Good plan so far.
Earnings outlook for NSN is weaker than expected. HERE is a low growth cash hog, but IP has enormous upside.
Too bad they didn't close the deal in Jan / Feb as we'd be well thru $8 mark. as it is the turmoil in Ukraine and market selloff probably will prevent any meaningful price appreciation till 2nd half of the year.
long term holders will certainly be rewarded ... $9-10 will come but slower than hoped IMO
very interesting to note they specifically mention the need to maintain excess cash reserve in anticipation of a market dislocation similar to 2000 and 2008. They obviously see a stock market or economic contraction as likely.
that was a month ago... we are waiting on Korea
why keep reposting these old reports? it is well known.
We're just waiting on Korean approval of deal and unfortunately this crazy Ukraine / Russia thing to blow over, then onward and upward
If market were not in freefall id expect 8.50 close on deal getting done. But this decline is nasty and getting nastier. Fundamentals dont matter in this atmosphere. Putin is screwing us.
Whats sad is neither of our austere self serving political parties can find any candidates beyond the clinton and bush families. What a disgrace it would be to have more of either one.
I haven't seen anything from them at all in a year... it could be their internal policy is to not comment till deal is done. Could also be that because GS advised MSFT that as part of the arrangement they won't comment on the Nokia shares till its done. Whereas JPM consulted Nokia and nokia is probably quite happy to have a buy rating.
I should have heeded the Goldman message when i heard it. Sell premium at 8. Oh well.. with nokia theres been alot of left turns. Damn they move slow though
looks like you're writing a nice check to longs today. LOL. thanks in advance for the transfer of funds
would be nice to see 7.85 today... put some fear back into the trading desks. 7.60 seems to be a first hurdle. surprised we didn't leap it at the open.
Nokia could do a few things to help us here with some well timed updates this week : )
When the dow was 16,500 you were making 9.00 an hour and now you're making 7.50 an hour. Sad. Very sad
bout time HFT gets exposed. but I don't thing this week was HFT ... it was real money hitting the bid to get out of the momentum trade.
how many shares of biotechs, AMZN, YELP, TSLA, NFLX etc were owned on margin? a LOT... could get forced selling next week.
sucks this is the atmosphere in which Nokia will close this deal. starting to think $8 will be the ceiling for a lot longer than I thought... maybe August / Sept
Looks like those are reported late by exchange. Prob done regular hrs. Someone bailed on a sizable chunk at the lows in last hour of trading.
Draghi says the ECB had a robust discussion of QE during meeting... Euro stocks turn green.. this is positive for Nokia shares I believe short term. They didn't move rates, but they are underscoring that they are ready to boost asset prices.
now personally I hate QE on principle, but we all have to play in the sandbox they give us.
