    I've noticed the correlation between Paris Exchange and NYSE each day. Everyday Paris Exchange is doing fine until the pre-market opening of NYSE (08:00 - 09:30) and then ALU takes a dive in Paris. This tells me NYSE is filled with speculative traders that are dragging down ALU to oblivion. So, any fundamentals of ALU that the pumpers are boasting here does not really apply in the world of speculative trading. The Wall Street is an unforgiving animal.

    If you are a gambler then you should pick NG given that they haven't produce an ounce of gold since 2009 and yet they strive on perpetual speculation.

    ALU is shrinking at an alarming rate

    Discarding assets while expecting revenue to remain the same would require enorrnous increases in sales with their remaining assets and that is not going to happen given the fierce competitions in the market place. ALU's bookvalue will shrink accordingly as key assets are being disposed which means future share price will reflect its shrinking bookvalue.

    Nokia to prowl again to make acquisitions

    I don't know what you've been smoking but NOK ain't going to buy ALU. Besides, it would be stupid and suicidal for ALU to sell its Wireless Unit because what's left after that? ALU will only have its router hardware and a small software business unit in transport (SDN). ALU might as well close shop when it gets to that point because there is no way they will be able to generate even half the revenue of today.

    There is no conspiracy or manipulation here. Haven't you noticed the volume has been drying up ever since ALU joining CAC 40? The market is pricing ALU to exactly what it's worth, by the day.

    This is a major blow to ALU Wireless business unit. Ericsson managing Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint wireless network would almost assure Ericsson to become the sole supplier of LTE equipment to these tier-1 carriers. This means ALU will lose out 40% of its global wireless revenues deriving from US carriers going forward and there goes the Shift Plan. All we need now is for the French union to demand more raises, benefits, and a longer lunch break.

  • You can always tell when a company is "NOT" doing well when there's nothing being reported by financial news outlets. All you have to look at is in the Headlines of Yahoo Message board where the Headlines section is showing no activity other than the occasional self-serving SeekingAlpha article. If you look at Headlines on other message boards such as ERIC, NOK, JNPR, CIEN, CSCO there's always some news worthy events by Reuter, Bloomberg, Marketwatch, Zacks, etc. and yet ALU has been very quiet because there's nothing worth reporting.

    Has anyone noticed that ALU has not reported its progress or the status of the Shift Plan (in details) at all? I wonder why.

    ALU 52 Week Price Performance = 101%

    The next 30 days will be the worst nightmare for ALU baggies. As you may have noticed the stock has been drifting downward at a much faster rate recently as it approaches the dreadful earning season at the end of July. You know WS is not in a charitable mood these days. The smart thing to do is to GET out now before your hard-earned saving gets fizzled away. You should only consider coming back in after $3.20 and that's a generous estimate.

    ALU's stagnant stock price

    by stockryder1 Jun 30, 2014 6:12 AM
    geegaboo geegaboo Jun 30, 2014 9:26 AM Flag

    I have been saying back in Jan-Feb of this year that Q4 was going to be decent because Q4 has always been the best earning season for ALU. So the smart investors got in just before that and start selling right after Q4.

    Investors also know that traditionally Q1 and Q2 are the worst earning season because it's the nature of the telecom industry where capital needs to be spent upfront (Q1 and Q2) before getting paid partially in Q3 and fully in Q4. You would be wise "NOT" to listen to these unethical pumpers here because they are only interested in protecting their #$%$ at the expense of you because it's too late for them to dodge the earning bullet.

    "You know, things like management, balance sheet, profits, growth, marketing, public relations, advertising, quality, R&D. Then, and only then, when the fundamentals are right, the shareholders concerns should be addressed. "

    Based on the above list of considerations you consider shareholders should be the last in your list. Then, what is stopping management from diluting the clap out of shareholders by issuing "10 BILLION" new shares at $1/share to beef up the balance sheet while reducing shareholder value into pennies?

    What are moronic overcooked goose you are!

    "This is proof Alcatel-Lucent's cash flow influx is improving."

    This proves that Sam is a shyster and an idiot. Where do you think the money came from, Sammy Boy? Yup, that's right from you idiots' shareholders?

    ""Alcatel Offers $1.4 Billion Convertible Bonds to Repay Debt
    (Jun 2, 2014)

    Alcatel-Lucent SA (ALU) is offering about 1 billion euros ($1.4 billion) in bonds that can be exchanged for its stock, to repay debt taken on last year when the network-equipment vendor struggled to survive."

    The recent $1.4B was to finance the earlier $1.75B debt which was taken out as part of the 2013 Senior Secured Credit Facilities and that was meant to pay the existing debts in 2013 and for share buy backs.

    The proliferation of lies (twisting and spinning the truth) that come out of this board is simply astonishing.

    424,757,000 euros of debt cleaning up by repurchase

    Repatriating patents from GS though buybacks of Euro 424,757,000, Really?

    As usual, I've noticed WB you are clueless and yet you would brazenly fabricate information to suit your needs without facts just to mislead gullible investors.

    The "fact" is, the 424,757,000 came from the 2010 Senior notes which happens to be way before the GS loan that was secured with patents by ALU in early 2013. WB, you are either delusional or perhaps just a brazen little liar with self-serving.

    "Senior Notes 8.50% - € 425 M (2) (8) due January 2016
    Euro500M (Euro 75M) -changes during 2013),
    Euro 425M outstanding as of Dec 31, 2013"

    "Paris, November 25, 2010
    Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced the terms of its new €500M Senior Notes due 15 January 2016 (the “Senior Notes”) with an 8.5% coupon and proceeds of €487.3M. The proceeds will be applied to partially refinance the 4.75% convertible/exchangeable bonds due on 1 January 2011, of which €818M in principal amount remains outstanding. "

    Sprint Promises 180Mbit/s 'Peaks' in 2015

    by sam.deanj Jun 22, 2014 1:37 AM
    geegaboo geegaboo Jun 22, 2014 10:53 AM Flag

    The reality remains that this (180 mb/s) is just a sales pitch from Sprint. An LTE technology, even with its higher spectral efficiency than its predecessor (3G), can only deliver up to 5 bits/hz on FDD and at much lower of 3 bits/hz on a TDD. This means the aggregated channels under Carrier Aggregation (LTE-A) can only have a theoretical 300 mbits/sec output limitation at 120 mhz of combined spectrum on the "last-mile" for a "single user even at the best modulation of 160 QAM.

    A share network such as LTE where Sprint is expecting thousands of logged on users and at any one point in time with hundreds of active traffic sharing that 300 mb/s pipe will probably be able to deliver at most 10-15 mb/s on its average network loads. The cell tower can have its 8T8R but won't do any good if the customer device has a limitation of 2X2 MIMO. Remember, antenna on a mobile device is the biggest power consumption on the battery, therefore anything greater that 2X2 MIMO will be a device killer.

    Like I say, this is just a pipe-dream or a clever sales pitch.

    AT&T acquiring DirecTV is actually very positive for ALU. AT&T plans to expand its broadband networks into rurals and to 11 large metropolitan cities targeting gigabit bandwidth with fiber and copper presumably with ALU G-Fast. G-fast technology is more cost efficient for carriers because it utilizes local loops (fiber distribution points) to customer premise effectively replacing U-verse that requires a fair amount of distance from DSLAM.

    The AT&T's expansion will utilize LTE technology wherever possible and that's including satellite infrastructure (think DTV). All these activities will target over 3 million new additional customers in the next two years. AT&T has stated that the merger of DTV will not take away any existing capex that has already been committed.

    AT&T will actually incur a substantially reduction with its carriage fees with providers due to the shear volume it will have and plans to use the saving to pay for the acquisition itself. Most certainly ALU will benefit more than its rivals since ALU does have the right combination of platform in providing what AT&T would need with this expansion. ALU should start to see consistent positive cashflow by Q3 and going forward. The share price should also start to climb much higher in late August and continue to do so into 2015.

    I have seen such a behaviour many times before where investors think that they have found a stock that they consider a once in a life time opportunity ($1.40) and absolutely refuse to sell until all of their profits eventually fizzled away. Some make stupid excuses such as for tax reason, for they rather pay 0 tax on zero gain than few percentages on large gains. These so-called investors are unsophisticated and mainly old timers and were probably the victims of the 2008 market crash. They failed to recognize that the market is fluid and merciless since the aftermath of 2008. Today's market is all about victims and predators (tactical investor exploiting market momentum and timing) and the only thing victims get in the end is resentment.

    "But investing is a long game, get in build a base and wait."

    That's an old mentality. Today's investment is all about momentum which means you ride the waves. It has little to do with the company you've invested in but more to do with timing. If you stay while others are getting out means that they are stealing "your capital" right before your eyes. If you are stupid enough not to sell then you deserve what you get.
