  • Microsoft And IBM As Alternatives To Oracle [View article]
    I don't mean to pick on you, but the common practice of subtracting out cash from a balance sheet is usually a bad idea. You can't ask for the cash back after you buy shares, and the company controls this asset just like it does other assets.

    Similar weird practices include subtracting the value of real estate from a balance sheet or subtracting raw land.

    If the company has announced a special dividend to return cash to shareholders or has committed to spin-off assets, then these considerations are warranted.

    I apologize for the error - thank you for catching it!

    Your IPO concept makes NOK appear to be a very, very attractive sum of parts play!
