Nokia Refutes Talk Of Microsoft Sale; Ticonderoga Likes It

01 June 2011

Shares of Microsoft ( MSFT ) have been under pressure this morning, and one thing appearing to contribute to downturn are rumors the company would step in to purchase Nokia ( NOK ) for $19 billion, according to remarks by Eldar Murtazin , a blogger widely credited with scooping Microsoft’s deal with Nokia earlier this year. Murtazin’s blog appears not to have that claim today, but he is cited as stating such by Todd Haselton in a piece this morning on BoyGeniusReport .

Shares of Research in Motion ( RIMM ) are taking it on the chin this morning, down $2.60, or 6%, at $40.25, as analysts continue to ponder the implications for the company following Nokia’s ( NOK ) reduced outlook yesterday.

For example, Jefferies & Co.’s Peter Misek today writes that average selling prices for the company’s wares could “collapse,” leading to an erosion of gross profit margin from 35% fiscal Q4 to 30% in the current quarter.

Posted on 01 June 2011

Truly stunning news broke yesterday when the mysterious wizards behind the curtain of our favorite annual music festival in the desert decided to announce just weeks after this year’s event that Coachella 2012 will be held over not one, but TWO weekends. Oh, and tickets for both go on sale this FRIDAY, as in two days from today.  This is peculiar for a number of reasons, but mostly because advanced notice isn’t really Coachella’s thing, and if you recall, didn’t even announce last year’s festival dates until the middle of August .
