+ Watch NOK
on My Watchlist
Nokia aims to be the world leader in mobility, manufacturing cell phones and offering mobile Internet services.
The name recognition (handset) is slowly fading. Having sold HERE, there will be less ambiguity on cashflow. There strong finances will begin to command some market respect and bounce of the recent low stock prices.
Not anymore. Once but not anymore
Their two main focuses seem to be on MAPs and wireless networks. Think about the next five years and think about how you will access information. It will be via a wireless network and Nokia is leading the charge in many emerging markets.
Nokia will be able to provide services in critical LTE network niche companies worldwide. Company is position to invest a deep cycle of R&D due to sell of of cell phone hardware to microsoft. Ultimately Nokia will be a significant player in the M2M playing field which is poised to become one of the larger areas of future industry.
after the sell to microsoft its a buy
Nokia has economic muscles after selling its mobile business to Microsoft given the possibility to focus on mobile network and new business areas like advanced gps technology, project "Here" could well make Nokia a big and important player when driverless cars are becoming a standard sight on the roads.
They seem to be primed to make some strong maneuvers with their business plans. I like where they're headed.
With the pending sale to Microsoft of the handset business Nokia will be cash rich. They could acquire a number of players in the wireless infrastructure space. They have a very healthy patent portfolio and the opportunity to reinvent themselves.
Finally the company made the right move to incorporate Android into their phones. Nokia's hardware is second to none, however with their acceptance of Android they should have a fighting chance.
I think this one is emotional for the moment. I'm going to try to take advantage of this and get it around 7 with an options covered call. I'm an unemotional investor!
it just got a takeover by Microsoft and it was in the dumps but now it is rollin.
After MSFT's devices & features acquisition, Nokia can concentrate on the money-making product, its network business. Granted, it has three separate business arms which don't seem to merge well into a single unit, but on the bright side, it now has a huge chunk of change to work with.
I think Nokia's price will jump if EGM approve selling D&S division to Microsoft. After that markets can start valuing, what's left in Nokia.
it will cool off after the heype with microsolft
watch and see
Behemoth company with $10BB in cash on balance sheet and about half as much in debt. This used to be one of my favorite free cash generating companies, when they were cranking out $2-3BB in operating cash and only spending $0.5-1.0 in cap ex each year. I believe the turnaround will take hold and they will remake themselves into a viable company. They have leverage and the ability to distribute new products / services worldwide. A bit of a gamble, but let's see what happens. Price target is $20 per share.
Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for yet the evidence of things unseen. I bought this stock on this truth when it was $1.95 per share now it is trading for over $7 . I trade by Faith and not by sight. The company has found it's financial footing and is fundamentally sound. Once it completes it's partnership arrangements with ALU it will become a formidable force to reckon with in the European networking community.
Nokia's HERE location services business continues to rack up hefty operating losses while larger players like Google and Apple appear to have stronger offerings.
With a sealed deal, NOK will be able to focus on the profitable NSN segment. All that cash on hand could lead to some purchases of competitors, making it a strong player.
