    Nice to read a bullish article but he expects 0.8 Million sold Z3 in Q1.
    This number seems far too high, if you ask me. I hope I'm wrong...
    At its peak sales BlackBerry was selling 600 k units per quarter in Indonesia. More recently that number has been closer to 100 k per quarter. To sell 800 k Z3's in less than a month would be in the category of a miracle.

    Something we could all use of course, but realistically?

    Wells Fargo Has 'Slightly Positive Bias' On BlackBerry | Benzinga

    Shares of BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY) are trending slightly higher after Wells Fargo said they have a slightly positive bias into earnings. The EPS estimate was changed from a $0.25 loss to a $0.20 loss.

    Analyst Maynard Um writes, “While we remain encouraged by the early moves of CEO John Chen and expect improvements in cash flow, we believe the transition may be bumpy (consumer churn, sentiment from new Amazon & Apple smartphones, lower annual revenue of a BES10/12 sub vs a BES 5 sub).”

    Specifically, Wells Fargo sees the sale of Canadian real estate and Z3 hardware sales as improving financials.

    Maynard Um has a $8.50 to $9.50 valuation range on BlackBerry, based on a one times forward EV/Sales ratio.

    Well, if true, it certainly gives some insight into why the media may not have any sympathy for BlackBerry. To be honest, could you blame them? What kind of business goes out of its way to **** off or alienate the press? At least we do now seem to have a CEO who isn't so foolish.

    All that matters really is whether or not BlackBerry developed a bad relationship with the media. I don't personally care who was to blame. What's of interest is whether the media had reason, good or bad, for being indifferent or hostile to BlackBerry.

    it sounds to me like a bunch of reporters feel that the abrasive personality of one man and his refusal to bend over to the whims of a less than well intentioned media deserves eternal villification by an entire industry. Sour grapes because it was hard to get an interview? That's weak. Like the guy who cant get any attention from the new hot babe so he goes off on a decade long killing spree. Canadian Journalists, or at least the ones mentioned in this article, sure seem to have an overblown sense of entitlement. It must suck severely to be a new journalist ready to inform the world and suddenly find out that you have to write stories with a pre selected bias. Journalistic integrity is probably the one thing that can keep a business paper afloat these days. Apparently Globe and Mail felt it was justified in throwing all that to the wayside.

    further thoughts Have you ever tried to get an interview with Apple execs. Also did you spare a thought for investors with the negative fib spin and by that I mean deliberately false information to kill and damage the brand?
    And as for journalists ever been on the receiving end of the behaviour you complain about? how many sources did you bully. Also perhaps the company had alot of challenges to manage that had a higher priority.
    Medias coverage has been to say the least dumb. really dumb re the intricacies of the business. And to get your own back how many innocent bystanders did you harm....lots and lots and lots.

    I'll defer that question/answer to JLagoon, he has been promoting the structure for a few months now, so we'll let him publish another one of his great charts.

    I see a basic chart pattern where we have been sliding to lower highs over the past 1 1/2 years, followed by a bottom and a change in direction.

    Here's a quick chart for you:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-chart-june-16-2014.png

    Starting back in early 2013, we hit $ 18.32/shr and we have been dropping every since then. Today we are at the bottom of this downward cycle and we are trying to establish a set of higher lows and to reclaim the 50-dma again. Last week we touched the 50-dma and sold off as one would expect. It is now a case of waiting out the Q1 numbers this week to determine where we go from here.

    I don't expect any surprises, I see revenue dropping again by only < 5%, I see 350,000 Z3 handsets sold at the most and I see Enterprise bottoming out here. The key story is Enterprise, they are going after that sector of the business and I suspect they are regaining customers this time around. For me that will be the best scenario possible. I see hardware coming back to BlackBerry within 2 more quarters but by then, the stock should have placed a bottom in on the charts and already moving higher.

    I have to admit to being very excited about this ER, CHEN is acting like someone who knows something is developing now, a trend of sorts and that's just what the doctor has ordered here to get BBRY back on its feet again. GL!

    350,000 Z3s, coupled with the existing enterprise channel sales of Z10s, Q10s and Z30s could be a much nicer number than last quarter.

    Also, my Thunderclap campaign is now fully supported. www.thunderclap.it/projects/12456

    I also had a good chat with a researcher who's giving a talk on DCA in Baltimore on Friday, so that should spike some definite interest.

    Doesn't matter. They just need to have their BB10 sales surpass the BB7 sales. They'll have to sell upwards of 2 million BB10 devices to show decent quarterly growth.

    I would be interested in the Z3 number which matters imo, if they provide a breakdown of BB10 handset sales.

    This was 'Mikes' second article about some good things to say about BlackBerry after his downer post back when.
    I wonder if he will try again when the 'Classic' emerges?

    I am expecting a more or less similar results to last ER. Too bad we can't include the latest news with the Z3, etc. In this ER, because of the cutoff, or am I wrong about that?
    Can we include the total Z3 sales, as some seem to be suggesting?

    Hi Sllipstream, Morgan, and all:

    Here are my updated BBRY charts. Things are looking good so far. I like how the RSI on the daily chart rises steadily with a clear lower high pattern, instead of moving radically.

    Daily chart with inverse head and shoulders pattern (developed for almost 1 year). It appears to be intact. The line E (navy blue) is the uptrend line that has been acting as support. As long as the SP doesn't go below this line, then I consider the pattern intact. I think, we are in the beginning of the next pattern that may lead us to $16 - $17. This does not happen in a short period of time. I estimate 3 months perhaps a bit longer. And the supporting items on this are what Blackberry is doing with PR / media control, and who is running the company.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-screen-shot-2014-06-16-10.18.06-pm.jpg

    Daily chart with a closer look. The SP broke MA50, but hasn't broken MA200 yet; soon hopefully. We can see how it couldn't punch through MA200 in this chart. Today, earlier, the SP tried to trade in the lower range of yesterday, but managed to close $0.01 near the high at $7.93. This results in a hammer candle. It shows that buying pressure prevailed. I reckon, some shorts are covering just in preparation for the ER.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-screen-shot-2014-06-16-10.37.53-pm.jpg

    Weekly chart. This weekly chart shows that we are about to cross to the positive territory of MACD (above 0), after spending quite a long period of time in the down cycle. The alignment of the daily chart and weekly chart is a good indication. Most of the time, both are out of alignment.
