Shorty, you think by posting messages like this you can scare everyone in selling and bring the price down and then cover!? You really think you can do that!? Every message board has an idiot and you certainly qualify for the board idiot here.

What are those fundamental and technical indicators that you have watched? Don't give me that crapola. Name each indicator and fundamental indicator. And then tell me how each one conveys RISK OUTWEIGHS REWARD. More than likely you don't know what is a technical indicator if it hit you smack on the face. You are a poor miserable SHORT and that is all need to know.
Rookie huh? I bought ALU at high 1s and sold at low 4s, I bought NOK at mid 5s and sold some at $8s and holding the rest. How did you come out to that conclusion that risk outweighs the reward? Pulled it from certain part of your anatomy? Why did you even buy this stock if risk outweighs the reward? Better yet why don't you sell and join the oblivion?
The European Commission has given the green light to Nokia's (NYSE:NOK) #$%$15.6B acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE:ALU), stating "the parties are not close competitors [and] a number of strong global competitors will remain active."
The new deal marks Nokia's latest transition from a company with major interests in consumer markets to an operation focused primarily on business and industry clients.
The WSJ and Germany's Manager Magazin report Nokia has reached a deal with a consortium featuring Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIY), BMW (OTCPK:BAMXY), and Audi (OTCPK:AUDVF) to sell its HERE mapping/navigation software unit for about #$%$2.5B ($2.72B).
Around September of 2014, Alcatel Lucent and Ericsson submitted the first bid to build a $10 billion national mobile network project in Mexico. Also bidding was Huawei the Chinese telecom equipment maker. Then it was announced that the Mexican Government will make a decision to whom it would assign the contract by mid 2015. These all occurred before ALU takeover by Nokia. Now that ALU is a part of Nokia, winning a contract such as this can significantly affect Nokia stock. Anyone heard anything about the status of this contract? I think that Alcatel-Lucent’s cost-efficient 3G/4G solutions may help it beat the 'packaged-loan-fueled' strategy of Huawei. Huawei as part of its sales tactics, provides interest free or very low interest financing to the potential clients through Chinese Government owned banks. This is called 'packaged-loan-fueled' strategy.
Also, the expected REVENUE for Nokia is $3.59 billions and for ALU is $3.75 billions. I searched for whisper numbers for ALU and Nokia but could not find any.
Expected earnings for Nokia $.06 and for ALU $.02. Let us hope that they both beat the estimates!
Also from WSJ dated July 16, 2015......
"Europe’s competition regulator is training its sights on Qualcomm Inc., adding to regulatory woes that have long dogged the big mobile chip maker.
The European Commission, the bloc’s top antitrust authority, on Thursday said it had opened two formal investigations of the San Diego-based company. The commission said it would investigate possible predatory pricing tactics by Qualcomm to determine whether the company charged prices below its production costs to squeeze out competitors.
The commission will also investigate whether Qualcomm offered discounts to customers on the condition that they buy baseband chips exclusively from the company. Baseband chips manage cellular connections in devices such as smartphones and tablets".
It would be of interest to know that Alcatel Lucent (recently taken over by Nokia) uses Qualcomm chips in some of its products.

I am not Greek but where I live there are lots of Greeks and I have a lot of Greek friends. Good people with a great cuisine! The consensus among my Greek friends is that EU wants to bring down the Tsipras government because of its left leaning and that is why it has chosen an unyielding position in all negotiations. Do you agree with this?
