    Marijuana stocks soar as speculators see green
    Theyve got high hopes.

    Bruce Perlowin, the chief executive officer of Hemp Inc. who has seen his stock soar 205 percent to 8 cents in the last three days, says investors are suddenly bidding up marijuana companies because they want to find the next Microsoft. Robert Frichtel, his Advanced Cannabis Solutions Inc. up 144 percent after posting $455 in sales last quarter, said euphoria is driving gains that in some cases top 1,700 percent.

    The demand for marijuana is insatiable, said Perlowin, a once-jailed smuggler who filed last month to sell 12 million shares of the Las Vegas-based company even as its market value holds 99.97 percent below the worlds biggest software maker. You have a feeding frenzy for the birth of a new industry.

    While regulators warn of scams, some of the biggest percentage gains in the stock market this year are being enjoyed by investors speculating on marijuana penny stocks. GreenGro Technologies Inc., which provides management services for medical dispensaries, has soared 1,714 percent to 80 cents. Tranzbyte Corp., which sells pot in Colorado, has gained more than 310 percent in five trading sessions, crossing above a penny for the first time in 11 months.

    I agree... tax the **** out of it, make it quality and the same price/cheaper than you can get it on the street, and you get 2 major benefits... 1, major revenues that will offset the loss, or at least decline, in smokers revenues, and 2, a major hit to organized crime. Imagine the loss the Angels would feel if they no longer had the green flowing from the green?

    Totally CJ, I know quite a few people personally in the "Biz" from my town... This is going to happen, it has to because local governments are broke both here and in the USA. Dishing out speeding tickets just does not cut it anymore! They need serious revenue and this is it. Plus, nobody will drive fast anymore as everything will be in slow motion

    And having been there (I was one of the ones doing the fighting), I agree with you guys in terms of the casual/simple possession-type of user. This is going to be a double-whammy money maker for government in terms of what they can make (tax) and what they don't have to spend (enforcement). Personally though.....I prefer Wisers!!!

    This is another example of how experts are bull****. I was recently having a conversation with a friend who said I was mad for generally completely ignoring experts in finance, business, and politics, but I don't care. If you actually follow up on most experts, you find that they are almost always wrong. These analysts predict one thing and then predict something else shortly after. They should all just try to be honest and say they haven't got a clue.

    BlackBerry's Chen: We'll get our talent from Silicon Valley - Fortune Tech

    Excerpts:
    Despite the seeming improbability of bringing BlackBerry back from the dead, Chen has a lot of goodwill behind him. For one, investors are anxious to support any company that can disrupt the stronghold that Google and Apple have in the smartphone market, making the competitive dynamics more equitable. And a generation of smartphone users who first learned to send e-mail on the go with a BlackBerry still miss the physical keyboards. Chen has said he'll bring them back.

    ...

    In December, Chen announced a corporate reorganization that untethered the company's software services from its devices. And he's building a sales force to make a more direct pitch to regulated industries like finance and health care, which face security measures and compliance issues that BlackBerry has long been well-equipped to address. "The reason BlackBerry hasn't won it in the past is because there hasn't been a sales force on it," he said.

    ...

    Chen has faith that BlackBerry will rise again. He has now dropped the "interim" from his title as CEO. But he's not leaving Silicon Valley for Waterloo, where the company is based. "This is where we're closer to the market and we'll get our talent," he said.

    This week finally brought my BlackBerry shares to back in black status...ya.
    Glad to know you are on the mend Morgan. You keep leaving us all to worry about you. Wish I had of bought HALO last summer when you first talked about it. I looked hard at it but the pharmaceuticals don't like me so I stood and watched it take off. Hope you are taking a little profit off the table on that one.
    I really like JC and am confident that he is the man to turn this ship around. PW on the other hand is in my bad books. The only good thing he has done for us is bring in JC. Everything else PW has done was for his own benefit. My wish is that PW stays the heck away from JC and let's him do his stuff. We need the JC vision to materialize. The only thing JC has done so far that causes me to scratch my head a bit is his comments about having the future focus on the querty. I know some who are lovers of the querty but I just see the future as being all about screen space. A decent screen size is important for so many different functions and applications. The Q10's were never flying off the shelf. Looks like they are moving ahead with the Q30. I would like to hear your comments about the keyboard focus.
    Looks like Super Fly is soon moving to Canada or the USA as I read that French millionaires get taxed at a rate of 75%.
    TMG:TSXV or TMGEF:US (greys). Try to pick up under 0. 07, 12 month hold, looking for 0.25 by Dec 2014. I hold it. Don't put the farm on it.
    Still using the Z10 but my bro got the Z30 and has easily sold me on it. I can upgrade in February so I'm already anxious for it cause it blows me away for several reasons. Who needs the querty?
    I think the 100 party should be in Paris so Super Fly has no excuse and we can drink lots of French champagne.
    Wishing you all a kickass 2014!

    Coin flip. I would agree that in a very broad sense, 50% seems about right, but in specifics it's just extremely difficult to predict things. 'the signal and the noise' is a great book that covers this phenomenon actually.

    LOL, I wish I had to pay these 75% ... so far away from my current situation ... (more than €1million/month salary)
    Still using the Z10 but my bro got the Z30 and has easily sold me on it. I can upgrade in February so I'm already anxious for it cause it blows me away for several reasons. Who needs the querty?
    Yup, totally agree. Makes me wonder why Chen is promoting QWERTY again ... They must have something really cool ... or cheap to promote in the next keyboard device. Or it'll be a ...flop.
    I think the 100 party should be in Paris so Super Fly has no excuse and we can drink lots of French champagne.
    Wishing you all a kickass 2014!
    Anytime for the $100 in Paris !
    Thank you and wishing you the exact same !

    Cheers
