    And the winner is…

    I’m with Andrew Left on this one.

    If you’re hungry for a tech stock, then BlackBerry is the hands-down winner today and on any dips that may happen going forward. The company has “game-changing” tech and a promising growth runway that will propel its shares much higher over the next few years.

    So is Chen going for some kind of record on the NYSE?

    I think I need to add some piece of news but impact is unknown. As everyone knows that TCL Communications which makes and sells BlackBerry phones is the subsidiary of TCL. Recently, TCL just sold 49% of TCL communication to another two strategic investors in China.

    TCL Corp. will sell 49% of its smartphone unit to three strategic investors for HK$490 million ($62.7 million), a year after one of China’s oldest electronics specialists signed a landmark deal to make phones using the storied but faded BlackBerry name.

    The latest deal comes about a year after TCL privatized its smartphone-making division, TCL Communication Technology Holdings Ltd., from the Hong Kong stock exchange. The unit’s latest valuation of about HK$1 billion from the new stake sale compares with about HK$7 billion at the time of the privatization, showing just how much the division is suffering in the cutthroat smartphone space.

    The latest stake sale was disclosed in a stock exchange filing late on Monday. It will see the 49% of TCL’s communications division sold to Unigroup, a telecoms specialist connected to the prestigious Tsinghua University, as well as Vivid Victory Developments Ltd. and an investment company based in southwest China’s Yunnan province.

    Unigroup and the Yunnan investor will both bring their telecoms expertise to the unit, while Vivid Victory will bring management expertise. The move shows that TCL, which makes phones under the BlackBerry, Alcatel and its own brand names, has no intention of abandoning the mobile communications business, said Chairman Li Dongsheng. He added that such mobile devices are a vital part of TCL’s broader business, which includes its status as one of China’s leading TV brands.

    “Right now smartphones and smart TVs have many similar functions. Many of their applications are also similar,” Li told Caixin in an interview. “Even though the business is losing money, we are constantly looking for a balance, and thus the communications business is something we can’t give up.”

    Founded in 1999, TCL’s communications division was one of China’s earliest cellphone players. But despite its earlier successes, that part of the business has suffered in recent years due to stiff global competition. TCL Communication’s unit sales, mostly cellphones, fell 36% to 21 million units in the first half of this year, while its revenue fell by 26% to 6.87 billion yuan ($1 billion). It posted a net loss of 852 million yuan for the period.
    The company is currently pursuing a strategy that is seeing it bring in strategic investors for many of its non-core units in a bid to improve performance.

    This seems like a more stable method of getting revenue rather than one time payouts.
    It's a shame that BB wasn't getting their money all along from their many patents. But then maybe they would have just sunk it into their failing handset business and have nothing to show for it today.

    I hope they can get more deals like this and with a few more wins under their belts, maybe other companies will think twice about stealing their IP

    QNX
    FWIW, first mention I have found of a link between QNX and NVIDIA's Pegasus

    Describing Pegasus as “a production ready platform to support L4/L5 automation,” Magney added, “It is very robust and has lots of redundancies and fall back methods. It will run on QNX which is an ASIL D embedded operating system.”

    Just a bit of information on AI (Artificial Intelligence) firms increasing their presence in the Montreal area. Noting that Alec Saunders (formerly with BB) now head of AI efforts at Microsoft commented briefly on expanding role of various AI technology presence in the Montreal area. Seems some developments are presently being discussed locally...

    And on a separate subject, Montreal is among the 50 some locations presently being reviewed for the second AMAZON HQ -- deadline for submittal being mid-October, 2017. Depending what happens could be interesting...

    Hi _dimi_!

    Sure, we are at a very bullish price level right now:

    The BBRY cafe [was: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-oct-12-2017.jpg

    The multi-year closing high is $ 11.42/shr so we need to close above that. The area of major resistance that drives the price back is from that close or $ 11.42/shr level to the multi-year high made earlier this year. RSI is over-bought but not a major problem right now, the general market has been strong and the Bollinger Bands are projecting to $ 12.25/shr without resistance. I would like to see us close above $ 11.50/shr and confirm that level tomorrow. On Monday we move to the next Exchange and Funds will basket the stock and likely buy it next week as part of a basket hedge. Lets at least get a multi-year closing high today, hopefully above $ 11.50/shr as well.

    As for the general markets, the indicators are very high, we could see a 2 - 3 % pullback soon but they look good. There is still some upside for the DOW, even today, so the balance of October might be safe here. I do worry that we could get more of a 5 - 8 % pullback if Trump stumbles on tax reform. These are crazy times and BBRY could get to my original target of $ 12.25/shr on this run, in the days ahead. After that, we'll have to look at everything again. GL

    The news has been great the past 2 weeks post the ER and we have yet to hear from Chen Re:Nokia. BlackBerry is hitting 100% on their litigation so far. I haven't looked at the share buyback program as there hasn't been one for months. Would they buy stock at today's level, likely not. The TA is strong and we are going high profile on Monday at the open. CNBC will be able to say they thought BlackBerry died years ago so that should be fun.

    No thanks to BBdog, I stopped hoping he would hold SPHS down so I could buy it. I switched to PSDV and bought an enormous block of it as their story is really compiling now.

    Just to show you the 3-minute chart:

    The BBRY cafe [was: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-oct-12a-2017.png

    We opened strong, that lasted only a few minutes and we dropped all the way back to yesterday's support at $ 11.34/shr. On the way down, we tried to hold a new nominal closing high just above $ 11.42/shr. The selling pressure was there at the start but it was also a controlled drop to support. We are now trying to turn bullish again but it looks more like we are just trying to close in the $ 11.40's today. There is a chance that we can move higher as the day is young and shorts are really up against it now. If you shorted the stock in the past 3-months and you haven't covered, think about it. It would be hard to see Chen not have something to say on Monday. The bull run is still intact and the stock looks solid today. Give me $ 11.50/shr today and I would be extremely happy. GL

    BlackBerry details patent deal with Android maker BLU | Reuters

    TORONTO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - BlackBerry Ltd (BB.TO) said a licensing deal it signed with low-end Android handset maker BLU Products Inc will bring it recurring revenue, ending a legal dispute over patents that rival Google has asked the U.S. government to revoke.

    BlackBerry did not disclose financial terms and its shares were little changed after the news, rising 0.5 percent in late Thursday morning Nasdaq trade (BBRY.O).

    BlackBerry filed two lawsuits against Miami-based BLU in June 2016, part of an effort by the Canadian company to generate revenue from its trove of technology patents.
    Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google responded to lawsuits against a maker of phones running its Android operating system by challenging six of the patents at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

    In late August and early September, a patent office appeal board said that Google had a “reasonable likelihood” of winning the invalidation of four patents in a full review.

    The deal between BlackBerry and BLU was likely secured prior to a July 19 memorandum of understanding filed with the court hearing their patent dispute. The two firms have declined to disclose financial terms of that agreement.


    BlackBerry Chief Executive Officer John Chen said on a Sept. 28 earnings call that his company had received revenue from BLU, but did not elaborate.


    It was not clear if that payment was included in that quarter’s earnings, which beat analysts’ forecast on a jump in licensing fees that includes patent payouts and royalties on BlackBerry-branded devices and software sold by others.


    Patent licensing deals are typically structured with an upfront payment to cover past sales and ongoing royalty payments tied to future sales.


    Market intelligence company IDC estimates that BLU accounts for less than 1 percent of global smartphone market share.


    BlackBerry said in its statement on Thursday that the completion of the BLU deal allows it to focus on other licensing targets in the mobile communications industry.


    “Anytime you have royalty-bearing licenses, you are setting a market rate,” said David Pridham, chief executive of Dallas-based patent consulting firm Dominion Harbor Group, which recently analyzed BlackBerry’s patent portfolio on behalf of a group of handset manufacturers.

    “Doing so with a smaller player will be helpful as BlackBerry turns its attention to larger market incumbents,” he said.


    BlackBerry is also waging two other patent lawsuits, one involving Nokia Oyj’s (NOKIA.HE) mobile networking technology filed in February and another broadly targeting Avaya products that was filed in July 2016.
