    Yep, thanks! I'm still in El Paso while my house I bought is in Colorado Springs but things are good. Been really busy with a Wounded Warrior project and a children's home so I haven't had time for BBRY in quite a while.

    BlackBerry Shipments Rise From Prior Quarter Under Chen

    BlackBerry Shipments Rise From Prior Quarter Under Chen - Bloomberg

    BlackBerry Ltd.’s smartphone shipments grew 15 percent in the second quarter from the prior period, recording their first sequential gain in a year as Chief Executive Officer John Chen’s turnaround plan takes hold.

    BlackBerry shipped 1.5 million units, research firm IDC said in a statement, compared with 1.3 million in the first quarter. The company’s share of the global smartphone market held steady at 0.5 percent as the overall market grew, IDC said.

    Under Chen, BlackBerry has shifted its focus from consumer phones to selling software-based services to businesses and governments. Chen said in July he would begin hiring new employees, marking the end of a restructuring phase that eliminated about a third of the workforce.

    The company’s smartphone business is still much diminished, with shipments down 78 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, according to IDC. Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry hasn’t increased its market share since the third quarter of 2009, Ramon Llamas, an analyst with IDC, said in an e-mail.

    BlackBerry last made a sequential gain in smartphone sales in the second quarter of 2013, the first full quarter of sales for its BlackBerry 10 operating system. Ultimately, the new software failed to lure back enough users who had already switched in droves to devices by Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Chen was hired in November to reverse the company’s fortunes after a failed buyout.

    To boost smartphone sales by appealing to business users, BlackBerry is set to release the ultrawide Passport and keyboard-equipped Classic later this year. In December, the company signed a five-year deal to outsource the manufacturing of its devices to Foxconn Technology Group, an Apple supplier and the world’s largest manufacturer of electronic products.

    Sorry for playing catch-up, but is the plan still to outsource the devices and BB sticks strictly to software or will BB always have a few devices of their own along with software?

    So far looks like BlackBerry maintains control of the top end devices but that's not really set as far as I know. Have you seen the Passport?

    Wow, that's interesting to hear a firm selling off an asset that's about to go up a few dollars. I just saw that BBRY six month target is $12.28 and one year target is $13.58. First resistance right now is supposed to be $10.51 and then $11.63.

    Not sure when they got on this train but it is up pretty large over the last seven months.

    To me what matters the most is that Fairfax didn't sell a single share as of 06/30/2014.

    Is this a valid pennant?
    Hi Dimi:

    Here's my take. It could be a pennant, the volume trend does appear to support the probability. And this would be bearish, because it is in a downtrend. Considering that this is a monthly chart, I would look into two possibilities based on key prices.

    The first one is a descending triangle (blue lines) based on the key price of $6.22 occurred on September 2012, and December 2013. These two forms the two bottom, and the top line is formed with the peak in July 2014 at $11.65, and peak of January 2013 at $18.32. This is bearish. To complete this pattern, the price would need to go back to the $6.2x range, and crash. I don't think any of us would like to see that.

    The second one is an ascending triangle (pink lines) based on the key price of $11.65 occurred on July 2014, and September 2013. These two occurrences form the top line, and the bottom line is formed with the higher lows from December 2013. This pattern is bullish. To complete this pattern, the price has support around $8.10 to $9.25 until December 2014, and has to break out above $11.65.

    Which one is more valid? Just remember the chart is a map, the journey on the map is based on how the company is doing.

    Basically, it seems the stock will go up or down or stay the same, depending on how the company does over the next several months.

    Good morning gang!

    Well I'm still holding a few shares. I'm positive this company will not only succeed but become the #1 world wide accepted standard for secure software. Just have to finish cleaning up last years stumbling blocks and we're all good. Public's view of Blackberry is improving and seeing it as a software corporation with a few phones instead of a phone corporation with some software.

    Hope everyone has a great Friday!
