  • Alcatel-Lucent: Why I Think The Equity Is Worthless [View article]
    In a recent Financial Times article (4/14) a consensus forecast amongst 44 polled investment analysts covering Alcatel Lucent SA advise that the company will outperform the market. The FT forecast is in marked contrast to the BUI forecast which sees ALU as generating losses and being worthless.

  • Alcatel-Lucent Upgraded To BUY, 39% Upside Potential [View article]
    I want to see ALU succeed...and it's true that ALU has performed well this past year under Combes. Having said that, I think Nettligent has also brought up some good points which may explain why ALU continues to meander. ALU does need to keep a specific knowledge base of employees to retain continuity and performance in development and deployment of their new technologies. As such, they would need to lay-off very selectively. As far as ALU employees starting their own companies, that is bizarre and wouldn't be effective in today's competitive environment. To retain good employees, salary cuts across the board might be far more effective in keeping ALU competitive. I agree that "rosy announcements" are worthless and satisfying Wall St. at the expense of client-customers and will eventually backfire. ALU now needs more than ever what it has always needed...real business savvy and strong leadership! If Combes doesn't rise to the task, the game is over and ALU remains a penny-stock trading in a narrow range for speculation only! The ball is in his court and he must lead ALU to perform with tangible results. ALU’s future is NOW!

    Nett: It's not clear why you sold all your ALU shares?

    For 2014 I'd put more faith in BMO Capital's upgrade of ALU than I would in Natixis. Natixis's financial position has been shaky at best plus they're a French bank. Together, they certainly don't wash the 2014 downgrades...not yet anyway!

  • $1 Billion Contract Win Should Help Alcatel-Lucent Post A New 52-Week High [View article]
    ALU continues doing well but needs a lot more of the same. There's a big difference in a one-time "posting" of a 52-week high than in "sustaining" it !!

  • Alcatel-Lucent wins €750M deal from China Mobile [View news story]
    This is good news, but as a longer-term ALU investor I still need to see bottom line performance improving on a sustained basis. It may be "in the works", but it has yet to happen ?!?!

    It's not at all sad to see investors go short on Alcatel Lucent on the face of the positive appraisal from BMO Capital. Given what's going on in todays "political" environment especially when combined with ALU's risk factors, it's smart!

    As Reader 15277602 said in an earlier comment..."customers of ALU, NSN, Ericsson and Huawei expect stability...and not invest hundreds of millions for equipment from a vendor which is not financially and "politically" stable."

    Enough of the nonsense excuses...ALU's had 7 years of them!!
