BlackBerry's Price Drop May Cause Fairfax to Lower Buyout Bid

As most of you already know, Blackberry is in talks of being bought out.  Fairfax Financial Holdings, as BB's largest shareholder has made a $9 per share bid a little while ago and has until the beginning of next month to come up with the funds to make it happen.  Meanwhile, BlackBerry is free to seek out better buyers that may offer a better deal.  However, currently Blackberry is sitting at $7.93 a share, quite a bit lower than the price offered. This seems to be a result of the company's less than stellar earnings report. Because of that, Fairfax is rethinking its investment strategies and may possibly bring the buyout bid down to $7 or less.  However, this is all just speculation.  What do you guys think?
