    "We think"... is what is quoted. Therefore they have no idea. The guy quoted is in investments...he is nobody to be speaking on security.

    It's based on his discussions with people who DO know what they're talking about.

    Peter Misek is pretty well respected analyst who has been following BlackBerry for many many years now.

    You're reading what you want to read into that article. They don't know, and are guessing.

    Here's how Misek was described recently on Crackberry.

    Misek doesn't know anything. He was bearish on Blackberry stock pre-BB10 launch and everybody on Crackberry hated him. Then he was proven horribly wrong as BBRY stock price rose from the BB10 hype and he changed his tune. Everybody on Crackberry subsequently loved Misek! Then Q2 earnings report came out and Misek appears to be wrong again.

    All Misek has shown to be is wishy-washy and consistently (and hilariously) incorrect. Misek is one of the prime examples of how the forum is overly critical of critics and too supportive of advocates.

    Misek used to be extremely bearish on BlackBerry...until he actually tried a BB10 phone for himself at which point he changed his tune. He saw value in the product after a personal demo. He could have staid the course of his bearish predictions to save face and avoid being called "wishy washy", but he didn't.

    One of the main reasons he was wrong about BlackBerry last quarter was because BlackBerry was actually ramping up production on handsets which indicated they were doing OK sales wise. It was a logical conclusion to come to given that data.

    Many many respectable analysts besides Misek were also extremely shocked to hear BlackBerry post a loss. That's why BlackBerry's stock dropped so much, because the consensus across all analysts was expecting them do much better -- not just Misek. Also, you didn't mention that Misek was correct to be bullish on BlackBerry in the quarter before black Friday (where they posted a surprise profit) and the prior quarter as well.

    The truth is that analysts are not psychics. Being wrong comes with the job. They just interpret the data available to them (and that data is always limited otherwise it would be insider information). What's important is the quality of their analysis. Even the most well thought-out, evidence-based analysis can be wrong.

    An example closer to home is Crackberry Kevin and his prediction that we'd have instagram months ago. He wasn't wrong because he was trying to mislead anyone, or he simply "wanted it to be true" -- he had a source he trusted whose info turned out to be wrong. It happens to the best of us.
