Why it Matters

Commenting on the second-quarter results, CEO Pekka Lundmark said: "We have had a strong first half and with our renewed competitiveness, we are well placed to deliver our full year 2022 guidance. There remain risks around timing of Nokia Technologies’ contract renewals, potential COVID-19 lockdowns and the supply chain which remains challenging but is showing signs of improvement."

"We are currently tracking towards the higher-end of our net sales guidance and towards the mid-point of our operating margin guidance as we manage ongoing inflation and currency headwinds," Lundmark stated.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, Nokia has a 52-week high of $6.40 and a 52-week low of $4.37.
