SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 15, 2019 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced the Company will present at the following investor.
The wait for Nokia (NYSE:NOK) stock to gain traction continues. A second-quarter earnings and revenue beat sent its shares surging higher. However, Nokia stock has almost fallen back to the $5.20 per share level where it traded before the company released its quarterly report.Source: Shutterstock NOK can benefit tremendously from the adoption of 5G. But until the company delivers profits and increases investors' confidence, Nokia stock will struggle. Reinvention, Low Valuation Have Not Helped Nokia StockThanks to its purchase of Alcatel-Lucent in 2016, Nokia has reinvented itself as a telecom-equipment maker. Consequently, Nokia's equipment has helped facilitate the transition to 5G service. While NOK's reinvention should have helped Nokia stock, that hasn't been the case so far.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOn January 14, 2016, the day of the Alcatel deal, Nokia traded at an adjusted price of $6.39 per share. Today, Nokia stock sells for around $5.22 per share, meaning that NOK has lost more than 16% of its value in the last 3.5 years. * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul After the downturn, NOK is a reasonably-priced stock. The decline has taken its forward price-earnings (PE) ratio to about 13. Analysts' average estimate predicts that Nokia's profit won't rise this year. However, the average estimates call for an earnings increase of 51.9% next year and average annual profit growth of 23.9% over the next five years, as more consumers and businesses begin to use 5G.Unfortunately, NOK stock has burned investors before. Of course, Nokia was blindsided by the advent of the smartphone. I have recommended NOK repeatedly, only to always see it fail to gain traction. Those who listened to me have collected a dividend, but Nokia stock has not delivered a sustained rally. Can Nokia Stock Finally Recover?So what will boost Nokia stock? InvestorPlace contributor Thomas Niel believes NOK will not move much in the near-term. However, he also thinks "new developments on the 5G front" could turn into the catalyst Nokia needs.But telecom companies can turn to equipment makers besides NOK, including Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR).NOK traded above $60 during the height of the dot-com bubble. It surpassed $40 per share in 2007 when its share of the cell phone market was 49.4%. That year, Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) introduction of the iPhone pushed NOK into a descent from which it never recovered. As a result, confidence in Nokia has dropped. The company will need to restore that confidence if it wants to spark a recovery in NOK stock. Should Investors Buy NOK?I see no evidence that Nokia will become the leader of the telecom-equipment sector. Most other investors probably feel the same way For this reason, NOK stock has traded between the high-$3s per share and the high $8s per share range since 2013. Given this pattern, investors can probably forget about NOK stock reaching $40 or $60 anytime soon.However, once 5G is adopted more extensively, Nokia stock could break out of its current range. Historically, NOK has traded at an average P/E ratio of 25.3. If NOK meets analysts' average 2019 EPS estimate of 27 cents, and its PE multiple rises to its historic average of 25.3, NOK stock price would reach $6.83. If its 2020 EPS reaches the average estimate of 41 cents per share, and its PE ratio rises to 25.3, the stock price would reach $10.37.If NOK, boosted by the 5G revolution finds a way to beat the average estimates, the long-awaited recovery of Nokia stock could finally materialize.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Nokia (NYSE:NOK) showed some progress in its second-quarter report last week. It even briefly boosted NOK stock: shares climbed 10% after Thursday's release. But in the last week, Nokia stock already has given back roughly half those gains.Source: Shutterstock It's not terribly hard to see why that is. Traders responded well to the company's headline beat. But investors are more cautious, and with good reason. The Q2 report follows a first quarter release that was much weaker (NOK stock actually fell 10% after that report). Full-year guidance was reaffirmed -- and so were the risks to that guidance. * 8 of the Most Shorted Stocks in the Markets Right Now More broadly, as I detailed in June, Nokia has disappointed several times before. The 5G opportunity might be different, but investors would be forgiven for not wholly trusting the company just yet.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Q2 and First Half Nokia EarningsTraders likely focused on the headline numbers here, which look strong, at least relative to expectations. Adjusted EPS of €0.05 came in €0.02 ahead of consensus. The top-line performance was more impressive: revenue rose 7.2%, about five points better than the Street projected.But that beat doesn't necessarily suggest that Nokia stock is getting back to growth. The company explained a soft Q1 as driven in part by contracts which were signed in the quarter, but didn't contribute to revenue until Q2. That timing -- somewhat -- explains the difference in how the two quarters were viewed.Taking the first half as a whole, the news hardly seems spectacular. Revenue, in constant currency, grew just 2% year-over-year. Adjusted operating profit fell 32%. And Nokia burned a whopping €2.5 billion (about US$2.75 billion) in cash. The performance so far doesn't necessarily suggest that Nokia has turned the corner. Optimism Toward NOK StockThat said, Nokia stock probably deserved some gains after the quarter -- if only due to a sort of relief rally. After Q1, it seemed unlikely that Nokia would meet its full-year EPS guidance. The consensus estimate was below the low end of the company's range. The Q2 beat gets Nokia back on track toward at least clipping the low end of the range.That's important for two reasons. First, it re-establishes some level of credibility for Nokia. Again, this is a company that has disappointed repeatedly. It sold its phone business to Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) for US$7 billion in cash, which turned out to be a great deal (and a disaster for Microsoft). Six years later, NOK stock trades basically where it did after it soared on that deal.In early 2016, Nokia took control of Alcatel-Lucent via tender offer in a supposedly transformative acquisition. Nokia stock has declined since that deal was closed (and since it was announced the year before).The opportunity now comes from enormous cost-cutting -- some €500 million in savings next year -- and 5G. Nokia needs to capitalize this time, and Q2 is a modest step in that journey.Secondly, it's 2020 earnings that really matter for Nokia. Thanks in part to those cost cuts, Nokia is projecting a big step up in profits next year. Adjusted EPS is guided to rise from €0.25-€0.29 this year to €0.37-€0.42 next year. The 2020 target makes NOK look cheap: about 12.5x earnings at the midpoint of that guidance.Basically, if Nokia hits next year's target, Nokia stock is going to rise. If it doesn't, NOK at best stays dead money. The company still wrote in its release that guidance "puts significant pressure on execution in the second half." But Q2's performance at least gives the company a chance of reaching its guidance for this year. That's a step in the right direction for the company, and a reason to see a bounce in the stock. Will 5G Boost Nokia Stock?There's one more piece of good news worth highlighting. Again, cost cuts should help margins and 5G should drive growth. The question is whether, with China's Huawei facing security concerns, Nokia can outperform rival Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) in 5G. Early returns look good.In fact, CEO Rajeev Suri said on the Q2 conference call that of the existing Nokia 4G LTE customers who have chosen a 5G supplier, every one of them has chosen Nokia. That suggests early strength in 5G -- and a nice base for growth going forward. It's another reason to see the report as bullish for NOK stock.Personally, I'm not quite ready to jump on board. One quarter doesn't change execution concerns, particularly with the company itself still saying guidance is at risk. With the exception of Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), the networking space has been a difficult one for companies and investors (Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), for instance has traded sideways for years now). 5G growth is important, but it's going to be offset by 4G losses.There's still a lot left for Nokia to prove. But give credit where credit is due: the company at least took a solid step forward last week.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

Soft demand in service provider business, along with imprudent management of operating expenses take toll on Juniper's (JNPR) second-quarter financial performance.
Just one day after the S&P 500 made its best-ever close, investors changed their mind. Worried about new threats of economic turbulence, traders shaved 0.53% off Wednesday's closing value for the index.Source: Shutterstock Ford Motor (NYSE:F) did the most net damage, losing more than 7% of its value in response to a lackluster second-quarter report, though shares of rival Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) took an even-bigger 14% tumble on the electric vehicle maker's unexpectedly big loss.Working to keep the S&P 500 in the black, unsuccessfully, were Nokia (NYSE:NOK) and Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND). Shares of the telecom tech giant gained more than 10% on its second quarter numbers, while the meatless-hamburger outfit saw its stock advance almost as much during the regular-hours session on news that it was partnering with Dunkin Brands (NASDAQ:DNKN) to bring a new fast-food breakfast option to the market. Beyond Meat's post-close gain of 3% pushed it past Nokia's Thursday gain, though it had far less overall impact on the broad market.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Oversold Stocks To Buy Right Now None are great trading prospects as we head into the final trading day of the week. Rather, it's the stock charts of Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) and BorgWarner (NYSE:BWA) that appear best suited as potential movers. BorgWarner (BWA)BorgWarner shares may have taken a sizable loss on Thursday, pulling the rug out from underneath what looked to be a respectable turnaround effort that started to take shape early this year.In some regards, however, Thursday's stumble may have been the best thing possible for the young rebound attempt. Even before the closing bell rang, a handful of buyers were starting to wade back in. And, with or without the partial intraday comeback, we saw another bullish clue take shape. There's just a little more work to do. Click to Enlarge• The assuring nuance in Thursday's bar is where BWA found a floor and then started to rebound. All it took was a brush of the gray 100-day moving average line.• Underscoring that bullish persistence is the "golden cross" that took shape yesterday, where the purple 50-day moving average line crosses back above the white 200-day moving average.• The potential breakout catalyst has been well-defined. If BWA can push above the resistance line that's tagged the major highs since April, plotted in blue on both stock charts, the bears may not bother with another attempt to drive it back. Juniper Networks (JNPR)Long-term Juniper Networks shareholders are no strangers to volatility. In fact, it would be unusual if JNPR stock wasn't making wild and fairly unpredictable swings.The bigger-picture tide is turning though, and for the worst. Though not readily evident on the daily chart, the weekly chart shows a long-established floor is starting to buckle. The daily chart in the meantime is starting to wave some other red flags of its own that underscore that mounting trouble. Click to Enlarge• Chief among the daily chart's red flags is June's and then July's resistance at the white 200-day moving average line. Bolstering that bearish hint are several high-volume pullbacks since April.• Juniper shares are currently above the lower edge of a converging wedge pattern, marked in blue, going back to 2013. But, that support has been cracked, by last month's steep pullback. Another break under it us within reach.• Though easy to overlook, the cross of the gray 100-day moving average line below the white 200-day moving average line in April happened at a level below the same warning that materialized in mid-2017. Southwest Airlines (LUV)Southwest Airlines shares didn't start Thursday out on a particularly bullish foot. Last quarter's earnings were better than expected, but the revenue shortfall and continued turbulence with the Boeing 737 MAX initially worried some investors.When all was said and done though, LUV stock ended the day higher after traders had a chance to rethink what lies ahead. All it took was a kiss of a key moving average line to start forming an outside day. The big intraday shift in sentiment speaks volumes about the market's view of the company, and the stock. Click to Enlarge• Yesterday's close above Wednesday's high following yesterday's open below Wednesday's low constitutes an "outside day." The fact that the sellers couldn't hold LUV shares down points to strong bullishness.• The 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts, sparked the intraday reversal. That's the one line where such a reversal would mean the most.• Zooming out to the weekly chart, we can see the underpinnings for this week's bullishness were laid as far back as 2015, suggesting this new advance could persist indefinitely.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
