The bobble head doll.
Just because the vehicle has the GM name on the produce we do not have to stand behind what we make. What a brand.
Singapore's Flextronics International Ltd is in advanced talks to buy part of the Chinese business of Alcatel-Lucent SA and the spinoff of ALU submarine unit will take place prior to the merger. These should generate some cash. I am not sure if ALU is selling any thing else off prior to the merger.
Flex also bought all the Nortel plants. They are a great outsourcer for manufacturing, like CSCO, HPQ and Dell.
As a BHP shareholder, my super fund has voted for the demerger of South32. In fact, it's difficult to see a reason not to favour the demerger, unless you are selling BHP before May 15.
Thank you one and all for pumping up the stock price yesterday. You all did a great job. I could not have done it if it were not all of you buying the stock yesterday, thank you very very much. You all did a great job.
Once again good luck.
I can not see $8.
For Alcatel ALU, +16.18% ALU, +7.88% shareholders, a potential tie-up is almost a win-win, analysts said, while Nokia NOK1V, -3.80% NOK, -4.22% stock owners could face a period of restructuring costs, scrapped dividends and diluted share prices.
Higher prices are good for the economy.
“Nokia thinks it’s worth X, and Alcatel thinks it’s worth Y,” Mike Walkley, an analyst for Canaccord Genuity Group Inc., said in a phone interview. “Nokia has a strong balance sheet, but they’re going to stick to their guns. It’s going to come down to, do they close the gap on the valuation?”
1 share of NOK for 2 shares of ALU. This will be a stock and cash transaction.
Nokia’s stock was almost 40 percent more valuable than Alcatel-Lucent’s before Tuesday, when the companies said they’re in advanced negotiations about a combination. That makes a cash-and-stock bid feasible and accretive to earnings, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
The best of all deals for NOK would be to buy ALU wireless unit, then turn and buy JNPR. I will wait and see how all this works out.
NOK buying all of ALU will be a very hard deal to get the French government to approve. I would like it if NOK just bought all of ALU. But NOK buying the wireless unit of ALU will be the easiest deal to get approval. If NOK buys just the wireless unit I will sell the ALU and buy NOK.
Nokia Oyj (NOK1V.HE) is in talks to buy smaller telecom equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent (ALUA.PA), a deal that would combine the industry's two weakest players, but could pose challenges in cutting costs and overcoming political opposition.
Stock went from $4.12 to $4.06 on the news.
