NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Peruse the headlines that ran in the wake of Nokia's ( NOK) dismal earnings report yesterday and guess the article you should you read most carefully: "Time Is Not on Nokia's Side" -- The Wall Street Journal. "Does Nokia's Gloom Spell Doom?" -- Motley Fool. "Nokia: Demand Still Falling, The Worst Is Still To Come" -- Forbes. "Nokia's Long Nightmare Continues" --- Zacks. "The Light at the End of Nokia's Tunnel" -- Motley Fool. If you guessed the last one, you're right. While the others predict various forms of hellfire and damnation for Nokia, the last headline is happy-faced. Why read it? Here's the only bit of acumen you need in the stock market: when the entire crowd is rushing headlong in one direction, entertain the possibility that the future stands in the opposite direction. It often does. In the case of Nokia, though, it does not. The positive Nokia article draws a dangerous parallel to Google's ( GOOG) slowly-unfolding though ultimately-successful creation of the Android operating system. However, Google is a far better operator than Nokia and it's nearly sacrilegious to put the two companies on a similar trajectory. Moreover, Google's several year buildup was largely due to the fact that they weren't in the phone business. Nokia already is. The article's claim that Nokia is gathering "some traction" of the Lumia phone is also misleading. The reaction to Lumia has been mixed (at best). Also, did you see those earnings? Nokia is going to need more than "some" traction to save itself. In other words, the article that took on prevailing thought was, in this case, wrong. But it should never pass unexamined. More often than not, it's right.
