Nokia - Company Profile - A Flawed Strategy: 2013

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Nokia - Company Profile - A Flawed Strategy" company profile to their offering.

Investment thesis - The turnaround strategy is fundamentally flawed.

Nokia's competitive edge was in manufacturing low-cost (standard) handsets in high volumes. Nokia hasn't recovered from missing the shift in consumer demand to smartphones and apps. Adopting Windows OS was misguided as it lacks content to compete with iPhone & Android. The turnaround strategy is fundamentally flawed and Nokia's future is bleak.

Poor 2012 Q4 results - Finally an operating profit but EPS falls 7%.

The key event this Q was that Nokia produced its first operating profit since Q1 2011, leading to speculation that Nokia has finally turned a corner. But smartphones remain in crisis with revenues in steep decline, operating losses and still a lack of adequate smartphones & apps to compete with Samsung & Apple.

Independent, buy-side, fundamental, financial analysis.
