HELSINKI, Sept 25 (Reuters) - The following stocks may be affected by newspaper reports and other factors on Wednesday:

NOKIA

Nokia confirmed it will hold its "Nokia World" event in Abu Dhabi on October 22. Sources have said it is due to unveil new products including a large-screen "phablet" device.

The event was originally planned for late September, but was delayed following the company's deal to sell its handset business to Microsoft, a source said last week.

NORDEA SAMPO

The Swedish government said late on Tuesday it will sell its remaining 7 percent stake in Nordea to help reduce the national debt.

Price guidance for the sale has been set at between 75.50 and 76 Swedish crowns, a source familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.

A price at the middle of the range would represent a 4.4 percent discount to Tuesday's closing price of 79.2 crowns.

Nordea's biggest owner, Finnish insurer Sampo, said it would not participate in the sale.
