  • Maybe it will be the U.K., not Greece exiting the EU. In a move dubbed "the gamble," David Cameron will offer citizens a referendum on the U.K.'s EU membership if his government is reelected in 2015. Designed to get better terms from Berlin and Paris, the policy might just have the effect of prompting other governments to do the same. European officials probably don't want citizens voting on this sort of thing. [View news story]
    And why would we be happy, all the headway we made as a nation was thrown out the window by incompetent politicians and regulators.

    The introduction of the euro brought us inflation with sky high house prices and politicians telling people if they didnt buy now they would never be able to buy, consequently people bought and are now suffering the consequences.
    We are a proud nation but are now left in a position where politicians cannot be trusted and our so called partners in Europe have stuck the boot in at every opportunity, I am sure the Portugese, Greeks and Spanish would echo those thoughts.

    Yes but where did you say N Ireland?
    You said Ireland which is the republic and is not part of the UK.
    You hardly need to explain to an Irish poster as I am about Ireland, N Ireland and the UK but carry on if it makes you happy.
    I would advise you not to believe the propaganda you read about ordinary citizens being happy about what has happened in Ireland since the introduction of the Euro.

    Ireland is not part of the UK, ask people in Ireland what the Euro has given them and most will say inflation and bank debts that had nothing to do with them, thats the sad reality.

    If you believe polls conducted in Europe then you are naive, the European project is being forced through by elites with Countries that vote against in referendums being made to hold second referendum and threatened with financial armageddon if they do not vote the correct way, sooner or later one of these Countries are going to cry enough and the house of cards will come tumbling down.
    The people never wanted this type of integration and for most it has only brought higher inflation and higher unemployment.

  • Nokia (NOK -2.7%) ticks lower following a downgrade to Underweight from Barclays' Jeff Kvaal: he argues "neither Lumia nor Windows Phone has reached critical mass," and claims "CES checks showed few signs WP8’s promise is converting to sustained demand." Moreover, Kvaal believes Nokia, which expects to report 4.4M Lumia sales for a supply-constrained Q4, will need to sell 10M-12M Lumias/quarter for its Smart Devices ops to break even, assuming a €225 ASP, 20% gross margin, and €2B in opex. (April downgrade[View news story]
    Lets wait a little while and we may be able to get more at lower prices with this downgrade, dont allow analysts to color your vision of where a company is going when you are long.
    Nokia to me a long term investment which will have a lot of ups and downs along the way, let the day traders worry about short term movements while the longs can profit from an upward trend over time.

    Read his comment. Bottleneck will continue in Q1.

    Nokia had supply constraints with the Lumia 920 in the fourth quarter, especially with AT&T Inc. in the U.S., and operators in Italy and Germany, Elop said on a conference call, adding that the bottleneck will persist during the first quarter.

    Any updates on ALQA?
    The new faces would seem to suggest the company is about to do something, its a little puzzling why these guys would join and invest in such a small company.

    Al you ask is possible Tawse, personally I dont think that any of that happened but its possible, it still does not take away from the improvement in Nokias fortunes in recent quarters relative to where we expected them to be.

    No Sal, what I am saying is that if they were desperate enough for money to do what you are suggesting in your article then I would suggest it would be far more likely that they would cut/abolish the dividend and not put their reputation on the line by engaging in dubious practices.
    Most investors expected the dividend to be cut or abolished when the costs of restructuring were known, if they pay them it is an unexpected bonus.
