You don't even have a clue about how many layers of Microsoft stuff you use seamlessly and transparently for you to so boldly claim your ignorance. A sign hanging around your neck that says "I am stupid, I walk around just like everyone else, and I don't even know that I am stupid"
We are told not to judge all Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but, on the other hand, we are encouraged to judge all gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.
So you didn't factor dividends that will not be going over to the other side of the fence next year, Verizon is keeping those after the deal completes, Verizon is way undervalued. You trade for pocket change, meanwhile be pocketing significant dollars. My last major trade on a telecom I pocketed around $65/share, you go ahead and chase your pocket change, I'll pocket the dollars that you will be ignoring.
They are still in the phone business until the deal is done, no money has changed hands yet. You do know how to use the internet to look thing up, just asking.
Those are not crazy, in fact they may be a tad on the low side. The need for faster and faster network speeds are needed and the ability to install small mobile sites in cities and high density population areas is needed now more than ever. This can be accomplished thru wireless routing devices having much higher bandwidths. If NN can bring something to market that provides the communication wireless pipe that is bigger and faster than the competition, what NN would have would be in very high demand. Faster and reliability is the key.
For some reason, my first sizeable position in Nokia at $2.65/share bought back in October 2012, and the other positions I bought since then are all standing at 100%+ from a profit perspective, the price over the longer term says you don't pick stocks using a "I like the color of that teams football uniforms so I will bet on them, I have a feeling about stronger and bolder colors" approach.
The selection of the new CEO for GM grabbed some attention, would think that perhaps the CEO selection for Microsoft may not be socialized for choice as the media and pundits would have you believe. Think the CEO selection is being played very close to the vest by Microsoft, sure there are names that have not been socialized. Plus who knows, perhaps Dan Ackerman's name form GM may now be on a short list, he was at one point considered to become the CEO for MCI at one point.
The Union over there should tell the workers to go on strike, Nokia should padlock the doors and then hang a sign "FACTORY IDLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE"
Maybe he checked exactly how many recalls Fords were having and felt it was best not to draw attention to that.
Dude, that was levity, dont try to read something more into it than what it is. Just because some gal may have smiled at you and greeted you in a friendly manner does not mean that you should interpret it as she is hot for you and cant wait to get you into the sack and pork your brains out like there is no tomorrow. Okay, I went back and read, again Satan is in charge and Satan is using both hands (plural). Got it? Good!
you can check in any time you like but you can never leave . . . .
Nokia should have asked that idiot to show his belief in his conviction by publishing all French patents on everything, course, don't think Nokia is interested on patents for winemaking, French baking, and cologne for French hores.
You can hardly be considered a patent troll if you got the patent and then tended to which companies are using your IP without paying for a license to use your own funded research and resultant patent. Now if Nokia were to sell its patents to a company that just trolled, that would be a different story.
