Nokia Corporation (NOK) which was up in the day’s early trading has ended the session at a loss of -28.4% to settle at $4.69. Like other businesses, in recent sessions, the telecom equipment manufacturer has risen while the value was on the front line of Reddit’s WallStreetBet forum, the American stockbrokers’ social network, which has been a lot of talk in recent days.
Nokia reacted in a statement issued yesterday in light of the sharp increase in its shares: Nokia is not aware of any significant and undisclosed new facts concerning the company, nor of any significant changes in its business or business that have not been made public and that would explain the recent increase in the price or volume of its shares.
