13-week gains: 80%
Nokia reports fourth-quarter earnings Thursday, but preliminary numbers for the period have been promising. The company sold 86.3 million total devices including 4.4 million of the new Lumia — more than a 50% increase for the quarter.
Nokia’s stock climbed along with the phone sales for an eye-popping total of 80% gains. That gives it a $4.70 price-tag compared to $2.56 at the start of this period and a 52-week low of $1.63 … but also could give it plenty of room to fall if true Q4 numbers aren’t as good as investors are expecting.
