Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NOK)’s Weakness

Overall, I think it’s a good move for both companies. Microsoft has reached a point where it needs to make some big moves and has to start planning for the future in a new way. Nokia was going nowhere fast, and the tie to Microsoft should give it some help, at least in funding its innovation. The market wasn’t happy with Microsoft, and the stock was down almost 6% by midday. In the long run, though, this is a good plan.
