1 Big Tech Dividend's New Road Map

On yesterdays edition of MarketFoolery, Motley Fool analysts react to Nokia's announcement that it will be entering into a digital mapping agreement with Oracle.

Jason Moser and Austin Smith believe that with ever-improving competition from better operators lincluding Google and Apple, the potential for Nokia to really make its maps division a meaningful profit-driver will be difficult, but possible. The division carries higher margins, but the company must reinvest substantially in R&D to keep the business viable.

For today, the tech crown still belongs to Apple. But after a big run-up in the share price and some headaches with its new maps app, many investors are wondering whether the company is still a good investment today. If you’re looking for a recommendation on how to play Apple, along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, our top tech analyst for Fool.com created a brand-new report that details when to buy and sell Apple.

    The competition is doing anything but improving.

    Ah no, the marketing crown belongs to Apple. Nokia has far superior technology. As does Microsoft.
