ZH: Meanwhile In China, Cow-Collateralized Stock Buybacks
... And then there is the truth: "Huishan Dairy seems to be selling cows and leasing them back in order to raise money now, because they’ve been using cash to buy back shares," said RHB’s Yuen, who has a “sell” rating on the stock. "The chairman wants to prop up the share price for reasons that are unclear. It could be a way to get better terms for share pledged-based loans, which he’s done before .....".
The Chinese also got their government banks to issue $15+ billion worth of loans against the unproven patent portfolios of Chinese companies as part of their long-term strategy to establish a market value for cheap and useless Chinese patents. One Chinese paper company was able to borrow $1.3 billion against 100+ patents that have never been tested in court. The Chinese probably figure that if Chinese state-owned banks keep on buying and selling those loans backed by patents among themselves then that will eventually establish a price for those patents that the Chinese will never be able to get outside of China because of their sheer contempt for the intellectual properties of other countries.
Glad to see someone besides myself who knows what they're doing. I added at $5.15 .. Don't think we will ever see those low numbers anymore. Good job!
In the first trial, the jury of 12 was told to assume that the APIs/SSO were copyrightable. The jury found infringement, but hung (9 vs 3) on the issue of fair use. In this trial, the CAFC already ruled that the APIs/SSO were protected by copyright but the jury of 10 found in favor of Google 10 vs 0.
Both sides telegraphed their intentions before the trial to appeal any adverse decision. There is also nothing to indicate that any decision would induce a settlement so this one is headed for the CAFC like a bullet. Oracle forcefully questioned the judge's impartiality in the formulation of the jury instructions so that is likely to be one of the major areas of appeal, butIn any event, there doesn't seem to be anything to stop the CAFC from using their de novo superpowers. Again.;-)
China Telecom is deploying Alcatel-Lucent's IP routing technology, including the 7950 XRS IP Core Router and 7750 Service Router, ...
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) will expand the deployment of its 7950 XRS IP Core Router with China Unicom to meet ...
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is to deploy its powerful 7950 XRS IP Core Router in China Mobile’s CMNET – its national IP backbone network serving the world’s largest subscriber base - and metro networks. -
This latest development is an expansion of Alcatel-Lucent’s 7950 XRS Core Router deployment in China Mobile’s next generation Ethernet network. ***Deployment will be completed toward the end of 2016.***
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext and NYSE: ALU) and China’s SGIT (State Grid Information & Telecommunication Company Ltd) are teaming up to help utilities more effectively manage peak electricity demand, identify opportunities for power savings and cut down on energy usage. The two companies will do this by increasing the intelligence in utilities’ power distribution systems, or ‘smart grids’, which allow the continuous measurement, monitoring, control and adjustment of power distribution.
Alcatel-Lucent, a leading provider of telecommunications technology with a long history of delivering to the utility market, and SGIT, a subsidiary of SGCC (State Grid Corporation of China), one of the largest utility companies in the world, will address some of the biggest challenges related to smart grids - accessing data used to track energy usage from the plethora of devices including smart meters, analysing that data and delivering that information to the utility. This information can then be used by utility companies to monitor and control peak and off-peak demand and more effectively manage delivery during those times, which can help cut costs and reduce outages and waste.
Chinese officials have outlined plans to invest nearly $500 billion in electric power infrastructure - including roughly $90 billion in smart grid technologies - by 2020, a strategy experts say could significantly improve the nation's energy efficiency and cement a dominant position in the smart grid market.
According to a report by the Center for American Progress, Chinese leaders view smart grid technology as "the next industrial revolution," and see an opportunity to emerge as the world leader in the supply chain for smart grid equipment and technology. Using increasingly sophisticated sensors, computers, and wireless devices, smart grid technology is able to transmit and distribute electricity more efficiently to customers and adapt operations to fit changing conditions, from shifting weather to user demand.

CLSA upgraded the stock to "outperform" from "underperform."
The firm also upped its price target on the telecommunications stock to $6.25 from $5.25.
The decline in Nokia's stock is overdone and most of the bad news is behind the Finland-based company, CLSA wrote in a note to investors cited by CNBC.com.
"If you are looking for revenue growth, stop reading. But if you're looking for a bombed-out stock with a reasonable valuation, solid management, strong balance sheet, a lot of bad news behind it, and significant optionality, read on," the firm said."
Additionally, CLSA sees greater potential for Nokia's 2017 and 2018 earnings upgrades as its synergy story unfolds.
Cheers to many more.Lots of gloom in nok land but as one of the biggest network companies in the world I think we're getting hammered a little hard.Hope springs eternal lol have a good summer.
