Yeah. Too bad, almost seems like we wasted a year on NOK. 2013 was an exciting year, this year a dud. Hey, we always have next year. Onward and upward.
I agree, geez how much pumping can some people do after a flat stock year? I'm reviewing my year and no pumping is helping my pocketbook. Let's be hopefully, SURE, but let's see our pocketbooks get full again.
Fr3nchy, this alias is an expert AND also we are RESPONSIBLE for OUR own trades, that's good. I feel so guilty - Son you need to lose weight, but it's not my business, it's your life, you do what you want to do. Have some chicken soup.
What's the "likely?" Why wouldn't you not want to wear a computer on your wrist, is my question? I wear a watch everyday for the last 40 yrs, what's the difference. What is a personal mesh/personal cloud, never heard of that.
I'm not in NOK for royalitiies or license, because it is very difficult to quanitfy. American Football reference: It is like having a very good college football player, but you don't know how he will play in the Pros. Potential is there, but all it is potential. I want to focus on the REAL things, not on maybes.
You got to take profits Farhan along the way. Do the successful investors tell us if they take profits, I bet they do, it is only good business. These most successful investors keep a core holding, but they do take profits. Let's say I have 10K of NOKIA at $3.50 and it hits $6, you mean the most successful investors won't take some off the plate and lock in profits, but still keep a core holding?
Strong Buy - yeah. Think about, the stock was flat last year, eventhough NOK has alot of good news. This stock and many others are getting hit the beginning of this year. So you combine a flat 2014 to this pullback makes a Strong Buy. If you got the money you buy here (no pun), that's is what you are suppose to do, but I do not have any money nor will I play the option game. So you hold, which many of us "longs" will do until the market and NOK stock turns around like it always does, you just got to wait. Remember - when NOK stock fortunes change, take profits - i think I am writing this to remind myself to do that. I hope everyone makes money this year, just be smart, don't be greedy and take profits (I repeated myself).
I think the sellers are sleepy, they've worked so hard, maybe give the buyers a chance now. I feel bad for the buyers, don't you?
There will always be competition and we should welcome it. Competition motivates and inspires.
Bring them on! But I do like you bringing in the "fear factor," good move in a post.
I am sitting in my warm office gazing at a old picture of a man walking in a snow covered forest, while being disturbed rather regularly by my pleasant co-workers on work issues of the day. And I am dreaming of being in Willoboughby enjoying the warm weather on the 4th of July. No Push Push Push! Maybe I'll go fishing too and take a swim in the lake. You are all welcomed to join me in my dream.
Mewag, what is happening is not a Nokia problem, but a European problem. Nokia is being dragged down by Europe's weakness and money is flowing to the USA, as it should, come to think of it. Now how long will this last, don't know. I am debating on whether I should hold NOK or take some off the plate and buy American. Nokia is a great long term up and coming company, but I also need to make money. Maybe keep a solid core, not sure what I want to do, anyone out there with reasonable cogent advise?
Again, its not Nokia or its mgmt. Nokia is real cheap, which is a saving grace longer term. The more it goes down, the better it looks - Now if there were structural problems with NOK an investor would get real nervous, but that is not the case. But we all still need to make money, right? With that in mind, sell some NOK and invest in American companies stocks, I'm still wrestling with that.
I'm repeating myself as well Fr3nchy.
It seems like your posts have gotten a little more serious, what changed?
