    Interesting, that last paragraph about Movirtu. They're already looking at offering it! I think that will be a huge seller.

    ?A year ago BlackBerry was defensive. We?re not defensive any more. People like Airwatch, Mobile Iron or Good should thank us that we were asleep at the wheel a few years ago and that allowed them to build their companies. That party?s over.?

    So should MobileNations launch a new website called MDMCentral to facilitate interest in mobile device management? I don't quite understand how the Crackberry community benefits Blackberry is focused on service providers first and hardware/platform a distant second. They aren't talking about competing with Apple, Google, or Microsoft, anymore?

    Excellent find, wojciechp. Thank you. If you don't mind, I think this one is worth quoting in extenso:

    Painting a target on the competition

    Were coming for our competitors is the warning BlackBerrys President of Global Enterprise Services, John Sims has for the marketplace in an interview last month.

    Sims laid out how BlackBerrys future lies in managing big data, providing collaboration tools and securing the internet of things. In the short term however, the company needs emerging markets to keep its mobile handset market going.

    In an interview last month on Australias Gold Coast at the Gartner Symposium, Sims laid out some of BlackBerrys vision of the companys future.

    Securing the endpoints

    The key product is the BlackBerry Enterprise Services which Sims sees as providing the endpoint security for corporate mobile devices and for the internet of things, something that ties into the companys QNX investment.

    For the moment though its handsets are a key part of the companys immediate future and Sims sees the latent demand from lapsed BlackBerry as essential to success, there are tens of millions of BlackBerry users who are still sitting on their old handsets.

    The classic, when it comes along is targeted at that market. We know people are waiting When we went from the Gold to the Q10, too much changed.

    You had to go from the BBOS to the BlackBerry 10 and thats a big change, we changed the keyboard, we took away shortcuts and we changed too much at the same time. With the Classic were almost doing a retrofit.

    With the recently released Passport smartphone, Sims says the company is struggling to keep up with demand, The Passport has done well, he said. The problem with it is us, not demand. Its a supply issue not a demand issue.

    A week after that interview, BlackBerry announced the company would give Canadian buyers of the Passport subsidies of $600. How that ties into the narrative of a popular device isnt quite clear.

    Sims hopes the release of the Classic wont suffer from supply problems, we think is going to be more popular so we can be sure when it comes out well be able to get that into the market in sufficient quantities to meet demand.

    Discovering emerging markets

    The other hope for BlackBerrys handset business lies in developing markets, Latin America is very important, Sims says. Indias very important and then there are number of important South East Asian markets.

    Part of that emerging market strategy is tied into selling mid priced smartphones into the market, Sims says. People will say the Z3 is a low end device, if you go visit Indonesia the Z3 is not a low end device. Its a middle market device.

    Xiaomi is doing the low end devices at less than a hundred bucks and were doing a device at around $170. So were focused on the middle market, people who are professionals or aspiring professionals.

    With those people in those markets we want to establish the BlackBerry brand as something they are comfortable with, says Sims in outlining how he sees getting the handsets into business people as being the driver for the companys other services and products.

    Struggling with China

    China remains an enigma for BlackBerry however, in the last couple of years we havent focused on China, its a huge market and its hard for external parties to be successful on their own. Local partnerships are important.

    John Chen (BlackBerrys CEO) was recently in China and met with some of the local partners to talk about the possibilities of the future. Its very preliminary and theres nothing of any substance there yet but it is on our horizon that weve got to have something in the China Market.

    Were coming for you

    Despite the struggles BlackBerry has with its handset business, Sims is defiant about the companys position in the endpoint security market.

    Ultimately it becomes a question of scale, weve got scale because we have a global network. None of the other EMM vendors Good, Mobile Iron or Airwatch none of them have the Big Data requirements that we have.

    A year ago BlackBerry was defensive. Were not defensive any more. People like Airwatch, Mobile Iron or Good should thank us that we were asleep at the wheel a few years ago and that allowed them to build their companies. That partys over.

    Were coming after them. We have targets painted on each of those companies and as we execute our enterprise strategy were coming after them. If I was them Id be feeling the breathing on the back of the neck.

    For BlackBerry the future lies in security services and the internet of things, though for the short term the companys cash flow and market position depends upon sales of its handsets.

    As the interview with John Sims shows, the companys success depends upon a few key assumptions coming true; thats a high risk market.

    I thought I would throw up another chart showing the last two months trading and this weeks' forming of what might be a H&S:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-dec-12-2014.png

    This is a very simple chart that shows us a downtrend line from the recent high to where we are today. As volume declines we have worked our way to either side of the 50-dma. The trending line that I use for short-term movement in a stock is its 3-ema and it is currently at $ 10.20 or slightly below the 50-dma. And so we are capped just below this price range and $ 10.00 is support here. Now, in the past hour, the DOW has dropped from - 65 pts to - 135 pts and the stock has bounced off its $ 10.00 support and run to resistance at the 3-ema. There is a battle brewing here, and I'm not convinced that we are about to sell-off and start a new leg down this far apart from the Q3 drivers. Today is an important day, the close is important because the support has to hold while oil and the general market, not to mention currencies are getting their heads handed to them. The drop in oil is not healthy for the stock market when it occurs this quickly. So far, oil is not affecting the price of Gold, but if you see Gold start to lose ground, the market will see other investments give up their gains to support losses.

    Against this back drop, BBRY isn't performing bad at all in here. Today's close is an important one relative to the markets as a whole. I personally see a number of stocks showing weakness on extremely light volume and that is a relative strength positive when this market finally bottoms out, BBRY looks like that case too. Makes me think we are seeing a false chart pattern in the making here.

    HALO is now my largest holding, I'm adding to my position as well down here. Management bought above us and they have set their stock options above us, they have fast tracking from the FDA now, a fantastic year so far, and, they stated that a deal with a large pharma may close before the end of this year. I'm not sure what else an investor needs at this point. The same guys, the Baker Brothers, hold this one as well as ACAD and TGTX and have a look at those if you need a refresher in what can happen to biotech stocks. Best of luck to you!

    This makes me sad. It seems so hard to believe that not too long ago we were over $12 a share with good news strong support and successful product releases.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-img_20141212_114121.png

    I understand that the markets will fluctuate and when the market as a whole is diving most stocks will follow. But I have to wonder if there was not more that BlackBerry could do to protect their share holders interests in this volatile time.

    I do believe that we will see a beat on our ER on the 19th. If not a very solid performance right at expectations, either of which I expect to bode well for our SP as most seem to want this company to fail. Just pains me to see it get tooled over so badly when the company is in fact doing very well currently and sitting in a position to do even better than expected.

Hopefully we hear news soon on both these jewels BBRY and HALO by end of year! looking at TGTX I missed the second rally loll this is what I get for sleeping in -_-

    Ha! I hear you! I have missed out on some huge plays too. The one thing I hate about HALO, the only one thing, is, the price of the stock. This one should be trading sideways at $ 14.00 - $ 16.00 but there is a 20 MM share short position in it, one that is clearly holding it back. The market is a strange animal, it awards small numbers of stocks for far too long before it moves onto the next play. Our job is to study the company when no one wants it and be ready for that big cycle to come. We do a huge amount of research on BBRY, we buy early, and we wait, when its time comes, you and I will be amazed at how high it can go! It won't make any sense at all by any analytical benchmark. Have a look at TGTX, it is on a run with a chart pattern you can only dream of. The same thing happened to ACAD, I bought a large block of that one for around $ 1.00 and waited. Today, with my wife owning 25,000 shares at $ .71/shr, I never lose sleep at night thinking she is taking out a big insurance policy on me and feeding me poison! LOL That girl is rich and believes I'll do it again for her so I feel like I'm safe for now. (She watches too many of those murder shows for my comfort, just sayin').

    When you hit a winner, there is only one problem you have before you, that is to figure out how crazy high the stock can be over-valued before you HAVE to get out. That's a nice problem to have my friend. HALO and BBRY, and, many others are que'd for a run, you just have to be patient and wait your turn. HALO is no different than ACAD or TGTX but its time is not here yet. Let the Baker Bros finish what they started and move to the next play.

    It's not just BlackBerry, the entire smartPHONE industry is going to become a minor thing; it's already happening. As low end Androids and Chinese manufacturers flood the market, the only manufacturer that is getting away with charging a premium is Apple (but that won't last). BlackBerry lost that game (and the billions that came from it).

    In a few years, smartphones will be commoditised like cars, where everyone buys an economical carbon copy that gets the job done (Civic, Camry, etc). There will be a few premium manufacturers (Blackberry/Porsche, Vertu, maybe a few Samsung, LGs) for enthusiasts and wealthy folks (BMW, Ferrari, Bugatti).

    BlackBerry and many others are betting on the future that arises from all of our machines having the capabilites of our phones, and the phone just being an access point. In this future, the money and notoriety will be the network that connects the devices securely!! and collects/processes data very rapidly to create seamless automation.

    In this future, Apple, Google and Microsoft will be spending billions to compete with BlackBerry on their homefield.

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) News Analysis: Credit Suisse Retains Underperform Rating On Blackberry

    Credit Suisse Bearish On Blackberry Ltd (BBRY)

    Credit Suisse doesn’t see much potential in Blackberry’s Services business and gave the company an Underperform rating with a meager target price of $6

    By: MICHEAL KAUFMAN
    Published: Dec 12, 2014 at 11:50 am EST

    Yesterday, Credit Suisse Group AG (ADR) (NYSE:CS) analyst Kulbinder Garcha maintained an Underperform rating on BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) with a $6 price target, expressing his lack of faith the Canada-based company’s Services segment.

    Mr. Garcha expects Blackberry’s 3QFY15 revenues at $942.6 million – down 21% year-over-year. He foresees gross margins of 40.5%, and a loss per share (LPS) of 10 cents for the quarter. Consensus estimates for revenues and LPS are $960 million and five cents, respectively.

    Moreover, Mr. Garcha predicts Blackberry’s 3QFY15 free cash flow (FCF) will be $13.7 million, compared to last quarter’s $74 million.

    Credit Suisse’s report said, “We maintain that the accelerating decline of services revenue (~-17% qoq) and the limited visibility of MDM remains the principal risk to the BBRY turnaround. As a result, we reiterate our Underperform rating with a TP of $6."

    The firm believes the services platform will be affected by possible headwinds such as:

    1) Declining user base.

    2) Reduction in average revenue per unit (ARPU).

    3) Difficulty in ramping up services, as monetizing “EZ Pass remains difficult in a competitive MDM market environment.”

    Commenting on the company’s Hardware business, Mr. Garcha said this segment posted positive figures for the first time in five quarters, which was largely due to an efficient supply chain, emphasis on margins, and improved distribution.
