    Time value premium is horrible and we have 4 months to go! I am holding onto my $3.50 calls because they were dirt cheap and I wouldn't be able to replace them with anything reasonably close to the pennies I spent. Although I have gotten rid of all my 2014 options yesterday. I just believe we need to wait until 2015 and the Samsung arbitration to start before Nokia goes goes past $8.62 again. Then $12 will be easy.

    Why sell those calls guy? Seems you could have leveraged the money for a few months more....

    Qualcomm’s royalty rates (complete license or single- mode licenses) suggest the royalty rate could be well above 1% as well. In short, we believe our “1%” scenario is conservative suggesting further upside potential not captured in our SOP analysis.

    For every 1% more Nokia can get, I see a $4 a share increase in price. I believe Nokia will get closer to a 3% rate making my 2017 PT $20. Though new developments in new tech could occur, which would make the PT much higher

    It's obvious in this case Nokia is NOT a patent troll. Looking at it from Samsung's view point, they believe they shouldn't have to pay these licenses fees to Nokia because it's too much money and technology of this sort of thing should be free. Well Nokia has spent Billions of Euros over years and years to create and bring this technology to the masses. They have struggled in recent years because people are now buying phones from other manufacturers who have "used" Nokia technology many times for free. This is not a fair practice by any means. For one company to create while others steal is not right. This has occurred for to long and almost bankrupted a company that brought so much to the world.

    It's time to pay your fair share.

    Fantastic blimpsy. Nokia all the way.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • A judge on Wednesday rejected a bid by Apple to ban US sales of rival Samsung smartphones targeted in a recent $2 billion patent trial in Silicon Valley. The decision was seen as a setback for Apple in its long-running battle with Samsung, but a win for Nokia who is seeking new licensing rates from Samsung.

  • Ford and Nokia research a smarter and more personalized driving experience

    Chicago, IL, USA - Nokia announced that Ford's research organization will use the Nokia Location Platform to advance innovation for smart and connected vehicles, as demonstrated by the Ford EVOS concept car.

    Ford selected the Nokia Location Platform to leverage Nokia's high-quality global location content, including the industry leading NAVTEQ Map, as well as scaleable cloud services and APIs. This complete solution offers a fast, easy and cost-effective path to create innovative and differentiated location products.

    The Ford EVOS concept car showcases a future in which cloud services go beyond Internet access and traffic-enabled routing. For example, Ford's concept car actually "learns" driver behavior to control, improve upon and personalize vehicle performance. Another area of Ford's research is designed to optimize hybrid powertrain efficiency: the Nokia Location Platform could automatically regulate a car's powertrain as it travels through established or driver-specified "Green Zones".

    "We are committed to providing compelling customized services to the automotive sector and customers like Ford," said Christof Hellmis, Vice President Map Platform in Nokia's Location & Commerce unit. "We have consistently focused on innovation around location and navigation in the car. This commitment enabled us to provide a global platform service which could truly enhance the customer and user experience. It's exciting to see the Nokia Location Platform as an integral part of Ford's mission to revolutionize the connected car."

    It's apparent that you don't know what's going on with Nokia. Before you respond to someone you should know the facts. Your a typical reason why conversations don't go anywhere on the MB. When someone answers a question based on fact, you've gone and sabotaged the answer by bringing up irrelevant things. So next time if your not informed enough, don't respond and especially in a negating way.

    Words of advice which have been stated over and over again.......LISTEN TO SURI'S SPEECH. That way you'll know better next time.

    Kudos to you for the kind gesture. I know we've had our differences on calling out an $8 target price in the past, but the bigger picture is we all know Nokia is a great company to own. I admit I thought Nokia might sell Here but a couple of weeks ago I listened again to Suri's address and it's obvious Here won't sell. Too many patents tied up in the tech.

    This was a gamble bet which I make on occasion. Also, this was not my best % return in Nokia. I've had better. If you look back in the message boards to JAN 8,9-2013, you'll find my biggest % gain which subsequently disgraced MOMO big time. But that was back when I was only buying 500 or so ;) options at a time.

    People, Nokia is the real deal. Just load up the shares. So why have all the selling rumors of HERE disappeared ;) ;)

    Yes, two very different directions. I wouldn't have minded if they came out with a watch or other devices, but that would have eliminated the efficiency they have now to obtain royalties on IP. I would rather have them collect royalties and become a Qualcomm type. This is already in the works.

    Like Suri stated, Nokia needs to do it now before it's too late.

    Real quick I'll tell you consumer as used in recent articles means consumer products, as in GPS mapping devices or location based products of whatever you can imagine, (watches?, monitors, in dash navigation....)

    Halbherr wanted to create these products, while Suri wants to license the technology and let others create the products while Nokia sits back and collects royalties.

    PATENTS PATENTS PATENTS. Royalties are going to be much higher than 650 million a year and not just 1.2 billion as some have raised their outlooks to, but I think a lot more as new products that use Nokia tech come to market. Don't forget Asian companies will have to pay up.

    Let's just say I wish it was in an IRA.

    Time value is the hardest thing when dealing with options. If you can't risk the money to pay the premiums in options don't do it. I've been lucky to take big option gambles on Nokia and have come out ahead many times. That's the only reason I gamble like that. Plus what I saw in the worldwide patent scene made me take the risk this time.

    You can't go wrong with Long-term shareholding in Nokia though.

    A little heads up to your broker that your exercising before the markets close goes a long way. I assume margin for one day will cost me less than $500. I sold all the options that were exercised, (stock), today and for a little bonus. I've never been that overloaded. The funny thing is the last year I've been saying that quite often. All due to Nokia. Luck, timing, and a pinch of skill. Nokia is going to make a lot of people rich.

    Don't worry though I still hold shares because Nokia is on the verge of becoming much bigger.

    My August 22, 2014 $8 calls ended deep in the money. If you want, you can make fun of me since 40% of them will have to be bought on margin come Monday, Sir.

    This will be my last response to such likes as you.

    Since announcing Halbheer is leaving the company, nothing has changed on how Suri said he plans on running the company back in April.

    This coming from a guy that thinks August 2022 options exist. I believe a coherent argument is deserved to everyone here from now on. PLS.

    My comment was based on objective facts coming from Suri who holds an excellent track record.

  • jeffreber44 jeffreber44 Aug 23, 2014 3:25 PM Flag

    Suri wouldn't rule out the consumer end again in the future, but right now he wants to focus on the IP revenue from technology. This technology he is referring to includes Here tech, the type that is in 4 out of 5 cars using automotive services. By the way he wants to move on this fast.
