2014-04-10 SPECULATIVE BUY Don Lato

Done a very good job in trying to right the ship.  Down at $8.50, it is probably not in a bad position for a trade.  He does not know if it will exist in a couple of years.  For a trade you can probably make some money on the way to $10.  Trading to him is a 3-4 week period.

2014-04-07 DON'T BUY Zachary Curry

Recent decline is not a buying opportunity.  CEO is prepared to do things like he has done.  It has to do with how they get value out of the BBM.  A tough business.

2014-04-01 COMMENT Benj Gallander

One of the key decisions you should make on this is whether or not you should take a tax loss. If you have gains to write it off against, that could be prudent tax planning. He is a believer in the CEO, John Cheng, but also a believer that a turnaround takes a huge amount of time. Revenue has dropped 64%, which is scary, but at the same time costs were tremendously cut. Took a lot of write-offs again this past quarter and it wouldn’t surprise him if it happened again next quarter. Happy to hold it at this point given his Buy-In price.

2014-04-01 SELL Christine Poole

The stock kind of ran up with a new CEO being put in place. Reported less of a loss than was anticipated and that was done through aggressive cost-cutting, which was the easy part of the equation. Revenue line did disappoint. The big question and overhang on the stock is how are they going to get revenues to start going the other way. This will take a while. If she owned, she would probably bite the bullet and take a loss.

2014-03-31 DON'T BUY Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

The use of stop losses is very important. It took him out of the name, which limited his losses. It is interesting where we are sitting in the cycle right now. He was really impressed with what John Cheng had to say. He would not dare to put this in any of his core portfolios. Has no idea what is going to happen to this.

2014-03-26 COMMENT Brian Acker, CA

Quite a bit of good news has already been priced in. Friday morning’s conference call on earnings is going to be very important. Everybody is going to be looking at it for signs of a turnaround. They want to make sure that the “cash bleed” has stopped and maybe the company will be cash flow positive. If this doesn’t turn out well, he expects the stock will drop to the $7.60 US level and will hold there for a while.

2014-02-27 DON'T BUY Paul Harris, CFA

You need to see better execution.  They are in a difficult situation because competitors are so far ahead of them.  Industry is going through some material change and that is why Apple is not doing so well.  Maybe BB can come out of this very well.  They have to consolidate their enterprise business.  They have some good quality software business in their company, if they execute well on those you could see some strength.

It is hard for him to understand their technology and where their technology is going. The most fascinating thing is the number of people who are now buying in. There is now some major, smart money moving in.

Can’t make head or tails of this company. He would not be playing this stock. It’s in the hands of speculators or traders.

2014-02-04 SELL Christine Poole

Have some big supporters. New CEO is very well respected and has decided to focus on the business client and get out of the hardware business because it is so commoditized. The future is still very cloudy. Still somewhat speculative. She would put her money somewhere else.

2014-01-27 WATCH Peter Brieger

Two things have struck them recently. The 1st is that Mr. Chen has come in to turn it around. The other thing that popped up last week is that they have had a great vote of confidence by the US military. Their security system is so good that the military doesn’t want to abandon it. It has had a good run recently so he would stand back and watch.

2014-01-14 TOP PICK Brian Acker, CA

Very speculative so wouldn’t put your whole portfolio into it. These are very early days and he thinks John Chen is doing a fantastic job. Forget about the handset. What you are doing now is buying a software company. In another year or 2, we will have 5 billion smart phones out there. Secure communications going forward will become critically important. This is a software company that you are buying right around Book Value.

2014-01-10 COMMENT Patrick Horan

Their long-term vision is very elusive because of the change in management. This is a rebirth, the ability for new management to position the company and to talk about what it is going to do. From what he can see, they are going to be very much more a niche product versus a consumer product, which would be a very good thing. The question is, how do they define that niche and what inroads will the competition make as they are trying to define themselves. Right now you have a very large Short position and a lot of scared Shorts so he would think there is some upside in the short term. If you see a 20% gain from here, Sell and move on.

Biggest mistake last year was buying into this company. Thinks that John Chen is a good turn around person. He turned around Sybase. Feels this company has tremendous potential. Has better than $1 billion in revenue every quarter and still has a pretty good balance sheet. You have to watch that Prem Watsa doesn’t hold too much sway.

2014-01-06 SPECULATIVE BUY Larry Berman CFA, CMT, CTA

Everyone is going to have a smart phone in the next 5 to 10 years and BB will participate in this market.  They will not be number 1 but they could be number 5-8 and still make good money.  It’s cheap and undervalued but it could be years to get to $20-$25.  You might be able to trade it up to $10 in the short term.  Will be volatile over the next two years.

I want to see the New BlackBerry. Hope it blows Apple out of the water!

Positive reviews of testing so far . This has a double component to it . An increased 40% chance of creating a superior multi tasking product with proper testing before release. Also takeover bids are far more likely to pop up if only to kill competition . Add to that company value is really around 15 $ and change right now . If it doesn't price up before Christmas I'd be very surprised . A buy to hold
