On Friday, Nokia shares got a rating upgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs.
Analyst Alexander Duval boosted rating on the company’ stock to buy from neutral. Duval also hiked his price target to $6.50 from $4.90. This is the highest target of analysts tracked by Bloomberg.
The analyst cited a better 5G spending backdrop, wireless product progress and market-share gain from Chinese vendors such as Huawei, especially in Europe, as factors behind the improved outlook.
In March, Nokia announced a five-year deal with AT&T. As part of the deal, Nokia will provide its latest fifth-generation equipment to power 5G on AT&T’s C-Band network.
