SFA? In any event, Mr. Chen can't do worse than Heins & Co. At least he was able to take another tech company and sell it off.
An excellent article in today's NY Times; Watsa jumps to the front of the line if there is a bankruptcy, has a 6% load deal with BlackBerry and makes a fortune if (and nothing is a bigger if) BBRY stock goes over $10.
For ordinary shareholders? Not so much.
