    I couldn't agree more. I have no choice but to take risks or I can't buy more shares. Most on this thread are beyond wealthy, but I'm a retired army guy trying to increase my chances for starting my own business. I was waiting for the SP to rise so I could sell and buy in again on the next dip. I made a Rookie mistake and I had all my money in so I have nothing now. I should have done like the Kid and had two accounts. Good thing is the money I'm playing with is already written off as a loss so I don't have to have it back, although I would like it not to disappear. Lol so here I sit waiting. Lol
    Again I do hear ya! I think sometimes we're so wired into this thing that the slightest movements in price keep us from really benefiting from the volatility. Just think how many times in the last 3 months we could have sold off some at say 16 bucks and bought back at 13 and change if we only had the patience to wait. It's terrible that bs stories can swing the sp so much but it's also opportunity. This forum is great because we have guys like Morgan to teach us a bit about TA and that stuff does work much of the time. I never thought I'd be looking at stuff like moving averages and volumes and all that but the movement in this stock allows us to benefit. It's awesome!

    Lol...what are you taking? an MBA? an LLB?

    The only reason I ask this is that from my experience it has been the MBA and LLB students that have always been challenged most by economics, whereas engineering students seem to breeze through.

    I wish you all the best and recommend more beer with your studies.

    Charles!

    I laughed when I saw your message here! I had to read it twice to be sure where I fit in! LOL

    My first Under Graduate degree is in Economics, I have all of the licenses to trade in every investment vehicle out there today including options, commodities, currencies etc., got out of the investment industry by earning my Engineering degree (Mech.), I have an MBA and. PhD in Econ., .... So where do I fit into your theory?

    I have plenty of education but I'm not a nerd, I also have Electrical and Mechanical Certification(s) and some other junk. But I spend my time welding and building automated machinery when I'm not writing periodicals for the American Society of Engineering Management. Now where do I fit into that theory? Ha!

    why did BB wait until after close to release a statement?
    shoulda issued it first thing this morning.
    It is the best way to kill the short.
    Release the announcement after the market closed so that the short cannot massively cover without spike SP upward. Tomorrow, when the SP goes up, the shorts will pay their price heavily.
    I just have one question:
    Who bought the 4.1 million shares just before the market close?

    How ironic, I have never made bets or gamble unless I knew for sure that I would win. Been 100% against gambling at race tracks and casinos, but now inadvertently turned into into a riverboat gambler... lol

    Apparently it's got a new name....investing! Hey, as I said before to me this is my play money. I do believe in all the things Heins and the boys are doing otherwise I wouldn't be here. I think in the long run we will be rewarded for our support.

    Totally forgot about these guys. I worked with these FEMA guys from Homeland Defense and am qualified and certified through their Emergncy Management programs. They use BlackBerry as well and have included a few of their apps in BlackBerry World. Now, because of the nature of their business they have to include other brands to get their message out, but they use BlackBerry devices. In fact, one of their officers is actually responsible for introducing me to the Playbook. These are some of the greatest people you could hope to meet. Smartphone App | FEMA.gov

    Lcjr would these be part of the 470000 bbs we hear about for DoD or are they completely separate?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and new to this thread. I've been a Blackberry supporter from the get-go however my current hand device is a S3. I've been following this thread for roughly a month now (since I've entered into the stock market - TSX) and been a frequent visitor to Crackberry since my storm 2.

    Love reading everyone's reactions/thoughts on BBRY. I'm Long and in it for the bumpy ride!

    Long live BBRY - and all our balls made of brass and un-wavering loyalty to one of the best the Great White North has to offer =D
    Welcome on board.
    However, if you believe in Blackberry and are long in its stock, then I may suggest you to replace your S3 with Z10.

    I think I'm literally in the exact position as you, roughly 2500 shares. I have two accounts, the big account that has roughly 2000+ shares is my long and strong account with an average of 14.73. I have a trading account with a few hundred. I have made profits on that one, but due to today I am back to even (or a little under because after selling I re-bought at 16.40). So overall I have a paper-loss of a couple thousand.

    One thing I regret was not selling when I made a distinct goal before I dove in. As a first time investor, I told myself that all I wanted to do was make roughly 1500 dollars in profit. First week I bought in, within 5 days, I was up 5000. Ahh yes, life was good. The greed kicked in and things went crummy. After a few negative press releases BB fell back to the price I bought it at. Later, it would fall to the low 13's and stay there for the whole month of Feb... I never once panicked, I was just annoyed at myself for not selling. Then again, the week before that ER launch the SP hit the high 16's again. Not knowing the future, I held on because I swore to myself if this hits 18.80 I would sell. Well that infamous Friday came about and within a few short hours the stock fell 3 dollars! Back to normal... Now I sit here, with a little bit more shares, waiting. My research and confidence with other investors holding on (Prem W. & Mike L for example) have helped calm me down. I believe the stock will hit in the 20's, we just need a good ER, strong Marketing campaign, and some new products. However, there is much, much more potential out there too, just go through the thread and you will see...

    So lessons learned from my first time investing: Stick to your strategy (I could have sold and bought back). Don't panic, which is something I have not done, thankfully. And go against the grain... The media is out there to mess around with your head, be afraid. But I've also learned a lot of good things too... That's my story thus far. Hopefully next year it will have a better ending.
    Hi kid

    Thank you for the reply, and glad that you never panicked. I was at first, I soon realize its the nature of this stock. I am also more disappointed that I didnt sell when I was up by $8,000. I guess I also got greed, and thought it would continue to rise. I also believe that if I sell, I could never get back in. Five months later, BB has gone up and down many times and I was in the green and red about just many times.

    Prior today I was in the green about $2,000 but now I am once again in the red. My plan was to keep at least half my holding long term and use the other to make a bit of profit. Unfortunately, bad rumours are worst than the good news for BB, hence the number of shorts. Q4/12 was a good start in bring BB back on top, but they need to have a few more quarters with increasing better results before BB stablize. i believe long term they will. the Q10 will succeed, and hopefully with some good business sales and clearer picture of where BB wiill branch out, we should all be good.

    Once this false rumour disappears, my next worrisome time will be after the Q10 is release to the UK and Canada. Our media friends in the states won't be happy they will get their release date weeks later.

    I only have on investors acct and I am trading outside of my RRSP because I sold my house, unfortunately for a lost, so I have capital lost.

    I should also mention, I am holding almost as much as you. I have 2,450 shares and I was going to make that 2,500 even but I had to take extra funds out of my chequing acct. I don't want go to deep... although I think I have.

    Btw although I don't write a lot on this forum, I really enjoy reading everyone's writeup and good humour .

    Cheers and good luck again!

    I can tell you so many stories of manipulation, you don't have the time to hear them all. When I was an Options Strategist for RBC, I met with some of the biggest investors in Canada, one of my friends, a Civil Engineer made his fortune developing and marketing resource companies. He is worth at least $ 1/2 billion all of it made developing shell companies and running the stock. I would get a phone call from some crazy location, just the name of the stock that was in play, and within hours the stock would be up 50 - 100%. Nothing was ever said about the play, just the name and direction. He ran with the CEO's of many top resource companies and knew plenty. You would never know he is that rich until you saw his cottage. The stories are endless with these guys. I've seen so much over the years. Thanks for asking.

    That's why it was hard for me to explain all this earlier in the thread. The government is huge now, composed of multiple agencies that have hundreds of subordinate organizations under them. Each take care of themselves regarding supplies so it's not going to be one giant order if somebody wants to purchase something.
