Greece, Italy, UK, Spain, Portugal..........they are all lazy work-forces and things are getting like that in the US. It is something we are all going to have to get use to. A country cannot have a large % of its WF retiring in their 50's and remain productive. We are becoming a nation of receivers and not achievers. I worked with the Brits & Italians and have family in Italy and the countries are headed for dire straits (not the band either)
Thanks for the Pratt info. I just printed out what you posted. When I go to the gas station or supermarket, I am going to show it to the cashiers / pump attendant and see how much I can buy with it.
Thanks. Pray for me. There are 2 jobs in this world where you can screw up bad and still get paid obscene compensation....ready?...........
CEO and TV meteorologist.
More brokerages are starting to cut their ratings on this stock - not good!
Hayes or you can spin it however you wish. A 3% increase is next to nothing for the stockholders. A big disappointment when compared to history. The 3% was disgusting!!
I was never a big Washington Redskins (oops! I mean Native American) fan but their coach George Allen once said "The future is now!" That is especially true for us old people. I do not have much of a future left. It would be nice to know that I can continue my bad habits until I die. Hayes better get going or go.
If it does not tank today, I am taking more off the table and putting it into the income fund. Have to be guaranteed income at my age. This stock used to be solid under the three preceding CEOs. I wasn't a super-fan of all of them but Hayes ranks 10th behind the other 3. How do you like that math?
Do you believe a 3.1% increase?! That is one of the most disgusting things that the BODs and a UTC CEO ever did. They should be ashamed. I was a fan of Hayes up until now. It is a #@$'n insult to the retirees, investors and employees (ESOP holders). Scrooge is running the show. That is pure unadulterated garbage.
What I do not understand is back in the 70's when we had the oil embargo from the A-robs the price of oil skyrocketed and so did everything else because we make everything using energy and the stocks went down because of it. Now oil is tanking (I love that pun!) and when it does, stocks go down. I see cheap energy translating into cheaper manufacturing costs, more discretionary income for business and civilians. I am clueless (a lot of people say that).
There is NO product, only screaming obnoxious showmanship. I do not understand why CNBC keeps him on board with his lack of credibility.
It seems that no matter what companies do, their stocks go down when the price of oil tanks (good pun!). That's insane because lower energy prices usually means decreasing expenses for major conglomerates. When oil shot up stocks went down. Now oil tanks and stocks go down. Someone explain this to me.
I took a little bit off only. I am still hoping for 110 this year. HOLD (hopefully will not be left holding the bag)
