  • PC Weakness Fails To Crush Microsoft [View article]
    Wow! An article on Microsoft that doesn't focus on the negatives, on how it didn't meet the super-secret whisper numbers from analysts whose positions are based on where their income derives? Congratulations!

  • Nokia Corporation's CEO Discusses Q1 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    The bleeding stopped. The products are selling. The aggregate number of equipment sold is equal if not slightly higher than previous quarters, taking all lines into account. The new distribution contracts with China should provide larger number of products sold, albeit of lower margins, but in the end, it's about getting back to preferential status despite all the BS focusing on the negative. This quarter results present an auspicious beginning for a company battling to regain its former footing while always trying to overcome multiple detractors sabotaging everything along the way, paying for negative publicity, shorting the stock to instill fear and negativity both, in the market place and among consumers--basically, fighting dirty to retain the competition's products as favored and holding on to the former glory at ridiculously stratospheric market prices. And then we find the Samsung crowd enthralled in their own skull-duggery. This too shall pass. Be smart. Make up your own mind and buy cheap if you can afford to lose what you invest or stay away if you can't speculate. It's definitely a game of chicken today. Survival of the fittest in the end. Don't fight the trend if you can't afford it. The trend is your friend.

  • Nokia's First Quarter, From Bad To Worst [View article]
    An lopsided opinion, but one that misses the good points of the first quarter's report. It's all good despite the nit-picking on the negative. In the end, NOK will regain its historic position despite all the gang-style beating today. Rejoice. This too shall pass.

  • Nokia: There Is No Need To Panic [View article]
    I say the bears should sell and the bad bears should short. In the end, NOK investors want to accumulate more shares at lower prices since when all is said and done, NOK's position promises to be stronger later than now. Now's the time to buy or buy more, while bears and bad bears are ganging up to beat up the stock to a pulp. Bulls should buy stocks, buy Calls and speculators should sell Puts. Stock up on appreciating securities instead of succumbing to the manipulation from the dark pools used by the hedge funds and large banks whose only interest is to make a buck now to get that big bonus, even if their work today results in huge lost opportunities tomorrow. Go long Nokia if you can afford to lose and stay away if you cannot replace potential losses. It's sound financial management. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Personally, being long NOK, I dream of future short squeezes. Kah-ching!

  • Nokia: There Is No Need To Panic [View article]
    Today and any day we face these crazy sell-offs present excellent opportunities to back up the truck and buy more at bargain basement sale prices. With a frothy market and allegedly some like George Soros selling off gold to cash in profits, hedge funds delving into their dark pools steadily and rotating out of Apple, spooked investors become manipulated investors, which makes them run to throw out the baby with the bath water. Throw in the rumor that the Federal Reserve is shorting gold, everything will be on sale wreaking havoc for a while. Nokia is not going to be shielded from its detractors shorting the stock. The bright side of this situation continues to focus on the short-squeezes ahead. This too shall pass. Steady as she goes.

  • Microsoft: The Hottest Battleground Stock On The Board [View article]
    Dana, if I were you, I'd reconsider the validity of your present assessment, a somewhat sudden change of heart, for two reasons.

  • Short And Sweet: Microsoft Downgraded [View article]
    Your choice of words clearly compromise the neutrality of your perspective. Since this site ostensibly promotes the creation, growth, and preservation of wealth using different strategies, your reply to this article seems somewhat lacking. Clearly, you speak from a very personal perspective, not as a retail investor or from the perspective of the head of an institution with responsibilities to the public, with personnel working toward a common goal using technology as a tool or as someone in an IT department, addressing concerns of issues related to the security of customer privacy or to minimize industrial espionage and its nefarious repercussions. However, now the world knows how you feel, which must carry some weight with those around you who care to be apprised of your sentiments toward Microsoft.

    Your son's enterprise, if you've described correctly the situation, seems to favor the opposite position taken by the US Department of Defense, which a couple months ago adopted Microsoft for its more sensitive needs. There are always some who favor blue while others favor green. Opinions are like navels.

    On your cousin's experience, he must feel as upset over his mother's not using the Surface tablet he gave her as someone whose gift of a new Ford Focus to his mother remains locked up in the garage because the lady prefers to drive her 1955 Ford Fairlane since she's more familiar with it. All of life is change and fighting change is futile; those who fight it are generally frustrated.

    Since you'd know what to do, why don't you send the board your Resume, so they learn of your skills and your experience running a multi-national enterprise with office in every single country across the globe?

  • Goldman Sachs cuts Microsoft (MSFT -3.4% to $29.25) to "sell" from "neutral" and says there is an 11% downside to the software giant's $27 12-month price target. Goldman cites falling PC sales and not enough traction in tablets and smartphones as a reason for the downgrade, which comes a day after IDC said that global PC sales slumped 13.9% in Q1. [View news story]
    GS must've had their shorts in a knot over the last couple days. The plan must be now to spook the market ahead of the numbers to load up and recharge before they're handed their balls on a silver platter, as their shorts get squeezed some more.

  • Most U.S. consumers remain either unfamiliar with or unenthusiastic about Nokia (NOK) and BlackBerry's (BBRY) latest hardware, according to an MKM survey of 1,500 people. While 51% of respondents owned a smartphone, only 6% plan to buy a BlackBerry in the next 12 months, and just 1% a Nokia phone. Moreover, in spite of the Z10 and Lumia 920/820 launches, 63% of respondents had no idea when BB10 would launch in the U.S., and 61% were unaware WP8 (MSFT) phones are available. BlackBerry is counting on a fresh marketing push to raise its U.S. profile. [View news story]
    Another piece of misguided hype from the usual source. Perhaps we can refute this BS story with a link from this very same site:

  • Nokia Is Helping Windows Phone Gain Market Share [View article]
    As the market share of Nokia smartphones gradually edges toward the goal of 10% across global markets, the price of the stock should follow suit slowly but surely. The longer it takes everyone else to realize this, the more reason the rest of the investors in Nokia buying at every dip along the way will find to widen their smile. "To the moon, Alice!"

  • Microsoft: The Enterprise Strikes Back [View article]
    If you drove a Model T Ford, it too would fall short of your demands today. If you cooked with coal, you'd take longer than with gas. If you trimmed your lawn with a push lawnmower, it would take longer and you'd be exhausted after finishing.

    Everything in life is about moving forward. Technology is not any different. Vista is as old as the hills. Maybe your troubles are brought on by your reluctance to move forward with progress..

  • Numbers Or No Numbers, Nokia Is A Buy [View article]

    Some haven't tried W8 yet because they're so happy with Windows 7, anything short of their present blissful state will disappoint.

    Some of us have a stop loss at zero and as the hedge funds, Apple, and Samsung play games, we buy at every dip. At some point, the shorts will have to buy back. When that happens, we'll have us a Kah-ching! day.
