On a YoY basis, RGDP is growing at 2.4% and NGDP is growing at 4%, far below the growth rates of the Clinton and Bush years. The low level of real growth reflects the low level of nominal growth, because you are not going to have 4% real growth along with 4% nominal growth.

Flush with cash after the sale of its handset division to Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Nokia's (NYSE:NOK) business transition is on the right track. The firm announced five acquisitions as it follows through on its five priorities. The stock is now trading firmly at yearly highs, but profit taking in the near term is possible. Once the selling pressure ends, investors could buy Nokia on the dip.
