High risk high reward. I loved bb back in the days and even think about purchasing the q10, however I would stay away form by stocks.

People say young investor should take on higher risk, I somewhat disagree. I am 29 so I consider myself young in the investing world. I think if we just keep playing it safe, since we got time on our side we don't need to take on too much risk. Also I don't plan on becoming mega rich only from the stock market.

I think you can buy some bb but don't commit everything in it. You don't want your portfolio to burn because of one stock.

I think that the term "risk" is much misunderstood.

Here's a couple articles:

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/risk.asp
http://personalwm.com/2010/05/07/defining-investment-risk/

from the second article:

quote:
investment risk is simply the probability that the actual return on an investment will be different than the expected return.


note that the "difference" *direction* is not part of the definition; the difference could be either more than expected or it could be less than expected.

Well buying BBRY stocks can make sense if you can hold it for long term and wait till prices goes up, only then you can expect to get good outcomes from it.

Good Luck........
