  • Latvia set to join euro [View news story]
    With 60% of population against euro one must ask: how Soviet Union and Moscow are different from European Union and Brussels?

  • "At no point is it possible to bail-in depositors below €100K, now or in the future," Reuters reports an EU Commission statement as saying (never mind this is precisely what was attempted in Cyprus last week). It's not our job to evaluate Dijsselbloem's comments on Cyprus, the EU adds. "Dijsselbloem was wrong," says the ECB's Benoit Coeure. "Cyprus isn't a model." [View news story]
    Funny. Latvia (another offshore for Russians) was advised not to accept russian funds from Cyprus. (or ECB will block entering eurozone for LV)
    Freedom!

  • More on Cyprus: EU finance ministers approve deal. Bloomberg says deposits above €100K at Bank of Cyprus could incur losses up to 40% while deposits above the €100K threshold at Cyprus Popular Bank (Laiki) may be wiped out entirely. Deal may not need to be approved by the Cypriot parliament.

    With this deal banking sector is estimated to shrug somewhere up to 50%. That's shortterm +1.5% unemployent and -4% gdp. Longterm - even worse.
    Great improvement, considering there were some chances to save the banking sector before they decided to take away from wealthy russians.

  • Apple's Growth Story Is Over [View article]
    Too much emotion while investing in Apple...
    In the article about GROWTH, 70% of the comments are MSFT vs Apple, or Google vs Apple. Nobody is looking at the future numbers. iLemmings

    Agree. I live in Baltics and have a lot of work on Scandinavia and Germany.
    6 months ago out of 15 people in my department, 10 had iPhone4s. Only 1(!) upgraded to 5th, 6 bought Nokia, and others are still happy with 4s...

    I think EPS is not what we should look for Intel atm
    Revenue is way more important (shows how they can offset falling PC demand). Missing by 50M and -3% Y/Y is not that bad, but still...

  • Nokia Upgrades Will Create More Upside [View article]
    GS was shouting to sell, but as it turned out was buying...
    SNB (Swiss National Bank) while defending 1.2 in EUR/CHF became a large owner of Nok.

    A lot of large players do the things differently to what they say

    I don't think the absolute number of the top model is that important. What's more interesting is the total amount of smartphones and average price (and they are both up)

    Usually we don't compare how many 16gb iPhones were sold to 64gb versions? Nowdays it's more about ecosystem (WP, iOS or Android)

    Nokia is selling millions of "value", not-smart phones, which eats into margins, Apple (at least for now) has only hi-end segment phones
