  • How Stephen Elop Destroyed Nokia [View article]
    Elop sold all of it MSFT shares. Elop owns 450.000 Nokia shares. Why would Elop try to sink Nokia?

  • How Stephen Elop Destroyed Nokia [View article]
    @ alphaRAJU. Poor sales are the result of poor marketing, poor strategy, biased (Wallstreet) press and the Osbourne effect (Microsoft announcing WP8 few months after Lumia 900 was introduced).

    Read some (customers) reviews on the Lumia phones. All reviews of customers are raving or enthousistic. Everybody I know is very impressed with my Lumia 800. Though, many were postponing to buy one, waiting for WP8 to come out.

  • How Stephen Elop Destroyed Nokia [View article]
    I suggest to neglect reading Nokia bashing articles, with spectacular bashing titles.

    Those articles serve only three goals.

    1. To create downward sentiment on the stock in favor of big short traders (Goldman Sachs, City Bank, Credit Suise, etc). This is also done by many so called investor sites, like Wallstreet journal.
    2. To measure insecurity among private investors and to determine support levels,
    3. Easy money for the author, who is getting paid for every click on their article and most probably also by short trading hedge funds.

    Remember. Short traders earn lots of money on volatile sensitive stocks like Nokia, mostly on behalf of private investors who are taking their loss out of fear.

  • The Lumia 920 Will Not Save Nokia [View article]
    The author is long AAPL and is trying hard to bash Nokia with anything he can throw at it. Nothing new here.

    Also not new is comScore research, showing a slight decrease of WP7 sales in the US. This is according to expectations since Microsoft's announcement of the upcoming WP8. However, sales of WP outside of the US most probably will exceed expectations.

    I understand the feelings of AAPL longs. After all, the Lumia 920 outperforms the iP5 on almost every aspect. But I doubt if it is a good thing to let them post lousy bashing articles on SA and waste time of many SA subscribers.

  • Nokia's David Will Have To Battle Against More Than One Goliath [View article]
    MC, you are totaly wrong.
    Nokia most probably already stops losing cash this year.

    NSN is ahead of shedule on restructuring. It is expected they wont post a loss this quarter.
    Location & Commerce is making great deals with great partners. They wont post a loss this quarter.
    Devices & Services are probably going to exceed estiomation on both Lumia as Asha sales.
    Upcoming is a MSFT W8 launch event. This will cause some serious traction and attention for WP8 and its apps.
    Then of course, the Lumia 920 is considered by many to be the best WP8 phone coming out this year.

    There you have it! All igredients for a succesfull turn around and black figures which I expect for Q4 already.

    In the most unlikely case, where every ambition fails, the annual meeting might start considering which assets (patents, buidlings, factories, maps, NSN) they would like to sell. All together these assets represent a value far greater than the value of all shares together.

    Good luck going short on Nokia.

    There are still a lot short traders hoping (and now screaming out loud), Lumia 920 will not succeed, Nokia is bleeding cash, Nokia will fall, etc. I understand. I would also worry when I had a lot shorting on Nokia.

  • Nokia's Lumia 920 AT&T Exclusivity Is A Huge Mistake [View article]
    According to the AT&T announcement, their Lumia 920 exclusivity will only be during the holiday season.
    There could be many reasons (like prodution capacities, general agreements with AT&T, no pushing by Verizon ) for Nokia and AT&T to do so. The smartphone market though, is bigger than just the USA.

    PS. If you want to buy a new Lumia phone, you could decide to wait until January next year instead of buying a ... GS3??. If you are in desperate need, you could even get yourself a Lumia 820 this holiday season, which is not exclusive to AT&T.

    @ Solucky: Nokia could increase their fees on Nokia maps in order to compensate the fees of MSFT.

  • Ilari Nurmi, Nokia's (NOK) VP of product marketing and the exec responsible for its smartphone strategy, has left the company for unknown reasons. Nurmi's departure comes as speculation grows CEO Stephen Elop will get axed next year if Nokia's Windows Phone 8 sales disappoint, and 3 months after chairman Risto Siilasmaa talked about having a "contingency plan" (believed by many to be Android) should WP8 fail to meet expectations. [View news story]
    I did not know you consider Elop being hot ;)
    PS. Ever thought about a confidentiality clause?

    The Lumia 920 was not even introduced when this teaser came out. So how should they make a disclaimer, saying the video was not shot with the Lumia 920? Especially when the video did not show or mention anything about the Lumia 920. The teaser just introduced a new ois technology to be implemented in new future Nokia phones.

    All this hypocrit whining about Nokia's "fake commercial" is simply coming from the competition, their shareholders or Nokia shorters.

    Nokia was only too polite to excuse themselves for the confusion they apparently created... among all those poor naive people who also thought they got wings by drinking RedBull.

    Again, I can't read any reasoning in your comment. I only see you are trying hard to create some negative sentiment about Nokia and Elop. Please mention facts. If you try to do so, you will see there are many reasons to believe Nokia will only growing stronger day by day.

    Relax. The you are referring to is famous because of its Nokia bashing. The Osbourne effect of Microsoft not upgrading WP7.5 to WP8 was expected to give a decline in Lumia sales. If this turns out to be only -9% (according to the Kantar measurements) then Q3 results are not as bad as expected. Especially because Kantar did only measure in developped countries and left the developping countries out of its research.

    So, this is not bad news at all.

    So, you are saying Nokia is a fool to sell & lease back in order to free up cash and focus on its core businesses?? Again, you are making no sense with your examples.
