Indian tax issue would need to be resolved, would not be prudent to close the deal for Microsoft as it might be implied that Microsoft might become liable. If Nokia doesn't have a presence in India, Microsoft would, India will still want what is owed.
Gaps are not what you think they are and gaps are only filled in the future based on the time dynamics of a time cycle that synchronizes to a time cycle in the past. Price trades in accordance to the time of the energy associated to the price. Since perhaps there is no one on this board that knows what I am referring to, lets just leave it as a qualified no, not concerned about gaps.
Ford share price is in the $16/$17 range, oh yeah bring in the car guy to create shareholder value.
I never thought a CEO from the automobile field that creates products that have ongoing recalls a good fit for Microsoft. Ask yourself, when was the last time you bought a Ford? And you want a guy that you wouldn't buy a car from running this company?
I heard the same commercial, they must have got you on a vulnerable day, not me. If it were me, would be playing the currencies based on who owns the most physical gold ready to step in and become the deserve currency because of their gold holdings.
The handwriting on the wall should be pretty obvious by now. The old Microsoft that folks liked to hate will soon be turning into the Microsoft folks will love. The run up in the Apple price, lets just say doubling in share price is going to be a lot harder to occur, Microsoft's price has been significantly depressed for years. I see perhaps at least a doubling to maybe close to tripling the stock price in the future from the current levels. Apple is not delivering ground breaking technology anymore. Although I am not going to buy more Microsoft, my expectation is that my meager holding of 3K shares should do well.
Terrorist are not concerned with being economically viable, but once the open the skies up for commercial drones, you can very well bet the terrorist are going to be launching drones with biological agents from all over the world, and they will all look like Amazon drones. With 3D printing, you can bet the terrorist are looking at that, untraceable weapons, no need to buy them on the black market, just print off what you need to kill people.
How Nokia trades is how it trades, the only influence anyone can exercise is to influence anyone that doesn't have conviction is how they trade either long or short.
Not sure how India could approve the sales with a tax issue looming but it was reported on Monday that India had approved the sale, the only approval left was the EU which they gave the deadline of today to issue their decision.
EU approval is supposed to come tomorrow, this has more to do with where the share price is at than the Euro.
Since Yahoo has been making changes as of late, from a user perspective, the user experience is becoming the most horrible experience in any web based interface that I have used. Yahoo has gone so far as to cripple web features in my Internet Explorer browser, video no longer play under Internet Explorer, but they do under Chrome. Perhaps this by design. Now I am getting transparency overlays by Yahoo on input boxes such as this one I am typing into. Looks like Yahoo is trying to align itstelf to be bought out by Apple, I for one am dropping my use of Yahoo, it is no longer considered to have value for use, the experience is degrading on a day to day basis. Good luck with your stock price, the worse Yahoo becomes seems the higher the stock price goes.
If you keep saying something long enough and use the media to keep pounding a message sooner or later a recession can be marketed thru the media. Me, I believe how markets are reacting are all tied into globalization and there is no one alive that really understands from a comprehensive picture. The only thing that makes sense is when you have the strongest economy in the world that was driving the global economy and give away the parts that made that economy to economies, no matter how big the population, those economies that are not drivers of global prosperity, you will have a global recession. Both China and India should be driving global prosperity, but they are not, they are only driving their economies. With the US now on the brink of becoming a truly mediocre economic driver for globalization, there are no other countries that will drive global prosperity. Jobs in the US that are being created are being created from a global job wage scale, so, unless there is growth of good paying jobs in the US, the global economy is going into recession.
•Microsoft’s gross margin on sales of Nokia’s Windows Phone handsets before the deal: Less than $10.
•Microsoft’s expected gross margin on sales of Nokia’s Windows Phone handsets after the deal: More than $40
Can you say cha-ching?
Wednesday is the day the EU is supposed to rule on the Microsoft / Nokia deal, last hurdle before billions roll to Nokia in early 2014. Looking for a pop on Nokia stock when EU approval is given.
The only experience that I have with companies that did reverse splits, it did put the price per share higher for a brief period of time but invariably the companies turn around and issue more shares to sell which further dilutes the values. A better approach is to do a share buy back to make less share available to trade, if a company does not have the cash to do a share buy back, but decides to go with a reverse split instead, I dump these companies immediately and will not stick around to watch thousands of dollars in value disappear. Anyone suggesting a reverse split obviously have never experienced one of these first hand with their own dollars.
So where was the thought and the thinking for it form the government before this was turned up? All this stuff blaming Verizon is nothing more than a bunch of no talent bums trying to deflect from the hundreds of millions of dollars spent and nothing but shoddy work was done.
