NO... These people have NOTHING TO DO with honesty. Class Action Security Lawyers are a scourge on society. It amounts to NOTHING more than greenmail... just how much they can squeeze out of a company. The class shareholder NEVER recovers much more than about 20 cents on the dollar, of WHAT THEY ARE LEAD TO BELEIVE, joining the class. The ONLY figures that are fixed and real, are the Lawyers' fee amount, and processing charges... The shareholders, are once again, left holding the bag, with excuses that the size of the class was MUCH larger than anticipated and YOUR recovery amount has been adjusted accordingly... It is a lose, AND LOSE AGAIN, for the shareholders. The lawyer's fee SHOULD be capped at, let's say, 100 times the maximum recovery of an individual class member. It would minimize the frivolous nonsense
what about 'W' and his WMD prose??? Seems to me, that has gotta be right up there.
NO ONE is going to be interested in this stock until it is clear the management is a little more concerned about EXECUTING, for what they get ALREADY getting paid for, instead of sprucing up their retirements. What has been allowed to perpetuate, is a CRIME. These people do not have the ability, talent, or drive to run this company... and they PROVE IT, over and over again, on a daily basis. The BODs provide absolutely ZERO VALUE to the shareholders.
"They will be working harder and smarter this coming year." - Too LATE ... Laub and the BODs NEED to go... Tell me NEXT year, is going to be ANYTHING different, that has failed to materialize over the past seven.... Wake up ... these people MAY BE just fine human beings... CEO material??? hardly.
you know Walt, if you would consider posting under a SINGLE ID, EVERYONE could tell, if ALL your 'premonitions', are as accurate as the ones you made on UTX. See then, you wouldn't need to repeat yourself, and suffer unnecessary additional embarrassment.... just a thought however.
you're an alright guy...Your sense of humor should serve you well in bad, as well as good times.
I WISH I could believe you. See, I AM CONVINCED, Laub remains where he is, solely because of some external entity's plan. There is NO WAY, any sincere, intelligent, collective, who is working in the best interest of the future prosperity of this company, and the welfare of ALL of its shareholders, would have allowed this to continue for so long. I am NOT talking about executive salary's ... I am talking about compensation that is SUPPOSEDLY tied to performance. If that was the case, EVERY shareholder should be sent a check. The share buyback exists for ONE reason.... It hides the pilfering.
and all the unbridled enthusiasm... There was a lot of talk about prying shares from her dying grip. The current participants aren't nearly as colorful.. I think they all got 'PLUG'ged
144.99$ !! I WISH! ... but I get your point. I think Thursday will be pinnacle. In the short term (prior to 2015Feb), I think we have smooth sailing... I am glad I didn't look at those 'charts' that were WRONG for the first time EVER!!

NEITHER of these transaction groups did a darn thing to benefit the shareholder base.
It certainly didn't reward exceptional execution. It did NOTHING but waste 'buyback' funds to
enrich a few... and the shareholders are suppose to just tolerate this behavior?
The REAL question is WHY the BODs do!? ... draw your own conclusions.
This is shameful.
another red letter day for Stevie, and his cronies... I will never forget the post, at the beginning of the year, applauding Laub, and making the argument that we all owed him praise & thanks. Throughout yet another wasted year, it NEVER gained a bit of credibility...
so much for "due diligence"
you don't seem to get it... Some member of Congress's bother-in-law ALREADY services THOSE needs... at a price... There is NO WAY they are going to willing to give up THOSE sources of revenue.
I will give you a hint... Put "abalest1" on ignore... He is an imbecile with more time, than brains... and most likely, personal hygiene.
Look, I am happy to be over ~8.50, but it bothers me that remaining mid-9s seems to be so difficult. I don't understand the specifics of those 12.7M shares... I HOPE the proceeds are used judiciously...
