  • Weighing Nokia As A Long-Term Investment  [View article]
    I believe that without something [critical] that Alcatel-Lucent has, and Nokia has not, Nokia would not do what its ambitions are driving it to do.

  • Nokia: The Rising Value Of A Map  [View article]
    One things is sure: selling HERE to German automakers takes Nokia away from the fierce competition situation that Nokia has had with Google. Likewise selling away handset division Nokia got away from the desperate battles in smartphone market, where Apple seems to be the only winner in the final analysis. Nokia is now free to concentrate in its ambitious programmable world vision.

  • Nokia: Can The Phoenix Rise Again?  [View article]
    Fluctuation in share price is inevitable and an investor just has to learn to live with uncertainty. Anyway Q2/2015 results will be available on July 30, and be they whatever, I have decided to keep certain amount of NOK shares for reasons.

  • Greece Says No: An Investors Guide  [View article]
    I agree. Example: as a tourist I was not allowed to pay my accommodation by credit card but by cash only. No taxes and no impact on income in GNP, but more for Greece to get funds from European union. Greece gets more subsidies from European union that its should get. Funds are taken from other member states, mainly from Germany. Stop this. Raise moral in European Union. Rules are meant to be followed, not to be words only.

  • Greece Says No: An Investors Guide  [View article]
    Yes, creditors have to accept the facts, and put an end to the farce. Greece has got money and time enough to put key things in order, but Greece has shown no respect to forbearance of those that have been backing it.

  • Greece Says No: An Investors Guide  [View article]
    Greece should leave both EU and euro, and live on its own. Situation in Greece affects wealth of those who have invested and given loans to Greece and its enterprises, and the wealth of those whom Greece is an important importer or exporter. For most companies Greece is an insignificant economy in the world's scale. EU would be much stronger without Greece.

  • 3 Plays On Tap After Shares Of Nokia And Alcatel-Lucent Fall  [View article]
    I guess Alcaltel-Lucent's figures are within tolerance, and information about strong growth coming from next-generation products is encouraging. Next: accelerated evolution in favor of talents?

  • Why Nokia Stock Is Heading To $8 Despite Underperforming Network Business  [View article]
    Among share owners it is uncertainty that affects NOK share price more than the messages sent by Suri Rajeev and Risto Siilasmaa. Nokia's performance is not bad on the markets, where Chinese companies are aggressively trying to win more share. Doubts have been reported that China is supporting Huawei and ZTE. If so, no western networks company is safe: not Alcatel-Lucent, not Ericsson, not even Nokia. There is a need for "a big champion that could compete with Huawei and Chinese champions" (http://on.wsj.com/1AAjsna). The champion is made combining the best of Nokia with the best of Alcatel-Lucent. Engineers understand that if something works fine, there is no need to fix it.

    As regards merger with Alcatel-Lucent more risk than the opportunities have been emphasized by analysts, contrary to what Nokia's top management and board have emphasized. Nokia invests in the future (5G). This is evident judging from Nokia network's research and development expenses. On Q1/15 they were 504 million euross while on Q1/14 they were 433 million euros. With the same R&D expenses as in Q1/14 Nokia networks operating profit would have been 136 million euros in stead of 65 million euros. Markets would have been more happy than they were, but it is not how a champion is made.

  • Here's Why Nokia Is Buying Alcatel-Lucent  [View article]
    Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) have talked about merger since 2012. In 2013 ALU told that it cuts 10,000 jobs and sells several assets over the next 2 years in order to shift focus to high-speed broadband and Internet products and reduce investments in older technology. This is fully in line with Nokia's interests. Thus, ALU has been prepared for a merger for years, although through a different concept [joint venture] that Nokia used when preparing a merger between Nokia networks and Siemens Networks. Nokia has more ambitious aims than just growing through old customers of merged companies. Nokia aims to change our life, and there is now 'extraordinary innovation capability' (http://nokia.ly/1ave1i2) for that.

  • Nokia And Alcatel-Lucent: What Will The Future Hold?  [View article]
    In the world where everybody and everything is connected the pioneers who set standards and create tools, have influence on lives of billions of people. Life can change fundamentally, when people can easily and without delay learn every piece of public information that they want to know. I have an feeling that Nokia knows exactly what it is doing, and it has made great advance in solutions of the big puzzle. It is not only networks, it is all as regards communicating, and what is needed to make communication possible.

  • Rising Competition Could Lower Nokia's Valuation By Up To 10%  [View article]
    I understand that Nokia's phone business is for making money with the patents and IP. The latest patents can give indications about the business where the most promising prospects are (programmable world devices and software): http://bit.ly/1F0xS3w

  • Rising Competition Could Lower Nokia's Valuation By Up To 10%  [View article]
    The article is strongly past oriented. Examining Nokia as three separate parts make no justice to what Nokia is today - with a focus in programmable world. I believe that Nokia has been winning big deals because of the contents of its offers, because of leading-edge technology and solutions bringing substantial added value, not because of low price. How could Nokia otherwise do well on the markets of China and US. I am expecting strong financial performance from Nokia this year.

  • Update: Nokia - Mixed Quarter But No Reason To Worry  [View article]
    If Suri calls 2015 as "the year of implementation", the year(s) before were likely year(s) of visioning, and restructuring. So Q4/2014 figures can be indicative.
