    It's all about ... news.
    Here you go (Reuters ... not a blog or a group ... heavy weight impact)
    National Bank Financial analyst Kris Thompson boosted his price target on shares of the embattled BlackBerry maker to $15 from $12. Thompson argues there is more money to be made in the stock, ahead of the early 2013 launch of RIM's make-or-break new line of devices powered by its BlackBerry 10 operating system.
    [...]
    "The new management team is executing by maintaining the BlackBerry subscriber base, managing costs and cash, and seemingly readying a February 2013 BB10 global platform launch," said Thompson in a note to clients.
    [...]
    Thompson said he now expects RIM to ship about 35.5 million devices in fiscal 2014, up from an earlier estimate of 31.6 million.
    "The shipments boost reflects about one more month of BB10 product availability plus a little extra for the positive sentiment building in the industry from our discussions," he said.

    Buy RIM shares? You kidding right? Haven't you seen how fast they are dropping? Would you like to lose money? I think not.
    It's been a while I didn't rewind this thread ... lol, sorry you got caught as example

    It just hit 11.98 for a bit there. It's looking like it may break 12 today.

    Either way. RIM has officially paid for every phone I've ever bought in the past and will buy in the future

    Does the prices on TSX usually reflect or influence the prices on Nasdaq or vice versa ? sry if this seems like a stupid question

    It will be very interesting tomorrow... the US markets are closed, so we can see a lot of people selling off the stock they bought at $7 or a lot of people buying because they realize this may go a lot higher.

    tomorrow will be the day to see where this stock will go in the near future

    (and i am kicking myself REALLY HARD for not buying at $7!!!... or at all)

    I've found that it usually trades at par minus any currency exchange corrections.

    Or a lot of people trying to cover shorts (though I suppose this might be what you meant by your second scenario).

    It's not a stupid question (remember, there are no stupid questions, only stupid people), but it's got an easy answer: Research In Motion Limited: TSE:RIM quotes & news - Google Finance

    Tomorrow will be most interesting day of RIM shares. Americans will wake up with 15% increase so there will be short squeeze, profit taking from early dips and short term investors who thinks it will go up to $15 so let see who wins...I predict it will go down a little bit for one or two sessions and then $15 coming up..Share your thoughts. I am kicking myself for selling some yesterday..Go RIM GO

    That's alright, I sold yesterday too, so I feel your pain.

    OTOH, I bought my shares at $6.20 back in Sept, so missing this morning's jump wasn't great but I can live with it. Better: I've got a bet for a bottle of Scotch with an (Apple-fanboi) acquaintance that RIM would be over $20 by the end of 2013, so that's looking better by the day

    Its interesting to see how much the holiday closure of Wall Street has affected the SP. I wonder what kind of hiccup today's rally with produce with the trading algorithms when the market re-opens tomorrow.

    My plan is to hold onto my shares for at least 5 years until the new platform matures.

    My big question is what the reaction will be among the other analysts. If a few more climb on board and revise their targets we might see this sustained.

    I hope so. Got back in at $11.77 today... I suspect we'll see some profit-taking tomorrow, unfortunately.

    I can live with it, though. I still (personally) see $40 by the end of next year, and $100 at the end of 2014. If all goes well. After today I'm not going to try to time any more dips.

    I expect to go even higer tomorrow due to short covering in american exchnage, the hype, more positivie review..Basically the reversal of all bashing that RIMM had to deal with it for months..Now you will see lots of positive articles means higher price. Who knows Samsung, MS might even try hostile takeover @ 20 now as they do not want to pay $100 later.
