Coming into today, shares of the technology company had lost 12.28% in the past month. In that same time, the Computer and Technology sector lost 0.17%, while the S&P 500 lost 0.46%.

Investors will be hoping for strength from NOK as it approaches its next earnings release. On that day, NOK is projected to report earnings of $0.07 per share, which would represent year-over-year growth of 16.67%. Our most recent consensus estimate is calling for quarterly revenue of $6.41 billion, up 1.44% from the year-ago period.

Looking at the full year, our Zacks Consensus Estimates suggest analysts are expecting earnings of $0.28 per share and revenue of $25.61 billion. These totals would mark changes of +12% and -1.8%, respectively, from last year.
