Nokia Fights Back: Time To Invest
Nokia (NOK) is appealing for various positions in the market due to the combination of a very low stock price complemented by a strong global brand alongside substantial speculation and interest regarding its near term and long term outlook. Current shareholders and interested investors can utilize Nokia as an effective candidate for a short sell or a short squeeze. Nokia may even be viable for a long term investment with robust capital appreciation. Nokia is effectively restructuring the organization to capitalize on the growing mobile data industry. Nokia is forming strong partnerships with major tech firms, wireless carriers and operators that are invested and benefit in seeing it rebound into prominence. With the improvement of the Nokia Siemens Network and its smart device segment, Nokia may soon reestablish its position as one the premier players in the mobile industry.
Research in Motion (RIMM) is most comparable to the headwinds and potential obscurity that Nokia’s future has been faced with. Research in Motion will also have a new Blackberry device that it’s hoping will herald in its resurgence from the projected launch in early 2013. New products from both Nokia and Research in Motion will be carried by Verizon (VZ); AT&T (T) has been carrying Nokia’s Lumia series since mid-2012.
Nokia’s future and projected rebound in the wireless sector depends greatly on the popularity of Microsoft‘s (MSFT) new mobile Windows 8 OS. Both AT&T and Verizon want a successful Windows 8 device launch in order to have a third viable OS that can improve competition and lower the subsidy costs they’re paying on other smartphones like Apple’s iPhones.
