    Can anyone say "short squeeze"?
    Not even close. They didn't cover when it was at $18. What makes you think they are now?

    I have to stop reading BBRY. I get tempted , then I buy, then I lose, then I sell. I am going long in Johnson & Johnson.
    Try buy and hold.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the last 2 weeks of losses get erased in a single day of trading.

    Would be a real kick in the nads to those shorting.

    what a great run so far today! anyone care to guess (or back with charts) where we are going the rest of the day?

    my trigger finger itched when it hit +3% to sell before it had an afternoon dump. didnt though, and am happy of it! Guess the question is, will we see a 10% gain today, or rather will it slowly(or quickly) dump moswt of the gains during the afternoon to close at only 1-2% gain?

    I doubt we see anything close to 10% on no news. The more likely scenario is the stock corrects itself and ends 2-4% above the open.

    Both the 5-DMA and the 50-DMA are coming down. I'd like to see us stay above the 5 and then perhaps we can test the 50 on Friday.

    There is shorting at different levels.

    The day traders - they're looking to open a position and lcose it same day. You can be sure that with this jump in price, they're piling on. *some* of those probably are in the red if they got on early today, but the day isn't over.

    Swing traders - they'll sell short and hold for a few days, up to a few weeks, based on where they expect the trend to go. They're not hurting - many of them would have shorted in the 14s and are probably considering covering now, but are waiting.
    .
    Both of the above might buy from hundreds to tens of thousands of shares.

    Large, long-term shorts. They buy huge blocks and hold them for as long as it takes. Some of them may have shorted at $7 waiting for bankruptcy - they're certainly not going to sell based on these daily fluctuations as they're rather far in the red right now and are hoping to recover. Others may have shorted at $75 or higher. If they're still bearish, they have little to lose by waiting for BBRY to tank even further. If it doesn't tank, then many of them are still going to be in the green.

    In any case - a lot has to happen before they're shaken loose.

    I'd love to know the current breakdown of long-term short positions, but there's no reporting requirement (that I know of).

    I'm sure there are a lot of shades in between that I'm not aware of...

    I do buy and hold with my mainly blue chip portfolio but if the value of the stock is drops below the 60 day SMA for over two weeks it is time to sell. ( see Appl for example)

    Not sure about BB long. If they would come up with a low end strategy other than just staying the course with the Curve I would consider it. The trouble all phone manufacturers have is that soon enough the phone will just be a low margin commodity. That is why I would love to see BB license BB10 out to Chinese manufacturers and just manufacture very high end phones. At the very least, they need a $200 touch screen BB10 model - ASAP.

    I will say this about low-cost licensing in the short term: BBRY so far has given no indication to its developers that it will be support screen resolutions other than 720x720 or 1280x768(720 future).

    A low end model with lower screen resolution would be a big deal to app developers - we'll need lead time to update our applications. That means that if it's going to happen, we'll see our first hints in updated UI guidelines I suspect...

    I think you missed the point of the post. I believe his point was that it was not a coordinated launch date to create buzz like other companies do. Having the various carriers roll it out on different dates, in his view, a negative. Not sure if I agree with him, but I don't think he is making a too early v too late argument.

    FROM ARTICLE:

    I suppose if BlackBerry had a wealth of clout in the form of customer demand and product loyalty then it could intimidate all the big, bad American carriers into line. Sadly that's not the case judging from the now staggered Z10 rollout, first AT&T then T-Mobile and Verizon following at a later date. This cellular fragmentation if you will is likely the first of many Snafus in the eventual, and unavoidable downfall of BlackBerry.

    "An early AT&T launch of BlackBerry's touchscreen phone are more signs of impending doom.".... seriously?!?!?! What fine logic. I would have laughed at the article as you, but I kind of feel sorry for the author of the article if he is this stvpid!

    The S3 definitely launched on different days for US carriers, and apparently it did fine.

    I read the article and Brian Bennett wasn’t all wrong. He was way off by asserting that Blackberry has an inevitable downfall, but his comment on the staggered release wasn’t incorrect in my opinion. There is a method and means to leave your questions and comments on those article websites if you’d like to challenge the analyst in question.

    I personally saw the "point" of the article... but it reeks of shorts grapsing at straws, at best. Why in the world would BB hold back any US carrier in order to coordinate a unified launch? U.S. customers have waited long enough and if people found out that BB purposely held off certain carriers out of the gate for this reason, it would be a negative, not a positive.

    It'll be interesting to get a browser comparison between the Z10 and the S4.

    The Z10 beats the S3, which has a quad core cpu. It'll be interesting to see the disparity that is developing if can still come close to matching up against the 8-core S4.

    It'll speak volumes about how each OS deals with additional cpus, and which offers the more efficient and therefore higher performing paradigm.

    There isn't, but if you go back though the short interest reports over the past couple years, you can get an idea.

    The short interest reported April 30/2012 was 53M. So there are at least 80M shorts that are in at a relatively low price.

    I seriously doubt this guy is short or doing the biding of any shorts. He has a opinion. As noted, I am not sure I agree with him, I just don't see a conspiracy here.

    I do think part of his argument is correct and one I have posted about and that is BBRY's lack of clout or seemingly any bargaining power whatsoever. How they let the US launch date get pushed so far beyond the Super Bowl ad and New York City launch event is mind boggling to me. I don't think it will be the end of BBRY bu tit very puzzling to me.
