    Why is BlackBerry going down over 2% after hours! Is there some news?

    In absence of news, I expected a climb up to $11.5ish in another 6 week period. But it's going down now.

    Where are you seeing after hours trading down 2%? I see down a whopping 0.2%. 2.22% lower than yesterdays close.

    If you own LNKD however, you have every right to be a tad worried with the sp. :|

    MOBL Q1 Results
    MobileIron cuts 2015 outlook as customers go subscription | ZDNet

    Summary: CEO Bob Tinker outlined the company's first quarter challenges, cuts the outlook and outlines what MobileIron plans to do about it.

    MobileIron cut its second quarter and 2015 outlook and signaled that there may not be an easy fix to its first quarter woes.

    When the company issued a profit warning last week, it said that the shortfall was due to big deals that didn't close and a shift to subscriptions over licensing.

    At the very least, that latter issue appears to be ongoing.

    For the second quarter, MobileIron said that revenue will be between $33.6 million and $34.6 million. Wall Street was expecting $37.85 million.

    As for 2015, MobileIron said revenue will be between $141.8 million and $151.8 million. Wall Street was expecting $160.3 million.

    MobileIron's first quarter net loss was 27 cents a share on revenue of $33.5 million.

    On a conference call with analysts, CEO Bob Tinker said he was "personally disappointed" with the first quarter results and said subscriptions were changing the sales mix more than expected. Tinker also addressed some of the questions that were swirling from a week ago. Tinker said:

    First, let me proactively several questions that we are sure you have. First, ASPs (average selling prices) for the quarter were flat quarter-over-quarter. Two, our head-to-head win rate in competitive remained above 66%. And three our range rates were in line with historical trends are of over 90%.

    Tinker added that the deals that shifted were with companies that were already MobileIron customers. "They did not place expand orders as expected," said Tinker. Some of those deals were closed and a few were lost as they are every quarter, he said.

    The overall theme from MobileIron is that it wasn't seeing customers defect as much as they were changing how they acquire the software.

    Darn. Seems Windows is getting media play time that with their app conversion programs for Android and iOS app, Windows Phones will replace PCs. Although I think Microsoft would probably fare as well as BlackBerry did with developers saying "uh no."

    Thorsten nailed it, BlackBerry was just too wounded to make it happen. Hope we fare better on IoT.

    Ok, last smash & bash I will post for MOBL, as I no longer consider them a threat:


    MobileIron's losses are not diminishing.

    Just had a quick look at MOBL's press release. For this quarter, GAAP loss per share was 27 cents on revenue of $33.5 million. At 76.99m shares (?), that means their total loss this quarter was $21.6 million -- or 64.5 cents on every dollar!
    No wonder they don't highlight this in clear language in their press release.

    Their non-GAAP loss was 21 cents on revenue of $32.7 million. Total non-GAAP loss was $16.17 million -- or 49.4 cents on every dollar.
    *
    For the coming quarter, non-GAAP revenue will (supposedly) increase slightly to $33 to $34 million, and "Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $49.5 million and $51.0 million."
    In the best case scenario, then, MOBL will lose $15.5m, or 45.6 cents on the dollar.*
    In the worst case, MOBL will lose $18m, or 54.5 cents on the dollar.*

    Ford CEO: We Won?t Take a Back Seat to Google and Apple | Re/code

    [...]

    Ford, like most car makers, is supporting both Google’s Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay, but those systems are only allowed to be a secondary interface to a primary navigation system.

    CTO Raj Nair said part of the reason behind that is ensuring that car buyers have choice.

    “We want to make sure you are not pushed into a decision on a $40,000 car based on your $200 smartphone,” Nair said.

    Ford, like the other car makers, also sees its infotainment system, known as SYNC, as a key selling point.

    “The data shows SYNC has been a significant draw in the showroom,” Nair said.

    Ford will look for ways SYNC can work more closely with the systems from Google and Apple. If a customer wants to use, say, Google’s maps but listen to Sirius radio through SYNC, Ford will make that possible, Nair said.

    The latest version of SYNC, due this summer, replaces Microsoft’s operating system with BlackBerry’s QNX. It also adds new apps, a more modern touchscreen and the ability to get updates over Wi-Fi.

    BlackBerry Ltd Devices And Solutions Receive Praise At The Milken Conference

    It was clearly evident that BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ: BBRY) products are here to stay at the just concluded Milken conference where a number of ideas touching on various fields of specialization and innovation were shared. The Canadian company was well represented at the conference with CEO, John Chen giving a keynote speech on healthcare as it became clear that BlackBerry devices are being used by many top executives.



    The nature of work carried out by some the power professionals in attendance justified the need to own a BlackBerry in the effort of staying productive as well as secure when communicating or sending files. The chairman of the Milken Institute Michael Milken could not hide his excitement of Blackberrys new line of products telling Chen I Love my new Blackberry Classic.

    Blackberry devices stay popular

    Milken is not the only executive to give BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) line of products a thumb of approval. The devices continue to be enamored by many people all in need of high-level security in the day to day communication engagements. Government employees are already switching back to these devices, which can guarantee the highest level of security especially in the process of sending and receiving emails.

    * To see a list of high yielding CDs go here. *

    During the conference, Chen also took the opportunity to announce that the company was working on a new set of phones, in an effort to give consumers a wide variety of choice to choose from while maintaining the highest level of security standards. The company is also enhancing its efforts in the handling of healthcare data with solutions aimed at according the data the highest level of security.

    Blackberry aims at healthcare

    Security remains critical to realizing the potential of healthcare data; NantHealth has already partnered with BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) with a view of gaining access to the well-established security system. The fact that there is no fix to any healthcare information compromised calls for the development of highly secure systems able to avert data breaches currently synonymous with credit cards.

    The level of security that BlackBerry offers has mostly been synonymous with heads of states and corporate leaders but the company is fast-tracking its efforts to ensure all people using the web have access to it. The company acknowledges that it has access to a huge amount of data that many people would wish to have access to, further affirming the need to accord it the highest level of privacy and security.

    Buckle your chin strap Citrix, we are coming for you:



    Citrix Systems Inc. could be the next technology company to attract an activist investor angling for a breakup.

    The $10.7 billion maker of software that lets employees access their workspace remotely posted first-quarter earnings that fell short of analysts estimates and lowered its guidance for the rest of the year. Higher costs and slower revenue growth have left Citrix with lower margins and a cheaper valuation than many of its U.S. peers, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

    So, I am a bit confused. Has anything been traced back to iPad itself? If not, why are we blaming a computing device (ipad) here?

    Posted via CB10
    I'm blaming a risk management failure (at both AA and the FAA) that basically TRUSTED the iPad /app combination WITHOUT a backup. So they're only NOW providing pdf versions of maps to the pilots? Why TF didn't they do this before?! The marketing of the use of consumer products for mission critical functionality like many of the Apple IBM ipad App solutions is obviously undermining proper risk management decisions. Basically, I'm not blaming Apple or the device here, I'm blaming people for losing their minds going gaga to use them for everything they interact with, and at the same time thinking that nothing can go wrong. I'm also suspecting, based on the evidence, that marketing decisions held more power than risk management decisions in this case. Do you really want to fly on an airline where that kind of thing happens? And when you look around, it's not just AA, and it's not just airlines...this kind of thing is happening everywhere.

    Well said. I said this earlier but it is becoming my anthem .... people should never mistake popularity for functionality. The world at large has gone bonkers IMO. I am convinced there is little understanding of tech even at tech levels all the way up to CIO's. They are basing decision on marketing and market share....smh

    MobileIron: Still Figuring it Out

    James E Faucette – Morgan Stanley

    Industry View: Cautious
    Stock Rating: Equal-weight
    Price Target: $7.00

    May 1, 2015 4:01 AM GMT

    After a deceleration in growth this quarter that implies MobileIron lost share in the EMM market, the company is still working through how to best regain momentum.

    Miss explanation still hazy. MOBL pre-announced Q1 results last week, revising revenue expectations down a little less than 10% as a result of seat expansion deals slipping and a mix shift towards cloud subscriptions that reduced upfront billings. While the company pointed out that sales metrics like ASPs, renewal rates and win rates stayed consistent with company expectations and trends, they did not give much insight into why deals slipped (eg. competitive losses or just timing slips) or why certain channels had been more successful in the quarter (causing the mix shift in purchase method). Additionally, the company struggled to explain how they lost share in the market (implied) if their win rates were still as high as they had been in the past (60%+).

    Lack of channel visibility clearly hurting. As we mentioned last week, the 1Q miss seems to make clear that the company has less channel visibility and control than thought. MOBL is all indirect sales, but they attempt to have direct sales participation in every deal, but the 1Q miss, particularly on increased monthly billing rather than perpetual licensing, leads them to believe that some customers were looking at bids from multiple vendors, and they chose the monthly billing instead. The lack of visibility into how deals are progressing, as well as how those deals will be constructed (e.g. perpetual, subscription) contributed to the quarterly shortfall and makes it difficult to forecast growth going forward.

    Concerns that competitive landscape is changing. While major competitive solutions don't breakout EMM product results, commentary from VMware, Citrix and Microsoft all indicated strong performance for their EMM solutions this quarter, leading MobileIron to admit that they likely lost share. We were particularly surprised to hear that Microsoft was appearing in more deals despite generally being cast as a small business solution just a quarter ago. The company is still dissecting reasons for lost or slipped deals, but we remain concerned that if customers are issuing more robust RFPs (as the company indicated they were), it introduces an opportunity for competitors to bundle their solutions with other products, reducing MobileIron's competitiveness. As a positive, the company announced that they had been selected as one of Apple's partners in developing mobile solutions for the iPad, a move which should improve competitiveness, but timing and relative impact are unknown.

    Reducing estimates. We are reducing our outlook for Q2 and the remainder of 2015 due to reduced sales visibility and increased investment needed to regain momentum. We are revising our Q2 and FY15 estimates down to $33.6mm / ($0.29) and $143.5mm / ($0.91) from $36.4mm / ($0.17) and $153.3mm / ($0.62). Our results now imply 13% revenue growth in 2015, a steep reduction from the 21% we estimated after the pre-announcement and the 34% we estimated before the pre-announcement.

    Reiterate EW and $7 price target. Given the miss comes within the first few quarters of being public, and the lack of transparency into the miss or the business model, we expect that it will be difficult for the company to trade above ~2.5x EV/16e rev for the next year. We think MOBL can be a share gainer, but their lack of control over distribution and competitive environment makes executing on that opportunity increasingly difficult. One potential positive outcome may be that the Board and VC investors may be more willing to consider selling the company at 3-4x revenue, even on reduced revenue growth expectations.

    My understanding is that this was the backup system and that they can't fly without having some sort of backup such as this.
