    if it was a down day for the tech sector5 pennies would have been good, but it was a great day with Netflix jumping 18%, Amazon ~4%, Apple ~2% and the Nasdaq 1.26%.

    Wow. Let's stop this. Now.
    Nothing new, we're still trading sideways after a small rebund on the lows.
    There's nothing to chew to drive the SP (either up or down), the speculation -good or bad - is at work.
    So seat back and try to relax.

    If you're not involved (aka own) BBRY, there's no reason to come here and play the smart guy. If you own it, you know this place is for the uttermost long scale (for traders), so...

    Anyhow, let's keep it civil and avoid provocation back and forth.

    Thanks!
    Cheers

    Top 20 IoT companies: IBM takes #1 spot | Q2/2015 update

    BBRY #17

    IBM is leading the Internet of Things companies ranking for Q2/2015 mainly due to its massive investment of $3bn it is starting to put into IoT.

    Other major findings of the Q2 IoT companies ranking:

    • Intel, that had previously been number 1, has fallen to the third position.
    • The race between the five big companies (IBM, Google, Intel, Microsoft and Cisco) continues. Apple is starting to join the pack as a sixth company.
    • What is striking about IBM is that the American software giant now employs more than 1,400 employees in the Internet of Things, almost 50% more as the second biggest IoT employer (Cisco).
    • SAP remains the highest ranked non-US company in 7th
    • The list includes a number of new entries to the top 20 list, including Ericsson, Qualcomm, Orange, Facebook, and Dell.
    • Gartner, ARM, Accenture, Arduino, IDC, PTC have fallen out of the top 20.

    On a side note, Verizon finally pushed the upgrade to 10.3. I'm really happy with the new design and a few new features on my Q10. I may go through the pain of setting up my Z10 to see the OS update in action on that device.

    Federal officials say they need a “backdoor” to protect the public.
    Technologists warn that there is no way to build in a “backdoor” just for law enforcement, much as there’s no way to outfit a safe with a backdoor that only the FBI can open. If encryption is weakened so that government can, in theory, access anyone’s data with a warrant, then in practice, everyone’s communications will be vulnerable to Chinese hackers, the Russian government, and NSA employees operating beyond constitutional bounds without individualized warrants.

    I just don't care if they purchase a single share, it costs money that could be used to acquire another company and add to revenues. The only good thing about the share buy back is the removal of trading shares for day traders meaning we'll benefit from lower volumes and disinterest in short sales. The bigger picture is why did we drop volume back to 4 MM shares yesterday when our average run rate is 8 - 10 million each day for June and July. We won't know how many shares they are buying nor when they make those purchases so I don't sweat the issue. I would like to see them work towards increasing revenues and hopefully profits and report back to the market ASAP. I'm really interested in today's follow through volumes.

    Our major problem is how do you get the price of your stock to go above consensus average 12 month target rates? If the average is now $ 8.00/shr for the next 12 months, we are there and few stocks trade at or above their target rates. This is a problem in the short term and we need to hear from BlackBerry about some growth opportunities to justify paying more than consensus for the stock this month. Chen dug himself something of a real stock price hole with the last Q mix-up, that is more concerning then the share buy back at any price for me.

    OT: Microsoft deals a big blow to Finnish town with Nokia unit closure

    Microsoft deals ?a big blow? to Finnish town with Nokia unit closure - The Globe and Mail

    When U.S. software giant Microsoft bought Nokias struggling mobile phone business last year, the inhabitants of Salo a town of 54,000 in southern Finland thought the move would revive the local economy.

    But their hopes were crushed last week when Microsoft announced it would close Nokias former product development unit in the town, putting all 1,100 jobs at risk.

    Last year the U.S. company had said it could hire more staff in Salo.

    The decline of Finlands electronics industry as Nokia lost competitiveness against peers Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., along with falling global demand for paper products and EU sanctions on neighbouring Russia, have entrenched the Scandinavian country in a three-year recession. Towns such as Salo, home to one of Nokias first factories set up in the 1970s, have been particularly hard hit.

    Prime Minister Juha Sipila called Microsofts decision last week a big blow, and visited Salo on Monday to hear from locals how the government could best help the town.

    A former engineer and telecoms executive, Mr. Sipila was elected in April on a promise to balance Finlands budget, cut bureaucracy and lower taxes for small companies. He has advocated the role of entrepreneurship in getting Finland back on track, but that may be a tough transition for an economy that became so dependent on Nokia.

    Ten years ago, Nokias operations in Salo employed 5,000 people and even in 2008, more than a fifth of all jobs in the area were within information technology.

    Today Salos unemployment rate stands at 15 per cent, well above the national rate of 9.7 per cent, following the closure of a Nokia factory in 2012 and previous Microsoft layoffs. Closing the product development unit could push it up to 20 per cent.

    High unemployment and the angst among Finns about where their country is headed is reflected in the rising popularity of the eurosceptic Finns Party, now a coalition partner, and in Finlands recent tough stance in euro zone negotiations on bailout funds for Greece.

    Finnish politicians expressed their solidarity with Salo on social media.

    My staff and I have been closely following the death curve, said Salos mayor Antti Rantakokko, referring to the decline in recent years of Windows share of the global smart phone market to just 2-3 per cent.

    He said some technology companies had been in contact with him about investing in Salo, but would not elaborate.

    Microsoft, in an emailed statement to Reuters, said that, under its new strategy, the company would cut the range of smart phones it sells and so would not need three development sites in Finland.

    Two Finnish sites, in Espoo and Tampere, will remain open, but of its 3,200 employees in Finland, only 900 may survive after negotiations between Microsoft and Finnish employees, expected to start later this month.

    We were of the impression that Microsoft would give its phone business a bit longer to see if it can grow, said Aimo Leskela, a trade union shop steward and 30-year veteran at Nokia.

    Mika Paukkeri, another shop steward, said he hoped Microsoft would cut its staff in Salo, not shut it down altogether.

    Sipila said Finland would apply for aid from the European Globalization Adjustment Fund, which supports people who have lost their jobs following major structural changes.

    Manufacturing of mobile phone handsets shifted from Salo to Asia in 2012.

    Shopping for fabrics in a local store this week, Maria Gustafsson said of the 20 years she has spent in Salo, it has never felt so bad living here. First Nokia closes the factory, now this.

    Yes. Same here. I am dying to upgrade my Q10 to Slider. I'd have upgraded to Classic had its internals been upgraded. I tried Passport for few days but I couldn't get used to 3-row keyboard. So, Slider it is for me.

    Is BlackBerry Ltd. a Bargain at $10 Per Share?



    Since John Chen became CEO of BlackBerry Ltd. (TSX:BB)(NASDAQ:BBRY) in late 2013, the company has, without a doubt, made tremendous progress. But the shares remain stuck at $10.

    So, that leads us to the all-important question, the one thats very difficult to answer: is this price a bargain?

    Why $10 is pricey

    After accounting for net debt, BlackBerry is valued at US$2.7 billion. This works out to roughly 0.9 times trailing revenues. For most companies, this ratio would be very low.

    But for BlackBerry, this is a very high number. The companys revenues are still shrinking, and it still makes practically zero profits. To put this in perspective, even if BlackBerry were to stop its revenue slide AND achieve a 5% profit margin after tax, the stock would still trade at 18 times earnings. Meanwhile, the banks trade for about 12 times earnings, and most are still growing their bottom lines.

    Now, this may be a simplistic approach, but theres a very important point to be made here: a lot of optimism is already built into BlackBerrys stock price. So, even if Mr. Chen does get BlackBerry on solid footing, there may not be any upside for the shares.

    Why $10 is a bargain

    For months, I have argued that BlackBerrys assets and capabilities would be more valuable in another companys hands. And when looking at the numbers, BlackBerry starts to look like a real bargain.

    Back in January Reuters reported that Samsung wanted to buy BlackBerry for US$7.5 billion, or roughly US$15 per share. And even though neither side officially confirmed the report, pundits generally agreed that the move made sense for Samsung.

    The Korean giant has had trouble gaining traction in the enterprise market, and BlackBerry could have helped with that. Samsung also covets BlackBerrys patents. As a bonus, Samsung would own QNX, an operating system that has made great progress in the lucrative Internet of Things market.

    Unfortunately, BlackBerry rejected the offer, claiming it was too low. So, to put this in perspective, Samsung wanted to pay US$15 per share. BlackBerry said this was unreasonably low. And you can buy shares for $10. All of a sudden, the stock looks like a bargain.

    And since then, there have been some very positive developments for BlackBerry. Most notably, it has signed a big licensing deal with Cisco Systems, Inc., providing a big boost to its software division.

    What should you do?

    BlackBerry remains one of Canadas most polarizing stocks, and for good reason. Theres a strong case that this stock is too expensive, and also a strong case that this is a bargain.

    Theres no point pretending to have the answer. But one thing is clear: theres a lot of uncertainty surrounding BlackBerry. And for that reason, you shouldnt devote a large chunk of your portfolio to the name. ....
