Buy Nokia Stock

Amid drastic changes to its business, Nokia (NOK 1.45%) continues to attract investor attention. Once the leading maker of mobile phones, it has redefined itself as a telecom equipment stock in the 5G era. Moreover, it has recently drawn attention from traders on Reddit as a meme stock, in part due to its low per-share price.

Recently, Nokia stock surged higher after the company revealed it would raise guidance in the upcoming quarter. The announcement sent the stock price upward by 9% on July 13, and it has largely held onto those gains in the days since, closing Tuesday trading at $5.81 per share.

Moreover, the increased attention from traders in Reddit's WallStreetBets subreddit has fueled speculation. Some believe the company's July 29 earnings announcement, when management will reveal its new guidance, could spur the stock much higher. Still, despite the recent stock price increase, Nokia's market cap is down by about 4% over the last five years.

Moreover, Nokia has about 5.6 billion shares outstanding. With so many shares available, gains become more difficult as it takes large purchases to move the stock price. In comparison, AMC Entertainment, which many shareholders slammed recently for its efforts to issue additional shares, has made about 502 million shares available.

This oversupply of shares points to a key difference with other low-priced stocks. Most companies trading in the $5 per share range are either small or mid-cap companies. Nokia has a market cap of about $32 billion -- well into large-cap territory. Consequently, if it returned to its all-time high in the $62 per share range, that would take its market cap to $350 billion.

In the end, Nokia is unlikely to turn small investors into millionaires. Admittedly, an upgrade to its guidance and the speculative interest of meme-stock traders could push its share price higher. However, anecdotal evidence suggests its network equipment is not meeting the standard set by its peers. Moreover, with its revenue flat, investors have less incentive to bid the stock price up.

Unless Nokia can start to match or beat its peers in the telecom equipment market in terms of quality, this stock could struggle to outperform the S&P 500, let alone create millionaires.

Here at Zacks, our focus is on the proven Zacks Rank system, which emphasizes earnings estimates and estimate revisions to find great stocks. Nevertheless, we are always paying attention to the latest value, growth, and momentum trends to underscore strong picks.

Considering these trends, value investing is clearly one of the most preferred ways to find strong stocks in any type of market. Value investors use fundamental analysis and traditional valuation metrics to find stocks that they believe are being undervalued by the market at large.

Zacks has developed the innovative Style Scores system to highlight stocks with specific traits. For example, value investors will be interested in stocks with great grades in the "Value" category. When paired with a high Zacks Rank, "A" grades in the Value category are among the strongest value stocks on the market today.

Value investors also frequently use the P/S ratio. This metric is found by dividing a stock's price with the company's revenue. This is a popular metric because sales are harder to manipulate on an income statement, so they are often considered a better performance indicator. NOK has a P/S ratio of 1.12. This compares to its industry's average P/S of 1.31.

These figures are just a handful of the metrics value investors tend to look at, but they help show that Nokia and Viasat are likely being undervalued right now. Considering this, as well as the strength of its earnings outlook, NOK and VSAT feels like a great value stock at the moment.

Following Simo Vuorilehto's appointment as CEO, a major restructuring was planned. With 11 groups within the company, Vuorilehto divested industrial units he deemed as un-strategic. Nokian Tyres (Nokian Renkaat), a tyre producer originally formed as a division of Finnish Rubber Works in 1932, split away from Nokia Corporation in 1988. Two years later, in 1990, Finnish Rubber Works followed suit. In 1991, Nokia sold its computer division, Nokia Data, to UK-based International Computers Limited (ICL), the precursor of Fujitsu Siemens. Investors thought of this as financial trouble and Nokia's stock price sank as a result. Finland was now also experiencing its worst recession in living memory, and the collapse of the Soviet Union, a major customer, made matters worse.

Nokia is a julkinen osakeyhtiö (public joint-stock company) listed on the Nasdaq Nordic/Helsinki and New York stock exchanges.[7] Nokia has played a very large role in the economy of Finland,[190][191] and it is an important employer in the country, working with multiple local partners and subcontractors.[192] Nokia contributed 1.6% to Finland's GDP and accounted for about 16% of the country's exports in 2006.[193]

To be sure, on occasion, there have been signs of progress. Nokia stock has posted fairly regular rallies, and the business has shown signs of driving consistent growth. In 2017, for instance, adjusted earnings per share increased 50% year-over-year. The following year, profits declined, and in 2019 NOK plunged 36.2%.

Nokia denied a media report that it's in acquisition talks with Juniper Networks, a maker of communications networking gear that saw its stock surge 18% when the deal report surfaced earlier in the day. 041b061a72
