    I apologize for posting a Benzinga story, but this one isn't too bad...
    BlackBerry's Revenue Decline: Here's Why Investors Shouldn't Worry - BlackBerry (NASDAQ:BBRY) | Benzinga

    BlackBerry Ltd's revenue fell 34 percent during the fiscal third quarter, suggesting that it could be a while before the company's turnaround provides meaningful results.

    This news scared off some investors initially. The stock fell more than 6 percent Friday morning before rebounding. Shares of BlackBerry were recently down less than 1 percent.

    Patience May Be The Key

    Analysts have a message for those who are eager to bail: be patient.

    "Sybase was not turned around in a quarter or a year," Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry told Benzinga. "There are only two companies that have successfully turned around. One is Apple and the other is Sybase. Remember: it took almost seven years for Apple to turn around and turn skeptics into believers."

    Sybase was struggling until BlackBerry CEO John Chen joined the company and turned things around. Chowdhry believes that he will do the same for BlackBerry, but warned that it is going to take time.

    "If somebody has invested in BlackBerry, they should not be looking at the earnings statements or the revenues or the earnings calls for the next seven years," said Chowdhry. "It is not a quarterly story. It is a huge undertaking -- an undertaking that is far bigger in scope than, say, Apple was. At least with Apple they had multiple products. With BlackBerry, you don't have multiple products, you have multiple services."

    Results Are Coming

    Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group, echoed Chowdhry's comments. He said that when a company is going through a turnaround, it is "transitioning revenue from the existing sources to new sources, and so there are going to be quarters that are down."

    Regardless, Enderle believes that BlackBerry is already showing signs of a successful turnaround. He pointed to the newly confirmed deal with Ford Motor Company to assist in developing SYNC 3.

    "We're seeing results, it's just that the new revenue sources will have to eclipse the old, and then you reach a steady state," Enderle told Benzinga. "The steady state may be lower than what you had expected for the company. But then the company is back in growth mode and will grow from there."

    BlackBerry hasn't completed its transition yet, so Enderle doesn't expect revenue to stabilize for a while.

    "They still have an awful lot of revenue coming from the old BlackBerry, and that's the stuff that's declining," he said.

    If You're A Short-Term Investor, Get Out

    Chowdhry does not recommend that short-term investors hold onto their shares of BlackBerry.

    "If you are a short-term investor, you should be very worried," Chowdhry warned. "If you don't have the stamina or appetite, you should not be owning BlackBerry."

    That did cross my mind actually, but didn't think posters had the ability to remove their own posts? Never tried myself so I wouldn't know entirely.

    I do have to say, you are right about the bunch being respectful. I noticed that, and have preferred to begin participating moreso in this thread.

    Right you are Austin re posting links. I Googled your suggestion, but his is all I came up with. There is zero reference to your comment on BlackBerry re "North Korea has threatened a cyber attack on BlackBerry's core customers "US citadels". This could be great or terrible depending on the outcome"

    U.S. seeks China's help against cyberattacks - CNN.com

    However, I am sure North Korea and many others have been trying to hack Obama's BlackBerry ... as far as I know no one has been successful
    Thanks for sharing! The key issues here is not help for security software or any advice in security, but to help prevent the attack from going through the system. Please read the quote below from the article .

    "North Korea's Internet traffic goes through China. President Barack Obama said Friday, "We've got no indication that North Korea was acting in conjunction with another country."

    Hey Back 2 black, I don't believe you can delete from the app, but if you are using there website and you choose to edit post, there is an option to delete.

    I also use stocks as my app. Would be nice if there was an excellent app for BlackBerry! Any programmer in this thread?
