Single Digit Stock Price Makes RedBerry The New BlackBerry

Tyler Durden's picture

First it was Research In Motion, then in an act of desperation (remember, it's not GMAC, it's Ally Bank although it can't IPO no matter what) it changed its name to Blackberry. And while we doubt it will happen, perhaps today's plunge of the stock price back to single digits should result in the final and correct name of the company that may have run out of kitchen sinks: RedBerry.

At least you CAN eat blackberrys, and make pie from them.

LOL @ Karl Denninger.   I hope that windbag lost his shirt.

I concur, he is always pimping the stock on his BS site.

Blackberry must not be the spying platform of choice for the NSA.

Since it was identified that Blackberry could be very effectively used in riots/revolutions in 2011. The stock has never been the same.

"It's legally questionable whether RIM could take any action to monitor BBM messages," he said. "It would be unlawful for RIM to identify users sending such material without appropriate authorisation from police or the courts, as this would involve searching users' messages. So, oddly, RIM could face more legal issues if it tried to take action than if it does not."

 Broadcasting on BBM was particularly effective in organising people on the streets and identifying targets with – as one rioter put it – "military precision". The "broadcast" feature allows users to instantly send the same piece of information to all their contacts, sometimes running into the hundreds.

Countries BB operates in can demand access to the encryption.  Since 2010 it publicized that Saudis and India demanded access.

"BlackBerry caved to Saudi demands: rights group"



So maybe, it is the other way people ditching their BB's and Twitters because they will be monitored (though what they would change to who really knows lol)

Once, just once would I like to wake up and see that the futures didn't ramp 15+ points overnight. Is this too much to ask?

And yet, despite what was considered a bad quarter, DEBT FREE Blackberry ADDED to its cash position.  Interesting.......

They should build a smart phone made of gold that can shoot bullets.  It will be a best seller.

You know the rules, we're not supposed to talk about that.

Besides, you still can't eat it.

Needs a dessert topping feature.

And maybe some cowbell, too.

They changed their flag, they changed RIM to Blackberry, they "bifuckated" their language and culture, they're changing their population to Muslim and Chinese .... I smell the perpetual Canadian identity crisis !

you are absolutely clueless about canadian culture, so no need to spout shit about something that's beyond your grasp

So is the Karl Denninger back in BBRY yet?  Or just his followers?

See Pump-n-dump Denninger

moneybots's picture

Denninger hasn't pumped and dumped anything.  He is a big believer in the Z10, having bought one and road tested it, explaining in great detail why he prefers it over any other smart phone.

Rentier's picture

Karl the clown didn't even know about Samsung's Knox feature until it was pointed out to him.  He is Fanboi of what he has, as he thinks whatever he has is the best.  Hence, why he used to pimp Android phones on his site over IOS before going to crapberry.

That SOB deserves what he gets. After his big laugh IRT the gold smash of the last few weeks, I hope he's butt hurt, especially with all of the hyping that he's done for Blackberry and their new, better phone.

Rentier's picture

His backside is still hurting from few years ago when the fed did a switcheroo on him and he got burned on his holdings.

It's a holiday in Canada. Turn those machines back on!

Denninger could fix it in minutes, he says.

Oh yes.

well done - you've created an oxymoron

Not necessarily.  Never had roadkill stuck in your grill or the wheel hub or undercarriage?  You've got to pick up the roadkill and transport it to cook it too right?

The DoD will step in and save RIM/Blackberry just as before when they were about to get sued to death for brazenly stealing boatloads of technology.

Naked short selling bear raid,   DTCC market maker special,  short squeeze to follow in 9,8,7...  faster than JP Morgan's gold position flip.  35 percent of the shares was short?

Although last weeks short squeeze prediction is laughable in hind sight.

Stay out of the big boys ways.

Lets see what plays out in the next few days, might be worth a nice long. Even tho most commentators are negative on BBRY it's still worth watching. Sorta like the USD, supposed to be in the 30's by now but looks to be headed up....maybe 100 or so?

why did the  Blackberry cross the road? to get in to the red...........berry
