  • Nokia confirms 'advanced' merger discussions with Alcatel-Lucent [View news story]
    Why? It's not actually costing them anything, they're just giving ALU shareholders new ones, with "Nokia" on them.

    It depends on how long you want to hold on. Me, I'd take the profit and place my money elsewhere, and maybe buy in later when the SP gets over its current lethargy.

    All banks will, and BAC has plenty of cash to lend out.

    Really? They haven't been making you anything while hovering around the current price!

  • Nokia to buy Alcatel-Lucent for $16.6B [View news story]
    It is strange, P, and I'd have expected ALU shares to either be frozen with respect to Nokia's, or else withdrawn altogether.

    Maybe, but also trepidatious about how the management overlap will be dealt with (though it's probably already negotiated...).

    Because joint development seems like a good idea to management types, who are also slow to admit it when they are wrong (even when it's staring them in the face and costing lots of money).

    Why "a lot of planning"? Other than maybe some management reshuffling, all they need to do is carry on as usual; that the strategy will now be determined by Nokia's executives, isn't likely to change its nature much.

    What cash, gt? Unless brown envelopes are involved, all they are doing is issuing fresh shares.

    Maybe it's this "good will" thing?

    Won't ALU shares be withdrawn?

    Not really; basically all that's changed is that ALU holders will have their existing shares replaced by others with "Nokia" written on them. There may be changes in higher management, but that's not clear yet, and it may be the old boss(es) of ALU just keep on doing what they are doing on a day to day basis, while handing over long term planning to the boss(es) at Nokia (who may or may not be interested in their opinions, on this).

    That was my first thought, too! So many SA contributors were so sure this wouldn't happen...

  • Bank Of America Has 35-40% Upside, Reports Next Week [View article]
    Isn't "trusted CEO" an oxymoron? The only thing I trust Jamie Dimon to do is to do what's best for Jamie Dimon, and what are we to make of "I'll turn it around; this is what great business leaders do" Meg Whitman (that's worked out really well, eh?)? These people live in such rarified atmospheres, that even when they mean well, it's unlikely to translate as such, by the time it affects ordinary folk; this recent practice of judging CEOs by how confidently they present and respond at conference calls, is sheer foolishness, as it can be no better than a carefully (or not so) rehearsed propaganda session!
