2016-11-15 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

Feels this is still pretty speculative in terms of their transition from hardware to software. They are not making any money. There is a very little visibility as to what this company is going to look like a couple of years out.

2016-11-03 SHORT Jason Mann

It is a small short for him.  They no longer produce handsets.  They have a patent portfolio and cash.  Competitors aren’t buying them out, but just hire their best employees away from them.

2016-10-27 BUY Brooke Thackray

Tech tends to do well from October into December and often into January.  We have seen an uptick.  It looks in pretty good shape.  Not a bad place to buy but not a long term hold.

2016-10-07 COMMENT David Cockfield

He has a couple of clients who insist on owning this, but it is not something he would recommend. Thinks management has slimmed-down. They had some very smart people. By surviving and changing its emphasis to software, it is interesting, but doesn’t see it racing up at any particular point in time. They have to come in with a couple of good quarters to show that the strategy is working.

2016-10-05 WAIT Brendan Caldwell

Tried to get back into the smart phone business, but like others in the industry, it is no more. Thinks the current management is going to have to show that the software, technology is going to drive their growth. This is a “wait and see” situation.

2016-10-05 WATCH Keith Richards

He likes to buy stocks that are emerging from a consolidation or in an uptrend.  This one is doing neither.  You have flat highs and descending lows.  Wait and see if it breaks out.

2016-09-27 COMMENT Kash Pashootan

Given its risk profile, this is not something that would make it into his conservative portfolio. This is kind of at a fork in the road. Will they spinoff the hardware division? He doesn’t think they will part ways with the hardware. The losses in that space have subsided over the last year. This is too much of a bet on a turnaround.

(Market Call Minute.) Thinks it has a lot of upside and likes what John Chen is doing, but to turn around a big ship like this takes time.

2016-08-29 HOLD Brian Madden

CEO is very well remunerated at $89 million. However, it is not entirely all recurring compensation. He earns about $3 million a year, but when he joined the company, he got a very lumpy one time signing bonus, which was comprised of a lot of restricted stock. It remains to be seen whether he will meet the performance criteria, and actually realize on that, because it is tied to whether the shares outperform the NASDAQ, which has not been happening. Buying “value plays” in technology is a tough way to make money. Incentives motivate behaviour, and looking at the conditions attached to John Chen’s pay packet, the 3-year anniversary date is mid-November, so if you own the stock he would stick around to see what comes up between now and the anniversary date.

2016-08-11 HOLD Ross Healy

He still likes it.  No one has come close to touching the quality of their network.  It is hard to be anything else but patient and positive.  The software is going gangbusters.  He does not know what they are doing messing around with phones.  There are elements of the company that are worth a lot.

2016-07-26 COMMENT William Chin

A tough case, because at first it was a good gadget maker, but has now fallen behind the iPhones and Android’s, and is now trying to reinvent itself. It needs a catalyst to move it higher or lower, but there is a lot of uncertainty about its prospect.

It is difficult to evaluate.  They don’t meet his criteria, but he does own FFH-T and they in turn own a lot of BB-T

2016-06-28 COMMENT Benj Gallander

Had a huge loss of over $600 million in the past quarter. Often one of the good things to do is to back a good jockey, and John Chen is a good jockey. Thinks he has the ability to turn this around. When you have a company like this that is very, very popular and very much in the news, if and when it turns, it can turn in a nanosecond. Thinks it is a worthwhile play.

2016-06-06 COMMENT Jim Huang

This has been sort of left in the dust by Android and IOS phones. It looks like they will stop making physical phones in the next couple of years as the market keeps getting smaller and smaller. However, John Chen has done a good job increasing the software and service revenue, which is where they want to be eventually. At some point the company will be turned around and sold at a good price. There will be more bumps before that happens.

2016-05-09 WEAK BUY Larry Berman CFA, CMT, CTA

There seems to be some uncertainly.  Chen thinks they can make it as a product builder, but also in other areas.  There is a risk they don’t execute well.  Their products are very, very good, but the business market may not do well.  It is not a turnaround story any time soon.  It is at the bottom of the range so consider accumulating it.

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
