This Tech Turnaround Isn't Out of the Woods Yet

In the fast-paced, dog-eat-dog world of big tech, fortunes come and go quickly. One such example is the fallen star of French telecom equipment, Alcatel­-Lucent (UNKNOWN: ALU.DL  ) . The company's been through the wringer since its merger several years ago. With its shares having skyrocketed over the past several months, investors are hoping the company has finally regained its mojo after struggling through a harrowing turnaround process. However, it might not be that simple, as our tech and telecom analyst shows in the following video.

As many of us know, mobile could be a genuine opportunity for Alcatel-Lucent, because this revolution is still in its infancy in many ways, but with so many different companies it can be daunting to know how to profit in the space. Fortunately, The Motley Fool has released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that tells you how. The report describes why this seismic shift will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it and also names the company at the forefront of the trend.

    Once again, Motley Fools uses all the old news they can to try and scare investors away from Alcatel. We already know where Alcatel been. But now at a history low PPS, and new CEO in place with a direction that can put Alcatel back into profitability. Not to mention the huge newer contract they have accumulated sense 2010. This stock has nowhere to go now but up. Smart investors are buying shares and tucking them away knowing the possibility is huge for Alcatel to make a big turnaround.

    "Skyrocketed" in the past months? The shares have been stagnating between $1-$2 for a long time. How exactly is that "skyrocketing"?
