Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2014

I am a recently-retired individual investor and have managed my own investments for over 35 years. My professional background is in the finance area. I believe that the benefits of investing, and the market, should be understandable and available to everyone, including those with little or no financial background. My hope is to explain concepts simply, taking much of the mystery and fear out of the process.  To keep up with my very latest, please subscribe to my Substack newsletter and Twitter feed. In addition to my personal writing, I am a contributing author for Hoya Capital Income Builder

At the Lumia 1020 release event, Stephen Elop promised that the phone would be the beneficiary of a coordinated marketing campaign featuring the combined efforts and budgets of Nokia, Microsoft, and AT&T. He basically promised that nothing would be hidden in a back room, or under the counter, as many have observed at both dedicated stores as well as the cellular kiosks at Costco.

Even though I am a patient Nokia long, I am watching to see how closely the results match the promise. There is a innovation window here that needs to be exploited. It's time to put up or shut up.

Disclosure: I am long NOK.
