I wanted the cash, the markets are kinda of iffy and there are a lot of other stocks to play for a turnaround. I can find something that will double faster than Nokia will, the merger set them back for a few years and worse case may damage them if the culture of ALU can't jell with NOK. The Finnish workers are hard workers, the French like to squeeze every penny they can out of a business for as little effort as possible. Not a good match to tell you the truth.
I ended up selling most of my shares before earnings and with their announcement of return of money to shareholders in the latest earning was able to sell the rest. I should of sold everything when the rumors of Nokia buying that garbage of a company called ALU. They messed up buying a company that never made a profit then sold off Here for pennies.
If not for the stupid ALU merger NOk would of made double digits by now.
