Tomahawk, WI 02/12/2014 (BasicsMedia) – Any other company would probably be facing huge criticisms for selling its most profitable division to a different entity. Fewer companies can hope to survive if they sell what is essentially the lifeline of their operations, just as Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) did when it sold its phone making division to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). However, from the look of things, it appears that Nokia has already accepted this turn of events, and is now looking forward to newer and better possibilities now that it does not have to worry about phone making. Although Nokia’s topline growth is weak, as per the latest earnings report, investors have no reason to worry.

Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) will conclude the sale of its devices division to Microsoft in 2014. The deal was agreed upon in 2013, but a few details are yet to be ironed out, and one of these depends on getting the approval of the European Union. However, according to Wall Street analysts, this is the best time to invest in Nokia, because as it has proven in the past, the company has a way of getting back on its feet rather than falling off the technology industry. Although the weak topline growth would normally create a lot of anxiety in any company, Nokia is not alone in that most of its peers and rivals also posted similarly weakened growth levels.

Some of Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK)’s biggest competitors include Alcatel Lucent and Ericsson, and if you look at their topline growths, you will discover that they are not any different to what it posted. The weak topline that the company reported could be due to many factors, but it is not due to losses in shares, or a competitive landscape that appears to be devolving with each passing day. What this means is that investors have no reason to worry. Things are not as bad as they have been made to be by some analysts. Nokia is still in great financial footing, which will help it in raising the funds it needs to support growth and reinvest in other equally important areas.

For quite some time now, shareholders with investments in Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) had voiced their concerns regarding the lack of dividend from this globally recognized brand. According to the latest trends and happenings at Nokia Corporation, it is possible that 2014 could be the year when the company reinstates dividend. Nokia has reassured shareholders that it is wiling and able to pay dividends going forward, and there is no reason to doubt that the company will not make this a regular activity rather than a one-off. Once the company finalizes its deal to sell its devices division to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), it will have loads of extra cash that it can use in paying dividends.

In summary, despite the enormity of the deal between Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), the former appears unmoved and unworried. These are good signs that it believes in its value and ability to retain and attract better investor confidence going forward. The huge cash reserves that the company will have from this deal will also help in driving its goals and objectives forward.
