Nokia shares have jumped in recent days after an online community of individual investors piled into highly shorted stocks, with the aim of drastically driving up prices.
The campaign started after users on Reddit forum wallstreetbets saw that hedge funds were shorting GameStop (GME) to profit from perceived future losses.
To counteract, they rushed in to buy stock, quickly inflating prices far beyond what had ever been seen before. GameStop's stock surged from about US$17 a share to more than US$300.
Once the technique proved successful, users began applying it to other heavily shorted stocks, including Nokia. Shares climbed from a close of €3.39 on January 22 to a close of €4.40 on January 27.
However, several trading platforms were quick to take action, halting or restricting trading across a number of stocks. Nokia shares then dropped to a close of €3.82 on January 28th.
Although some platforms have now resumed trading, the market is still extremely volatile and traders should keep a keen eye on impacted stocks.
Nokia Corporation (NOKIA) is a leading communication equipment business with stocks listed in Finland. It opened the day at EUR€€4.336 after a previous close of EUR€€4.334.

How to buy shares in Nokia
- Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a company that's listed outside of Australia, you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to global stock markets. If you're just starting out, look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
- Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
- Search for Nokia. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: NOKIA. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
- Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Nokia reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
- Decide on how many to buy. At last close price of EUR€€4.511, weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Nokia, depending on your broker.
- Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Nokia. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights on directors and management that can affect your stock.

Is Nokia under- or over-valued?
Valuing Nokia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nokia's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nokia's PEG ratio
Nokia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.5287. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Nokia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nokia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is EUR€3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nokia's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
