Fundamentals will still matter: asset sales will need to continue and key contracts will need to be won by the company. Progress on its cost cutting will also need to reduce the expense burden on Alcatel-Lucent’s balance sheet. Alcatel-Lucent is at a yearly high and just reached a share price not seen since July 25, 2011. Momentum could support a further price rise, but investors who missed the rally could wait for a pull-back before establishing a position in the company, or keep an eye on competitors like Nokia.
