    Fast Money's at it again....

    One of the panelists said yes, nokia is beginning to sell phones, but......
    If they are stuffing the channel or fixing their books, then they will lose the war.
    Gimme a break?
    Nokia should sue the show.
    Better yet, a movement should start whereby everyone boycotts CNBC. ALL of CNBC.
    I'm getting tired of opinionated and potentially self serving newscasts.
    Bring back Louis Rukeyser.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I think the simple answer to their seeming illogical off base and nasty comments is they are probably paid by Apple.

      No doubt Apple is a sponsor on the show, so its kind of like paid clicks on the inernet. Everytime these guys mention the Apple name or bash a competitor of Apple on TV, I believe the cash register rings for this outfit. They are not selling computers for Apple, they are selling Apple stock.

      My guess is that about 80% of their recommendations (mostly from crammer) are actually sponsors on the show. So they get you to buy stocks of their sponsors. Like everyone else on TV these guys should state a disclaimer everytime they give stock advice as to whether they own the stock or are receiving money for pushing it.

      A couple of weeks ago Andrew had a slip of the tongue, he was intending to talk straight about a particular stock but gave a disclaimer to his partner that he was going to do this as the stock was not a sponsor of the show. So he did state a disclaimer which I give him full credit for. They all should do this.

      Sentiment: Buy

      Yeah, the guy is a #$%$ They are down 3 million in phone sales compared to Q3!

    • What they should be doing is asking Tim Cook, about the fiasco of blowing a 700M+ market deal and they should be demanding from Tim Cook, exactly where is this 700M+ market going to be coming from to sell their overpriced Apple products into. Or the more direct question to Tim Cook should be whether he is still in the CEO position at Apple within 2 years.

    • Yeh, it seemed like sour grapes because they missed the move.

      CNBC is full of knuckleheads. They all graduated from the three stooges academy.

      Do your own due diligence.
