    • GE can keep it's 7.5% dividend if they so desire. The Analysts do not agree with Jeff's continued insistence to spend the limited cash in such a manor. There is no doubt that the AAA rating is in jeopardy.
      The rates GE is borrowing at have already conceded that.
      The dividend being cut would be the final straw, but is much needed.
      I understand why he does not want this to happen, but it is the only smart business move left.
      Income will undoubtedly decline closer to the $12.4 billion needed for the dividend. Airlines may not be able to obtain financing for their orders, Hospitals are in the same boat for medical equipment, Defaults on credit card debt have really yet to hit the income statements.

      Management is running scared and the challenge targets are not attainable.
      You decide.
      Should they waste their money on the dividend.
      Either way it is not a stock I want to own.
