...would post like robgratz did about how great two other posters are. I think paranoid frenchie (get a life!) has claimed I have about 10 ID's but then why don't they post about how great mewag51 is?? Seriously frenchie (and aliases) you are on this board all day every day and even on weekends. Do you really think anyone cares about what wine you drink or food you like?
...we realize you are just posting to yourself and multi ID's, and your only life seems to be on this board, but don't you realize how pathetic and silly you look
..about what they are eating and how happy they are. Are they the same person? If they/you were really happy you would have lives and not have to spend their days on this board trying to convince strangers (and themselves?) that they are not losers without lives. It is fascinating what they have for breakfast though; the entire board is enthralled.
And good news coming son.
...and dream of NOK finally going up after over a year of being down. But you better drink a lot of that wine to make Suri sound good. Instead I will just eat the tapas, drink the wine, and enjoy the view from my deck with friends.
I understand NOK's desire for flexibility but there is absolutely no need for them to issue any shares, and a huge need for them to do a large share buy back. We would be much higher now if NOK management had a better understanding of finance. Any quality company with good management in NOK's situation would have already bought back a lot of shares and would be trading higher now because of it.
...the pathetic fool spends all day on this board and also uses multiple ID's. frenchie, what university did you get your psychology degree from so that you can analyze someone's happiness, etc. from posts on a message board? Did you even finish high school?
ozutk-wiz- Firstly, thanks for your concern. In the past year I have put about $9k into PBR calls (no shares) and taken out over $28k to date so I would say I am doing pretty well with them. Even my most recent purchase of calls when PBR went a tad below $6 about a month back are still ahead, (I do have some that are down) which is more than I can say about many of my NOK options. I am barely ahead on my NOK shares but all of the ones I bought in the $3's have been long ago sold in the $7's and $8's. Yes PBR is down about 50 cents today on the debt down grade to junk level (expected and where NOK has been for years) but was up 38 cents yesterday so net net not a big loss. The question is what kind of immature twit posts HAHAHA when they think someone has lost money? The answer, a loser like you and little chicken.
Well that's a pretty stupid question as the answer is obvious; compared to the other test takers, (gifted range it was). And frenchie ID's, halibut is much better than haddock, and it is you whom appear to be "miserable" and lacking a life.
...and give us a break from his insecurity and lack of a life. And yes I and many have had bonito and perhaps we should meet on the Food Network board and discus it. What does it have to do with NOK??
I think you are really over rating NOK's camera technology and the market's need for 41 mega. Why do you think there are not many camera and other tech companies that can produce the same technology but just don't think it is worth it? It didn't do much for Lumia sales. What happens when someone comes out with 42 mega pixels or 7 minute abs? What NOK needs is to do something with all the cash they have and the way way too many shares out.
highbridge57, how come they are not clever enough to get the share price up for well over a year in a strong market? I think the pumpers are way too positive on N1 (very tiny sales really and the royalties for NOK are nothing really) and Here quality. I don't use Here it but was told in India and Sri Lanka by people who had it that Here is terrible.
bonzo6- currency translations affect all companies but management with good financial chops know how to hedge, etc. and not make such excuses for poor share performance. Many European companies are still way up despite weak Euro and indeed the weak Euro is in many ways beneficial to NOK and their sales around the world. If they had used the cash well NOK would be much higher than they are now even with strong dollar.
..company than it was just 5 years ago much less when they were a wood pulp, rubber, etc. company. You write 100 years means the NOK people are patient? No it means they are long dead. Also, and again, do you not realize that NOK was all but BK and out of business a couple years ago and only saved by MSFT, right?. You do grasp the difference between NOK trading at over $100 and briefly being the biggest company (by MC)in the world (2000, a la AAPL now) and then trading for just over one dollar in 2012?
YES, now I do now wish corporate activists, (very rarely do they hurt a company) or some bigger smarter company, would step up and take NOK over, but my point was being Finnish that is unlikely. Too bad for us. No the Finns are way too complacent and boring to allow NOK to be much more than a tax payer and high paying jobs program for Finland. They run NOK like a utility and not like a growth, tech stock.
Before I wished this new management would have been good and used the cash much better and bought back way, way,way, way more shares, been more aggressive with patents, sold, spun off or partnered that money trap Here, etc.
I am not looking for excuses about time, (down for over a year in a good market is long enough), patience, the strong dollar, etc. I am looking for NOK to perform the way it was set up to by MSFT with all that cash. Enough time has passed for this management to be judged poorly due to the company's poor share performance. What reasonable, non-short investor can be happy with NOK this past year?
lafollehist- what a truly stupid response! Somehow I didn't see you at the Mensa picnic. My IQ actually tested out very high. Who says you need a TV to get a VHS recorder? That's something frenchie would think.
...you hold a bad stock (I don't either, but can admit the reality of the past year) but seriously no message board can affect the price of any company of any real size. So what are you going to spend your 20% NOK gains on? Maybe you should buy a VHS recorder as the price has come way down on those.
....BABA, LNKD and so many other companies that did not make rubber boots back in the 1800's can not be doing well as they have not been around very long. Where can I cash in my 20% NOK gains this past year? You see when it comes to investments I like to deal in facts and reality, not in nostalgia or phantom profits and excuses.
...keep the NOK management apologists entertained (and give him something to do). As for the excuse (excuses, excuses) of the strong dollar, well there are many stocks around the world that have gone way up this past strong year despite that. That's kind of my point actually, that the new NOK management does not understand finance (currency , etc.) very well (Suri should just head NSN part) and has not taken advantage of its great situation and used its cash properly. Hey APPL has to deal with selling their tons of phones into the strong dollar. Of course losers always look for excuses as to why they fail, (its not our fault, its the dollar!).
What clcellve?? You should be smarter than that. 100 years in business means nothing here as NOK has been about 10 different companies (rubber boots?) during that period. And are you forgetting that NOK essentially went BK and only still exists as Nokia today thanks to MSFT bail out??. How has NOK done since that deal and how has MSFT done? Did NOK know what they were doing when they went from #1 in cell phones to a big loser in just a couple of years?
...management to properly use the cash and assets to increase NOK's very under valued share price, do not want to get involved as the Finn gov. would likely thwart them. You would think that at some point the Finns would get tired of their national pride company NOK being such a poor performer and stock market joke. NOK needs new management!
