    Love GE...BUT I am so sick of...

    the butt munching going on at CNBC. CNBC anchors
    and reporters are so far up Welch and mangements ass
    that they are polyps on his colon! Yeah, it is a great
    stock, always has been. Yes, we all know about the
    meeting and the probable stock split. So, shut the
    F#^%-@p already It amazes me how they are quick to report
    any possible bad news on other stocks, but they are
    such chicken shits to do anything but hype GE. It
    needs no hyping. SHUT UP

    • You're correct, GE is probably worth $300B,
      although I think you're still a little high <G>.
      IMO, CNBC "soft" contribution is about $50B in market
      cap due to the relentless worldwide SPAM that FN
      provides, which is worth more to GE than all of the Madison
      Avenue ads that 'Bring Good Things To Life' plus all the
      SPAM of all the message boards on all the internet
      sites. I certainly would never bite the hand that feeds
      me (and my boss and his boss and...etc...) those
      awesome options. All things considered, it's probably not
      a lack of balls; it's simply "discretion" (and a
      flat on the Upper East side and a yacht and daily face
      time in front of a National audience and a 'cult' of
      Baby Boomer amateur brokers and...).

    • your a spineless worm!
      that's why jack gave you the ax!

    • From todays press

      `Our product line is unsurpassed in this industry and

    • I'm making too many mistakes today.
      Gonna go back to just lurking and not posting and give everyone a break.

    • glad you are gone sassman and keep your stock, too bad you didn't take a few more like you.Louie says, we still have too many duds here!

    • GE market cap is $300B+, not $500B.

      contributes about $200 million, at best, to the revenue line.
      Didn't make any money until recently.

      Squak makes
      fun of Barrons every week, even though they have a
      cozy relationship with Dow Jones.

      I'm afraid of
      JW and I don't even work there.

      television network provides billions to GE top

      GE Capital and Internet divisions are the future of
      the company.

    • With your 'I've been screwed' attitude, I am glad
      your gone. I have worked for GE for over twenty years
      and am glad I stayed. Sure, it ain't fun everyday and
      the work is sometimes frustrating, but, the folks
      that spend their time complaining instead of
      contributing are the biggest problem. If you were being
      'screwed' why did you stay as long as you did?? I would
      wager that a lot of other things are wrong in your life
      that are 'someone elses fault' as well!

    • Are you high?...they have a negative value,
      Sunbeam has no reason to exist....that company was
      fleeced by some seriously crooked management...the only
      company WORTHY of taking over the GE product divisons is
      Philips...BUT they got out of large appliances years ago,
      selling theirs' to Whirlpool, GE is too big in the market
      to get rid of either lighting or
      Appliances...Philips is the worlds largest "small" appliance
      maker,Whirlpool is the biggest "large" and, PHILIPS the worlds
      largest lighting company, it wouldn't be allowed, it
      would be a monopoly in lighting products, as it stands
      now Philips has something like 38% of the world
      lighting market, GE is second and Osram is third...the
      rest is picked up by the small, speciality makers...GE
      makes some great products, there is no reason to get
      rid of them, they are one of the most widely known
      brands in both products..

    • bull shit. JACK HAS VISION! he started my
      business, noryl ge plastics. how about those shares? i bet
      they made you a lot of money!

      well if you hate
      ge so much... sell your shares now....asshole
