    Well seeing as the stock isn't doing diddly squat today, and HALO was mentioned last week, I was shown another pharma that's been on a tear for the last number of months. DND - Cipher Pharmaceuticals Inc. Just more food for thought for those who may be interested.

    Oh Blackberry, why so quiet ha!

    Something has to be going on behind the scenes that about to make a splash (good or bad). The question is when and what?!

    Of course it will get no attention as the damage has been done and who really wants to hear facts when rumours are far more fun.
    Let's write this where deserved.

    Cantech : done
    WSJ : done

    f you have other places to copy/paste below ... well, just do it and let's see if the stock ... ok,ok, I'm dreamin'

    "We did not cut half of our sales force," said Lisette Kwong, senior manager, corporate communications at BlackBerry. "Instead we are moving a small number of US-focused sales roles that were based in Canada to the US to be more closely aligned with our customers. This is part of the second phase of our transformation plan."

    Just a quick update. We have a wedge so far--bullish continuation. Holding above $10.81 is key.

    Gotta hand it to Apple, they know how to market a product. They found a way of not saying "plastic", they call it "hard-coated polycarbonate".

    BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY): BlackBerry Short Sellers Are Not Out Of The Woods Yet - Seeking Alpha

    BlackBerry Short Sellers Are Not Out Of The Woods Yet
    Sep 10 2013, 13:39 | about: BBRY
    BOOKMARK / READ LATER

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. (More...)

    I want to return to the BlackBerry (BBRY) short interest argument, because I have the sense that investors think BlackBerry short sellers are really big winners. The data I will present will show they are neither big winners and at the same time in imminent danger of being on the wrong side of the trade soon.

    Below is a chart of BlackBerry's stock price vs.short interest. I think this is a new feature of YCharts and one that is extremely powerful and helpful (thanks YCharts).

    BBRY Chart

    BBRY data by YCharts

    As you can see from the chart, BlackBerry short interest ranged from around 15-66 million shares between the period 2004-2012. Something else very interesting to note is that even when BlackBerry was over $100 a share after 2008, short interest did not increase! In fact, even when BlackBerry crashed from $140 all the way to the mid 40's, short interest was flat.

    This is important for several reasons:

    The market did not short in bulk even when BlackBerry was a bubble of biblical proportions

    The market did not see what was coming

    The market, as far as short interest is concerned, was wrong (something not common).

    Now let me show you a close-up chart:

    BBRY Chart

    BBRY data by YCharts

    As the above chart shows, the market was not shorting BlackBerry when it was a bubble, but instead decided to short every single share it can find when the stock started falling below $12-$13 a share. In fact the only real winners, as I can see, are those who shorted at the $13 mark all the way down to about $7.5 and covered. Because if they did not, they are in the red (most of them).

    From about July 2012 to February 2013, short interest increased from about 75 million to about 133 million, while the stock was on the way up and reached about $18 a share. In other words, all short sellers were in the red big time if they had not placed a stop-loss.

    From about February of 2013 short interest increased by a lot, however how many people shorted at the $18 mark? Very few if any. Most of the short interest since then was below the $15 mark.

    As I see it, with the exception of the short interest before 2012, the only true winners are the short sellers who managed to cover at the bottom and those who shorted above $15 a share. See, BlackBerry's stock today is trading around $11. That's not much of a cushion if you're one of those who have shorted those 150 million shares.

    And the reason for this is because of all the BlackBerry takeover talk these days. See, even if BlackBerry is taken out at $15 a share, there are very few that can say that they have made money shorting BlackBerry. And if for some reason the buyout price is anything higher than that, then there might be no current short sellers in the black at all.

    So will BlackBerry short sellers be running for cover? That remains to be seen. However as the case of the buyout of Nokia (NOK) by Microsoft (MSFT) proved, buyouts usually happen at premiums and not at rock bottom prices, even for a company like Nokia, that had an overleveraged balance sheet with almost no cash, where BlackBerry has no debt and plenty of cash.

    I'm surprised with the lack of aggressive pricing on the iPhone 5C.
