Fair reply, I'm not sure how to reconcile that figure with the BB terminal. Originally I thought it was only showing Nasdaq holdings, but it gives a total of 3 billion shares so i presume it is tallying up the Helsinki market as well, although I am surprised that the Nasdaq would be compiling figures from foreign exchanges.
Cheers Z, I won't stone the messenger don't worry.
Interesting that today Huawei posted 19% increase on revenue, and last week Ericson posted better than expected profits, and both company's released bouyant statements about the industry.
I guess this might explain NOKs 3% move up yesterday, but i would have expected a move up again today on Huawei news.
It will be interesting, but I think that every quarter when anticipating the results
I guess NOK used to run the equivalent of MSFTs strategy, and now we will hopefully change to Qualcomm's and if we can get anywhere near that 50% mark, we will be doing fine
Really good find Josh.
I was particularly interested in the following paragraphs describing different strategies of the patent holders,
"The intellectual property strategy of Apple is somewhat different from those of other global enterprises. For example, Qualcomm has concentrated on essential patents and registered only decent patents through in-house screening to obtain high royalties. The ratio of registered patents to overall inventions is known to be around 50 percent in Qualcomm.
Microsoft’s strategic goal is the protection of its business rather than royalties, and IBM is securing patents mainly for defensive purposes, that is, reduction of royalty payments. IBM has been rather passive in licensing activities even in the event of patent infringement."
Yeah I seen he had mentioned it,, nice catch ;)

Nokia's network margins seen falling in second-quarter: Reuters poll
OSAKA -- Panasonic has apparently reached a basic agreement to sell its cellphone base station business to Finland's Nokia. The Japanese electronics maker, which has been streamlining, wants to further free itself to focus on growth fields.
Among Japanese base station suppliers, the Osaka-based company ranks third, after NEC and Fujitsu. But earnings have taken a hit from stiff competition with overseas rivals, including Nokia and Sweden's Ericsson.
Sources on Saturday told The Nikkei that Panasonic will part with the base station operations of subsidiary Panasonic System Networks, which include wireless control systems for communications equipment. The Tokyo-based unit delivers the equipment to major Japanese wireless carrier NTT Docomo, among others. In fiscal 2013, which ended March, sales came to about 20 billion yen ($197 million), with the company controlling roughly 9% of the domestic market.
Panasonic is expected to exchange a memorandum of understanding with Nokia soon. The two companies will then work out the finer details, including the future of the unit's employees, and finalize a deal. The transaction's value is likely to be in the billions of yen.
The Japanese parent is looking to sell the unit by the end of the current fiscal year through next March. It is keen to slim down and devote itself to promising products for automobiles and homes.
According to MCA, a Tokyo-based mobile industry research company, Japan's base station market was worth about 260 billion yen in fiscal 2013. Nokia is the market leader with a 26% share. Since 2007, the Finnish company has had a partnership with Panasonic to develop products for NTT Docomo's LTE high-speed telecommunications services.
Nokia intends to capitalize on Panasonic's ties with NTT Docomo to further expand its market share in Japan.
just learned some impersonator does not know how to spelll Reuters.
Mobile broadband base station unit
"OSAKA, July 20 (Kyodo) — Panasonic Corp. will sell its mobile phone base station business to Finland's Nokia as it redirects resources to other growing operations, sources close to the matter said Sunday.
The Osaka-based electronics manufacturer is expected to sell the business for several billion yen, closing the deal by the end of March 2015, they said.
Panasonic provides wireless control systems and related equipment to mobile communication carriers such as NTT Docomo Inc. through a subsidiary, Panasonic System Networks Co.
Competition has been intensifying with domestic and overseas providers of base station equipment, including NEC Corp. and Fujitsu Ltd.
The expected deal with Nokia would lead to a further scale down of the mobile communication business for Panasonic, which has withdrawn from production of consumer-use smartphones."
Td Ameritrade UK ...They taxed me 30% automatically on the dividend because it was on the US board....Never knew they would do that.
To answer your question "no you do not get taxed twice"
I will email my broker so I have record proof later.
Going to ask him if they "automatically" take 30% tax on "profit" on my US stocks when I sell them.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Well, Samsung pretty much conceded that point about additional royalties when they agreed to the expedited binding arbitration deal with Nokia in November 2013 so this is not really new although it is always good to hear a senior Samsung lawyer reiterate it. It also appears that they may be using a US arbitrator.
Nokia actually did Samsung a favor by agreeing to binding arbitration at a time when the EU was on the verge of issuing its findings from its investigation of Samsung's abuses of SEPs (standards essential patents.) The EU could have fined Samsung up to 10% of its global sales for repeatedly refusing to license its SEPs on a FRAND basis, but they eventually accepted Samsung's proposal to submit all SEP disputes to binding arbitration for a period of 5 years. The Nokia agreement added substance to Samsung's proposal. Nokia previously had led an EU effort to penalize Samsung and other Asian manufacturers for monitor price-fixing so Nokia's assent to the expedited binding arbitration deal at the heart of the Samsung proposal carried weight and went a long way towards the EU acceptance of the Samsung proposal.
According to one survey at the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), the average binding arbitration process is around 23 months from start to binding decision but before any appeal to vacate by either party.
Nokia's 2005 binding arbitration case (US arbitrator, ICC) with Interdigital over the wording of the most favored licensee clause in their old contract took about 30 months from start to finish. Nokia's 2012 binding arbitration case (Sweden arbitrator, ICC) with Blackberry over some WIFI standard essential patents took about 8-9 months. Nokia's definitive reference to 2015 (read: below industry average duration) as the year that additional royalties will be determined indicates to me that Nokia got some concessions from Samsung for supporting its EU proposal including a very streamlined arbitration process. Likely early 2015.
Sounds good for the consumer / merchant...but what about your privacy.
Just heard about Verizon loyalty program. 1 point for every $1 spent, as long as you allow them to track your locations. Seems right up HERE's future with indoor mapping/advertisements.
hard to believe that statement was made by treir senior counsel.. but .......IT DEFINITELY WAS !!!!
it's just a matter of time before this concept gets priced into share price.
thanks for the post
