Sales would be down 6.32 percent from the year-ago period. Here's how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

 

Quarter Q1 2018 Q4 2017 Q3 2017 Q2 2017
EPS Estimate 0.04 0.11 0.06 0.05
EPS Actual 0.02 0.16 0.11 0.09

Over the last 52-week period, shares are down 4.84 percent. Given that these returns are generally negative, long-term shareholders won't be happy going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already enjoying 12-month gains prior to the announcement.

Over the past 90 days, analysts have adjusted their estimates lower for EPS and revenues. Analysts generally rate Nokia stock as Neutral. The strength of this rating has maintained conviction over the past three months.
