UTX is at $107.76 real time, up $1.06. I saw a sign on a lawn in Hyannis a few days ago, "Pick up your dog poop, I don't like mowing it and it's the law". I'm going to make a sign like it, except, it will be bear poop and I'm going to take to the Lowell bomb shelter.
Also, December is when the dividend is scheduled to be raised (they said every 5 qtrs). If we see this climb several more points by Dec, they may announce the new dividend and the split at the same time. Then get out of the way. That is my wishful thinking.
This thing just keeps going? Sorry I sold so much but, according to my age, the "experts" say I had too much in my 401. The good news is that as it keeps going higher, so does the percentage in my 401. I see an Alaskan cruise in my future at about 115 per share.
While I cheer the raising market and UTX's better than market performance, the big brown furry beasts are still roaming the landscape. The politicians, for one, could take a 20% bite out of the whole of the market when they return from their holiday, if they can't seem to play nicely with one another vis-a-vis the Debt Ceiling, or the budget in general. (remember what happened a few years ago? I'm still smarting). IF we choose to count the FED as non-political, then the end of QE-xx (what are we at now?) will feed the bears too. Airborne, you did well to take some money off the table. (I did too) Note that we're back down a buck+ today, along with the market. What goes up will eventually go down.
