Why take your money out on this stock at this point? You held through the very uncertain times of 2012 and 2013 and bought low at a big risk. Now NOK has life at at 8 bucks! They are offering dividends, who would ever thought that. Dividends are a good thing, why not enjoy the dividend? Your post doesn't make good business sense. I think the same person with multiple aliases is running this board. This is a GOOD time and with some of these posts, its seems like a bad time - I don't get it. But I do get it, but i don't know the point of it, especially if it doesn't move the stock one way or the other. These boards can be a BIG waste of time.
Panic/Fear runs the market, so why not here? This time is good enough than any. But in reality, if you are able to get pass the "fear," this is a nice company. I thought it would be a $13 stock this year, but I think I might be incorrect. But that is ok especially on the year we had last year. Last year, was the make or break year, going forward is patience. The market also was up big time last year, so I think this year is a status quo year - that's how it goes. Panic all you want with this or any company, but sometimes you need to step back and relax.
The guy's bored, like most of us posting on a consistent basis. Either bored at work or home or both. Think about it, we do crappie jobs to make a buck and we HOPE for a big splash so we can get the heck out or bring us close to getting out. That may go for relationship too, depending on the person. I'm not sure why people have to fight each other on these boards if the goal is for us is the kind of life we want, but again, people are bored, so they will write anything. I get it.
No dividend yet. Believe me it would be big news with the NOK community if they announced a dividend. I would rather them use the potential upcoming dividend and continue to build the business with it, but I also understand the politics of it.
NOK is a work in progress, so the bottomline is maybe not that important as it would be in 2015. NOK may have a "grace period" when it comes to real bottomline. If NOK surprises that would be big news and good for our pockets!
You are right. People think, even people who should know better, that NOK is in the phone business, which it is not. People get use to a certain way over many years and when things change, the mind freezes and reverts back to the past. Like a rubberband. Cramer should know better, but he is use to the past and it is comfortable, so why strain your brain to think of how things are now. So he gives out misleading opinions, instead of being knowledgeable and on the ball and is living in the old paradigm. He should know better as most people on this board, even if you hate NOK and think it will go bankrupt tomorrow.
I think what died first is you, the only thing left is your ghost floating on this board. You will see the light soon, please go to it and enjoy your next adventure.
I thought Nokia was in another business now or was he meaning MIcrosoft? Let's say the Nokia smartphones sell really well, will the stock of NOK do well or will MSFT stock do well or both? Also conversely, the smartphones are a disappointment, are NOK stock affected or MSFT or both? I'm not sure of the answer because I do not make the rules. Sometimes I think the rules are made up along the way whenever it suit a particular agenda.
Elop wasn't the worst, have you had your eyes closed for the last 2 or 3 years? He cut and slashed this company on orders from the board and transformed it into what it is today. Now Elop got a nice job at MSFT, doing whatever. Elop isn't done yet either, wait and see. Again, outsiders who have no idea on how a company works or what is necessary to get things done. These outsiders think they know something, but they know nothing. To even rate a CEO from basically non-business people is ludricous.
What do you mean no leadership - they announced there CEO and gave there on-line on what they want to do in the next 2 years. A very good step forward and now we will wait and see. NOK is a long story that needs to be played out, like so many companies. It seems like too many people post have never managed people and departments and have no idea what it takes to run an organization. While you got stockholders or whomever for whatever reason barking out orders telling you to do this or that based on there selfish purposes, which has nothing to do with running a company. I know this is how the games works and how these boards work, but it is ridculous sometimes.
It must be difficult for Kramer to keep on performing. Alot of BS and no substance, he must hate himself or if not, it is about ego or he has no soul. I think he is "lost," but my opinion.
Sell on news. But it hardly went down, did it go down? NOK is a long story, don't worry about day to day action.
Who cares. Too much attention on this board to this penny stock. It is a loser stock on its way out. I used $53 hard earned money on this for kicks and giggles, maybe catch lightning in bottle. Not working out that way, so. You people who put out alot of money in this stock should learn how to invest, because you are NOT investing. Some of you may need other kind of mental or gambling help, imo. You think you are going to hit the big one and become rich, what a pantload.
Where will it be? Will they use like a Great Adventure type of organization to run it? Is there really a market for another theme park? It is expensive as heck to get too and then pay for hotels and park at Disney or Universal, why would Loingates theme park be more exciting and different? Does liongate have enough product to warrant a theme park? What I want is to be SOLD. Why should we be interested in this mythical theme park? I think it is a reasonable request. it is all about sales!
He does a good soft shoe dance. He makes you consider company's that you wouldn't think about normally. I think "we" don't need him, but we don't "need" most of the #$%$ that is out there. Anybody can do better than he can in the stock market. You got to invest in things that make sense to you - also, you don't have unlimited amount of resources either, so you have to be smart with your money.
Aren't we suppose to buy stock in good company's and when there is a correction or not a good quarter and the stock takes a hit, especially a big hit, you are suppose to buy it? Has that concept been lost to people? The "dummies" are the people who don't know when a sale is on and it is right in front of you. We all look for good prices on stock and hope we get it, now when you get a "good' price you are not to buy it? Doesn't make sense. You don't need the media to tell you how to invest, they have there own motivation or biases. I wonder if any of the people who write on these financial blogs or are in media, make any money? I always wondered that.
Why have dividends in the first place then? Having the stock since it was 3ish I get the dividend, which is great, but now the stock price is 50 cent lower for all non-dividend eligible people or potentially new longer term stockholders. Is the dividend a "reward" or is it meaningless? I do realize that some people or big institutions may live off of dividends, it is there income, but most of us don't live off the income and just reinvest. It seems to me that dividends are good for the very wealthy, which the stock system was set-up to help the wealthy in the first place. The old lay that lives in Old Brookville (very wealthy area of long Island) needs the income. The regular invest is basically a new phonemone. I remember my Uncle in the 1970's and 80's had a Broker who would make the trade for you, then you had to pay him $300 on one trade, depending on how much you were buying or selling. Regular people weren't doing that. So anyway, I'm not sure if dividend are either good or bad for regular investors.
