i have owned AMD in the past back when the Athlon was to take the crown from intel and the Itanium has nothing to do with anything.. The Itanium is a server cpu, non x86 and competitive with RISC.. Intel abandoned the original Pentium architecture for the P4 which was not efficient. Its branch prediction was a 20 stages pipeline compared to 12 stages for the original Pentium. Because branch prediction was so large up to 40% data may needed to be reprocessed. AMD implemented double data rate technology from DEC Alpha which allowed the CPU bus to hit the system memory twice per clock rate which helped AMD outperform Intel by a long shot. AMD was the first x86 to hit 1ghz.. When Intel decided to reworked the older Pentium architecture AMD was trailing once again..
I road AMD from 15 to almost 90 back then before getting out,.. I'm now back in with 30k @ 2.46.... up 50 G'a in less then a month.... Stay negative and you'll just keep losing out.. why even be here?
Nice job punapetteri
Using Adduplex If supply issues with the 920 weren't addressed and Nokia were still only producing 600,000 920's per month , 920 being @ 14% would put Nokia well above 12.5 million Lumias for Q1 :)
Doubtful there were supply restraints ramping up the 620 like there was ramping the 920, the only phones using the snapdragon MSM8227 are HTC Windows Phone 8S,, Nokia Lumia 620, 520, and 720. 620 uses Nokia's own tempered glass screen, and a lower cost sony camera. The phone should be basic to mass produce..Q4 The 920 did 1.2 million in 8 weeks with restraints, the 620 in 6 weeks should fly.. Feature phones nokia can produce 100 million. Hopefully we can get to this level with smart phones at some point quickly..
I wouldn't be surprised if the 920 has also ramped up and that supply issues are a thing of the past. Elop said supply issues would be addressed in Q1 ..just something to keep in mind
China mobile were slow to receive its 920 might not reflect the rest of the world's supplies of 920's. CM 920T uses a different S4 Pro MSM8960T which is a newer processor and may have had lower yield numbers.
I hope we get news on the 2 million Lumia cake in china that was in the news on march 6th
The 820 being widely available and highly subsidized for free could also post some good numbers..
Q1 the WP8 lumia's launched and became available to at least double the customers as it was in Q4
I feel anything over 7 would be acceptable .. 10-12 which I'm hoping for would be considered a blowout IMHO.
2Q Nokia will see big growth.. i think the 520 will become the worlds most popular phone by the end of the year being under $200. Android will not be able to compete on the price point with a stable product. The operation of the 520 is more stable then a Iphone 4, with
the same MP camera.. Pack in all Nokias Software, maps , music, data compression, lenses... I guarantee Best bang for the buck will win out.
Estimate over 7 million lumias should be a no brainier .. The 820 and 920 were released on Nov 7 in limited markets with only 8 weeks of sales. Combined with the deadend WP 7.5 gave lumia sales of 4.4 million.. Supply issues in q4 for the 920 were said to be 600,000 per month or 1.2 million for 8 weeks, 1.8 million for a full quarter.. now if you think no improvement have taken place and the yield of the 820 and 620 are just as bad as the 920 that would give Nokia 5.4 million. How many WP7.5 phones sold? Say 1.8 million for the rest of the Lumia 7.5 line up brings us over 7 million.... i'm looking for over 10 million with 12 million being a High
How i understand it is Nokia paid taxes due to the Finish gov.. Thea tax treaty between Finland and India prevents double taxation and if taxes were paid to the wrong gov the finish gov would be responsible.
Umm.. Nokia will end up paying Microsoft more then they receive during the remainder of the agreement, doesn't mean MS isn't paying Nokia Support in the amount of $250 million+ per quarter.. Nokia Pays per copy licensee and when Nokia is capable of flooding the market with low priced to high priced phones maybe over 50 million per Quarters is the break even number, if per copy is $20 per licensee.. Nokia eventually sees themselves producing a lot of WP, at various price points and this is why they see themselves owning MS more then they receive in the future.
Nokia should close down Navtec/Here mapping service? going android they would be supporting google mapping. 8.1 billion in the toilet seems like a smart move?
I see a lot of poor comparisons using google trends .. seems this comparison shows Nokia is More popular them Apple. taking the Asha & Lumia combined has about as much interest as the iphone 5.
i think the 620's had big sales as well as lumia being available in at least 50% new markets for Q1 including China and India, i 'm looking for 10-12 million lumias 12 million Asha & 80 million feature phones..
My Avg is $2.91 i own 50k shares now.. share price is way to low.. this is BK pricing, we are at a price point now where we were at before WP8,and before nokia's phone proven to rock ,before WP8 marketing took place, a world wide release, a lineup of WP8 everyone could afford, ,being top 3 ATT, top seller t mobile ,before Verizon was on board, before every china carrier subsidizing , all patent royalties now collected, before all car manufacturers decided on navtec .before being profitable! . there is a lot more this is just off the top of my head.. its all manipulation, GS had 119 million shares while downgrading. last time i looked they have 109 million.. its all a scam, do your own research and wait for facts is all we can do.
that was the plan from the beginning actually more ..The deal between MS and Nokia is Microsoft gives like $1.3 billion ( i think its 1 billion EU) per year in support to Nokia.. Nokia in return must pay a per copy licensing fee around $20. Microsoft and Nokia have both stated Nokia will end up paying Microsoft more during the duration of the agreement.. Well for this to happen at $20 a copy Nokia needs to sell around 60 million WP per quarter.. This is the plan and Nokia as well as Microsoft are counting on at least 60 million WP per quarter..
have you ever used a android phone? like 2.2-2.4 which is low cos,t non upgradeable, and is going to compete with low cost lumias.? low cost android phones are utter junk freeze, crash, unreliable... have you tried WP8? if you have, common sense should help give you a opinion.. the low end lumias use hardware that is in less of a demand and not so much in shortage. we just have to hope in time they will be able to produce these cheap lumias quickly.. feature phone speed would be nice around 100 million per quarter..
gotcha.. Must of been confused because it lists Distribution of Earnings
We distribute retained earnings, if any, within the limits set by the Finnish Companies Act. We make and calculate the distribution, if any, either in the form of cash dividends, share buy-backs, or in some other form or a combination of these. There is no specific formula by which the amount of a distribution is determined, although some limits set by law are discussed below. The timing and amount of future distributions of retained earnings, if any, will depend on our future results and financial condition.
Under the Finnish Companies Act, we may distribute retained earnings on our shares only upon a shareholders’ resolution and subject to limited exceptions in the amount proposed by our Board of Directors. The amount of any distribution is limited to the amount of distributable earnings of the parent company pursuant to the last accounts approved by our shareholders, taking into account the material changes in the financial situation of the company after the end of the last financial period and a statutory requirement that the distribution of earnings must not result in insolvency of the company. Subject to exceptions relating to the right of minority shareholders to request for a certain minimum distribution, the distribution may not exceed the amount proposed by the Board of Directors.
So they arn't paying a dividend or buying back shares which is stated that they do with earnings.?
fr3nchmodel I must of missed Elop saying there will be no repurchase of shares. i put a question mark and you gave me a thumbs down??..
So the meeting that hasn't happened Yet on May 7 2013 they will discuss repurchasing shares but i should ignore that ?
I just started looking over Nokia'a SEC filing I must of missed this announcement
On January 24, 2013, we announced that the Board of Directors will propose that the Annual General Meeting convening on May 7, 2013 authorize the Board to resolve to repurchase a maximum of 370 million Nokia shares. The proposed maximum number of shares that may be repurchased corresponds to less than 10% of all the shares of the company. The shares may be repurchased in order to develop the capital structure of the company, finance or carry out acquisitions or other arrangements, settle the company’s equity-based incentive plans, be transferred for other purposes, or be cancelled. The shares may be repurchased either through a tender offer made to all shareholders on equal terms, or in marketplaces by repurchasing the shares in another proportion than that of the current shareholders. The authorization would be effective until June 30, 2014 and terminate the current authorization for repurchasing of the company’s shares resolved at the Annual General Meeting on May 3, 2012.
No concerns for Nokia. Only thing that would have a chance to compete with Nokia is a Surface phone & only for the Microsoft name, once compared head to head Nokia would still come out on top in a fair market.
Nokia beats out every smart phone maker with built quality, camera technology (more MP doesn't= quality), Navigation Software, Free Music streaming, Xpress which compresses internet data by 80%, lenses,and other exclusives
My opinion Asian countries do not like to buy US I'm thinking how the PlayStation3 killed the xbox360 in Asia Maybe getting more Asian company onboard with the American Company Microsoft will bring more acceptance, it's worked out for Google and the Korean Co Samsung. Nokia is already accepted
