A downgrade to Underweight from HSBC leads Alcatel-Lucent (ALU -5%) to close with decent losses. The downgrade comes on a day when ALU and China Mobile (CHL) jointly announced a new lightRadio small cell base station CHL plans to use within its TD-LTE 4G network. ALU is already a major supplier for CHL's multi-city 4G trial network.

  • I have given up on understanding ALU's price action of late. Anyone has any clues or links to recent articles as to the mess? Thanks!

  • all of those analysts work together for the purpose of taking the small investor money away
    they do that by creating fear and promoting desire to gain
    one analyst gives a bad note, another gives a positive note
    that is how they create the market and control the price movement
    ALU management has helped a great deal in creating this situation
    now, with the new management we will see if they will be the same as the one that took the door

  • ALU keeps declining on good news. It has to be a takeover target.

  • Yes, one LTE deal in Asia after the other; light radio deployments pick up; core router will do well. On the other hand, French finance cronies, unions and the socialist government. Someone may indeed push retail investors down and out, only to snap up ALU for small change.
