    Sorry if this has been posted. Had to read thru over 20 pages on here last night - even had to stop using the likes as it was slowing me down.

    Mr. Blair has some good ideas...

    LoL, and add to that, remember the brand Rayban? Majority sunglass/eyeglasses business is owned by one italian company. 60 minutes had a documentary about it the other day. Same company purchased the Brand RayBan at the time when RayBan was dumping their brand Glasses for as low as $30 retail in the market. After purchasing the brand, this company stopped manufacturing the brand for 2 or 3 years. Then they reintroduced the brand again in the market. Today RayBans are more expensive than ever.
    LoL this is just an example. Dont compare it with phones.
    Nope, but it is indeed one valuation many just swap. The Brand. And I believe BlackBerry brand alone worth multiples of $100Million ... add it to the bill

    Why aren't the arbs taking this thing to $9? PW couldn't be much clearer. I think....

    "We've got a track record of 28 years of completing what we've done. We've never re-negotiated," Watsa said. "We thought long and hard before we offered $9 dollars a share and we're not in the business of offering a number and at the last minute changing the figure. Over 28 years our reputation is stellar on that front. We just don't do that."

    Fairfax says it won't abandon BlackBerry bid
    I'm guessing it's because with the $9 ceiling, until another bid comes, or not, who wants to buy at or near $9? Not much upside. So bids are for less until anything else comes along.

    "Rest assured when we do this it won't be done to split the company," Watsa said. "I mean one of the reasons I went on the board, and I said it publicly, was to keep the company in Canada and to make sure it survives and exists in Canada. It is one of Canada's most successful companies. Companies do fall on hard times and they come back again and we expect this company to do the same."

    Slow motion ... but in the right direction. Stay tuned !

    As much as some people are on his case (I'm not one of them), we need more leaders like him in this country.

    Unfortunately the shareholders are the ones who have been getting it in the back door lately, and it hasn't been very smooth and gliding along, lol.

    But Cj, that is still more than 10% uptick. However the risk is also higher.

    Windows Phone could be strong in the enterprise next year. They got the FIPS certification, in q1/2014 they are releasing an 'Enterprise Feature Pack' with many security improvements. They will release a new version of Office optimized for touch and Terry Myerson kind of confirmed the rumors of phablets with Windows RT. So It won't be easy for BlackBerry 10 in the corporate market.

    Charts are kinda outdated for this kind of actions. I believe CJ is working on producing high resolution pictures and videos as evidence to support his opinion in this matter.

    Well to me the 8.80 area made sense. This low 8's, high 7's doesn't so much but then again, how many here sold yesterday in the low 8's? A lot and so did a lot of others. The buyers know that people just want out and are saying **** it so they put their bids in low expecting to strike.

    perhaps BB should sell the royalties to the soap opera they offer the world,
    and they would be out of trouble right away.

    Off topic -- spot the most improbable sentence

    Traders may have gotten last week’s Fed news 7 milliseconds early

    There would seem to be three possibilities: 1) Some trader was extraordinarily lucky, placing a massive bet just before a major announcement that would make that bet highly profitable. 2) There was a leak, either by a media organization with early access to the data or even someone at the Fed. Or 3) The laws of physics have been violated as the information traveled from Washington to Chicago faster than the speed of light. You can see why Option 2 looks the most plausible.

    Presumably there will be a hard look into what exactly happened...

    BlackBerry Ltd. (BB), the smartphone maker looking to go private in a $4.7 billion deal, is seeing support from suppliers, customers and partners wobble amid speculation the company may shut down its handset business.

    Jabil Circuit Inc. (JBL), an electronics supplier that counts BlackBerry as its second-largest customer, said yesterday it will probably disengage from BlackBerry in the coming months. That’s a sign the smartphone company’s handset business is shrinking, said Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies LLC.

    Lol, we all know the answer.
    I remember, once a reporter asked a Japanese businessman about share holders loosing because the laws of inside trading and info leaks are are some what lax in that country. The businessman looked at this reporter like reporter was from another planet and said," why would you trade if you don't have inside information"?
