Q: Hi,

The last time you were asked for your thoughts about BB was a few months ago when it was trading for a shade over $12, and you rated it as one of your least attractive.

Have your thoughts changed after it has shed further 30% of its price?

I sold a small holding at ~$27.00 in Jan21 (after getting in at ~$13 in '18) during its meme-stock craze. I think it's susceptible to another such a run-up, given its legitimately-sexy reputation/past performance.

Question: Does BB's current price justify re-initiating a I-don't-care-if-it-goes-to-zero position of 3% of my otherwise-conservative portfolio (50% defensive, 30% cash, 20% fixed income)?

Thanks, and please keep up the good work.

Q: I owned Blackberry shares earlier in the year, but ended up selling in June after the stock had reached $20 per share. I had previously purchased around $10 per share earlier in the year. The share price as been in a downward fall since the meme spikes. I was considering opening another position if the stock slides below $10 again. Do you see that as a good entry point? Would you say that Blackberry still has longer term potential?

Q: Hi 5i,

Thanks for your fast response. Now I understand BB become one of the MEME stocks, so it will expect short-squeeze due to the short-lived. In your opinion, do you think it can drive away market manipulators? Do you think it is healthy? If I were those "big predators", I will never touch BB in the further. In this situation who will win?

Q: What do you make of another short squeeze on blackberry. Why is this company involved in a Reddit squeeze? Is it not a company that was on the verge of bankruptcy like GameStop and Amc.
Only 9 percent is shorted. Where do you see this playing out in the next week? I own BB on its own merit but the short squeeze has me wondering whether I should take the money and run.

Q: Hello. I am a new subscriber and this is my first question. I have been "practicing" self directed investing for the past year with about 20% of my registered assets. I think I have a pretty good grip on the basics and am now ready to move ahead and invest the balance of my assets into the market. I am going to use your portfolio construction recommendations as a guideline. According to the plan, I am already heavy in # of stocks and lack solid allocation and diversification. The stocks I listed are the ones that are dragging down the portfolio and for the most part do not belong in the mix. If I sell now all the losses seem to be quite significant representing approx. 3.5% of my current portfolio of stocks and about 1.3% of my total available assets. I have the option of holding on hoping for recovery and using other cash to strengthen my good positions and add to more diversified positions. Or should I simply sell and move on with a clean slate to re-build the portfolio?

Q: Dear 5i
Is the projected earnings growth for these three stocks high enough to be worth investing in ? CTS hasn`t done much in the past year but looks encouraging for 2021 . Qcom seems to have momentum and is likely a good 5G play . BB has developed some business relationships with other companies that should drive growth . Would you invest in any of these at this time ?
