conceive that I am done but am unable to sell due to the loss that I would incur? Is that possible ?

    I am due and my drop dead date for selling will be before the next ER.

    I am not in deep as I can not afford to drop another $30,000!

    You're kidding me right? I'm pretty sure I remember you basically calling everyone who owns BBRY an ***** very recently. You also said you sold out of your position and are never buying BBRY or visiting this thread again.

    Now that the stock is shooting up and it looks like a buyout is imminent you happen to have a position in it again. Pretty convenient.

    Edit: I DI OT is censored? Lol

    There are many here who "used" to post here that still own stock but choose to no longer participate here. When is make you sick to your stomach, can you blame them?

    It might look like that, but I get the feeling it's a flanking maneuver.
