Now What's Nortel Worth?

5:30 PM -- In light of today's carnage around Nortel Networks Ltd. stock, and because Phil Harvey is out of the office, I've taken it upon myself to update his "What's Nortel Worth?" chart.

The idea, back in September, was to compare Nortel's then-$1.5 billion valuation to peers, and to see what other companies were similarly valued.

Click the link above for the original, and look below for the update. Not for the squeamish.
