So I haven't been following Blackberry for a while, but what's changed? It seems their smartphone business is on Life Support...are they just a services company now? Why would this stock rally to $45?

Just an update to my previous post. I think OP is sitting on 55% gain after today's gain.
I should have followed.

Anymore recommendations OP?

I think this stock will hit $20 USD sometime this year or next ...

iot security and all these cyber attacks are all good for bb. They always had top of the line security in their smartphones.

I'm waiting patiently for a minor dio. Going to buy NYSE bbry and would like to get in at 9.75. If it goes to 10.50 ill bite the bullet.

I won't say I know much abt BB, but right now, our current tech industry is moving everything towards IoT. IoT is basically everything being connected to ea other from one way to another ex: Your fridge is running low on milk and it will order them to be delivered to you just before it runs out. The room lights up before you even step into it and room temperature is adjusted accordingly to your body comfort and the list goes on... BB is the leader (or somewhere close) for IoT due to their strong background in encryption and security (QNX) and they make a lot of revenue for licensing their software

Well, I did okay. Nowhere near those who bought houses. I mean, I know someone who put down $50k, and bought the house for $500k. Sold it for $1.2m. That is 14 times in just 2-3 years.
I don't think I will ever beat that.

There is another stock that I am looking at. Or the sector at least.

You again? You only make an appearance whenever BBRY stock goes up? I tried to explain it to you in 2014 but it was useless, you didn't get it.

So are you saying I was wrong in 2014 when I said the Blackberry Smartphone was dead? How has the stock done since 2014 compared to the Nasdaq index?

It was an honest question because you don't see Blackberry anymore and really don't even hear about them and I work in IT. I'm genuinely confused what the growth is...I know security is a big area, but I wasn't sure if they were a major player or not in that area, so I was asking the question.
