2014-12-11 HOLD Michael Smedley

Stock is holding in nicely at around the $11 level. It is clearly business oriented and security oriented. Likes John Chen and thinks he is very impressive. He knows what to do. Handhelds is not a good area, but they are steering towards software.

2014-12-09 DON'T BUY Patrick Horan

Likes what management has done, but doesn’t like the sector in general. There is a lot of competition, especially from the Chinese manufacturers of hand sets. This company has done very well at turning itself around, but because of the sector and that he thinks margins are coming down, he would not be in this at this time.

2014-12-03 PAST TOP PICK Brian Acker, CA

(A Top Pick Jan 14/14. Up 33.24%.) This company was down and out, but what he saw and still sees is that you are literally buying a software company, not a device company. He was buying it at Book or a little under Book, which is impossible to do anywhere in this market. Will hold this for 3-5 years and see what happens. There is a lot more gain to be had.

2014-11-19 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (2)

This company is really doing what they said they were going to do. The problem is that perception is really against them. Their last quarterly reports have been beating expectations. Market is questioning whether they can continue to execute. From what he sees so far, John Chen is doing an excellent job. Expects the numbers will move into the green fairly soon and the stock will probably move higher.

2014-11-17 BUY Benj Gallander

Likes John Chen.  He looks at management.  Chen has a good track record and has the ability to turn the company around.  Balance sheet is still not so bad.  Fairfax is still behind them.  It will turn around.  It is just a question of time.

2014-11-17 COMMENT John Wilson

John Chen is a very good businessman and very clear thinker and probably exactly the right person for this company when they needed it. This is never going to be the BlackBerry that it was. The business it is in is never going to see the kind of growth profile you get when you get a hot handset trend. Chen has a good idea in his security thinking and he wouldn't bet against this. Risk profile is still too high for him.

2014-11-12 COMMENT Brendan Caldwell

Rumours of their demise have clearly been exaggerated. New management has caused a bit of resurgence in the stock. Technically it has broken through a level that it had been bumping its head against.

2014-11-11 COMMENT Bill Carrigan

Chart shows it is forming a huge symmetrical triangle, and usually that is followed by a breakout, either up or down. He expects it will be up rather than down, so Shorting this would be a bad idea. Just made a new 52-week high. His rule is that the 1st 52-week high will not be the last one. He expects there will be more.

2014-11-07 DON'T BUY Keith Richards

This had a long-term downtrend from 2010. It still officially is in a downtrend, but attempting to break out. Forming a bit of a descending triangle and there's very strong resistance at around $12.50. If this breaks through $12 on volume, and can stay there a few days, it will break the bigger picture downtrend and will have broken out of the triangle. To him that would target the old high of $17 and, further on, it could even get into the $20 area. Don't buy it unless it breaks the $12.50 level and stays there for several days.

2014-10-28 COMMENT Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

He is not buying into the turnaround story. Found that the Passport was too big for his hand, and he can't see this taking off. John Cheng has done a great job. He just can't see this company being a long-term standalone vehicle.

2014-10-20 DON'T BUY David Baskin

Their share of the smart phone market is now under 1%.  They have a new device out – passport.  Does not think they can compete against Samsung or Apple in the consumer market and they are now getting buried in the business market.  The patents are getting less valuable and the cash is dwindling so he does not know why you would buy it.

2014-10-20 BUY Chris Hensen

Don’t make it a big part of your portfolio.  He is a large shareholder and he also owns the debt.  He is confident in the turnaround and that they will leverage the assets.  They should turn a profit next year.

2014-09-24 BUY Bruce Campbell (2)

Starting to see a real turnaround. Today is their big day with the rollout of their new Passport. Likes the company from both a fundamental standpoint, where the numbers are improving, as well as from a technical standpoint, looking at the supply/demand where demand is in control of that picture. They may never be at the stage they were before, but they can certainly grow their business from here. As they reinvent themselves and take that in new directions, they’ll really start to gain market share back.

2014-09-24 BUY Paul Harris, CFA

They can certainly compete in the business side.  They have a strong franchise and some good leverage with people in that area.  The issue is only if they can leverage their existing franchise.

This is a non-story.  It is speculative.  He is attracted to turn-arounds, but not like this.  Prefers AAPL-O.

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
