To take a guess at earnings..
I'm asking because, uhhh... the recent consensus .32 and .39 (FY '14 and FY'15, respectively) just quietly increased (again) to .33 and .40.
This, while the pps is dropping, exactly tracking both the NAZ (as the case may have it) and Europe. Another good divergence.
I turned that dinghy around today and snapped up some. Unfortunately, earlier today at 13.73, but a small position. I saw the downgrade, but also, that the PT was reduced only to 22. At 13 something, can reach for that falling knife, just a little. Now let's see what the stink is all about and whether it warranted this degree of slide.
The dinghy that's now a spec on the horizon. Moving toward sub-14, down 5% today on a market bounce day. What's going on??
Appreciate the input. No upside to tonning on. Problem is, the aliases -- fr3nchmodel, zuikoll, and several others (most likely the same individual) whatever -- these individuals immediately post on top of any substantive message in order to disrupt the flow of productive conversation. So putting them on ignore doesn't do it. Every poster here has a right to participate in a message board about the stock. the Fr3nch model alias has created a persona that ultimately resorts to sxual insults. I'm sure posts will materialize that bring this out, but in the meantime, let's hope Nokia prevails through this downturn, despite the banter of these moroons, paid disruptors, etc.
I guess it's the zutkoll alias, pontificating, condescending, interfering always in any thread to disrupt the conversation, that is the most challenging. A lot of good discussion gets scuttled here in ways that are strikingly similar to professional efforts on other boards to scuttle any momentum on thoughts that are raised -- although negative sentiment about the stock doesn't seem to drive the same response. Funny how, no posts for hours, one goes up with something substantive, and all of the sudden, the train and football games get going.
And then one has the theme (mostly from the zutkoll alias) about others doing the same thing -- also a classic tactic to confuse, clog and bamboozle.
If friendly banter, 99% of it is OT and should be taken somewhere else. It's abusive/inconsiderate to the many others who are trying to talk about Nokia. Kinda like Red blabbing in Andy's ear so loud, so often, that he can't dig his tunnel.
So Ya, we see that - moroons like this, what can one say, other than, c'est la vie!
Been on Yahoo many years. Never saw that. Also, how come all the banter here - you and that has nothing to do with Nokia --
And what was that stuff the other night about the "Zulu's" are out? What's the Zulu reference?
Euro popped versus the dollar, I should have said. Looks like the sudden divergence is being driven by the dollar. It just dropped like stone right after the market closed. What's up
and to that extent, overdone, even versus the NAZ?
What to you mean, planetnokia? Why is this written in reply to my post? BR? THEY? Please explain.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered Russian troops to withdraw to their permanent bases after military exercises in Rostov region near the border with Ukraine, Russian news agencies reported late on Saturday, citing Kremlin spokesman.
The troops pullout came before an expected meeting between Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko in Milan next week.
The Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that the Russian president had met his defense minister, Sergei Shoigu.
"The minister had reported to the Supreme Commander about the completion of summer period of training on shooting ranges of the southern military district," Peskov said according to RIA Novosti news agency.
"After the report, Putin ordered to launch the return of the troops to their permanent bases... In total, these are 17,600 military servicemen who were trained on the shooting ranges of Rostov region in summer," Peskov said.
Relations between Moscow and the NATO alliance are at a post-Cold War low over Russia's actions in Ukraine, where it annexed the Crimean peninsula in March and has been supporting pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
A month ago, NATO said Russia had several thousand combat troops and hundreds of tanks and armored vehicles in eastern Ukraine supporting pro-Russian separatists fighting the Ukrainian army.
Russia denies the charges but says it has a right to defend the interests of the region's Russian-speaking majority.
The alliance said in the end of last month it had observed a significant pullback of Russian conventional forces from inside Ukraine since an uneasy ceasefire began on Sept. 5.
The Kremlin has said Putin and Poroshenko may hold talks on the sidelines of a summit of Asian and European leaders in Milan on Oct. 16-17.

Is it a given that a consumer focus is the best course at this stage of the Brand's life cycle? Especially after the previous mis-step? One must acknowledge the ubiquity and exclusivity of HERE's Automotive OEM application, as a "consumer sampling opportunity," if you will. The awareness generated by such a strategy, not to mention the "technology halo" on the Brand in this exclusive context could be the foundation of a monster consumer intro. The dominance of Automotive is of great value in many ways.
Marketing Departments are most often driven by the strategies and budgets that reflect the vision of Senior Management.
Just looked at CSCO, ALU, JNPR, ERIC - all down significantly. Nokia up half a percent and is maintaining. Nice.
"Nokia Corporation (ADR) traders are buying to long-term open call options..."
Option bulls are circling Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) this morning, as traders hope Microsoft Corporation's (NASDAQ:MSFT) royalties-related news bodes well for the Finnish phone maker. In early action, NOK calls are trading at twice the typical intraday pace, and have outnumbered NOK puts by a margin of roughly 3-to-1.
Most active by a mile is the stock's April 9 call, where more than 1,500 contracts have traded at a volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of $0.57. Nearly all of the calls changed hands on the ask side, and implied volatility is edging higher at the strike, hinting at newly bought bullish bets.
By purchasing the calls to open, the buyers expect NOK -- currently 2.8% higher at $8.53 -- to muscle atop $9.57 (strike plus VWAP) by April options expiration. This breakeven mark represents territory not charted since February 2011. Gains are theoretically unlimited north of here, while the buyers' maximum risk is the initial premium paid for the calls, should NOK remain south of the strike through the option's lifetime.
Because it's over the Nokia acquisition. Ballmer shoved it down the throat of the Company and Gates tried to squelch it with the board. It was a horrible deal. Ballmer told them, "take it or I leave." Then he left anyway.
Why relevant to Nokia? Follow me please -- and please recall a post from earlier today.
In that post, I recognized a paradigm that many are stuck in with regard to Nokia. I mentioned the 22% forecast increase in earnings in 2015 and how HERE, Networks and Technology are nothing like the old company that was saddled and defined by handsets.
That Division completely screwed with Nokia, to the core. The value that's being unlocked, and the marketplace progress that has already been achieved takes this company well beyond the revenues and earnings that are being communicated, even for 2015. There are snippets of information all over the place that are pointing to the same thing!!. With this sale (of what became a horrible business) comes the unleashing of the value Nokia can generate. There is a divergence, in my view, between the potential here and the perception, one that is mired in the old company and the old financials.
I believe some, much of this is going to become very clear upon this earnings report. That's the basis for my long position.
Forbes article just hit Yahoo - very positive. Nice activity on this, the Nokia PR people got busy on this one and it's good to see.
