    Porsche with pedal power?
    Makes me really wonder when the only significant uptick in PPS is caused by infusion of stock buybacks from the company.

    I saw this but the stock is not performing even under the previously established buyback scenario. This year has been a loss on this stock. The next dividend increase is scheduled for March 2015. What would help is if they did it in Dec rather than wait. A few years ago, they bumped it up a qtr earlier. This stock needs all the help it can get.

  • United Technologies Corp. said Wednesday it would be sending more of its profits back to investors by expanding its share buyback program.
    The Hartford-based parent company of Pratt & Whitney, Sikorsky Aircraft and Otis Elevators expects to spend an additional $100 million on its share repurchase program on top of the $1.25 billion it planned to do all along.
    The investment comes as the company's share price has fallen from record highs of $120.09 in June to a yearly low of $99.94. The price has slowly recovered, trading Wednesday at $109.09 on the New York Stock Exchange.
    Last year, United Technologies repurchased $1.2 billion of its stock. The company held off on buybacks in 2012, the year it closed on its acquisition of Goodrich Corp. for $16.5 billion. Before that, United Technologies spent $2.175 billion in 2011 and $2.2 billion in 2010 on share repurchases.
    United Technologies also on Wednesday raised its expected sales marks for the year. In a March investor presentation, Chief Financial Officer Greg, J. Hayes said the company expected to have $64 billion in sales for 2014. On Wednesday, before another meeting of investors, the company said it should see $65 billion in sales.
    The new marks line up closer to what Wall Street expects to see the company report in January, when fourth-quarter and full-year results are due. A survey of analysts expects sales of $65.5 billion. Wall Street also expects per share earnings from United Technologies of $6.85, which lands on the very top end of a range the company reaffirmed Wednesday of $6.75 to $6.85 a share.
    Last year, United Technologies reported net income of $5.7 billion on sales of $62.6 billion.

    Rheem Waterheaters - UTX

    by meteorbyte Aug 24, 2014 9:30 PM

    flyer, .......Certainly personal experience is important and helps you make future choices. I have bought a few items from Lowe's, name brand dishwasher, kitchen range and dryer, fortunately, I have had no problems. What I like about Lowe's is that they stock the items witch are available for immediate pickup or delivery. Another topic, avoid Direct Buy, they're a scam. I reluctantly attended their pitch in Tampa. The joining fee was $4,900. and had to be purchased immediately. After the pitch was over, we were asked to wait in the next room for a personal discussion. We looked at one another and decided to walk out the door, which I had to unlock........Kid

    Rheem Waterheaters - UTX

    by meteorbyte Aug 24, 2014 9:30 PM

    kid, I am aware of Sears'/Kenmore approach. But, Sears is not Home Depot or Lowes. I have first hand experience with the difference (unfortunately). And I was told by a friend who works for a wholesaler that products made for HD and L are made to be cheap...the emphasis is on price. Try this: Go to a HD, get the model no. from a GE dish washer, for example. Then try to find that model either on GE's website or at an independent retailer. It will be as if the model doesn't exist.

    In its advetisements Stihl, maker of power tools, etc. emphazises that "There is a reason why our products can not be found at Home Depot or Lowes". I am not suggesting that 100% of the products sold at HD or L are made to different specs....but many are. I've been burned and I know why. If it has "moving parts" or parts that "wear" I will not buy from HD or L.

    Rheem Waterheaters - UTX

    flyer,.......Having two production lines for the same product like a refrigerator would seem to be a logistical nightmare. Whirlpool makes many Kenmore appliances, parts are interchangeable. Like Buick, Oldsmobile and Chevy, just minor cosmetics and different nameplate. The upscale is in the appointments, mechanically, there is little difference. BTW, GE is looking to sell it's appliance business. I don't think GE knows what it wants to be when it grows up. I still don't like paying more taxes than GE does.......Kid

    What would concern me is buying any product having moving parts from either Home Depot or Lowes. Companies,,...even major companies like GE,...make products specifically for those big box stores to the specs and cost requirements of the the stores. They are not the same products you'll find from the same manufacturers at independentlly owned stores and wholesalers. To meet cost targets corners have to be cut.

    meteor..(.Rheem Manufacturing Company is an American privately held manufacturer that produces residential and commercial water heaters and boilers, as well as heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment).....................Rheem has no connection to UTC.......Kid

  • was at home depot and saw Rheem water heaters.
    i believe Rheem air conditioners are still a subsidiary of UTX,
    but can someone tell me who makes Rheem water heaters
    which is now the predominant water heater sold by Home Depot.
    the Haitian floor guy said General Electric owned it, but
    i figured that was wrong... the I-Net indicates Rheem waterheaters are
    manufactured by an Australian company.
    IF you know the facts, please share.
    (am assuming Rheem Air Conditioners are still a subsidiary
    of UTX). ThankYe, H.

  • welcom to UTX board, G2

  • I actually own UTX, currently my biggest holding in my portfolio. I was good if it went back to 120. That's what I am hoping for long-term - end of the year. I do not want to set my sights too high ....

  • ARe you folks new to watching UTX?

  • Don't know about the $135, but it sure looks like a bargain at this price, just under $110.

  • Predictions for $135 per share into 2015
