    You have to realise that the DOW Jones is below its 50-dma today, not a good sign for any stock in the market.

    This isn't just about BBRY here.

    Edit: Look at APPL, they came out with the best watch ever and the stock is getting dropped too. Hard to find a positive stock today. ACAD is up, SPHS is up a penny, that's all that I can see in my list.
    Maybe the DOW is down BECAUSE of apple??? After all its an over priced watch and a company that hasn't really created anything truly innovative in years. Most people I know with iphones are willing to look at other phones when contract is up. I convinced my gf to try BlackBerry. But many want to try Samsung phones. Just saying Apple isn't what it once was and unless things change they might go the way of BlackBerry.

    Goes to show what power a quality CEO (RIP Mr. Jobs) can have on a company. Time for BlackBerry users/investors/etc. to reap the rewards of a quality CEO in Mr. Chen.

    Back in 2013 silence on hardware was needed to just let BlackBerry do their thing and see what comes of it. He was negative on hardware and that just added to all the other bearish analysts and bloggers dissing BlackBerry since it was en vogue. Essentially, he participated in creating a self fullfilling phophesy. Diss the hardware and BlackBerry would be forced to change course to software and exit hardware.

    Only it almost killed BlackBerry. So he wasn't on the "pro" or "defending" BlackBerry side in my book.

    BlackBerry itself needed to push the current enterprise strategy much faster and more aggressively than they did, rather than trying to be a consumer oriented company. It's BlackBerry itself that created the self-fulfilling prophesy, unfortunately. Chen is the only recent CEO that seems to have understood this...strength in enterprise is needed to kill the FUD

    Seems we have a different definition of "self-fulfilling prophesy."

    Go back to 2012/2013... the trend back then was all about BYOD and consumerization of IT. BlackBerry made the decision to pursue consumers to get device sales back up as that was the trend.

    Could BlackBerry have first gone after enterprise? Sure. But remember that BES10 didn't come out until summer/fall 2013. The product simply wasn't ready at BB10 launch in Jan 2013. Remember also that the bears started their attack on BlackBerry DURING the BB10 launch event. By the time BES10 launched, BlackBerry was already at the brink of imploding.

    How many enterprises were willing to back BlackBerry by summer 2013? Very few. Heck even the US DoD announced that they needed to diversify AWAY from being 100% dependent on ONE vendor (BlackBerry) for mobile phones.

    Like I said before, I acknowledge and agree that BlackBerry made A LOT of mistakes leading up to the BB10 launch and they should've gone to market with a different CEO. But the constant pounding BlackBerry took from bloggers, analysts, 3rd party developer neglect, and supposed "CrackBerry fans" made a bad situation worse.

    I firmly believe that BlackBerry would not be around today if it weren't for the Board's dogged determination to focus on security and realizing that BlackBerry was stronger as ONE company rather than piecemeal as analysts insisted. THAT is why I invest in this company. Call me a dreamer, but I want BlackBerry to rise and give everyone the big middle finger that they deserve.

    Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and others openly admit to conflict of interests while downgrading / upgrading stocks. Right now, they are in bed with Mobile Iron, Good etc.

    So...here is an idea: Mobile Iron, Good etc are too small even when compared to down-and-beaten BlackBerry. So, how about John Chen throwing some business the way of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanely etc? Logic would dictate that these shameless pricks would then start pumping BBRY at the cost of Mobile Iron, Good etc? Conflict of interest be damned.

    We'd start seeing upgrades and bullish research notes from Simona Jankowaski and others!

    I personally just bought some 12 jan 2017 calls mainly because if bbry is successful in there turnaround the SP will be much higher the 13.63 in jan 2017.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-march-11-2015.png

    As you can see, we dipped down first thing this morning to test the blue support line, it held no problem, now, we should start the rebuilding process and make higher highs throughout the day. The norm is to test the support and start building for another rally here and so far we are doing that. By Friday, assuming the DOW Jones doesn't take a dump by another 330 pts., we should be on our way again.

    Well, I'm not really trying to start a debate, but in my opinion the consumer strategy was already too late, and BES10 wasn't ready because they weren't focused on enterprise enough from the get go. For years, they resisted, rather than embraced, BYOD. They needed to have a clear transition plan for all the bb07 shops and also for the revenue losses that were inevitably going to come from lost bb07 fees. It was suicidal to go directly up against Apple and Google, and not launch BES10 together with bb10 (with a clear road map for BES12). Enterprise has always been BlackBerry's core market. These are my opinions, and it's water under the bridge, but I come from K-W and I've been watching this company since they sold keyboard pagers. The Bold was the penultimate Bb07 device, but the company already should have been going full tilt into the transition I'm describing, while that device was selling strong. Until Chen arrived, leadership has been absent or off-track. Consumers will come along for the ride when BlackBerry churns out good stuff. And they always do. In the meantime, we all get to buy shares at a steal.
