    Just go to BMO op they will open an account (trading) for you and their fees are minimal. As for BlackBerry Stock I say Buy it,hold long term. If you are looking to make a quick investment and cash out this isn't for you.

    Thanks for all the advice so far, I'm reading all of your comments. Right now, I am debt free, have a good job, and a good amount of disposable income. I don't plan on investing a huge amount into BlackBerry, however a few shares I could stand to have. And I'd be okay if I lost some of that investment over time. We'll, we'll see what happens!

    If you are OK with losing it all, and you merely want to do this as a "token investment" then sure, go ahead. Just don't expect anything any time soon.

    It's very hard for individual investors (especially ones with other full-time jobs) to win at the single-stock game. You are playing against specialists that have much more money to move, and much more time and resources to research.

    Maybe, with the spare cash, you'd want to consider buying a few Z30s and seeding them with your peers. That would probably be a better "show of support" for BlackBerry, and more likely to bring emotional "gains" to you in the near future.

    Just be aware that it's probably going to take a while for bb to recover. This investment could make money but it will probably take a while. Don't invest money you can't afford to lose

    If you just want to support blackberry, a better way is to promote their products to people you know. Although buying shares does support the company, just be aware that you could lose it all

    You can buy through facebook.
    Just post "blackberry" as a status update and ask people to share it. The more people share, the more you own. That's how I own 150,000 blackberry shares.

    I also own many shares from other companies including Apple, Ms and Google. But I can't seem to sell them. I wonder why. hmmm

    So if I want to buy shares in BlackBerry, what's the best way to do it?
    If you have to ask, the best answer is FULL STOP. Learn about investing first and decide if you want to trade on fundamentals or technicals - there's no one best method, you have to discover what fits you. Best advice for a newbie, as far as I'm concerned, is to NEVER fall in love with a stock. No matter how much you like your BlackBerry phone, if you're losing money on the stock, take it behind the barn, shoot it in the head and move on.

    Learn first, then invest, or I'll be there with other traders to take your money. If you don't think you have any interest in owning/trading stocks and learning how to do that properly, and just want to own a little BBRY and nothing else, that's ok. But if you make that decision, treat it like a lottery ticket and not an investment.

    Buying shares of a company (post-IPO) doesn't really help the company in any significant way - their stock already exists, and they already sold it at the IPO price and got the money, so when you buy stock, what you are doing is HOPING that the demand for the stock rises, so that the value of an individual stock rises, letting YOU make money.

    As other people have mentioned, a more direct way to "support" a company is to buy and use their products, and encourage others to do the same. In the long run, that will do more to raise the stock price than buying a handful of shares. Of course, you can't really make money that way, so you need to be honest with yourself: are you trying to support BB, or are you trying to potentially improve your own situation?

    I'll give you a golden advice - ALWAYS DIVERSIFY your investments.

    Markets do not reward you for bearing idiosyncratic (i.e. company-specific) risk (unless you know something others don't).

    If you do not diversify, your return, whatever it is, does not justify the risk you are exposed to.

    And, as others have already mentioned, do not invest more than you can afford to lose.

    Nice premarket - Should probably have bought Friday. BBRY typicly gets lower ones the markets opens on a rising day. While I fundamentaly agree with TroyTiscareno, that in practice your not giving any direct support by buying BlackBerry shares, you are in theory supporting any company if enough holds onto their shares and refuse to sell (long holding period)
    There's always a correlation between a company's share price and how other enterprises evaluate the stability of the company

    As long as you've been warned as you have numerous times from numerous people. it's fundamentaly your money/risk/reward/loss to do with as you please

    go to any one of the major banks and open an investors account.most will give you one,if you buy 10 shares the cost will be the same as if you bought 1,000 ,so check on how much they charge per transaction and go from there.It,s good to invest in the stock market but only a fraction of your savings,and don't put all your eggs in the same basket,and another thing ,BB is not for the faint of heart.Also check their annual fees as you probably will have to pay them, if you don't have a minimum balance of let's say $15,000.It could be higher depending on which bank you deal with,have fun and do your homework.
    and always ask for a Stock Certificate,that way your shares are always going to be protected from someone who wants to borrow them and short the stock,which is not good for your investment.

    haha. if you're talking about the Nokia X launch, there is nothing new to add to the competition.
    BB stock has pretty much suffered as much as it ever will, in my opinion. Chen is doing a great job and the BB brand is actually surfacing up a lot more. BBM, android apps in BB store, and possibly Google Play (should be integrated in BB World) all these things are within reach, i hope. lets go BBRY! looking forward to the $25 share price by 2016!

    also, i'd make a wager. I'm a share holder, and assuming you are too, we can make a bet.
    you set a price point for this week, ending 2/28. if the price is at or below your set price, i will sell 10 shares at fridays price (before closing) if the price is more than your set price, you have to sell 10 shares at Fridays price.

    deal?

    Don't expect any sort of short squeeze here. They have far more money patience than many have realized. They may cover, but there isn't anything on the horizon that would cause any sort of squeeze. The majority of shorts are so far in the money right now that a slow and orderly cover would be easy and not cause any sort of squeeze.

    On Monday Feb 24, it opened at $9.48, it had its peak this week on Tues at $10.90 and today it closed at $10.00, which is your typical weekend dip. so for the most part your assumption is way off.
    I think you should refrain from opening your mouth about BBRY stock again as you have lost total credibility and you were being such a c0ck about it. next time better keep your mouth shut and let the pros like Chris Umiastowski talk about it before you make a fool out of yourself again.
