I know you have your own agenda which is irrelevant to my decision making. These posting are tedious.
How can anyone listen to strangers, especially to your constant negative take on Nokia. Whatever motivates you, good for you. Goodbye.
Hey French, keep posting as much as you want. You aren't bothering me.
How did he do on the last couple of quarters? How about the deal with China and other contracts worldwide? If you are basing his job performance on current stock price is that his fault - does he buy and sell stock? I'm not trying to defend him, but can we be reasonable? We all thought by now NOK would be over $10, but it is not, disappointing, yes, but what is Suri suppose to do about it? Has hasn't been in the job for a year yet, the stock went from $1.80 in October 2012 under Elop and now in 2 1/2 yrs it is $7.73, pretty good for a company that was completely written off. We all want immediate gratification, but in reality it doesn't work that way. Nokia is a long term investment, as I see it.
All I know is they need to get it done and the Indian gov't needs to stop with their hands out.
If I let you know my other alias it wouldn't be fun anymore, but I hardly ever use it. Planetsaggs, I never saw this particular alias before, but good luck to you - use it wisely. Saggsplanet seems funnier.
When I first saw your subject, I thought you meant out of the closet. Now I see you meant something else. Good luck to you.
You are right. Why is this alias waste valuable posting space?
shhhh, relax. Have you ever ran a international multi-billion dollar company and was "given" as part of the deal with one of the biggest international company's in the world (Microsoft) billion's of dollars? I would never tell Nokia or any company how to spend its money because what the heck do it know really? I won't make-believe like so many on these boards do (including Analysts/Experts) that they know how to run a company and furthermore, a company of this size and scope. Stay out of it and don't worry. Patience is the way to go.
Maybe so, but NOK is a great company. Jumping in and out of the ship is also tedious and most likely you lose more money. Now if there was something wrong with Nokia, that's another story, but there isn't. If you sell or don't buy in, you will kick yourself in the medium to long term and that is difficult to deal with and then you blame yourself that you didn't have any patience, then who is the schmuck?
wbush you are not thinking. It has been flat for over a year, but just before that the stock jumped alot, so let's be fair. You can't compare 10 yrs ago with the current incarnation of Nokia - again let's be fair. People are impatience with its stock, understandably, but as I posted before, this is a long term investment with a company that recently got turned around. If you want immediate gratification, you need to go some place else, and where that is I do not know.
These upgrades or downgrades are meaningless, it is the bottomline that counts. If Nokia is growing and having good earnings, that's the most important and someday Nokia's stock will reflect in its stock price.
Patience is the mantra and has been. A great level to buy, but who has the money to buy unless you are the institutuions.
Nokia stock should be up more than it is now you would think.
Enough nysexx. You made your point and good luck, let's move and enjoy that NOK is up. It is higher than it has been in 6 months, I'm enjoying it, will we rinse and repeat, who the heck knows. This is a long investment story anyway, move on.
I do feel your frustration, but again this is a long game and things tend to balance out over time. I predicted it would go down 2% today - I hate prediction, but that is out of frustration than anything else.
I remember that last year, so i bought at 94 and not looked back since then - now up close to 40%.
