    This is good news.

    I just submitted my paper work for direct investing yesterday. I did so for the soul purpose of buying RIM stock. (Using some real estate cash flow, to diversify my portfolio) While I'm getting ripped on, mercilessly, by friends/co-workers about still using a BlackBerry. Or, how bad their stock is doing. Or how the company is going under. I'm going to be buying shares because I believe BB10 is going to be a winner. I believe BB10 is going to change this negative sentiment towards RIM that seems to be everywhere. I can already see it happening. Surly others must as well? The RIM news stories are taking a positive turn. The "feel" of the news stories in recent weeks, have taken on a new flavour. Its good to see/read.

    Best thing you can do is to keep your mouth shut after you buy the shares. Then one day when the stock triples you can roll up to work in your ferrari with a "rimstck" vanity plate and tell them to kiss you where the sun dont shine.

    What do you do if the stock sinks three times?

    Please go to a qualified stock trader In person. Not on TV or radio or here..
    Buying stocks can really make you loads of money or you can lose everything you put in. If you're not well versed on the complexities of stock trader, or if you haven't got cash that you are *willing to lose* then you might want to take a long hard second look.
    For all the armchair prognosticators and analysts, there is a select few who really knows what they're talking about. Don't jump in until you fully understand and are prepared to use money you are willing to lose.

    Just a word of caution.

    The easiest way is to contact your bank account manager. He'll handle that for you.
    It is not the cheapest solution (by far), but the easiest. Watch out the bank fees (in and out) if you want to buy a small amount; usually you can discuss them, don't be shy and ask.

    That is excellent advice, but as far as RIM is concerned, it has been stated in a lot of places that their stock will never EVER go to "Zero Dollars" in the short term because their assets are worth around $5 per share. If you bought in at $6.50, the most you could reasonably lose is about 20%. If you buy in now at almost $12 per share, you could lose half your investment. I bought in at ~$13 and personally believe that is upside for me to be profitable... that is, coming out with like 100% profit (especially since the money I invested was in a waaaaay underperforming mutual fund that was returning something like .5% per year, which is lower than the rate of inflation, which was actually LOSING money year over year... so investing that money in RIM was, for me, still a gamble, but in my heart AND mind, more like a sure thing.

    Right. But I believe Crackkookie meant "where", not "how"
    Also, the bank contact should bring some advice and caution to her action, hopefully (no guarantee, badly).

    hum ... looking at the Nasdac partners' transaction fees, looks like my bank is not that expensive, finally (€7 / trans on a foreign stock)
