Serious? Its being amplified to keep PPS down
sweet and orderly exiits for giant hedgies /shorts,
look at the stop sweeps every day. ..imho..
In truth, your Giant Hedge, Short exit theory
Is actually more of a "conspiracy": than the FACTS of Elop actions, sandbagged product availability, sandbagged marketing, sandbagged AT&T efforts, ETC,ETC...
About ALU. The sale likelihood has always been for only a portion. A portion that enhances NSN.
The union/French Govt/anchors/issues have never been a serious option.
They want to sell off SOME assets to lean up...just like Nokia.
Ya true many have already bought their shares and are just waiting for the show (earnings) that may explain the low volume. The alu news is nothing new to the B-houses hell they set it up so they already staked their positions long or short on that issue. so its a wait to hear earns game i guess. Not only earnings but the future of nokia! man this will be the most exciting earns cc ever maybe eh?.
I want to ask you a personal question. f7, you once mention about your personal interest and involvement in aircrafts. If I'm correct you own one and often do some mechanical work on it and I guess, you also fly it. Now to the point. Have you heard about Oshkosh Experimental Aircraft Show, a once a year, every year in early August huge public air show attended by 1 to 1.5 mill spectators. I just returned from Oshkosh 2 hrs ago after visiting my relatives. The air show itself I attended a few times in the past cause my brother, a pilot, participated in the show a number of times.
Very insightful. Thinking about it more, the deal with MSFT has already happened, whatever vote will happen is irrelevant. It's done. I think shorts are involved or ignorant people like myself playing along with the fear. Whenever the fake debt ceiling situation is over soon, we will be over 7.
harley, I think this one of your best investigative thinking conclusion and I'm dead serious about it. For quite some time I was wondering how those big boys are going to liquidate their huge short positions ? Now, some of the smart a$$e$ will again suspect conspiratorial nonsense drivel ( who cares) My theory, and I want to stress "theory", I came to consider as highly possible is that there could be some"secret agreement" that pps low level time window will be maintained for a limited period of time to create an opportunity to allow big boys (mostly hedges) to cover their short positions and this way save their a$$e$. In return after this operation, cod name(lol) "save your #$%$ is completed the big boys are obliged to bid the pps higher up to agreed level (?) MMs involved those independent and those from trading brokerage firms can make a handsome profits. So this is potentially win/win situation for all parties involved. Now some morality guardians and low abiding citizens will scream in outrage "but this is illegal" then you naive lemmings haven't seen nothing yet. Get a book " The Den of Thieves" One can not exclude such or similar arrangement. In this WS community this kind of "game" can be considered a relatively innocent "deal" Makes any sense or what ?
