    I bought at 14.00 -- They wont buy at higher than 14 -- They had nothing good about them. They based the company on purpose kamakazi.

    BBM could have driven up the price huge! What the hell,,,,, more than what.... WHY??!?!?!?

    I own some shares. A minor irritation. As QBNKELT says I was willing to lose it.

    But I also bought a lot more heavily into ARM Holdings and Qualcomm just before the iPhone 4 hit. You lose some and hopefully you win others as is the case for me.

    Though I will say something seems fishy with pre releasing earnings and knocking 2.00 a share almost off the stock. Then announcing a discounted bid at 9.00. Whatever. Eff em if some wrong doing is uncovered.

    Not seeing $4.7 billion as a fair valuation. Nokia's handset business just went to Microsoft for $7.2 and that did not include any patents, they get the use of Nokia's patents without royalties for 10 years but the ownership of the patents remain with Nokia, and no enterprise or mobile device management offerings which account for $800+ million per quarter in revenue at BlackBerry. Not to mention that Nokia's handset sales were propped up greatly by Microsoft's marketing muscle and advertising dollars. Not that BlackBerry's sales are great but they stand on their own and are not attributed to outside spending.

    Pure manipulation at work here. Now we know why suddenly Blackberry pre declared bad results on the last Friday. The numbers looked purposely beaten down. Fu*k Watsa and Heins and entire BOD. I see class action suit coming there way.
    Beat BB down every which way so Watsa can pick it up for a song.
    You can hand out a lot of Z10s for free for $1 billion.

    I bought stock prepared never to see the money again. I was shocked when it dropped to 6. Still holding.

    Don't buy unless you're prepared to lose.
    So you bought 1 share?

    I think shareholders are lucky to get out with their trousers still on. To me it was looking terminal. If the Fairfax deal falls through we still might find out if it is.

    Not to mention the cash. Blackberry has $2.6 billion in cash, so, Watsa is buying Blackberry business for $2.1 billion. heck, do the math, if you fire most of the employees and cut down on R&D, you wil get all your money back in service revenue alone. If I had millions of dollars in this as an institional buyer, I would never sell at $9. Blackberry is only risky as an ongoing company. If you wasnt to liquidate it, it shoudn't be sold for less than $10 for sure.

    It is ridiculous.
    I cannot believe this...
    9$ is to low...
    Then call up your broker and tell him you want to sell your shares for $18.

    See what happens.

    Anyone who still has BBRY stock and is pissed about this deserves everything they are getting right now. Stock should have been dumped long ago. People who held on because they were fans of the company deserve the losses. Remember what Gordon Gecko said, "Never get emotional over stocks".

    LOL! I did too Now that was something to be a part of when I worked there

    I also own shares of Dell and they are going private. At not near the price that I got them for.

    I don't have BBRY shares, but I feel the pain. Believe me.

    Do shareholders not get a vote to accept of reject the offer?

    No, not pleased, if shareholders vote, will likely be a no vote at that number.

    I means you only invest money you can afford to invest. Not money you need to pay your bills, your kids college, etc. And not your savings, at least not all of it in my opinion.
