2015-01-29 DON'T BUY Paul Harris, CFA

It is hard to see where it will go from here.  It is a difficult environment.  He thinks it would work better if Amazon bought them out.  He is not sure BB-T will be around in a year.

2015-01-22 DON'T BUY Stan Wong

They still have negative earnings, so it can’t be in his portfolio with negative earnings. He doesn’t see this turning in their favour. This is not a stock that he would own at this point.

The trend is still to the upside.  It is below its 20 day moving average, so it is a mixed technical picture.

2015-01-16 DON'T BUY Kash Pashootan

For a long time this has been extremely speculative, and too speculative for him. The future is uncertain. Anybody buying the stock is betting on the fact that they will be able to turn things around. He doesn’t feel there is enough evidence or data to make an educated decision on whether this company will turn it around or not. There are easier ways to pick your way through the market.

2015-01-14 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (2)

This is a company that has surprised to the upside in 4 of the last 5 quarters. That doesn’t mean they are profitable yet, but they certainly appear to be making a turn. Looking at the analysts’ consensus on the stock, it is still not a really loved stock. If you saw them produce some positive numbers and the analysts all revised up at the same time, the stock could have a bit of a move.

2015-01-13 COMMENT Paul Taylor

CEO has done a masterful job of trying to figure out where the company wants to be in its next life, but just too much of a punt at this point in time. Taking their core competencies, the brand, their technological advantage around security, they are in the midst of a transformation.

2015-01-06 COMMENT Jim Huang

This is on a nice comeback trail. The stock has come up since John Chen took over about a year ago. He has done a lot of right things, including cutting costs to get to cash flow breakeven and narrowed the focus of the company to enterprise business users as well as software. A lot of things are taking shape, so he really likes the prospects however, the current stock price cannot be justified based on the short-term earnings. It has a lot of challenges because of the very small market share as well as continuing to lose service revenue which is high margin. You have to make a bit of a bet on this, but he thinks John Chen will be successful. It won’t be quick and easy.

2015-01-05 BUY Ross Healy

The more things go on, the more he likes the stock. John Chen has lucked into other potential big winners. All of this Internet security stuff, such as Sony officers and Directors being told to use Blackberry only, that is advertising that you can’t buy. The security of the blackberry system is such that he suspects there will be a lot more of this. This is now a very, very interesting stock. He has an immediate target of $15 short-term, but followed by much higher targets.

2014-12-30 COMMENT Jerome Hass

Not a technologist, so can’t predict what a company like this is going to be doing in 5-10 years from now. Too difficult for him to wrap his head around as to what is going to happen down the road. He just doesn’t look at this name because of the nature of it.

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.

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
