    Super low ball offer at the worst possible time... unacceptable to BlackBerry shareholders...

    Hopefully this will trigger "serious offers " to come forward.....

    Heya CEO,

    are you completely out of BB? Or are you thinking of adding? I personally have no idea what to expect these next few days, however I have come to accept defeat if we do see a final $9 offer... Also, BBM is a work in progress for now, fixing issues mainly due to leaks... Expect to see it in october.

    What, you don't think they've been sabotaging the value of the company already?
    You've seen the light?

    Even if apple was interested in buying BlackBerry, the canadian government would never let it happen. this deal more than likely has the backing of the can gov't as fairfax is a canadian based company.

    A list should be compiled of the "experts" around here swearing the market was wrong and they had a $12-15 / share valuation. These people should never be trusted.
    But they posted technical analysis charts!?

    Dunno why you guys are being *****... some of those who posted TA charts have made more money off this stock than probably 99% of the members here. They were just explaining to us their strategy.

    Based on their track record with BlackBerry, I'd be skeptical about their claims of financial success. You shouldn't believe everything you read on the Internet just because it feeds your fandom.

    How do you figure that? I've been following the "I support BBRY..." thread and based on their own postings, the gurus are losing money on the stock. And anyone who believed in their prognostications and acted on them are also losing a lot of money.

    It's not even a case of you win some, you lose some. The gurus where reliably and consistently wrong most of the time. The TA charts the posted for some reason signalled a bullish movement 90% of the time. But if you look at the stock, it is more down that it is up. Even a monkey flipping a coin would have done better than the gurus.

    A few weeks ago, there were some people asking for advice. They had a feeling that the stock price would drop at the next earnings report and they asked if it was a good idea to sell now and buy in after the earnings report. The chief chartist told them this was a bad idea, even saying that if they sold they would lose out on a $4 upside.

    Of course we all know what happened last Friday and today. Instead of the predicted 35% gain, anyone who followed that advice would have lost 20%. That's a 55% swing.

    The chief chartist posted a pretty graph on Friday morning, again with a bullish prediction. Then the stock was halted and the stock dropped 18%. But this did not faze him, not in the least. There was not a single mea culpa, not even a hint of admission that maybe he was slightly mistaken. He went on a posting spree confidently explaining that what happened was should not have come as a surprise and that everyone expected it.

    Don't get me wrong. This wasn't a one time thing. It happened last ER as well. It happened practically every time the stock dipped down.

    When I get the time, I'll dig back and bring up the links. It's one of the most remarkable things I've seen in the internet. Extremely fascinating.

    Really? He has reportedly bought in at a higher weighted average cost.

    I agree. I wonder if we'll see that adjusted up, though. Just having an offer on the table leads to a lot more confidence in BB's survival...
    The stock market is such a dangerous place.....an "offer". Really?

    Insider bullshi:t, completely manipulated. Thor, Prem and the rest of the BOD should be shackled and whipped. Then bring back Mike and Jim to watch and give them a few lashings in between breaks. Then ask them what blackberry is worth.

    I followed that thread as well and I think it was very irresponsible how the "loyal" longs wrote off anyone else's view. They were too busy bragging about their growing ignore lists instead of considering others' viewpoints.

    The whole thread is a cautionary tale on the perils of being emotionally attached to your investment. Also on the dangers of confirmation bias. They only listened to opinions which supported their own wishes, and ignored, literally, any contrary opinions. Someone could write a case study about it. If certainly love to read it.

    Anybody who believes in TA deserves to lose their money. A monkey throwing darts at stock quotes page does better more than half the time than T analysts. Reason? T analysts trade too much and pay out in trading fees. Read Burton Malkiel's "Random Walk Down Wall Street" for a lesson on why TA doesn't work.
