  • Nokia: A Turnaround Through Creative Destruction [View article]
    @ DVL.
    Mentioning a few figures from the interim report does not add anything to the discussion. You are only out to create negative sentiment.
    Like I told you before. Shorting is considered to be unethical. It gives investing a bad name.

    Some other figures out of the Q3 report.
    Operating margin (non IFRS) = 1,08%
    Increasing EPS Q3 = EUR -0.07 (EPS Q4 = approx EUR -0.05)
    Operating profit NSN (non IFRS) = EUR 323 mil (Q4 = approx the same)
    Operating profit L&C (non IFRS) = EUR 37 mil (Q4 = better)
    Decreasing restructuring costs D&S Q4 = EUR 400 mil
    Upcoming release of W8, WP8 and new Lumia's.

    Best believe Nokia wil grow better day by day.
    Goodluck shorting.

  • Nokia To Issue Convertible Bonds - Does It Matter? [View article]
    @ Rookie IRA Investor: No, I dont think so. Platform support payments of Microsoft are for the support only. Exclusivity would be stupid and is most likely not part of the plan. Like Nokia said, there is room for a plan B.

    Although Nokia should invest quite heavily into developping Android phones. It would not make much sense investing into Android phones right now while restructuring costs are still high, and succes of WP8 is expected.

  • Happy 2nd Birthday Windows Phone 7: This Is Your Life [View article]
    No matter how great WP7.5 and Nokia's WP7.5 Lumia smartphones were. Microsoft and Nokia should have dealt better with the upgrade path from 7 till 8. This was a giant mistake. The non upgrade to WP8 was shouted out loud in every press, while the upgade path from WP7.5 to WP7.8 was only whispered, leaving the competition (and their shareholders) easy shots, again and again, to bash WP7.5 phones and lure them to their own products.

  • Nokia Lumia 920 Price: Champagne Taste And Beer Money [View article]
    Kofi Bofa:
    This is the same Nokia bashing article you wrote only three times before.
    Yes, by now it is clear. You love Apple. You even adopt their strategy, by bringing out the same stuf every new release.
    For the rest, I redirect you to the comments at your previous articles.

    Stop collecting clicks, it gives SA a bad name.

  • Nokia Management Discusses Q3 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Westkite, again, you are just telling fairy tales.
    All Nokia has to do is keep on proceeding with perfectly crafted phones, the best mapping services and the fastest networks. There is nothing Wallstreet can do to stop Nokia from rising and prevent consumers from buying.

  • Nokia Average Selling Price Will Improve On Windows 8; Expect Stock To Triple [View article]
    @Bill Herbert. Did you take a look at the news lately??

    "NOK being able to play catch-up with the big boys - Apple and Samsung/Google."

    If you think Nokia is a small boy, how do you consider Microsoft then?

    "Nokia is way, way behind in ALL of these areas, let's face it."

    I assume you did not read comparisons between Lumia 920 and the top toys of your big boys. How about Nokia Maps as compared to Apple maps? Does Samsung have an in house mapping devision?

    Btw, did you see pre-order stats around Europe? Lumia 920 tops i-P5 everywhere.
    Lets face it, Nokia together with Msft is gaining in on your big boys, whether you like it or not.

  • Lumia 920 Is Facing Solid Demand In Europe [View article]
    Great comment Caleb.
    You also might want to add:
    - expected reduction of Devices&Services operational costs of EUR 3 bil by the end of 2013
    - expected reduction of NSN operational costs of Eur 1 bil by the end of 2013.
    - a rapidly growing userbase because of the awareness of W8/ WP8 promoted by Microsoft and other pc-/ phonemakers (Asus, Samsung, HTC, etc.)
    - new pricefighting Lumia 510 to challenge Asian budget smartphones in China (ZTE, Huawei).

    Wallstreet manipulation trying to make private investors sell and take their loss. Nothing more. Look at the fundamentals and you will see Nokia is growing stronger Q on Q.

    Wim Lewi: Are you sure Devices & Services includes Navteq business? I thought Navteq was within Location & Commerce.

  • 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. :)

  • Good Times Ahead For Nokia Investors [View article]
    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.

    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. : )

  • Divided On Nokia [View article]
    - 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.

  • Divided On Nokia [View article]
    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.
