Let us focus on the price of oil and whether US companies would continue to give drilling contracts with the assumption that this is a temporary dip in oil prices. Please take the political stuff to another board.
Good point but I am hopeful Nokia will do some due diligence before lending its name and also have some clauses to protect its name.
You are absolutely right. This is a major event which has not sunk in. Given Nokiau0027s history of innovation and leadership this move could open a new line of revenue. Also keep in mind that Nokia can make phones by 2016. As it gets it feet wet in Android, it would be ready to launch Android phones. The software and apps are already there. They will marry it to Nokiau0027s hardware and features. Even if they capture 5% of the market that is significant new revenue over and above NSN, Here, etc.
I added to my position Friday but reeling with additional loss. It is mind boggling why the announcement has not move the stock. It is an "additionality". Regardless of what the beast is, it should have an effect of plus. The stock was worth 8 and change even without this announcement.
Good technical indicators called out. I also want to point out that with the Internet and e-Commerce type stocks sentiment is a big factor. When we look at twitter and facebook, the earnings do not match the price. it is sentiment and future promise. So let us keep our fingers crossed and wait for momentum to build up.
Actually I also thought that maybe the stock got such a warm reception because it showed its intent to sell Ticket Master. Now Ticket Master has shown good growth so why would it sell it? Maybe, by selling Ticket Master it becomes trimmed down and more suitable for a buy-out. In the meantime the sale will also make its Balance sheet stronger. Of course, this is just my wish but it is not an impossible scenario. The membership has grown so it can be a good buyout candidate.
A semiconductor company used to have a slogan "Talk is cheap its performance that counts". Brutal or Gentle the stock kicked #$%$ today.
I am long and love to see them scrambling for cover. One says, "I hope it goes to 7.40 so can short more". Which means he/she is already bleeding and wants to bleed more.
I can understand the tax benefit giving a one time gain but how does a write off create a gain. I can create expenses. Could you please elaborate, maybe I am not interpreting it correctly
Yes it is very surprising that the stock came down so much on no apparent news. Unless they are making a bid to buy Alcatel. Just a wild guess
Hard to tell. Sometimes a drop means that others know what we don't but sometimes it is the exact opposite. I am long NOK. It was tanking before earnings last week. Earnings were great and stock jumped. We might have good earnings. I am also long GRPN and getting tired of waiting but what else to do after sitting on a huge loss.
Current market cap of ALI is 6.2 B. We would certainly want a premium. At 50% premium that would make it 9B. Nokia some cash and can finance the rest but it would not want to leave itself too thin. Ericson also has about 6.5B cash. However, both these companies are not aflush like Apple. They would need 3-4B for their own operations so not sure how easy it would be to buy ALU right out. Hard to tell.
Here is not a drag. It will be the growth engine
It is killing us now, down 20 cents. Either some people know what we don't or they are lowering it so they can pick up
