Meme Frenzy and Trading News: Nokia Surges, Fortum Strengthens, SRV Secures New Contract and Asp Makes Major Changes

Nokia, a well-known meme stock, experienced a significant increase in value on Tuesday without any specific news related to the company. The demand for meme shares appeared to have influenced Nokia’s rise as well. In other trading news, German investors’ confidence index exceeded expectations and producer prices in the United States rose more than expected in April compared to March, aligning with forecasts for year-over-year increases.

Nordea declined by 0.9 percent while Fortum strengthened by 1.8 percent on Tuesday. Martela and Ilkka also announced their results, with Martela reporting figures that fell short compared to the previous year but profits were better than expected. The impact of strikes shifted turnover into the second quarter, and the company anticipates a boost in demand during the summer season.

Construction company SRV secured a contract for a multi-purpose building project in Helsinki worth approximately EUR 56 million on Tuesday. Additionally, Asp announced plans to create two separate companies, Aspo Compounder and Aspo Infra, in the coming years.
