    BlackBerry stock was very flat today, barely moving around $8.20/share. Trading volume was about a quarter of average. It seems like everyone is now in a waiting period...

    1. Will other bidders show their hand before November 4th and thus fluctuate the price?
    2. Will other bidders wait until the very last moment to "snipe" BlackBerry, eBay-style? (Is that possible?)
    3. Will no other bidders show up and Fairfax's bid stand? As is? Lower? (There's probably another waiting period where shareholders vote and during that time, another bid can still take place, yes/no?)

    Can't invest if you don't know whats going on I suppose. Nobody seems confident in the Fairfax deal, that its going to happen, so you cant buy and have the deal not go through with poor earning in the future, stock going to plummet. Don't want to sell, because no one knows if a better deal may come along. This is LIMBOOOOO!!

    With BBM momentum, now would be a good time for a deal, (not with prem), to keep the ball rolling.

    Anyone see twitter as a good candidate, to partner.

    Never thought of twitter. Problem is, twitter has never actually made any money. Just another one of those US social network companies that has a massivley inflated valuation based on users/potential future earnings and nothing else. Another reason why BlackBerry being valued at what is it is a complete and utter joke...especially now with BBM seemingly being fairly successful going cross platform.

    It will be slow all week. With Nov. 4 quickly approaching, people aren't going to drive up the price to or beyond $9.

    Shows the confidence (or lack thereof) the market has on this upcoming Fairfax deal. The stock wont move until this deal is either finalized or rejected. Even if passed, the stock will not exceed the purchase price so there's absolutely no point investing in a long position at the moment.

    BBRY stock will plunge to below $5 on November 4 if no other buyer goes in and Fairfax backs out

    Agreed, but twitters upcoming ipo gives them cash to buy value, blackberry as you pointed out, has lots of value. Add twitter brand popularity to polish Blackberrys reputation, and give twitter BBMs potential for monetization. I'm not saying twitter becomes blackberry but BBM could give both companies exactly what they need now, the largest mobile social network in the world.

    If all Twitter wants is mobile social network, they're better off buying WhatsApp which has nearly 3x of BBM user base and is worth far less at US$1 billion.

    2 quarters ago....and many quarters prior to that. Still beats NEVER. And you know, the fact that BlackBerry actually owns some tangible assets and intellectual property and patents and not just a social network experience...anyone who does not believe that either they are undervalued or nonprofitable companies like twitter, pintrest and so on aren't severely overvalued is sadly mistaken.
    Just one big stock market game....and only a select few will win.

    You're kidding right? BB has negative brand value right now... anything that comes in contact with BB is poisoned, at least in the consumer sector. I doubt Twitter is really gunning for only the corporate sector.

    Storm 2 was by far so much superior. Clicking and multi-touch allowed for so much faster typing.

    Until BBRY says anything, it's more like 4-5X.

    Not true, Never and past performance don't matter when the future is what determines stock price. The market only cares about future quarters and what will happen. The trajectory on BBRY is terrible right now and its future is extremely uncertain. If it was a bargain or mis-priced, the market would fix that. It hasn't.... You can say what you want, but the stock market is usually, not always, a brutally efficient price setter. "Sadly mistaken" is a view not seen by many and certainly not seen by the the market. You can't blame BBRY's failures on the stock market or call it a game. It is what it is.

    No matter how you slice it...the stock market has always been a game and a method to transfer wealth to the wealthy. Regardless of whether that was true or not, a company with assets and patents like BlackBerry in no way shape or form should be valued the way it is even with their recent downturn given the valuation of companies that have never made any money and some of which have no plans on how to make money (ie Pinterest).
