Update: Coinstar And Nokia

|Includes: NOK, Outerwall Inc. (OUTR)

The figures below track the total returns of each stock that I have written articles about based on when the articles were published. Each comparison assumes an equal investment in the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) when each article was published.

Comment: Coinstar's stock (NASDAQ:CSTR) has been negatively impacted by a lack of details on the Verizon (NYSE:VZ) streaming partnership and decreased rentals during Q3 as a result of the Olympics. If Q4 earnings and FY13 guidance disappoints then the stock should be sold.

Comment: Nokia's stock (NYSE:NOK) has been positively impacted by strong Lumia 920 sales and the launch of the Here maps application. The Lumia 920 launch in India and China in December 2012 could boost shares further.


-Updates will be posted periodically.

-If applicable, stock and ETF prices have been adjusted to reflect dividend payments.

Disclosure: I am long CSTR, NOK.
