  • Update: Nokia's Impressive Earnings Support Our Bull Case [View article]

    I think a lot has happened since Nokia sold its D&S to MSFT, besides the dividend. Even the chart (3 or 5 year chart) is quite revealing: Nokia is now on an continuous uptrend. If you only look at a one year chart, depending on which one year you are looking at, it can be quite misleading. Nokia basically took a one-year consolidation and this is the reason many think Nokia stock did not do much during the past year (some call it dead money). I do not have a crystal ball to see through what is going to happen in the next 3 or 6 months. If I had, I would have already become super rich now by just trading in and out. But, over a longer time period, we will see the picture more clearly. One of my significant holding is ACAS, which I bought near the bottom at $0.60 in 2009. During the past 5+ years, there had been quite a few time periods during which I was frustrated that the stock looked like dead money. A few times, I had larger losses on paper. But, if I look back now at the 10-year chart, I see a better picture for the past 5 years. I feel gratified with my Nokia investment for the past 2+ years. With Nokia, patience will be rewarded, I deeply believe. Not because I have fallen in love with Nokia. Take all the emotion out, the most recent quarterly report from Nokia has further solidified my belief.

    From Nokia's report, diluted share count is 4,018,692,000. With a profit of US$0.96B, EPS is US$0.24, not US$0.19, as stated in this article. It is Euro 0.19. I am very long NOK, anyway.

    Why was there no disclosure about the Belkin settlement? September 26, 2014, has passed.

  • Nokia's Continuing Execution Will Lead To Large PPS Gains In The Short, Medium, And Long Term [View article]
    I have been bullish about NOK since I made my first purchase at $1.69 and I remain bullish. However, I am not sure how you got your 7% Nokia Networks Q3 revenue growth from 2013 Q3. If Nokia can achieve this, it is great. But, it is not likely to get this much growth. Your operating margin projection is achievable. I certainly will be very happy if your project of networks revenue growth turns out to be correct.

  • Vringo, Inc. Reaches Settlement With Belkin International [View article]
    I wish that the settlement against ADT, Tyco, and Belkin signals a strategy shift within VRNG. That is, in addition to the giants, like GOOG and ZTE type, VRNG also goes after the smaller ones. Imagine that VRNG pursued these smaller ones much earlier? I am writing this because I see the success so far achieved by MARA.

  • Vringo, Inc. Reaches Settlement With Belkin International [View article]
    In 2012, Belkin had a revenue of slightly less than $500M. So, it is not that big. Anyway, just like the settlement reached with ADT/Tyco, the one with Belkin may also be confidential. I wonder how is the case against ZTE developing. We have not heard much lately.

  • Doing The Math Again On Apple Pay [View article]
    For every 1% of that $4T market Apple Pay grabs, Apple collect $60M, not that $600M you have calculated, if Apple Pay makes $0.15 for every $100 of transaction.

  • Amazingly, Yahoo Will Still Do Badly [View article]
    I do not agree with some people, including the author of this SA article, who thinks that all things need to be re-designed to take up a high bandwidth. In the case of Flickr, that is exactly one of the complains I have. With its current design, it requires more bandwidth. Even with my laptop running on an intel i7 processor, with wired ethernet cable connection at my workplace, I often need to wait for the pages to refresh. Imagine, if I am using my smartphone?

    Forums with text is fine, as long as they work properly as they should. Yahoo Finance message board has had a lot of problems, even last night I saw error messages, and it has been like that for a long time.

  • Amazingly, Yahoo Will Still Do Badly [View article]
    I bought some YHOO shares some time ago as a BABA play. I believe I need to sell my YHOO shares soon after BABA IPO and use the fund to purchase BABA shares directly at some point of time but have not yet decided on exactly at what time. However, I do not think it is a good idea to short YHOO after BABA IPO. BABA may continue to rise after the IPO. Yahoo still holds a good chunk of BABA. As such, I do not see potential for large gain in shorting YHOO. Certainly, if you are an agile short-term trader, you may try shorting YHOO at some point for a quick profit. I do not make short-term trades/investments.

    Yahoo has been a beloved company of mine. I and my family have been loyal users of the services provided by Yahoo. I was among a small group of people who opened their Yahoo Mail accounts at the very beginning when this service became available. In fact, I opened Yahoo Mail accounts for all my family members using exactly their full names as their Yahoo ID’s. I continue to use Yahoo Mail as my primary email. However, I agree that Yahoo’s operating division has been a great disappoint for years. Yahoo Finance and some other sites have so many problems, and I do not understand why their engineers are not aware or fixing these problems. Even for the Flickr photo sharing site that Yahoo bought some time ago, there are serious problems with its changes made in recent years. As a result, I have been visiting the Flickr site a lot less than I did three years ago.

    Let's do not lose sight of the big picture, just because there are some meaningless fluctuations. NOK is at 52-week high.

  • Why I Will Start Social Security At Age 62 [View article]
    To the Author:

    Based on your second table, if I start to take benefit at 70, instead of 62, I will have to live through my 83 in order to match the total benefit cumulated from 62. I will not hesitate. I will start to take benefit at 62. Although I believe I have a great chance of living through 83, to close to 90, if I invest conservatively the benefit I start to receive at 62, my net will always be larger than the total benefit I would receive if I started to take at 70 years of age.
