2015-08-17 HOLD Ryan Bushell

They are trying to evolve toward more software solutions.  Their user base has declined.  If they can go enterprise that will help.  Capital is impaired and there is no dividend, unlike energy producers where there is a road to recovery.

2015-08-14 COMMENT Kash Pashootan

This is too risky for him to invest in, and from a dividend perspective it doesn’t fit his model. At this point the likelihood of it becoming what it once was is fairly low. Very speculative. Thinks there are better places to see a return on your investments in the next 6-12 months.

2015-08-05 PAST TOP PICK Michael Smedley

(A Top Pick Aug 21/14. Down 7.05%.) John Chen is very impressive, and is pretty while achieving what his plan set out to do. He has downgraded the hopeless handheld business. Has done something good in software in the QNX system in cars. His whole security theory and application is still totally superior. Somewhere ahead, there is some good information coming once again.

2015-08-04 COMMENT Benj Gallander

Thinks at some point they may be able to grow their revenue. John Chen did very well in the past at Sybase. There was a turnaround there and a take out. The bigger the boat is, the longer it takes to turn. He is happy holding this, but is not looking for anything happening quickly.

2015-07-28 HOLD Jim Huang

In the last couple of years, they have had new management, a shifting of focus and new products. Product has been somewhat lacklustre. Their phones are decent, but they haven’t had huge upticks. It is hard to compete with others. The issue right now is their transition to software focus, but that will take time. The good thing about this company right now is that they have a lot of cash. This will be more of a trading stock between now and the next little while.

2015-07-22 COMMENT Allan Meyer

This makes his list because it doesn’t have excess of debt, but it ranks in the bottom half of all the companies that he looks at. It wouldn’t be on his list of companies that he would be buying. There is no dividend. They seem to be really working hard to surface the value of the company.

2015-07-13 COMMENT John O'Connell, CFA

John Chen is doing a good job of turning the business around. The hardware business continues to be very, very challenged, and it is a lousy business to be in. It’s a software game now and they seem to be making some good progress. Their security features are very attractive. The question is can Chen make something out of this. It is still very early days in a very challenged environment. He thinks the stock is worth not much more than $15. If there is some takeover speculation and the stock gains in strength, don’t believe it, but take your money and move on.

He still likes the company.  You get to the point where you want to say ‘can we move it along a bit’ and so far we haven’t.  His patience is getting a little thin, but he is hanging in.  It would be nice to see this thing in action.

The little break in the upward trend caused a little concern, but he still likes it. Took a small amount, but then realized he was too early. It is in a sector that should do well.

2015-05-25 BUY on WEAKNESS John Zechner

He likes this longer-term and thinks it gets taken out in the next couple of years. Loves what John Chen is doing. Likes the morphing over to the software. There is a lot of value in those assets in the company. However, he has taken a little bit of money off the table in the short term as he thinks devices are really going to disappoint in the next round of device sales. He would buy back under $12.

2015-05-13 COMMENT Michael Decter

Thinks they are making some progress in transforming the company, but their problem is that they have a tiny market share in the phone business. They are up against really, really tough competitors. This is now more of a play on what is their intellectual property position worth in a liquidation scenario.

Mr. Chen and his management team are continuing to append their security model. One understands now that it is not going to be a hardware challenge to Apple, android, etc. This is going to take time. Numbers have been getting better.

He likes this company. Thinks John Chen has been doing what he said he was going to do. He cut costs and is profitable. The next goal over the next year is to increase revenues. He is happy to Hold the stock. It is certainly not out of the woods. They have a lot of money in the bank as well as the backing of Fairfax Financial.

2015-05-01 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (1)

It is almost like it is an asset value play at this stage and probably worth $14-$17. CEO has done a great job and got it from $6-$12, but he doesn’t think there is an amazing amount left. It is hard to value and it is hard to look at the earnings to find value.

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
