g99sim, no I am not clueless but indeed have a graduate degree in Economics, an undergad in International Relations, (from a great school in that field, (had Condi Rice-talk about clueless- as a fellow classmate) and have traveled the world extensively (many times to Europe, Mideast, Latin America, (off to Dubai and Sri Lanka for a month tomorrow), etc. It is people like you who get all their "news" from Fox and Beck who are not just clueless but truly ignorant and those you support (the wing nut neo con men) have greatly weakened America by starting unneeded wars, destroying our economy, etc. . Reality is, Obama is bringing America back from the ditch W Bush (and how did that Georgia thing work out for W?) drove us into.
....no decency or understanding of history, or the world. No doubt this person is just like Putin, little, macho, insecure w/ an inferiority complex. Too bad there is so much trash like him in the USA. President Obama has been handling this situation well. Not for the wing nuts who always want war maybe, but for intelligent and decent Americans.
Obviously from your id you are a tea party right wing nut (read very stupid and poorly educated-did you only finish high school like those wing nut morons, Rush Beck and Hannity??) with a crude, white trash bent so I will just put you on ignore. But yes, Sarah Palin is an idiot and a joke.
..., well, Nokia, a nice neutral company from a neutral country, with the best products.
...is not really right and one of many idiotic views that show how little she understands the world, or just about anything. I see your response was to one of the many idiots I have on ignore (planetnokia, cornflake, momo, e2m etc.) so maybe its not that you did not understand my post and thought I liked Palin (a Fox news idiot!). Also Putin is not "rebuilding the Russian Empire (impossible) but protecting it's most important navel base (through long history its only warm water port) and siding with the majority ethnic Russians in Crimea who do not support, and even fear the new Ukrainian gov. What I fear is a civil war that separates the entire eastern half of the country. The best solution, (one that will never happen), would be for a fair election monitored by UN, in Crimea (which after all was part of Russia until 1954) to let the people decide if Crimea should stay as before, become an independent nation (no doubt aliened with Russia), or join Russia. If they join Russia then Russia should compensate Ukraine for the area to the tune of $50 B or so in aid. I know, that's not gonna happen!
Really, you Fox news crazies have no real understanding of history or the world.
Wall Street crooks.
That's of course blimpsrus2001 who has the simplistic view of splits and clearly does not understand the various uses of a reverse split. They can (not usually) be very positive for a company (e.g. Priceline)
You have a very basic and simplistic understanding of stock splits. They are a tool that has numerous uses and are NOT necessarily bad or done out of desperation.
They should buy back upwards to one billion shares (up to $9/sh or so) which would still leave NOK with 2.7 bil shares which is too many but much better.
...be trading at about $50.
Looks like US/Canada for the Gold but scrappy Finns and Sweds in the way.
That is NOK would be left with $3 bil or so after such a share buy back. Frustrating to see NOK down on such a strong market day but NOK was up big on a lot of down market days and it is now a coil ready to move up fast after deal closes. Too many shares out though. A 2 to 3% regular div. (but not a one time div.) would be nice too.
I agree the share count needs to come down and would like to see NOK buy back (Dutch auction) about one bil. shares ( still leave them with $ or so bil. and perhaps also do a one for two (or three or four) r/s. But there are lots of clowns on this board whom do not understand reverse splits and think they are always bad and always done only out of desperation.
Of course I mean graphine as the world changing tech. My point is if NOK were an IPO it would likely be $50 or something with far worse fundamentals than it now has. The market will wake up to NOK's real value before too long. Look at the value of TSLA, TWIT, etc. vis a vis NOK.
...technology in an essential and booming field (NSN) , huge and growing patent royalty income as well as advanced tech. in other potentially world changing tech, etc. is only trading at $7. NOK will be over $20 certainly within 2 years and perhaps much sooner. Don't let this India noise let them steal your shares.
Everyone wants more money but the way India operates is dishonest and sleazy. In my headline it came out "distortion" but what I meant to write was extortion.
