The historical weakness with Nokia's stock has to do with the number of splits that they did over a period of time. It was the last split that Nokia had that started the downward spiral. Nokia's management and BOD were too busy sucking money out of this company using it like an ATM machine until it got to the point of no return. Stock buybacks are nothing more than correcting the damage the company did to the stock price. If you don't bloat the market with shares, you don't damage the stock price through bloat. Take Apple for instance, Apple would have been in a better position had it done a 2:1 or a 3:1, instead it did a 7:1. Folks on the Apple board are not happy now because the Apple share price now moves like a normal stock. There can be no rampant speculation on Apple now when over 6B+ shares are in the float. Lets hope that Icahn doesn't decide to start a tweeting campaign on Nokia - just stay away Icahn, just stay away.
Global Warming is the biggest hoax money maker that they ever came up with. The earth moves around the sun which in turn moves around our galaxy. There are more than just a few cycles going on here and I attribute any warming or cooling to the cycles that occur in nature. There may be some very minimal impact from man kind over the years, more like a nuisance that mother earth will correct, but correct she will. Find it interesting that some of the scientists have been threatened with lawsuits to keep them from releasing information to the public. As long as the media is controlled to provide the message you are to be told, then it will be global warming du jour. Much like the Salem witch trials, advertise that there is an evil menace, make sure it is front and center for years, meanwhile pay no attention behind the scenes to the clergy and the affluent to confiscate land and property. Did you every hear of any land or property from the Salem witch trials that had a curse?
Yahoo has decided to drop the source of the article that it is posting. Now all the idiot articles for Motley Fool and Seeking Alpha have been given the same level as article that are written by Forbes, Bloomberg, and some of the more reputable firms. Yahoo may say this make it more efficient to transmit the information with less information being transmitted, I say it is to hides credibility because now you have to think about the headline posted versus the source it came from. I say Yahoo is in trouble, if another source comes out with financial message boards that are fairly easy to read and post to, Yahoo is going to be in trouble. Ask yourself, do you really use Yahoo for much of anything else?
When Apple trips and falls, Apple will hit the button on its iWatch "Help, I've fallen and I cant get up" and no one will care.
Hopefully Microsoft will provide the ability to run two external monitors at some point, I run dual 23" external monitors off my HP laptop, really like having the same geometry using dual monitors
Some one that writes in the tech community needs to write a headline "The Surface 3 - A Solid Home Run"
Verizon has a class for folks like you, its called "How To Find The Power On Button On Your FIOS Equipment", obvious that you have not taken it yet.
Wait till they report the number of institutional investors on the next report, then you will come to understand that the thrill is gone. What did you expect from Icahn getting involved? There are plenty of other place to make money, and unless Apple releases the secret how to turn lead into gold, until then its a go no where do nuthin stock. You might want to think about capital preservation.
A pig wearing lipstick having a couple of coins for jingle jingle doesn't make you anything else than a pig with lipstick and no one really cares how big of an OINK OINK you make.
What were they thinking 7:1? When the short bias gets in full force, it will be 7 times more vicious than what occurred when Apple sank from $705, you may not want to be long when Apple closes under $90. Once it is realized that a 7:1 split should not have happened, first one that mentions a reverse split, Apple is done.
Think the value isn't priced into the stock price yet.
that is what it appears to me. The headlines where Microsoft is winning over businesses and governments just seems to be accelerating. You cannot help but notice that that the deals for the adoption of Microsoft cloud business in running in the tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands.
I could be wrong, but think in this situation that the value of the shares may not drop because Nokia didn't create profitable revenue from which the dividends are being paid from. Nokia jettisoned what appears to be a money losing proposition with smart devices and gain a boatload of cash, the dividends are being paid out of that with significant dollars left over to invest to build their now existing businesses. They can book the deal as revenue but the billions from Microsoft did not come from ongoing operations that generate revenue day in and day out.
