    I'm a novice at TA...i've heard of the formation, but what does that mean/indicate? I haven't pulled the trigger yet on the purchase, still reading and doing some DD.

    This "typically" means a bullish move up. This stock has so many eyes on it and plays to be made both short and long, that it may not mean anything.

    I almost wanted to pull the trigger yesterday when I saw it retrace to the 9s after the AH high in the 18s the day before...didnt do it though. Now it's back where it was. I wish I could flip stocks like I used to -- I have to be extra conservative now since I'm required to hold for 30 days....

    Edit -- might be a better bet to put that $$ on BBRY

    For reference sake, here is yesterday's 15 minute chart, one day later. It's approaching the uptrend line and the RSI is down to a lower level so a strong buying session won't wear it out. The MACD is also starting to curl up so I "expect" (and we all know how often I'm right with this one... lmao) that it will be down slightly Monday morning then bounce and we make our way to $8.

    Have a fantastic weekend everyone and good luck in whatever play you have your money in.

    Thought I would sell my idea of a major rally in the stock again:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bb-nov-20-2015.png

    I posted this chart a couple of months ago and I talked about how I thought the DOW Jones would rally into January and that BlackBerry was looking more like it did back in late 2012 just prior to the launch of the BB 10. I think we are there again, we had a triple bottom in the stock over that period, we aren't far off the lows today, we are heading into a favourable period for the general market, we built a nice base at the lows this Fall and we have all the TA lining up for a great move again here.

    Back in 2012, we felt the BB 10 would save BlackBerry, it clearly didn't so it took us a couple of years to get some solid products to market, and today, it appears that we have the answer to a successful launch in the Priv. The 200-dma is at $ 8.60/shr so that is our first test of my theory and I see us getting there very soon. From that point on, the favourable market and more news on Priv sales, minus the delay in getting the product to market, should drive the stock into the upper regions around $ 9.50. The largest portion of the rally comes when Q3 earnings come out and we learn that the phone is in fact popular.

    Let's hit the $ 8.60 mark this week and churn away for a few dayts clearing that milestone for the month of December. GL

    M8, I would like to add my humble humble words upon your chart.

    1. I totally agree everything you said and hope for the same.

    2. Regarding the triple bottoms, it seems like this time it has more solid base so I wish the rally this time would go higher than last two times. I imagine in one month, the price would go around 11 or 12. And in four months from now, it would go higher than 18. After that, no one knows. Sky is the limit.

    3. To talk about my own experience on the triple bottoms, at the first bottom, I had little shares because of having been burned by buying as high as 18. At the second bottom, I had few shares too because of financial crisis etc. When it reached 10, I was regretting that I hadn't bought more below 8. Now, at this bottom, I have accumulated more and tripled my volume shares with my hard earned money. I feel everything is in place now. John Chen is showing us the Arts of wars. I think the final and sustainable winning is coming.

    4. Not sure if I should, I should thank for James Forccette, without him, we wouldn't have the golden opportunity to accumulate shares at low price.

    I agree with you and Morgan completely. I remember when I first started taking an active approach to investing about 2yrs ago and I flipped some BlackBerry shares at the $7-8 range, just to watch it eventually go to $10+. I told myself at that point if I was ever presented with the opportunity, I'd load up in that range again thanks Faucette!

    On a business trip in Mexico and it requires me to have two phones, my passport with my regular number and my z30 with a local SIM. It has been a while since I've used the Z30 and I totally forgot how nice it is. It can't match typing on my passport but the screen and the speed are pretty nice for a phone of this vintage.

    A question for you, if it reaches 10 again, are you going to sell, leave it or buy more? Personally, I think I decide not to sell any at that point until $100 party. But what do I know. Psychology is very tricky. What is weak hands? Sell at 8, sell at 10 or 12, 14, 16, 18, 22, 40, 100......?

    PRIV by BlackBerry Review


    The Good:
    Unique hardware and powerful specifications, including a 4K camera and 32 GB on-board storage, make PRIV a well-rounded device for the mature, mobile professional who require as few compromises as possible. With DTEK and other security additions, PRIV stands out as one of the broadest BlackBerry releases in recent memory.

    The Bad:
    With a weak front-facing camera and adjustment period that comes with a hardware keyboard, PRIV finds itself at odds with cheaper devices established in the mobile space. PRIV feels as if it was built for Android Marshmallow 6.0, and the nascent feel of some software features may detract from the experience for some.

    Is the Surge in Stock Buybacks Good or Evil? - WSJ

    Corporate stock buybacks are climbing toward a post-financial-crisis high this year, furthering the debate about the use of hundreds of billions of dollars in company cash to enhance quarterly earnings reports.

    Stock repurchases boost earnings per share, even if total earnings don’t change, by reducing the number of shares. Analysts and investors typically track per-share earnings, not overall earnings.

    Buybacks have drawn criticism from some fund managers including Larry Fink, chief executive of BlackRock Inc., which oversees $4.5 trillion in assets. He has said some companies invest too much in buybacks and too little in longer-term business growth. Repurchases also have become a political issue. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has called for more-frequent and fuller disclosure of them by the companies involved, even as some activist investors push for more buybacks as a way of returning cash to investors.

    In the year’s first nine months, U.S. companies spent $516.72 billion buying their own shares, with third-quarter reports still not complete, according to Birinyi Associates. That is the highest amount for the first three quarters since the record year of 2007, the year before the financial crisis. It leaves this year on track for a post-2007 high if fourth-quarter buybacks hold up.

    Buybacks can have a significant impact on earnings, as was illustrated this quarter by companies including Microsoft Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., Pfizer Inc. and Express Scripts Holding Co. Microsoft turned a decline in total earnings into a per-share gain by repurchasing a little more than 3% of its shares in the past 12 months. Its total third-quarter earnings were down 1.3% from a year earlier, but per-share earnings rose 3.1%, according to FactSet.

    For Wells Fargo, a 0.6% increase in total earnings became a 2.9% gain in earnings per share after buybacks. At Pfizer, a 2% overall earnings gain became a 5.3% per-share jump. Express Scripts, a large drug-benefits manager, turned a 2.8% overall gain into a 12.4% per-share increase.

    Apple Inc. is by far the biggest buyback spender this year, with $30.22 billion, followed by Microsoft, Qualcomm Inc. and American International Group Inc.
    This year isn’t on pace to surpass 2007 in total buybacks. But Birinyi’s data show that announcements of planned future buybacks are the highest for any year’s first 10 months, more even than in 2007.

    “If companies execute their plans, we are looking at a record amount being deployed over the next couple of years,” said Birinyi analyst Robert Leiphart.
    Some analysts have said for years that the buyback pace will slow, but there is little sign of that. Nike Inc. on Thursday announced plans for up to $12 billion in buybacks over the next four years, following an $8 billion program that ends next May.

    With corporate cash levels near records and interest rates low, use of cash or debt to finance buybacks is becoming widespread.

    “More than 20% of all companies in the S&P 500 reduced share count by at least 4%” over the 12 months through the third quarter, said Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices. It marked the seventh quarter in a row that at least 20% of S&P 500 companies reported that kind of share reduction. A buyback of 4% or more can have a noticeable impact on earnings per share, Mr. Silverblatt said.

    He calculates that about 12% of S&P 500 companies already have bought so many shares that, even if their total fourth-quarter earnings don’t rise and they buy no more shares, their fourth-quarter earnings per share will be up at least 4%, due simply to reduced share count.

    Last year, he said, he calculated that S&P 500 companies got a return of about 1.3% on cash they held, which put pressure on them to put the money to work.

    Buybacks sometimes can push up a company’s stock price simply by boosting demand. Most of the heaviest buyers of their own shares have seen their stock prices rise this year, with Apple up 8.1% and Microsoft up 16.7%. But Qualcomm is down 33.2% this year, Oracle Corp. has retreated 12.5% and biotechnology company AbbVie Inc. has fallen 6.6%.

    Some critics have complained that buybacks also can represent a hidden cost of using stock awards or options as executive pay. When issuing stock to executives, companies typically buy back shares in the market to keep share count from rising. They don’t typically announce the buybacks as a compensation cost, analysts say.

    Some analysts would like companies to be more forthcoming. Currently, buybacks permit managers to receive “more of a company’s cash flow than is reported as compensation on the income statement,” said an October study by Research Affiliates, a research firm and investment-products designer in Newport Beach, Calif.

    Mark Clements, one of the authors of the Research Affiliates report, noted that managers’ pay also sometimes depends on gains in earnings per share, which can provide a further temptation to initiate buybacks.

    More generally, critics have said that buybacks represent an artificial, short-term method of boosting profits. Some companies have made large buybacks in quarters when earnings were soft, leading to complaints that they were simply managing earnings.

    In a letter this year to companies in which BlackRock invests, Mr. Fink, the CEO, wrote that “more and more corporate leaders” are taking “actions that can deliver immediate returns to shareholders, such as buybacks or dividend increases, while underinvesting in innovation, skilled workforces or essential capital expenditures necessary to sustain long-term growth.”
