...see why Tom Tom getting a contract would keep NOK from participating in the big rally. Well it has already given back yesterdays 4 cent surge (in a Dow up over 300). Wake up fools, it is NOK management's poor use of the massive cash and NOK's assets which has led to NOK's terrible relative performance.
bonzo6- I sure wish I had sold NOK a year ago instead of buying more. I considered NOK cheap at $8.50 and consider it even cheaper now. I guess after holding YHOO for years at around $16 and saying it was worth so much more (BABA, etc.) yet seeing it just do nothing for 3 or 4 years before finally soaring, I don't want to miss out when NOK finally makes its move. And when NOK was sub $3 I did not own it but did buy a lot in the low $3 and made a lot thanks to MSFT deal. It is the past year plus that has been so bad for NOK. I expected them to use their cash better.
That Pasadena, Texas refinery that PBR so overpaid for, was any fraud involved in that sale? Can they go after that company (Belgian, maybe?) if they bribed to gat a great deal? Otherwise at least with the fraud exposed, PBR should be a better company. And oil will come back and PBR has tons of it.
zulkoll8- you are really stupid or have no sense of humor or sardonic wit. In that post on the GOL board I was being facetious about YHOO Finance posting news about an LNG company on the GOL airline board. Again Golar is LNG and based in Bermuda while GOL is a Brazilian airline. You should be embarrassed to be so dumb, really!
banaas500- No the little chicken is a fool. I'm not desperate for NOK to just do anything, but buying back one's very undervalued shares (or do you not think NOK-after a year plus of being down-is undervalued?) when you have a ton of cash that is not doing you much good (getting what, 1% interest and it hasn't helped NOK's junk rating) then YES, buying back shares is a great investment. Reducing the way too many 3.8B shares is not "short term" in strategy but should be a long term goal to greatly reduce shares out. AGAIN, I invest to make money not watch a company underperform.
....point to many stocks with big gains in the past, that have also done nothing for a long while now. They are called losers. I made lots on NOK two years ago too, but the past year plus has been a bad joke for NOK holders. And NOK the company has a lot going for it so please tell me why for more than a year now NOK is down, (instead of up at least 25% like it should be)? Very poor use of their cash from MSFT.
zulkoll8, you IDIOT, is English not your first language? GOL is NOT in liquid natural gas (that would be Golar, I don't know their symbol) but is a Brazilian airline with the symbol the symbol also GOL. I've owned the airline many times over the past 10 or even 15 years. A disappointment recently. But you are so stupid you may have to go on ignore. Can't waste my time on a dolt.
....to be positive. At some point his NOK management needs to wake up and realize how they are failing us shareholders with their fecklessness. Is that true that outstanding shares in NOK have actually gone up?????
zulk- What??? I know what GOL is into as I have owned them numerous time over the past 10 years or so. Are you too stupid to get even a basic point, that YHOO finance make lots of mistakes and does not print all NOK "news" because of some plot they have against NOK? The original post came from a NOK pumper butt kid who could not understand why YHOO did not print a NOK/BMW PR piece, (if only they had it would surly have sent NOK up a dollar or more, I guess that's your king of logic!).
zulkoll8, you fool, even with people on ignore you can see their headlines and in this case two replies in a row. I have no idea what he wrote (or really even why I put him on ignore so long ago). Are you that dumb and specious? Maybe you should be on ignore.
Amazing that with all that cash, and share price so dangerously low, and an announced share buy back, that NOK's outstanding shares can go up from a level that is already way way way too high. And yet the management butts kids and apologists continue to support the horrible share performance and post pumps of the stock. Lets get this over $9 first before rewarding bad performance by management. Shares should be under 3 bil by now if they knew how to use the MSFT cash.
...posts. You lost credibility on this board a long time ago
zulkoll8, it is you who missed the point. The Yahoo message board confused Golar for GOL by printing an LNG story under GOL (and airline). The point was YHOO does not have an agenda in what the print as much as just making errors. I use many sources for my research but obviously we all use Yahoo for some as this is the YHOO message board, right? Are you a NOK management apologist?
checks's ??? frenchie, check your grammar since you are so concerned with spelling.
What are you investing in NOK to make money or something?
...share performance because that is what the facts point to? Seriously, just answer this question? How far up is the Dow these past 3 days and what has NOK done? And you do realize (maybe YOU don't) that NOK is down for over a year now in a very good market? How has MSFT done this past year after setting NOK up so well with all that cash? NOK performance is an embarrassment and for management to just sit on all that cash and do nothing is a crime.
lafollehistoire- You are a moron who does not understand business. NOK is not in the poor shape you seem to think. But YES, a hotel chain that has already taken care of its maintenance, etc. and has a strong business and is just sitting on a ton of cash, and whose shares are trading very, very low, and do not even move up when the markets move up big, should certainly buy back some of its shares. I realize you NOK apologists and yes men probably work for NOK and post your drivel for them, but a what point are you sick of NOK's chronic poor stock market performance? I think most of us long time (at least over a year) NOK investors are sick of its terrible performance while just sitting on cash and collecting nothing.
The point was/is, Elop was CEO when the MSFT deal was done (Sept 2013) and that is what sent NOK up to over $8 by Dec. 2013. We are now only at $7.50 over a year later..
yeah, NOK shares will put you to sleep even on a huge up Dow day.
