BAD SENSE OF HUMOR, IS NO HUMOR AT ALL.
I thought that you were better than that!
Nothing on earth should get you to this point, nothing!
Please do some research before you chant songs full of accolades on a person - -
He got Nokia to near extinction, near bankruptcy,
Many have said that he fell short as a CEO, others have said that he was a Microsoft Trojan Horse inside Nokia.
I won’t do the research for you!
Don’t worry, there will be no way that he will ever be the CEO of Microsoft if it’s up to Bill Gates!
You can bank on that!
This is a real problem. If the indians dont settle - the plant in india will not go to ms, and nokia will have to operate it as a subcontractor.
you havent seen headaches such as this and all the writeoffs that may come about - - research this a bit!
As I said - - - Very Predictable
Pre-opening - - Pre-Market : 7.97 Up 0.17 (2.18%) 7:39AM EST - Nasdaq Real Time Price
Where do you think that it will close today?
Up before the fact - Down after the fact!
People on this board were too bullish - which meant that they were going to be wrong!
So - there is nothing new - - we are wiping out all the weak hands!
The bull run will continue - - -
End of year - - - above $9 - - - - -
Microsoft swallows Nokia with the help of the The Prodigal Son -

“Nokia: face-off spot
Last updated: November 18, 2013 5:17 pm
Playing with Microsoft has resulted in an ugly game
Helsinki’s Ice Hall is the home arena of a Finnish ice-hockey team and so well used to ferocious clashes. Which makes it a brave choice as the site for Tuesday’s meeting of investors in Nokia. They are being asked to bless the €3.8bn sale of its lossmaking handset unit to Microsoft, a deal announced two months ago but the focus of much subsequent controversy. Executives can expect to end the day with a few bruises.
There are certainly some valuation questions that the shareholders, likely to show up in their thousands, will want to ask. For a start, there is the matter of how an industry leader in a growth business such as mobile telephony ended up in such a parlous state. More specifically, Nokia investors might want to know why €3.8bn is the right price for the devices unit – or, for that matter, €1.6bn for a related patent licence deal between the Finnish group and the US software giant. Proxy documents were bland almost to the point of silence on this score, stating only that directors conducted an extensive evaluation, with a brief adviser fairness opinion attached.
To these issues can be added the large pay-off – €19m as of September – to Nokia’s former boss Stephen Elop. Thanks to a Nokia waiver, he will return to Microsoft and profit handsomely – unlike shareholders, who have seen their shares fall by one-fifth since his arrival at Nokia’s helm. And even those investors who are more focused on Nokia’s future might have a few queries. Analysts are still trying to assess the value of the patent portfolio, while the extent to which spare cash will go back to shareholders has yet to be detailed.
For all that, it would be a big surprise if the devices deal did not proceed. Provisions in the agreement always made it unlikely that other bidders would emerge and the stock market is largely pricing the deal in. Tuesday should blow a final whistle – but it has been an ugly game. “
I thought that you were brighter than that - -
Your statement makes no sense - -
You are making a category mistake - -
'A-Holes posting here' has nothing to do with 'going short'.
Nokia is still on a riproaring bull run based on Technical Analysis.
DO WHATEVER YOU WANT!
Random activity is trash work!
OK - Best - like the way you look at trading!
What good thing are you looking at -
Fully technical -
This will wash out all the weak hands and those who got in at $1.75 to 4 -
Will end year at $9+
