2015-04-22 COMMENT Jerome Hass

In the past, he has Shorted this, but more as a temporary Short. When he looks at a name like this, he is happy to be on the sidelines. The industry is changing so fast.

2015-04-14 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

(Market Call Minute.) Transitioning from hardware to software, but it is taking a long time. The service revenues they are getting from their older devices are actually much higher versus the newer ones. They are not expected to make money for a few years.

2015-04-10 DON'T BUY David Cockfield

(Owns a very small amount of this, but at clients’ direction.) He has great difficulty analysing their future prospects. Right now, they have done a lot better than a lot of people have thought. They seem to be surviving, but it is a tough environment. If you invest in this, you are not going to get much of a dividend. It could languish in this particular zone for a long time.

2015-04-07 COMMENT Alex Ruus

An extremely volatile stock. Have gone from being a leader in the smart phone business to a niche player in this market. The franchise is probably a little bit undervalued here. In the short term, they are still not making any significant amounts of money. They have an OK balance sheet. Feels John Chen is doing the right things. He doesn’t see any near-term catalysts for this. It might be a good trading stock.

2015-04-01 COMMENT Patrick Horan

This is always a big trading stock. Rumours are going to allow you to make 10% if you are on the right side. He is starting to warm up to this one a bit. His biggest problem with this is really the industry. There are companies out of China that are coming out with ultra low cost handsets. The handset side is probably going to go to almost zero margins for this company. The software side is very attractive. Security is a really nice niche in this business.

2015-03-27 DON'T BUY Darren Sissons

He thinks you have missed the boat on this. It was a stellar story from 2000 up to about 2008. After that, it has been all downhill. It has the best email system, but the market is fixated on the lowest app, and as a consequence, the ecosystem that supports that, continues to get smaller. It is now a corporate product, not a retail product.

2015-03-05 BUY Brian Acker, CA

He likes this turnaround story.  It was one of his ‘coming out of the blue’ picks.  This means the stock price has a positive transit of EBV -3.  Likes what John Chan is doing.  It does not have a model price because we don’t have earnings yet.   This is a software company.  The handsets are a circus.

2015-02-17 COMMENT Colin Stewart

Could be worth zero or could be worth a lot more. The risk is the technological obsolescence and the worry that people who are using blackberries, are all going to switch to iPhones. Have been trying to convert more to a software based platform, benefiting from the strength of their software system. With the pretty cheap valuation and the strong balance sheet, he wouldn’t be surprised to see this as a takeout candidate.

2015-02-13 COMMENT Brendan Caldwell

This is a tough one. The new CEO seems to be getting some traction. People seem to believe that he is able to deliver. The trick is whether they can get the new product to market, and gain some traction, remains to be seen.

Management has done a surprisingly good job here.  It is too risky for him and he does not see a future for Blackberry handsets.

2015-02-06 COMMENT Chris Hensen

John Chen had been put in place to turn the company around, and the big shareholders are going to give him leeway. Has brought costs down from a quarterly run rate of $2 billion down to $500 million a quarter. They are re-launching products and hopefully they’ll get some traction there. Expectations are very low and the market share is very low, so there is some room for some improvement. Trying to transition more to a software business and away from handsets, but that will take time. As they refocus on the mobile device management segment in corporate enterprise over the next 2 years, we should see the benefits. The last 3 quarters have been free cash flow positive.

2015-02-03 COMMENT Benj Gallander

When John Chen came on he felt they had a good jockey. He has a lot of insight into the industry. The company has a lot of value. They still have huge, huge revenues. Thinks this could go up quite a bit. When a well known company like this has takeover rumours, it can move very, very quickly up, and potentially down.

2015-02-03 DON'T BUY Darren Sissons

His view on this is that it is a bit of a broken story, so he wouldn’t put his money at risk where it might not work. He is not aware of any tech company that has ultimately turned around very, very successfully and gone on to become something else, especially a single product story.

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.

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.

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
