Nokia Stock Forecast: 2 Strong Reasons To Go Long Nokia

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Nokia’s stock has a 6-month price return of 10.22%. I am still endorsing it as a buy.
  • Like Ericsson and Cisco, Nokia is also an obvious beneficiary of the US-led anti-Huawei campaign. Discrimination against Huawei is a tailwind for Nokia.
  • Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent has 5G infrastructure solutions and network routers and Ethernet switches. Huawei has been growing at the expense of Nokia.
  • The other tailwind for Nokia is HMD Global’s recent unveiling of new smartphones. The Nokia 9 PureView is the world’s first penta-camera handset.
  • The Nokia 9 PureView is a flagship handset raised the global brand power of Nokia phones.

Micron Stock Forecast: Why Micron Is Still A Worthy Investment

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • With stronger factory production available, average selling prices of DRAM and NAND flash is down this year.
  • On the other hand, the increasing default RAM and flash storage of new smartphones and computers is still a strong tailwind for Micron.
  • More RAM and flash storage are needed because smartphones now can play PC-level video games. Smartphones are now also decent HD video camcorders.
  • The higher margins possible on 8GB/12GB RAM modules helps offset the lower spot prices of RAM.
  • Micron is an industry leader in DRAM and NAND storage products. Sadly, it is still being undervalued compared to its semiconductor industry peers.

Microsoft Stock: Strong-Arm Tactic Will Compel Windows 7 Holdouts To Upgrade

Microsoft Stock:

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Windows 7 was released almost 10 years ago. Microsoft stock has a headwind from the fact that Windows 7 still touts more than 36% market share.
  • Microsoft failed to meet its target of 1 billion devices on Windows 10 partly because many business and home users refused to upgrade from Windows 7.
  • Windows 7 support will end on January 24, 2020. Only volume licensed Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise versions will get paid extended support.
  • The expensive fees that Microsoft will charge Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise volume license owners will force them to upgrade to Windows 10.
  • I commend this strong-arm tactic of Microsoft. Microsoft is better off when most Windows 7 users are compelled to upgrade to Windows 10.
