I don't know what I would put 100k into RIM right now, if I had the cash to do so... I've bought it at higher prices, and still have it, and it was too much to just cash out as it fell like it did.
I am one of those dreamers that thinks RIM will survive this. They are no worse now that Apple was in 1984-86 when their stock dropped to $8-9, and they fired Jobs. I am not thinking RIM can ever get to where Apple is now, but I do believe they can rebound from this.
Asides from all that, they have thousands of patents they own, 77 million current active customers who pay them monthly for service, and I just don't foresee in the NEAR future getting a message "your BlackBerry service has been discontinued dues to the fact the company fell apart over night. Sorry".
