Nordea raised its rating on Nokia (NYSE: NOK) to Strong Buy from Buy, while setting a price target of €4.

Better availability of Lumia 820 and 510 models should rectify fourth-quarter shipment issues, Nordea said Friday morning. The firm sees Nokia showing off new product at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, on February 25, which includes a new flagship Lumia smartphone for Verizon (NYSE: VZ) as well as a Windows RT tablet.

Though Nokia's royalty commitments to Microsoft (MSFT) exceed remaining payments due, Nordea thinks there will be limited impact with Nokia not recognizing all payments received in its P&L statement.

Looking ahead, Nordea sees Nokia hitting a break-even point in the middle of 2013.

Into the open, Nokia is indicated back above the $4 level.
