  • Does Nokia Continue To Disappoint In A Highly Competitive Industry? [View article]
    Funny. By reading the first sentence I stopped and saved myself some time. I read the comments though, which confirmed my first assumption. The article is utter non-sense. :)

    @DVL
    You dont tell anything.
    The only thing you do is bashing Nokia by looking back and referring to its decline of the past three years.

    Investing however, is looking forward.
    Nokia has many great tricks up in their sleeves.
    They are playing those tricks right now.
    Tommorow you will see the share price respond to that.

  • Steve Elop Is Killing Nokia? I Don't Think So [View article]
    I agree with your article, and I think until now Elop did a pretty good job.
    That is if we speak about the same Elop. Because I know being in charge of Nokia at this moment, is Stephen Elop, not Steve Elop. ; )

    However, Stephen and his team also made some silly mistakes.
    At least this is how we got them via various press.
    1. The biggest mistake, was communicating phasing out Symbian early 2011, while it was still their major source of revenue. The first Lumia 800 was only to be introduced late 2011.
    2. Tactless communication about WP7.5 lumia phones not receiving a WP8 upgrade. The perfect way to cause a decline in Lumia sales. This decline could have simply been avoided, by communicating that WP7.5 phones would get an almost identical upgrade with WP7.8.


    Although he and/ or Nokia's other board members, made some stupid mistakes.
    Stephen Elop was up to a very difficult task.

  • Divided On Nokia [View article]
    4 mill in Q1/13... while Q4/12 already forecasts 6 mill ??
    Better expect 7 mill Lumia's in Q1/13 instead of 4 mill. : )

    - Yes sure. Nokia was so stupid they forget to seal the rights on WP when they committed themselves to WP.
    - Did you ever thought about mutual interest of both companies working together. Dont forget WP and Bing are using Nokia maps.
    - With a partner like Nokia MSFT never needs to worry about developping WP phones to beat competition.

    Btw, the topic here is about the new WP8 phones which Nokia is bringing to the US on other carriers than AT&T.

    Sure, it would have been better if the 920 was not an exclusive on AT&T (I did not read the 820 was exclusive on AT&T). But if AT&T for some reason has exclusivity during holiday season, then I think Nokia makes the best out of a not ideal situation.

    I also think the 810 has a decent well thought design. Where the 820 is more organic and playfull (rounded), the 810 has a more of a classic business kind of look (sharp edges). But both phones clearly belong to the colourful 800 series with changable back covers.

    As far as the Atlas concerned, it depends on what number it gets. If it gets the number 822 I agree with Paulo Santos. Imo the Atlas dont have much in common with the 800 series. Though it will be ok if it gets the 620 or 720.

    @DVL:
    Microsoft is not going to make its own mobile phones. They are happy with Nokia (official statement).
    Nokia is not burning cash. They are restructuring the company and investing in great R&D.
    The reasons for head of marketing Ilari Nurmi to leave the company are unknown. Though it is obvious to think his strategy was criticised within the company.

    Again you are just trying to create negative sentiment.

    In many countries in Europe shorttrading is considered unethical. Shorting has nothing to do with investing. It has everything to do with manipulation and speculation. Many so called "investors sites" serve the interest of Wallstreet shorters by spreading biased information or simply false rumours. It gives investing a bad name.

    Don't be so proud on yourself.

    You never predicted anything. You are just bashing NOK after the stock went down. When the stock goes up you are quiet.

    Like I said before, if you dont believe in Nokia, walk away and focus on shares you believe in. The fact that you are so much occupied with screaming NOK is going to fall, simply makes you ...

    Nokia was trading well below its average daily volume. So don't be alarmed. Big traders are manipulating stock by selling little by little in order to sink Nokia's stock. When the price sunk enough, they caused private investors to be nervous enough to sell with loss and walk away. Big day traders then buy back more then they sold the day before.

    If you believe in a turnaround, then buy today and don't look back.
    Just look back at your portofolio after two years.
    I believe you will be rewarded greatly.

    @ css1971, I dont think Q3 will be nasty.
    1. Expectations are extremely low since Nokia's guidance for Q3 (same or more loss as Q2).
    2. NSN is ahead of restructuring shedule,
    3. Location & Commerce is making major deals,
    4. Devices & Services is going to surpirse with Asha and Lumia sales in developping countries.

    So chances are very big that Nokia will beat expectations.

    DVL, I am impressed by the way you are bashing Nokia on every article about Nokia SA. The only thing you are referring to is Nokia's decline of recent four years, Nokia's share price on days when it went down and you blame it on Elop.

    It is so obvious you are shorting Nokia.

    I dont agree. Why wait until the big instos decide to dump their Apple shares and all start buying Nokia before you even got out of bed, realizing the stock went up 100%. Besides their bonuses are dependent on making profit, not on holding on to any other stock until years end.

    If you believe in the companies turn around you should simply buy today, now the stock is way below any value.

    Elop sold all of it MSFT shares. Elop owns 450.000 Nokia shares. Why would Elop try to sink Nokia?

    @ 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.
