    Some of us not only BB fans but investors and some of us became fans after we invested. Either way we all BB fans and some of us lost some or lost of money. I am one of them so I hope to start this thread to share ideas on other stocks and ETFs ( mostly tech which I know a bit ) to recover some of our losses. I am sure as losers we learnt valuable lessons from this experience and we should apply them to future investments. o

    Let's start share thoughts, tips, ideas, find companies such as BB which is turn around and money to be made in next few months.
    Some people like big boys due to market cap, some people like volatile like natural gas, ETFs. some like dividend stocks..whatever they are let's share all to help other BB investors.

    I follow crazy volatile natural gas ETFs such UGAZ, DGAZ, HNU and HND on cdn side...

    I was losing money on BlackBerry until two weeks ago, but I am finally in green.

    I hold BlackBerry stocks in very confident way for it to go back to its former glory and make me a millionaire.

    Anyway, last week I bought USU kept it for two days and made some quick money, but it seems to be losing momentum now.


    I also did EVRY, DRL and CBAK. I would recommend these for you to look up.

    I wouldn't call myself trader because last week was the first time I had made five trades.

    Since late 2012 I have been buying only and that was BBRY only.

    Maybe I am a trader, but that is what I have done so far.

    Whenever I get involved in a stock the first thing I do is kiss good bye to the money, then I hope for the best. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose but from my experience trying to make up for a loss by buying other stock is just asking for trouble.
    I bought 1000 shares of BB when it was it the low to mid 7's so at the moment I'm doing ok but that you change in in heartbeat so my rule for investing in stocks is the same as going to a casino in Vegas - Only gamble what you can afford to lose and stop.

    That's the right mentality if you're investing in stocks. I applaud you sir. While tips and updates are all fine and dandy, stocks are never a sure thing.

    I follow these 3 guidelines for my personal portfolios:
    • Only invest what you can afford to lose
    • Never invest when emotions are involved
    • Ride out the negative, profit on the positive

    Lost?

    You only lost, if you choose to sell for a lower price than you purchased, - and BlackBerry has never been a good place for short term traders.

    Think long term - and you will Earn money - not loose.

    Sit on your shares - one day you can sell them for more than you purchased them for, - lots more

    You are making assumptions based on your own hopes and emotions... not based on facts.

    Other than another larger company stepping in and buying BlackBerry I don't see the current upward trend continuing very long. Don't think you can expect a sustained increase until the launch of some new products with successfully sales figures and a clear indication that BES12 really was what everyone was waiting for.... none of which will happen before the next quarterly report.

    Facts only becomes facts after they have happened. Loss / Earning always has to take the factor of time into consideration.

    The only Fact now, is that we don't know what will be the situation 3-5 years from today

    Where as you are correct that you don't truely know the scale of a turn around or a companies profitablitity until financial reports are filed and released; you also have to take into consideration both the public sentiment at the current time and the news surrounding the industry. Right now sentiment toward blackberry is trending upward both with consumers and the business/security sector. Couple that with the negative news aimed at the competitions lack of security and vulnerabilty to viruses and interceptions and you begin to get a better picture of the possibilty of a sustainable return to prominence for blackberry. The only blackberry I own is a playbook so no emotional ties and I'm not canadian. Always remember to take in the whole picture not just parts.

    As a value investor, I find that when I have trouble finding a cheap stock, that usually means stock markets are over bought.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong holding cash. I reduced my BlackBerry position by a third and can't even find one stock that is worth the money.

    After reading the Rolling Stone article about how the big guys used no/low interest loans from US/tax-payer to turn around and scam the commodities market, I question why people go into schools and shoot them up instead of JP Morgan and the likes. I'm not advocating shooting them up, just question killing little kids when there are sociopaths screwing over millions of people in worse ways than some local school or military base could.

    I believe the big financial guys are big time into insider trading and all the other bending-the-rules crap, and they get away with it without prison, only fines, *IF* they get caught. Someone steals something under a thousand dollars to eat to live, and that person goes to jail.

    Just hang on to your shares, if BlackBerry stays the course, they will keep rising in value.

    I'm holding some shares. I'm not too concerned with this investment and where it sits. The Android phones are quickly becoming commodities that will all be the same. Apple is going to dominate. IPhone six will sell like nothing has ever sold before. But iPhone gives you one type of experience and there is room for something different in the smartphone market. Keep in mind that this market will eventually be the entire world. Everyone will carry a smartphone. A niche player in a market the size of the world is going to be nice.

    Also apple is not going too hard for enterprise or for the servicing of corporate communication devices. BlackBerry has a nice shot there. And that market is and will be huge.
