wow...You guys are a little out of it.

First, don't just look at the stocks performance by itself, look at it compared to the market (s) as a whole. If you do that, Rimm (with it's beta factored in) has been OUT performing the market, meaning it's relatively strong against the market, meaning if the market upticks, rimm should shoot up. Conversely, if the market continues it downtrend, Rimm might outperform the market for a little while, until it reaches a breaking point (buyers dry up as a result of lost confidence in the market, not necessarily the stock)

......

Don't panic when stocks go down suddenly and don't get excited when they go up suddenly.

Stocks are a long term deal anyway usually. Look at RIMM over the last 5 years, its ridiculous.

I think you're looking at the price per trade, not the price per share.

There are a few places online where you can buy as little as $20 worth of a stock at the time. I think this is a good buy opportunity.

I say let the price per share fall. If you know how to trade you would not be losing money.

what goes up must come down, the opposite is also true.

I agree. Whatever drop RIM suffers now will be more than made up when they release the new handsets.

I waited to sell my Sprint stock until this last week when it got up to about $9.00, and then turned around and spent it all on RIM!

eh, you buy some now, and some then. It averages out.

I still have that I bought much much lower before the split.

Default BlackBerry sales

As for the iPhone 3G, although the release of the iPhone last year did nothing but BOOST BlackBerry sales after disappointed buyers switched to BlackBerry. I do think this model will cut into BlackBerry sales a bit. It may cut RIM's market share by as much as 10%, but I would be surprised
