    Had a look at the personnel profiles of this Boston based minnow and I really don't understand how they can carry such weight. Johnson himself floated around Toronto for a few years in various capacities before landing in Boston 6yrs ago. His profile states he is a Board member but he isn't listed on their own list of BM. His profile says he is entitled to use the CFA suffix. Whilst the quality of this company would never earn them my business, they can inflict tremendous harm as we saw yesterday and this will inevitably impact sales.

    Could just be that they are pitching a story that the street is very primed to believe. I mean look at the short interest in BBRY, clearly people are not too positive on this firm.

    In short, the view on the street is Blackberry sucks. Confirmation bias abounds, people just look for evidence to confirm their view, and then hit the button. That is likely why a minnow like Detwiler has such bite.

    Looks like he was possibly a Canadian too. Why would you do that? Check his profile in the link below.

    I'm sure of that. I suspect he is on a mission.

    This article was perfectly timed as the market was awaiting news either way. Just look at the triangle pattern that had formed in the $ BBRY chart. Good or bad new was going to cause a break out either way. And it did, down.

    The sharks have smelled blood in the water when it comes to BlackBerry for quite some time and any negative piece on the company seems to really do a number on the stock and even small fries like Detwiler can get in on this as a result and be taken seriously. I really do hope that Detwiler gets hit pretty hard by the SEC and OSC for their actions, but they'll probably get a slap on the wrist and told to play nice.

    BBRY is so easily "spoofed" and panicked that almost any bad news has a horrible effect. This is the price any company pays when there are the rumors of takeover, etc.

    Blackberry will have to fight to regain its relevance. They can do it but it will be a tough fight. I am sure there were reasons but the Q should have been first.

    One randomly interesting thing is that the company (BlueFin) that published a positive supply chain check note on BlackBerry recently This Morning: SilverSpring Soars, BBRY ‘Aggressive’ Component Orders - Tech Trader Daily - Barrons.com was formed by a group of employees that split off from Detwiler a decade ago.

    The BlueFin analyst who wrote that note is their director of research and a former VP at Semtech, so he has a bit of knowledge. He also had been following BlackBerry for a while before and had some negative things to say a year ago, so seems to be pretty credible.
