Really Yahoo, one can not refer to Jack Ma as a crook (another word for thief in case they censor it again) on your PC board??? Seriously??? The man is a weasel and before long Alibaba and China itself will dive.
Why didn't Ballmer (or AAPL with just its lunch money) buy YHOO for just about $30B (approx. $25/sh) two years ago when YHOO traded at just $16 for years and still owned 43% (now just 23%) of Alibaba??? Ma is a #$%$ who stole Alipay and made a fool of Bartz and Jerry Yang at the cost of YHOO holders.
I have been to Singapore about 7 times and I always felt it was only worth about a day and then move on. Everything is too packaged, clean, organized and boring. Sentosa is certainly no Disneyworld, and I don't like Disneyworld (except great for kids) either.
....YHOO (and stole Alipay) and Yang was a pushover and hereally made out big while screwing his own shareholders in YHOO (thanks for hiring Bartz and Thompson and announcing at $16 that YHOO was NOT for sale) but how stupid was MSFT (or AAPL) not to just takeout YHOO for $25 when it was trading at $16 for years???
You short clowns can not lie enough to send NOK down. $10 by EOY if not more. (unless market crash and then NOK will hold up much better than 95% of market).
Selling shares is NOT going short. We knew Loeb sold his shares at a big profit, but going short is an entirely different matter. Any proof of that guy's claim that Loeb went short?
...Loeb should be much smarter than that. But then he did sell out of YHOO at $16 just two years ago when they still owned 43% of BABA. Again, you should provide some proof, or a link, to that claim or admit you are just a lying clown.
...investment philosophy. Very tired of these "big" 19 cent moves up only to give back more than half of it right away. How about being placed on Goldman's compelling buy list, (or whatever they call it)? I need over $10 by EOY!
....MSFT, etc. are all way up. Way too many shares outstanding and too feckless and timid a management team and tiny share buy back program. We have given up most of yesterdays weak gain. NOK should be well over $10 by now. Too many complacent NOK shareholders. Where is Carl Icahn when you need him?
.... a second (why not five in a row?) nice up day. Again, just too many shares out and too weak a buy back program.
Oh, did he raise it to $4?
Too bad it is set up so that Jan 2015 earnings will come out just after op ex. Still, a lot can happen in 4 months to send NOK over $10, especially since it has not really moved much at all this year yet. Broker upgrades, Here sale, debt upgrades, big NSN wins, new product announcement, etc.
When SNDK was at about $13/sh in 2008 el cheapo Samsung offered about $16 and there was no deal. SNDK is now something like $100. Sammy needs to learn to either pay up for quality or lose out.
...is going higher and over $9 by end of month unless market dives. And I am afraid the market is due a pull back and the absurdly priced Alibaba IPO could be a catalyst as it will suck a lot of money out of the market. But then markets never crash in October, do they?
...of AG back to Ma for only about $7B just 2 years ago ? Now that 20% is worth about $32B, so YHOO gifted the #$%$ Ma about $25B. Son had the sense not to be extorted by Ma.
....they are not referring to NOK's Here but ironic that they just did a deal w/ NOK for Here. NOK still very undervalued.
The sanctions will work but will take time. Yes they can close McD's (many Russian jobs-employer of the year in 2011- and 80% of food bought locally) and not import food from Europe but soon huge inflation and depression will bite Russia badly. If Russia ups the anti then no parts for their Boeing and Air bus planes and, since unsafe, no landing rights in west or use of banks, etc.. France needs to cancel the helicopter carriers, which can be used by themselves, or sold to other countries (or reinstated when Russia comes around). Also the World Cup has to be taken away and given to one of the recent countries that had them, and ergo have the facilities. Why not Brazil again as they have the new facilities and this will help them amortize that cost? Russians have to understand that Putin is a punk and thug and is bringing Russia decades backwards. They can cut off gas but that will hurt them much and US can change its export laws so we (and Brazil, etc.) can make up much of that shortfall.
Firstly, the Finns are very conservative and cautious and the situation in Russia has them scared. And this tiny buy back program by management is a joke. NOK should have bought back 10 times as many shares as they have so far.
I guess your limited upside ($8.50, BFD!) is due to all the shares outstanding. But really why can't NOK rally to $10 in short order? What would it take, a debt upgrade, a couple of broker upgrades, a Here deal with AAPL? Is it just Russia that is holding NOK back?
And that is way too small of a share buy back!
