    Have you been watching the Utilities?
    Speaking of this topic, has anyone heard anymore of this "serious ajustment" that's supposed to hit the markets this year?

    lol, watching this Carl Icahn interview it's just hilarious. This guy thinks he's better than everyone else. Whether this is true or not, we'll only know if Dell goes up or down.

    It's being talked about all this week, the market needs new money to come in and people are waiting on the sidelines for a dip as a lot of people missed this rally.

    I'm ok with that. The last thing we want is for the question to be asked then him say he has zero interest in BB.

    Man, that would have been so perfect when they were talking about turn arounds to just slip the question in.
    Too bad they didn't.

    I wouldn't mind that. If the stock drops. I can pick up more. If he says he's interested, I'd get in on some more.
    "Win-Win"....kind of.

    Damn, Icahn was not asked about BlackBerry. After listening to the interview, I am not sure that Blackberry necessarily fits his profile. Icahn is an activist investor. When he takes a stake in a company he usually tries to get the CEO to resign and tries to shake up the board. Don't we all agree that Heins is doing a great job? However, the fact that BBRY is undervalued and has huge potential would make sense as an investment for Ichan. He like to hit home runs with his investments and BBRY is certainly a candidate for that. Also, BBRY has a large short interest. It seems that most companies that Ichan invests in share this trait. Under Icahn's watch, many of his investments have seen a short squeeze. All in all, I am torn. I am not sure if Ichan would choose to invest in BBRY.

    Well he owns NFLX and is now the biggest investor in HLF and not seeking either CEO to step down. He looks for value and stocks that are heavily shorted as he knows his weight alone will be enough to move a stock.

    Icahn clearly said at the end of the interview (and I paraphrase) "I think to be short a company in this market, with any kind of positive fundamentals, is foolish" - Someone have the exact phrasing?

    Because for long stretches they were taking on water, they were having tech issue with the car (some wondered if they would ever get it cleaned up and on market in any meaningful way), and then there is a great majority in the US that feel there is no need for an electric vehicle. Its still a niche vehicle thou, they will not be No. 1 anytime soon, but don't have to be..... as long as they are making profit, the stock will rise. Sound like any other stocks/companies you know?

    I hope the shorts take note what happened to Tesla can happen to BB
