    Well if the markets are really thinking 6 months ahead, it shouldn't really make a difference. This was a known event several months ago, and the events of the past month leading up to 6/30 only made it clearer.

    Hope this puts an end to the concept that the markets look that far ahead. The broad market only looks 1 quarter ahead at most. The astute investors may be looking out longer term.

    Now. Focus on China. Greece is a distraction IMHO (uneducated by the way).

    No, unfortunately! But, no doubt about its use:

    QNX Software Systems is the official realtime OS partner for the Solar Impulse team, and the plane uses the QNX Neutrino OS for several control and data communication functions.
    On Q: They did it! Solar Impulse team makes non-stop flight from Japan to Hawaii

    So, rookie question of the day then:

    If the experts are saying that we are overdue for a 'crash', then does it stand to reason that if we are in free-fall, like you say, is the crash still likely?

    Structural (normal, growth, call it as you like) debt for Greece : +/- €30Bil.
    Deficit is 12X more.
    Total in the $400Bil.

    1)No one is going to sit on it and say 'never mind'.

    But the regulations are a major concern, as BCE (EU central bank) is not supposed to help insolvable banks ... and that's the scenario today. Liquidity will dry and that's operational nightmare.
    But I'm sure rules will meet their maximum elasticity pretty soon, due to 1)

    Hey M8!
    When do you think it'll be a good entry point back into the stock? I see that due to the news it seems it will stay above $20 for sure now and it is just working off the high RSI. With the earnings coming up next month should we try to get back into the stock around the $21 mark? Also as news trump TA how would you know when regular TA is to be used again is there any clear indicator when the stock is no longer moving based on news again?

    PS. Sorry wasnt too sure how to word it so i hope it makes sense

    Nico Rosberg on the future of F1, drones, his Bose sound system and BlackBerry | T3

    Let’s talk tech: which phone are you using at the moment?

    A BlackBerry Passport.

    We’ve seen mixed reactions to that phone – what is it that you like about it?

    I like the keyboard especially. It’s a big advantage over all the other phones. And I do all my work on the phone - I don’t have my computer with me – it’s very useful for that.

    Which feature do you use day to day?

    I use BBM to communicate with the team, as everyone has a BlackBerry so that makes it easy. I like that the Hub has everything in one place, it’s easy, plus battery life is good.

    Is it something you use socially? Or just with the team?

    Yeah, I use it socially.

    So do you have a lot of friends on BBM?

    Some of them, maybe 50% – especially the ones who are working in companies, they all have it. The ones that work in banks and companies, they all have BlackBerrys.

    What about the other F1 drivers?

    Mostly iPhones.

Basically, one must manage the "message" closely (from what is in the Form 6-K to every other bit of information) and not give the numerous fools out there free rein by being too passive and letting them determine the image that your company projects...

    Firms Analyze Tweets to Gauge Stock Sentiment - WSJ

    Firms Analyze Tweets to Gauge Stock Sentiment
    Parsing Twitter and others to discern subtle trends is a new frontier

    Every day, iSentium LLC, a little-known Florida-based technology company, analyzes one million tweets from traders, investors and market commentators to try to find out whether sentiment for a particular stock is generally high or low.

    The answer is simple: either a +1 or a -1 for each stock. Yet a handful of banks, hedge-fund firms and high-frequency traders have signed up for the daily indicator, at a cost of $15,000 per month per stock symbol.

    ISentium and several other “sentiment analysis” startups are trying to tap Wall Street’s growing desire to harness the world’s vast amount of data to make predictions about the movements of stocks and other securities and derivatives.

    Traders and certain investors for years have subscribed to products from companies such as Dataminr Inc. that help them scan Twitter and other social media to detect events. But the ability to parse those posts to discern subtle trends is a new frontier.

    TheySay Ltd., co-founded by a professor of computational linguistics at Oxford University in the U.K., has started selling its sentiment-analysis products to research analysts, banks and hedge funds, executives at TheySay noted. There are a host of others, including PsychSignal, Guidewave Consulting and Tashtego LLC, a Boston-based asset manager that plans to launch a sentiment-driven fund later this year.

    “What we’re telling you is what does the mob or the crowd say today,” said Gautham Sastri, president and chief executive of iSentium. “Twitter is a big pipeline of emotion and we’re providing a snapshot.”

    The idea of using Twitter as an investing guide has plenty of skeptics, with some pointing to the failure of $40 million Derwent Capital Markets. The investment firm, which made bets based on Twitter analysis, closed after just a month of trading in 2012.

    Executives from iSentium and other firms say Twitter can provide a useful signal to investors but generally shouldn’t be relied on as the sole reason to make an investment.

    ISentium said it has 10 clients paying on a monthly basis. They include large quantitative hedge funds, which use computers to find statistical relationships between data that help predict price movements, as well as traditional hedge funds, family offices and high-frequency-trading firms that use the indicators for market-making strategies.

    The company’s system breaks down sentences into their key components and analyzes adjectives and actions associated with subjects mentioned in tweets, as well as their location in sentences, among other factors.

    It also can identify situations where a person may convey both a negative and a positive in a single utterance.

    For instance, on June 24 activist investor Carl Icahn sent the following tweet about Netflix Inc. and Apple Inc.: “Sold last of our $NFLX today. Believe $AAPL currently represents same opportunity we stated NFLX several years ago.”

    Instead of giving it a score of zero, a negative canceling out a positive, iSentium’s system created a -65 sentiment score for Netflix and a +57 score for Apple, the company said. After aggregating data from other Twitter users discussing those companies that day, iSentium came up with an overall indicator of -1 for both companies. The positive sentiment of Mr. Icahn wasn’t enough to change the overall signal, according to the company.

    Social-media-analytics companies use different techniques to drive market insights. TheySay co-founder Stephen Pulman, a professor at Oxford, said that what sets the U.K.-based company apart is a focus on “compositionality,” a principle that examines not only the meaning of words but their arrangement in relation to each other.

    “Words in isolation may have a positive or negative sentiment but once you put them together they can often mean something else,” Mr. Pulman said.

    PsychSignal employed several individuals with Ph.D.s in psychology to create an engine that can track 12 different emotions, including anger, sadness and love. Clients receive two scores—bullishness and bearishness—and the company plans on introducing more in the coming months.

    In addition to popular websites like Twitter and Stocktwits, PsychSignal’s universe of social media data also covers information shared on private chat rooms frequented by traders, said founder James Crane-Baker, giving their inputs more of a trading focus.

    Twitter Inc. itself also sells data directly to a range of businesses, including hedge funds and banks, a person familiar with its sales said. Some of those buyers have data scientists who conduct their own analysis of tweets, including of sentiment around companies, the person said.

    Twitter also signed an agreement with International Business Machines Corp. granting the computer company access to the full “fire hose” of tweets sent from around the world every day.

    IBM said the applications went beyond predicting moves in the markets. Its analysts were finding ways to help large banks and retailers create better products and services for their customers.

    Mutual funds also are exploring such tools.

    Franklin Templeton Inc. has hosted two conferences for fund managers, including in March of this year, to meet with companies that provide novel data sets and analytic tools. A session on social media was titled: “Is it Signal or Noise? Determining Sentiment and Identifying Trends.”

    Franklin Templeton said it came to a major realization when Russia annexed the Ukrainian territory of Crimea in March 2014. The most granular and fastest news came out of Twitter, rather than traditional news sources, said David Lewis, the firm’s head trader.

    “We’re looking at different things to help us improve our decision making,” he said.
    Fairly long, I apologize.

    Membrain Launches SAP and ERP Integrated Business Applications for BlackBerry 10 Smartphone Users in Germany - Press Releases

    Jun 25, 2015

    Mnchen/Dsseldorf, Germany – Membrain GmbH, a BlackBerry Platinum Enterprise Partner, announced today that it is working closely with BlackBerry to secure business applications for enterprise customers operating in SAP and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) environments.

    Business applications from Membrain GmbH are now also available for BlackBerry 10 smartphone enterprise users in Germany to securely access backend solutions, manage CRM, maintenance, workflow, itemization and stock directly through their device. Companies’ employees can customize their applications for SAP workflows directly from their BlackBerry 10 smartphones in addition to iOS and Android devices. The business applications can then be securely deployed with BES12, a cross platform EMM solution by BlackBerry, to multiple device platforms. BES12 provides expanded EMM capabilities that can manage any mobile deployment model such as BYOD, COPE and COBO, and is built on BlackBerry’s trusted network.

    “With the support of Membrain business applications, we are expanding the portfolio of third party business solutions,” said Klemens Schrattenbacher, Global Business Development Manager at BlackBerry. “These applications give our BlackBerry 10 smartphone enterprise users new choices in accessing SAP and ERP data on their BlackBerry 10 smartphones.”

    “Enterprise users working on SAP and ERP business applications will now be able to access any data in the enterprise environment from their BlackBerry 10 smartphones in addition to iOS and Android devices,” said Harald Faulhaber, Managing Director Membrain GmbH. “The development of such applications for companies dealing with sensitive data is the focus of this partnership with BlackBerry, and delivers a true benefit to our end-users.”

    BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) Has Another Shot at The IT Goldmine [Report]

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) might be able to achieve its elusive turnaround if it gets to deliver its rumored Android device on the market. An analysis by John Leonard on Computing showed that BlackBerry might yet have hope at least among IT teams and users.



    Most firms have understood that it doesnt make much sense to try support all platforms during mobile app creation. Hence, they are now making mobile apps to reach the widest possible audience. Given the market strength of Googles Android and Apples iOS, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the OS that most firms will favor for their mobile app plans.

    However, this appears to be changing as BlackBerry continues to make a gradual comeback at least among IT teams. The good news for BBRY investors is that there have been some changes in the choice platforms for mobile apps.

    For instance, the Computing article says, the proportions opting for the current biggest players (iOS and Android) have declined slightly and BlackBerry has registered an increase in interest. The best part of the deal is that the survey conducted by Computing shows that 22% of takers now embrace a dual platform strategy up from 16% in 2014.

    BlackBerry is already working on making at least two Android devices based on rumors from BB lovers. The firm is set to deliver a high-end Android phone named Venice and an entry-level phone named Prague for emerging markets.

    BlackBerrys Android device is being built on the premise that it would attract users with other devices running the Android OS. For instance, many users have issues with the build quality of most Android devices. The firm hopes to be able to deliver decent build quality while helping people to access the many mobile apps that has kept them hooked on the Android OS.

    The shifting focus to building mobile apps on dual platforms now gives BBRY another shot at making its way to the hearts and hands and IT teams. Android and iOS have the most problems among mobile OS and BlackBerry and Windows OS have the least problems.

    Hence, IT teams are more likely to opt for an Android/iOS and Windows/BlackBerry mix. It is very unlikely that theyll use a dual-platform built on the Android and iOS with the biggest problems. A Windows-BB dual-platform is also unlikely because theyll not appeal to the widest audience of consumers.

    Government and Businesses ‘Down Under’ Get Mobile and Secure with BlackBerry



    --Of course we acknowledge that smartphone preferences have changed and many people use alternative handsets. That’s ok. We secure them too. There is still nothing more secure than a BlackBerry device on BES. However BlackBerry today is a different company – truly cross-platform, bringing those security benefits to iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows Phone 8, Samsung KNOX-enabled devices and Android for Work, too.

    The moral of the story: Mark Twain was a great bloke, but a skilled fabricator. In our book, which has many more chapters to tell, the truth always wins.--
