  • So all you people that are steadfast about S being a GREAT company. They made another GREAT decision............to layoff another 1,400 worldwide. A chunk of them in CT and PA. A lot will be production workers. Things are going great in CT and now GE, Aetna and Travelers are all threatening to leave if this state raises the taxes via the new budget. I wish I could bail like Kid.

    Certainly one thing he could do is split the stock this is long overdue and certainly might give it a shot in the arm

    I am thinking the first plan is the Sik. spin-off. That is a big event. I got word that there is a rumor that something happens in June. I also heard by the end of the year. Separate stock, etc.

  • Is Hayes going to do something or rather anything to get this stock out of the mud it's stuck!!

  • StockMarketVideot (Google them) chart analysis UTX as a possible double by year end!

  • Thanks for the encouragement,I am on the noresco side they make the most money/profit of any division. Love the perks=== private office laptop/ docking station monitor print/fax/scan/ also home access, car, credit card, gas card, easy pass, no time clock, set my hours, compensation, benefits, no travel(minimal) 30 miles or less a week.

To be continued?????????????????????????????????

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • lbi,.....You have a great influence on your job experience. Give UTC a good day's work for a good day's pay. Don't be a whiner. Max out your savings program when eligible. You probably wont be there for 40 years like I was due to many changes in the working environment at most companies. Some UTC companies are cyclical, e.g., Pratt and Sikorsky and there may be staff reductions at times where even good employees are released. Also, don't contract to build a yacht in Taiwan or marry a Swedish count / countess.....Kid

  • Hey peeps I will now monitor this board, so what should I expect ? One month in no problems super pay and benefits what;s the downside if any?????????????

  • TOULOUSE, May 28 (Reuters) - Planemaker Airbus is proceeding toward its year-end target for entry into service of a revamped A320neo despite problems with a small part on some engines, a senior executive said on Thursday.
    The problem involves the maturity of a "snap ring" inside the Pratt & Whitney engines for the first aircraft, which the engine maker plans to replace with a minor modification, Didier Evrard, executive vice president for programmes, told reporters.
    The ring is used to keep a seal in place.
    "We will not compromise on maturity at all; this would be a very short-term view and we will continue to push ourselves and our suppliers," Evrard said.
    But he said the company's target of delivering the first plane to Qatar Airways by the end of the year remained a "reasonable" one.
    A Pratt & Whitney spokeswoman said the engine maker was addressing the issue, which does not impact other versions of the Pratt engine, known as the geared turbofan, designed for use in other aircraft.
    "We are confident that the A320neo with Pratt & Whitney engines will resume flight tests soon, and we remain on track to support an entry into service in the fourth quarter of this year," the Pratt spokeswoman said in an emailed statement.

  • As the WSJ reported, ISS Proxy Advisory Services recommended Caterpillar shareholders vote against board member Juan Gallardo because he is on four boards and therefore "overcommitted". Our chairman, Ed Kangas, is on five boards and Chairman of two companies. What's up with that!?!?

    Praise for the GTF

    My apologies kid, I meant to say George David took over as Chairman and CEO in 1995. The return is 14% per year ($8 to $110 over 20 years), not 9%. The Augies hot dog index just became bitesized by comparison.

  • Now arriving in Middletown: The world's largest welding machine.
    Early Wednesday morning, the linear friction welding machine is expected to roll into Pratt & Whitney's Middletown assembly plant on the back of a 19-axle, 200-foot-long flatbed truck.
    Much as rubbing your hands together creates warmth, the welding machine vibrates metal parts and compresses them together until they heat up and fuse, making one of the strongest welds that today's technology can accomplish, the machine's manufacturer said.
    Greg Treacy, the general manager of Pratt's compression systems module center, has said that the machinery will cut how long it takes to weld airfoils, while increasing their quality.
    Altogether, the machinery weighs about 400,000 pounds — the equivalent of about three Abrams tanks — and is 20 feet tall. Pratt needed the world's largest linear friction welding machine, Treacy said, because of the size of the engine's fans and to account for future growth.
    The linear friction welder left Manufacturing Technologies Inc. in South Bend, Ind., on May 8.
    It was scheduled to arrive in Middletown on May 20 but sat for nearly a week at the New York-Connecticut state line, waiting out President Barack Obama's visits to New London and Stamford last week and the packed roads of Memorial Day weekend.
    Installation of the welding machine is expected to last until September.
    The welding machine is the latest purchase that Pratt has made to beef up its manufacturing and assembly facilities in the United States. In February, the company unveiled a new automated assembly line for its Middletown plant.
    Pratt, a division of United Technologies Corp., has plans to sharply increase its engine output over the next few years, as its latest commercial and military engine models see higher production rates.

    Praise for the GTF

    by jtt8989 May 26, 2015 3:49 PM

    jtt,.....I admire your youthful enthusiasm. George David entered the wheelhouse in 1992, since then, UTX has had three two for one splits. When you do the math, the stock price has been appreciating at an annual rate of 9%. Very nice, but, it tracks the Augie's hot dog index. So, you get nearly the same number of hot dogs for each share of UTX. I like it, but, it is not a rocket ship, BTW, the UTC board didn't think Louie's yacht was irrelevant. ........Kid

    Countesses and yachts are irrelevant. Shareholders and stakeholders are only interested in compounding stock gains and increasing franchising value. When George David took over, the stock price was around $8. When Chenevert retired, the price was about $110. Do the math and these market-crushing gains speak for themselves. Plus, the difference in franchise value is stunning. Currently, Pratt, Otis, Carrier, Fire & Security, Goodrich, IAE, GTF, etc. scarcely resemble what was before. Would anyone sell a share of UTC stock if future performance could come anywhere near past performance? Dynamic duo for sure!

  • Dear Abby,

    My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning and when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows that he cheats on me. It is so humiliating. Also, since he lost his job 14 years ago, he hasn't even looked for a new one. All he does all day is smoke cigars, cruise around and shoot the bull with his buddies, while I have to work to pay the bills. Since our daughter went away to college he doesn't even pretend to like me, and even hints that I may be a lesbian. What should I do?

    Signed: Clueless

    Dear Clueless:

    Grow up and dump him. You don't need him anymore! Good grief woman, you're running for President of the United States.

    jtt,.............".David and Chenevert were a dynamic duo - we need more like them.".....Maybe, but, with less emphasis on yachts and Swedish countesses. I saw Louie at the credit union on Main St, E. Hartford. He was crying his eyes out because of the low CD interest rate he would be paid on his $175.M package. The GTF technology was being worked by Pratt 30 years ago, pre David and Chenevert. But, the GTF needed advocacy, if Louie and GD were advocates, that's good. I'd like to see Augies and the pubs around Main St in East Hartford crowded again. I remember 15¢ hot dogs at Augies, now the same dog is $3.75 ...........Kid

  • Hayes praised the GTF program again! Six thousand sold engines proves him right. Thankfully Chenevert had the courage and vision to push GTF years ago. Also, George David deserves much of the credit for listening. Back then, who knew what a GTF was? If they had not invested $1 billion, Pratt would be out of a commercial airline growth business. David and Chenevert were a dynamic duo - we need more like them.
