10. Suri's stated intention to resurrect the glory of the Nokia Brand. Profit opportunity in and of itself, halo effect on non-consumer businesses.
Instead of continuing to say you don'tknow where I found it -- why dont you go to the naz site. You know the address. Double click quotes and give it a minute. Then put in NOK1V. YOu will see the day for Nokia in Helsinki at 6.5150 +0.32 +5.17%. Any reader of this board can do the same for the next 12 hours or so until Helsinki re-opens. It's not a matter of whether the one and only Naz site is saying this -- right now - It's a matter of why. By the way-- the 6.5150 +0.32 +5.17% is a copy and paste directly from the NOK1v page. The only things I changed were -- I converted the green arrows into plus signs. You seem to be here 24/7, you responded instantly, so what happens when yo ugo to NAZ and put in NOK1V?
I tried twice to answer this morning but my posts were blocked -- now, I realize, because i used the name of the nazzy site. But if you go to it -- now -- at 2:42 pm EDT and look at the close in Helsinki, it was 6.5150 +0.32 +5.17%. -- NOK in Helsinki was up all day and was up 6% this morning when I wrote the original post, the site reported.
I see that the conversion -- Helsinki price expressed in Euro's and the US ADR's in dollars looks right. But can anyone explain why NOK (NOK1V) closed up 5.1% in Helsinki today and it's down in the US, with no major change in the EUR/DOL rate? Did not mean to mislead this morning. I reported accurately what I found, and it's still there right now. See for yourself.
Gotta admit, though -- I just bought a Cree soft white 60W that uses 11W, the one with the slatted front shaped exactly like an incandescent. This is one nice bulb. And now a year later, significant reduction of energy use in my home associated with lighting. Always liked the product, its presentation and how it works (the consumer stuff). But it's hard to achieve the growth rates that Street financing require - consistently, without some type of differentiation that really blows the doors off in terms of consumer value. And then a marketing campaign is needed that drives it home in a way that captures mass attention and creates longlasting trade and consumer bonds.
In golf terms, I guess it needs to be an Eagle. Cree has so much cool stuff but it's become par. A year later, I don't feel any differently, including really liking the products. I was saying these things at 70.
U talkin to me? maybe you misread my post from a year ago that you just drug up. It was prescient. the Category was commoditizing in front of my eyes and I was just holding up a mirror. Is there something wrong with you?
And what about IRA accounts? I have some NOK in there too and it's a tax deferred account, so they withhold anyway? Not familiar with the dividend world but will be increasingly now cause no spring chicken. Dividends + appreciation in the right, evolving mix is the ticket for many.
Then it's not a bad deal after all. The taxes are taken out up front, withheld like this right from the brokerage account, I guess? No more than this approximate 15% due?
But what about the accelerating, orders of magnitude increase in data transmission? Will solutions for Carriers' meeting and managing these new capacity requirements shift some of the power back to the network providers?
Being a layperson to the Industry, looking in, this would seem reasonable to me.
I know these have probably been covered, and I do recall seeing some discussion a while back about the dividend being watered down by the foreign taxes and possibly fees.
But still -- what is this I see --
3 transactions total on the ETrade account
- the net dividend (a deposit into my account)
- something that says it's the dividend, but is negative (a deduction) and about 12.7% of the total
- something that says it's a fee, about 2.75% of the total
So it looks like about 15% of the total dividend got lopped off, what he hey his that
I believe you misinterpreted the post. NOK's price to sales is very low for the sectors its competing in.
(Resulting) trade deficit
Rate Hike Delay versus expectations
Alu Merger/Acquisition or whatever it is
GDP Falloff (driven, I believe, by high dollar and weather)
And then, all capped off by a weak quarter -
I think prospects are very, very bright if they execute, dont' get bogged down by the French (a tall order) and with a little luck on the arbitration side. Then, how much cash for HERE, or the wildcard, do they keep it.
Everyone kept talking about the mobile tsunami - and it came/didn't disappoint. Mobile has been the catalyst that has evolved consumers from an alalog to a digital life.
Isn't the internet of everything a tsunami that is already rolling, and isn't NOK ALU up front? Are we talking about a growth company here, and accordingly, a different, better, higher multiple? Just asking.
Will you look at that PR?
Someone wrote yesterday or the day before, "we'll see 7's today."
That was depressing since my average cost is $8. I didn't think we'd be down here, at this time, but that was pre-ALU, pre the HERE situation, which is really extraordinary.
Also, ALU's performance and outlook this morning, Management's comments and support of the deal in its current form, so many doubts got put to bed -- It's a great day today and being reflected in the path back up, notwhithstanding all of the other factors that drive the price of the ADR's.
I heard the Chairman's comments -- that it is entirely possible that HERE will not be sold. Is this a negotiating ploy, are might they really be considering this? Would be a very exciting component of the business, add a lot of sizzle.
Not to mention the upgrades, European Market doing great today, oversold condition, dividend drop yesterday -- and more. Seems so logical that stock would fly today, hindsight is so wonderful.
Looks good. HERE pending bidding war - and who/why is doing more for NOK PR than all recent efforts combined.
I don't disagree with you. This quarter, however, wasn't the Network profitablity low, something like 3% margin vs. a much higher analyst estimate, driven by an unfavorable mix? That's a short term issue, is my point, whereas the longer term picture looks very strong. NOK's scale/share now, along with the complementary, synergistic ALU Portfolio seems to be very attractive strategically. Not to mention the cash position post HERE sale, if that's still on the table.
