    RIM went up because of the Samsung rumor, but I don't quite see why Samsung want a piece of RIM. Reason being

    1. Samsung makes some nice Windows Phones, If it doesn't like where Google is taking Android, I would expect Samsung to make more WPs. I just checked # of WP apps, it has grown to 71K. The WP eco system clearly has some momentum, which may accelerate with Win8.

    2. Samsung is already big in emerging markets (smartphone or not), it doesn't need help there.

    I don't think RIM can be saved by anybody else except itself.
    Not everyone wants a Windows Phone. If Samsung thinks enough people would want to run BBOS on a samsung device that they could make more profit than they would with just WP, of course they'd want to do it.

    I had some [well informed] returns that may confirm this ... http://forums.crackberry.com/news-ru...9/#post7246539

    RIMM is down to 13.58 in pre-market. Let's see where it opens, it might be a good time to look at some options or the stock itself again though the upcoming earnings report is a little scary. If they miss and didn't pre-announce, the entire board should be removed. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

    Well, 29th will be a big date, for sure.

    Finally, the 29th was not a "big" date. It was a "crucial" date.
    Being realistic and clear is the proper way to make investors' confidence back.
    I'm not capable of a precise analysis but I see a very high amount of transactions, while the stock is tending to $15 target ...
    Does it sounds like "okay, we got it, the guy is serious: let's get back to [serious] business now" ?


    Edit : climb RIM climb !

    Call me a dreamer, a fanatic, a fool or whatever, I'm just buying some RIM shares right now.
    While I think it can't really hurt me and I may have a delicious surprise in,say, 5 years, I'm not doing this in a speculative vision, just a support action. As my savings are low, I'll not spend a lot, so maybe I'll buy only 5.

    How many of us (and friends) can afford this ? I don't know ...
    But if we actively buzz this, it may ... oh, yes, I'm a dreamer...
    But just imagine 10% of BB users claiming five shares ...

    P.S: Yes, I'm a part of the 99% : I have no other share anywhere.

    Disclaimer : buying shares is a high risk action that must not be done unless the money you engage is under 5% of your personal liquid assets. By no mean I intend to forecast a raise of the shares or any kind of advantage. Be aware that You can lose everything and I won't be responsible for this in any circumstance. (if any jurist is around, please PM me if this disclaimer is a fail !)
    Dupe post...

    5 lots? Because you surely can't mean 5 shares.

    You'd be better off spending that on a nice bottle of Irish whiskey.

    I guarantee a higher return on your investment. Though not a monetary one.

    Bank on it.

    Well, reaction was definitely positive today!

    I'm sure different buyers have different reasons for this. Some are probably impressed that Heins really does understand that big changes are needed and seems to have the strength/authority to make some big changes.

    And then others are probably betting on a sale of all or part of the company since Heins did say that they are actively looking at any and all strategic options now.

    This amazes me.

    EVERYONE is saying the company is 'quiting' and 'giving up' and the stock takes the biggest climb in A LONG TIME. This truly shows that investors know the potential of RIM regardless of what the media says... RIM just needs to focus on the people buying the products and that will make it a lot better (and i dont mean 'average' people, i mean business).

    As a previous poster suggested, it may simply be a small bounce anticipating a buyout.

    I don't get how there's still anticipation of a buyout. I figured Thorsten addressed this yesterday, and since turning RIM around is what he's employed to do, I think this whole buyout nonsense needs to be let go.

    You can set up an account online. I use scottrade...However at this point I would not invest any cash in Rim....I would wait a few quarters( to see how bb10 performs)..You want to invest in leaders not laggards....

    Well obviously, it wouldnt be that people are actually happy with the company. That would be crazy talk!

    RIM does something bad GETS BASHED. RIM does something good GETS BASHED.

    Actually it became 50 shares.
    I also "invested" in a nice wine bottle "lot" .
    Not certain of what "dupe" means ...

    Depends of the "meaning/goal" of your "investment" ...
    If you stay into what you consider being "pocket money", you can spend it thinking :
    - Just my way to put acts & talk together (my #1 reason)
    - Let's bid some money here; a small amount don't match "reasonable" investment strategy; I bet for at last a 2 digits raise and a lost (unlikely probable) won't put me into trouble.

    Please remind that this is in no way an "investment specialist" advice; refer to the first pages of this thread ...

    I'm a VERY large shareholder of RIM stock. I bought it writing Naked Puts and the Call premiums are amazing so it is a great investment for me. If you time it right, you can make far superior profits then buying and holding something like Apple.

    Now we have a pop in the stock and this one looks like it has legs so I'll hold off writing more Calls until it tops in the near-term. RIM has been a great investment for me, hope others have figured out how to double your money this way too.

    That depends on when you got in. I have a good friend who's owned Apple since 96. She was buying round lots in the $16 - $20 range. She's never sold.

    lol @ having "superior profits then buying and holding something like apple" Do you follow the stock market? Apple has been on a tear. Purchasing rimm's stock isn't considered an investment at this point....Rimm is considered a good long term investment by some however i'm not purchasing any stocks until there are improvements with management, products, sales, eps etc...etc...
