I think I`ve found someone [ and there are no doubt others] who is more of a sheep than I am. How can you stand for that with out protesting?
It was a slow and bumpy start to the year for Juniper -- in large part because of weak telco spending in the first quarter -- but the vendor says it's expecting better to come in the second half of the year…
On Juniper's first-quarter earnings call, executives noted that some expected orders from operators in the US and Europe had been delayed. Such delays are significant for the vendor, as its top ten customer list comprises five telcos, four cable or cloud operators and one enterprise. Most of these major customers are in North America: In the first quarter, only three of its top ten customers were located outside the US.
Rahim was asked on the call if the weaker operator capex spend in the first quarter could be a trend for the year. "It's fair to say that the telecoms operators -- [in the] US and maybe in other places around the world -- are off to a slow start this year," the CEO said.
"The telco space is just a little bit complicated right now as they evolve their architectures," he added. Carriers are running their networks "hot" -- taking a wait and see attitude to expected updates -- as they evaluate "new network architectures." This ranges from how to deploy and manage virtualization technologies to the updating of the mobile edge and supporting packet and transport infrastructure…
Rahim was asked several times if he thought there could be further delays to operator spend, but he stuck to his guns, saying: "We are much more confident that those deployments are going to happen in the second quarter and beyond."

My broker said since I opted not to convert, I am being cashed out at $3.25 a share which is 0.55 of the Nokia share price on the close of April 25th. He did not say how long it would take before I see it deposited into my account.
Nice, you have watched Wall Street, great movie btw. Boiler Room is another fine piece of art. Everyone should love Nokia, even Gordon Gekko :)
fritzhound who is your Broker and Fall payout is way out, hope the Broker not playing a game and holding on to these ADR to make. If one surrender the ADR then the payout should be close to 4/25.. I am sure there are millions of stocks in this situation. NOK hasnt got to 95% yet...so rest of the Shares are somewhere..
I will be talking to my Broker on Monday again..
I`m Getting in touch with The Better Business Bureau and The SEC this Monday May 2 and I may institute a class action suit in order to have the money that is being withheld from me and other unfortunate investors.

I was told that I would be compensated in the fall with a 55 percent of of my holdings in NOK stocks.[i was originaly told that it would be April 25.} there has to be many others in our predicament and this should be reported to the SEC or have a class action suit initiated. Just don`t let it go! RSVP
... appears to be a popular early trend in Europe. Even BMW is coming up with its own rent-a-beamer program....wonder how that will play out here. More and more cars are leased (30+%) and trucks/suvs continue to outnumber cars......you might as well rent out your wife if you're going to rent out your truck ;-)
" ... It’s largely forgotten that during the 2000 top formation, the S&P 500 lost 12% from July-October 1999, recovered to fresh highs, retreated by nearly 10% from December 1999 to February 2000, recovered to fresh highs, experienced another 10% correction into May, recovered to a new high in total return (though not in price) on September 1, 2000, retreated 17% by December, and by January 2001 had recovered within 10% from its all-time high, and was unchanged from its level of June 1999.
Likewise, during the 2007 top formation, the S&P 500 corrected nearly 10% from July to August, recovered to a fresh high in October, corrected over 10% into November, recovered nearly all of it by December, followed with a 16% loss, and by May 2008 had recovered within 9% of its all-time high, and was unchanged from its level of October 2006 ...

" ... The analysis above demonstrates why, in market cycles across a century of history, the strongest market return/risk profiles we identify are associated with a material retreat in valuations that is then joined by an early improvement in market action. By the time value investors are all-in, trend-followers are out. They then have to pry stock away from committed value investors once market action begins to improve, driving prices sharply higher. Conversely, the most severe market collapses are associated with steep overvaluation that is then joined by initial deterioration in market action. By the time trend-followers are all-in, value investors are out, and attempts by trend-followers to exit require prices to decline until skittish value-conscious investors are willing to absorb the shares being offered for sale ...

Interesting. Obviously this won't send Nokia's stock to da moon, but I like the idea in general. Not sure how this work in practice? I would not trust my neighbor as much as say Avis about the state of a rented car? There has to be some kind trust relation between renter and rentee.
"... Drivy, a French start-up that lets you put your own car up for rent or hire someone else's, has raised 31 million euros ($35 million), as it looks to take on established rental companies.
Cathay Innovation and Nokia Growth Partners (NGP), which is Nokia's venture capital fund, led the round with the participation of early investors Bpifrance's Ecotechnologie Fund and Index Ventures.
The nearly six-year-old start-up lets you put your car on its platform to be rented. And a user can hire a car, just like they would rent a place on Airbnb for example. ..."
The FCC today announced an initial spectrum clearing target of 126 MHz for the 600 MHz incentive auction, a figure that represents the maximum amount of spectrum the commission had hoped to offer.
The FCC last year established a spectrum clearing range from 42 MHz to 126 MHz. Carriers had hoped the FCC would be able to clear at least 80 MHz ...
.... FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler echoed those sentiments in a statement: "Robust broadcaster participation is key to the success of the incentive auction. Today's announcement reflects the voluntary decision by many broadcasters that this auction truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Wheeler said. "The 126 MHz initial clearing target ensures that wireless carriers and other forward auction bidders have their chance to compete for the maximum amount of low-band 'beachfront' spectrum. The wireless industry has said it needs additional spectrum to meet growing customer demand and usher in the age of 5G. The broadcasters have stepped up and done their part to fulfill that demand ... "
... AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon have all committed to bidding in the auction. Analysts at Wells Fargo estimated that AT&T could spend up to $10 billion on a 2x10 MHz chunk of nationwide spectrum, and T-Mobile will bid as much as $8 billion and Verizon could bid as much #$%$ billion.
Sprint won't be participating in the auction, but other potential bidders include Comcast and Dish Network.
The reverse auction for broadcasters, which will adhere to a clock phase format, will begin May 31. That will be preceded by mock auctions on May 25 and May 26. The reverse auction could take up to one month ...
