RECENT BUY : Nokia Corporation (NYSE: NOK)

We Recently Purchased The Following:

Nokia Corporation (NOK)
Purchased 75 shares of NOK on 10/13/2016 at $4.88
Total Spent: $366.00; added $21.75 in forward dividends.

Nokia Corporation is one of the world’s largest providers of the networking equipment and technology that makes wireless communication possible. With a market cap of $31.0 billion and annual revenue of $19.75 billion, Nokia is one of the world’s 300 largest companies.

Here are a few reasons why we personally bought Nokia Corporation stock: 1) NOK was trading at a 36% discount from its 52-week high of $7.63; 2) Nice yield above 5% at 5.85%; 3) NOK is a fairly large company with a market cap at 31.0 Billion.

Although  there are those who remain skeptical if the long-term synergies and cost savings associated with the Alcatel-Lucent ADR (ALU) merger will ever materialize for Nokia Corporation, we believe that with the recent reorganization, Nokia's revenue strength and their evolving product development, they should be able to maintain and quite possibly increase the dividend in the coming years.

What are your thoughts on of recent purchase?

What are you buying?


  1. Interesting purchase. Not something that I see regularly on the blogs. I am intimately familiar with NOK as they are one of our competitors in the industry -- and also have my bro working there :) Its a company that Ive had a lot of respect for, over the years...although the integration with AlcaLu might be a bit of a trainwreck -- will be interesting to see how the management pulls through and deliver. Technically, they are a very strong company and Im sure they will do well over the years.

    Best wishes

  2. I have some Nokia already and I plan to buy more shares of in my Loyal3 account before this month end. Thanks for share.
