  • Nokia Sum-Of-Parts: Not Cheap Enough [View article]
    So called trends based on technical analyses are very risky. They only take into account historical data and dont take into consideration future developments. If Nokia confirms a new carrier or anounce a (pre-)order date tomorrow, the stock emmediatly goes up.

  • Nokia Sum-Of-Parts: Not Cheap Enough [View article]
    Omg... another short trader, who is wasting all his time, putting all his day efforts in writing the same bashing rubbisch about Nokia, just for fun. The more bashing articles and negative sentiment so called analyst want to create in order to manipulate stock movements, the more confidence I have Nokia is doing well. Arguments why Nokia is already succeeding in its turn around are plenty to find. Lets wait untill the new Lumia phones are in stores within approx 5 weeks from now.

  • Nokia May Sue HTC Over The Company's Windows 8 Phone [View article]
    According to Stephen Elop there is not going to be a patent war between HTC and Nokia.

    Just another bashing rumour by Wallstreet short traders, trying to sink Nokia's stock in order to buy cheap.

  • Are We Going To Have A War Between Nokia And HTC? [View article]
    Elements found in the 8X which are leaning towards copying are: 1. Bright-colour-only cases copied from Lumia 800/900. 2. Unibody polycarbonate copied from the Lumia 800/900. 3. Cruved screen copied from the Lumia 800. 4. Front view with curved edges like the Lumia 820.

    It is the combination of all 4 design elements of the Lumia's which could make a strong case for Nokia. Besides, there are many media/ articles/ comments, also suggesting HTC 8x is looking suspiciously similar to the Nokia Lumia's.

    However, I dont believe Nokia is interested in fighting a distant partner who is also supporting the WP8 platform.

  • Nokia (NOK +0.2%) will post a €0.25/share loss next year after losing €0.34/share this year, predicts BMO's Tim Long, who's downgrading shares to Underperform and valuing the company at just $2/share (purely on account of its cash and patents). Long predicts Nokia's Lumia phone sales will come in at a disappointing 20M in 2013, a figure that will fail to offset an expected 15% drop in industry feature phone sales. (prior downgrades[View news story]
    Why would analysts, who earn lots of money by (short)trading, share their true visions with the whole wide web?? Their only interest is to make many (private) investors act the exact opposite way they do. So, this downgrade to underperform actually means an upgrade to outperform. After years of following stock markets I still have yet to read an analyst forecast which actually turns out to be true.

  • Rare Apple Misstep Creates Opportunity For Nokia [View article]
    Your comment sounds like one of a short trader. Q3 not looking pretty is known since Q2, so this is no surprise anymore. Result most probably look better than expected. Don't forget Q3 is a quarter of Asha, Lumia 610, 800 sales in China and India. Furthermore NSN is ahead of reorganisation shedule and adds positively. There is no reason to doubt Lumia 820 and 920 will boost sales in Q4. They come with new WP8 and are fully compatible with the W8 system, which is introduced on many tablet and PC's and greatly attribute to the WP platform.

  • HTC announces the eponymous Windows Phone 8X and 8S. The phones feature relatively modest 4.3" and 4" displays, respectively, and are powered by Qualcomm (QCOM) Snapdragon processors. After handling the 8X, The Verge's Tom Warren thinks its design and weight allow it to hold own against Nokia's (NOK) Lumia 920, even if its camera is inferior. Nokia isn't amused by the announcement, and probably isn't happy with HTC's marketing deal with Microsoft either. (Stephen Elop[View news story]
    On paper and from a technical point of view the Lumia 820/920 are outperforming the S8/ X8. Looks are personal though. But I suggest you take a closer look at the way Nokia Lumia's and the way the HTC WP phones are. You'll find, also on this aspect the Lumia's are topping HTC.

    What is the warning here? That also HTC comits itself promoting WP, making the WP ecosystem more attractive for app developpers, etc..

  • Did Lumia 900 Enter The Indian Market Too Late? [View article]
    I am impressed with your ability in calling Elop names. The rest of your abilities are rather poor. So is ur analyses. Stephen Elop owns 425,000 Nokia shares. Why would he destroy Nokia.

  • Did Lumia 900 Enter The Indian Market Too Late? [View article]
    Though a bit late, it's better to introduce the Lumia 900 in India late then never. Not only because of inventory reasons, but also because the Lumia 900 simply is a great phone. Soon it gets the WP7.8 upgrade by which it adopts many new features of WP8. The only thing Nokia has to do right, is pricing. Which means Nokia should offer the Lumia 900 at a competetive price as compared to the GS3 and HTC one.

  • Nokia: A Cautious 'Buy' But Watch Out For Mispricing, Delays [View article]
    Imho Stephen Elop deserves some credit. He has a clear vision (he bought Nokia shares to state his believe in this vision), he is determined, he (and Nokia team) introduced new WP7 devices within 8 months and now, nearly 10 months later Nokia presents new WP8 devices with pureview and other technologies. Stephen Elop made Nokia more focussed on its core businesses. Nokia changed its identity to the "Where Company". People at Nokia are willing to fight for every customer. That being said, I also think Nokia made some mistakes under Elops leadership. But at least now, Nokia is not making the mistake to ignore those problems. Instead Nokia address these problems, act to solve them and adapt.

    PS. And as far as I understand, his internal "burning platform memo" did not refer to any operating system. Nokia was in trouble long before Stephen Elops arrival, though he was the one neccesary to spell it out for those within Nokia who were still in denial.

  • Can Nokia Turn Things Around? [View article]
    @Swiiv: Who says promoting is a problem? I have a problem with non-sense articles which try to make a point by looking back, referring to old historical data, referring to troubled stocks like RIMM and referring only to analysts who downgraded the stock. In order to make predictions about stock developments one should better take a look at new actions, new developments within the company and its vision on the future of its core business. Btw, proclaimers, claiming someone doesn't hold positions is of little value. Maybe the author is writing on behalf of parties who do have (short) positions.

  • Can Nokia Turn Things Around? [View article]
    Many authors on SA write to promote their own investing interests. This one is typical written to promote shorting Nokia. More and more articles appear expressing respect about Nokia's strategy, their products and their services, concluding Nokia is on their way to turn things around more quickly then anyone can imagine. I wonder what this means ;)

    You'd probably call a yellow Lamborgini also a kids toy. Btw, aren't we all kids in some way. :)
