  • Tablets: Great Catalyst For Nokia's Stock, But Success Lies On The Consumer End [View article]
    It is time to bullish about Nokia and Microsoft.

    A Nokia tablet would be very beneficial for Nokia and Microsoft, many surveys conclude that up to 25% of CIO is exploring a tablet strategy.

    Here is also some great news from forrester this is sure a market for Nokia and Microsoft to enter.

    Though, Nokia has some bad reputation amongst 35-64 years old, and that is surely where the marketing could be focused.

  • Sell Nokia, Take Profits. [View article]
    Nokia has kept Graphene quiet for six years, and most likely a key component to their high research costs.

    It is very interesting to see what Nokia can apply Graphene to, what products will come out of it.

    I saw this article, and if Nokia can turn the negative sentiment and use Graphene to capture a more positive sentiment, then surely, Nokia could gain a very long term technical edge over its rivals.

    @idx, I really like what you wrote and I agree that Nokia will increase production of Lumia and Asha devices.

    @DVL, you must admit that the growth lies in Nokia and its ability to produce?

    @DVL, do you agree that Apple has peaked?
    @DVL, do you agree that at some time, people get tired of Samsung and wants to retry an old brand like Nokia?

    The most interesting thing about Kofi, is, that he is not holding any Apple shares. Long Nokia investor warned Kofi about it, be he ignored it and slammed Nokia for something not true.

    I guess the real growth is in Nokia and Lumia and in some years time 40$ stock :-)

  • Nokia: The Turnaround Story Continues [View article]
    Hey KevinRemde :-)

    The license that Microsoft has to pay to Nokia, is the use of hardware licenses to produce phones. Apple, RIMM and many more companies have pay´ed Nokia for using Nokia technology, Microsoft is no different.

    Still I believe the odds are in Microsoft's favor, but compared to the industry, Nokia could pay less when you compare IPR expense Phone technology vs. OS.

  • Nokia: The Turnaround Story Continues [View article]
    Thanks a good article.

    I have 3 small things to add to the bullish train.

    1. Should Microsoft release there own smartphone, it would be good for Nokia since Nokia will earn license fees and thereby reduce Nokia license payments to Microsoft.
    2. QCOM and Nokia´s long term fight over 3g networks have been resolved, it is back to business again.
    3. The low volume of 4,4 million lumia is beeing handle.

    Q1-2013 is all about.
    Getting manufacturing up for the popular devices and getting the availability up.
    Releasing the much rumored tablet.

    A very key bear issue is Nokia should be very much aware of that hurts demand, and that is "We keep lowering the prices and then get demand" It will hold a consumer/enterprise purchase back until the price is right.

  • Elop The Magnificent Makes Nokia's Dividend Disappear [View article]
    I must disagree with some statements the author of this article has written.

    On manufacturing Lumia´s and Asha smartphones.
    The lengthy transcript for Q4 2012 clearly tells, that they are very much aware and excited by what is coming to compete against 4´inch android for 100$.

    This bear article has clearly and loudly forgot to investigate the ASP from Nokia´s competitors, only 3%, that is good compared to the rest of the market. Nokia´s vietnam product facility is actually up and running.

    Lumia 620/920 Productions, it must be clear that the supply issue is being resolved at the expense of symbian smartphone. The author here, would want Nokia to say to its competitors, what detailed plan there is.

    Which company would ever tell what unfinished product they have and when it will be produced?

    The entire management team in Nokia, need to focus on sales information, the potential is there, supply constraints was the issue here. Elop should give another person the responsibility for carrying out the remaining cuts, so he can focus on getting the Lumia message out and get out of the mindset of cuts.

  • 4 Ways To Become A Better Self-Directed Investor [View article]
    I Liked this article and I want to add something very important dealing with stocks.

    First you should identify who you are as an investor, bull, bear, short, long, day trader and most important.

    For a beginner you should create a portfolio of companies that you know, and want to spend time following, new product releases, CEO and management, and start understanding bull/bear articles on investors web sites. In here, lies the momentum, long, short, bull, bear, day trade strategy that you should apply when selecting how you should deal with a stock.

    You need a tool, a webbased platform that can set trades to what you want to loose and earn with real cash. Can you buy in the premarket and sell in the after-hours and the most important thing here is to identify the time between a typical bull sale and when the real money gets into your account.

    Some time, a stock in your portfolio could have a huge up/down side and you want trade in that time period which could be a 30 min window during the day. That is why it is so important to select a website with low fees and learn when you get the money from a trade.

    I completely agree, successful stockbrokers are the ones with big nerve, if you emotional can handle to know that an unsold portfolio of 100.000 dollar is only worth 23.000 dollar and you want to wait, because you know the stock is going to be worth a lot more down the road.

    Which leaves me to the most important thing in the market, can you wait until the stock is worth a million dollars and not sell when it is 190.000 dollar.

    Going long on a stock is a very dangerous game, and you have to know WHY the stock price is growing down the road and industry knowledge is very important in a Long.

    That is why it is so very important to have an enter/exit strategy for specific stock in your portfolio and a webbased buying selling platform that can support your way of trading/managing risk.

  • What Is Wrong With Intel? [View article]

    You are absolutely correct :-)

    The BYOD concept, is a challenge against the Client/Server setups that Intel dominates.

    The market trend is now, we are moving more like a BYOD/Server setup in witch were AMD/Intel CPU previously have dominated, now ARMH and QCOM have joined the hardware space.

  • What Is Wrong With Intel? [View article]

    People do not buy PC or laptops atm., why, the macro economic environment, it has nothing to do with tablets or smartphones.

    Most people know that in order to have a decent PC they need at least an i5 or i7 and they cost more than the average is willing to buy.

    When the smartphone/tablet market begins to saturate in consumer and enterprise, then people would discover that their PC´s might be slow so they would want to a new PC.

    Also, when the macro economic environment begins to improve and organic growth start a comeback then a huge replacement cycle is likely to occur.

    When the BYOD nightmare is over and investors start to realize that Windows pro 8, is a better end user solution to solve many known day to day operations that they face today, then Intel would be gaining even more.

    The Microsoft skydrive, is the "shared file" solution to keep and easy access from anywhere and when the Datacenters starts to embrace Windows 2012 and its cloud functions then all people would understand the biggest change in IT, is slowly, but surely coming.
