Report: Nokia to name NSN boss as CEO

Nokia (NOK) will reportedly name its Indian-born networks boss, Rajeev Suri, as its next CEO on Tuesday and outline what its strategy will be following the sale of its handset business to Microsoft, which could close today.

Suri has been considered the leading candidate to become Nokia's CEO after bringing profitability to Nokia Solutions & Networks (NSN) with a major overhaul.

Nokia could also announce on Tuesday how much it plans to pay out to shareholders with the cash that it's receiving from Microsoft.

    I'd be satisfied with a smaller dividend, for them to take the cash and reinvest it for added growth. Didn't the price of the stock go down after the last earnings report, on account of lower revenue, even though earnings beat expectations?

    If it's any consolation, volume has been really low the last 3 days. I mean price down on low volume, that's a positive.


    We'll know what direction SP is headed on Wednesday.


    4 more days.
