    Nokia (NYSE: NOK) has been losing money in recent years; lots of it.

Faced with such big losses, and moving to strengthen their liquidity, the company decided against paying dividends to shareholders for 2012.

  • Natural Gas Is Overrated

    By Joshua Bondy - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, GE, SI

    In 2012, the United States added 13.1 gigawatts of new wind capacity, beating natural gas. These new additions were partially driven by uncertainty over government tax credits, but nevertheless, 13.1 gigawatts of new capacity is significant. With natural gas prices rising, America is waking up to the fact that it has a huge wind resource right in its backyard.

  • Is General Electric a Good Buy?

    By siraj sarwar - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: GE, SI, UTX

    Industrial companies with a diversified product line are an indicator of how the world economy is developing. In 2012, such companies experienced a slowdown in their organic revenues but did continue growing in the United Sates. Unfortunately, growth in Europe was mostly negative. The first and second quarters of 2013 brought more stabilization to the market, however, and showed that market demand is set to increase.

  • A leaner General Electric means business

    By Awais Malik - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: GE, SI, UTX

    Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Rightly so, General Electric (NYSE: GE) has long been on course of changing things around.

    The story of a company that's trying to turn around usually takes on a familiar tone. Tell me if this sounds familiar, “(we are taking) actions to enhance our balance sheet and capital allocation flexibility and exiting some non-strategic businesses.” Let me translate, we don’t have enough cash flow, we need to cut our debt to get out of trouble, and selling some of our businesses is the more »

  • The Future of Coal Today

    By Reuben Brewer - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: DUK, GE, SI, SO

    Coal, one of this country's most abundant fuels, is increasingly being targeted as a dirty fuel. That doesn't have to be the case because the technology to “clean” coal exists today.
