greek election coming up sunday. it will be a mess?

Do you think $STD bottomed? It's being lumped with the bad when it does not belong there.

the $AAPL herd at SA is scary. The anti-RIM group is now gone, but the bulls for $RIMM are new users. That can't be bullish for $RIMM. I'm still watching them but suspect they will have a weak result this thursday. they may have a strong outlook for the year on bb10.
  • have seen some of the new stuff from $RIMM, which I think will be recived well by carriers in general. Currently consulting for two, one Central Europe, the other from Middle East on their BB strategy, both organisations are seeing significant & different reasons for committing a large amount of budget to RIM over the next 24 months.

    The handset experience is a gamechanger imo, they just need to get the form factor right for consumer space.

    form factor will be tricky. the touch screen experience is usable but not great. keyboard is great but must be dropped.

    Trying a new site: - ranking by picks and return is secondary. fun site for interacting with other users. covers london, toronto markets, and us.

Check out $BCE and $RCI. And $TU. In Canada. It's not like $FTE. The nimble cheaper plans offered by start-ups still can't compete with $BCE. It's either getting a subsidized phone on a 3 year plan with $BCE $TU $RCI or pay $100-800 but be on no plan with wind mobile, public mobile.

$RIMM - Carrier relationships have always been a strength, and lately it was a weakness in the US. Short-term BB7 may continue to be a weak-point for shares. Shares can fall short-term as a result. I'd like to see unit sales rise for BB7/6/5 in the emerging markets. They have to build the user-base before BB10 is released.

I'm holding back on taking a long position in $RIMM but am monitoring it regularly.

Down 10% in January?. Same as me. Where were your losses from? On my end I got short squeezed on $NFLX and dropped around 4% there. $ZNGA on facebook IPO excitement was the other 4%.
  • my obstinate stance regards $EPV - $NFLX - $EDC

    I was being inflexible too. Before that, I was flexible. Flexible did well. I was flexible again and have started to get some back from the $NFLX loss.

  • Had to cut losses on $NFLX too

...right you are keep the shorts & you'll be happy ;D
...why do you invest in $STD ? ...I also want to make a big investment in real life ...good dividends but risky ...isn't it ? ;D
  • Ruud,

    $STD for divs of course , am also of the view that the stock is bottomed, their exposure to Eurozone not as heavy as some believe. LatAm is a key market for them which is performing very well, also their UK retails banking operations are performing. Conviction long.

  • are right sooo I will buy 10 000€ of $STD shares ...thank you :))))))))))))

  • ...LevDAX 4x ISIN DE000A0SNAM8, WKN A0SNAM is fantastic & better than a perfect dream even if can fall more than 50% in short-term if you wait between 6 months & 2 years you'll make more than 100% + a big €/$ rate win guaranteed ;D & keep some high-dividend & high return bonds ...for the bills ;D

do you connect people on facebook? i looked you up but cannot find. you're one of the few who sounds like they know what they are doing.
  • No Chris,

    I do not have Facebook, deleted my account a long time ago ... worthless venture for me, I prefer to meet my friends & discuss things in real life not via a website :)

    As for knowing what I am doing, am not so sure, but have been fairly successful in my real life portfolio, this is just fun, v high risk positions, high volume - flip trades etc.
    I am probably 70% long invested in high dividend yields, entered a lot of long term positions in early summer 2009 & have 30% of my fund balance on short - mid term swing trades, mostly ETF, tech & telecom
