    Burning Bridges

    What about how Sickorsky bent over the Canadians. Behind schedule, over budget. Now they have to give, at NO CHARGE the remainder of the Canadian S-92s to appease the DND. Hey Louie, have them get their $#$% together.

    A broker once told me that the time to acquire a stock is before it splits. The only thing a stock split does is to make that stock more affordable in smaller lots to many more people. True, you can buy 50 @ $100 rather than 100 @ $50 and everything is equal. But it is only a perception of more affordability. The people that buy before, get a little bump up. More than the people that buy after the split because many times after the split, the stock settles down rather quickly to a normal slow grind. Only my take on it.

    Kid- You are one of my favorite posters on this board because of your objectivity and perception. However, do not confuse youthful enthusiasm with desperation!

    Not now, I'm not. But nobody knows what evil lurks in our future. The Shadow doesn't even know. If the libs stay in control for another 6-8 years, the damage will be irreparable (sp).

    I have about 9 years worth of cash in income. If the market tanks bad, I am ready to commit to UTX and the funds. Worst case scenario- after I commit the cash (about 10% down from here), it keeps going down. I will keep putting in until no cash. I remember before Obama became president. I remember we had Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have Obama and no Hope and no Cash.

    The dividend is increased ever 5th quarter. Last year, they said they will continue to do it every 5th. I think Dec 2014 is when it is scheduled to go up.

    Rumor has it that the Nobama administration is trying to have Sam Adams taken off the market because it may offend liberals and foreigners. The name is too patriotic American sounding. They want the name changed to something like Acorn Ale or Demobrew.

    I pulled $5,000 out of UTX and into Income (3.25%). It has been a good run. The dollar amount still goes higher and higher just like that great Jackie Wilson song. I am loving this. Just bought a new car and could have it all paid off within the next 2 weeks - LOL!

    If the Dow makes a late day run, I will bet on 120+. Definitely 120 this week if the economic numbers are good.

  • This is not good. It appeared in the NH Register today. In my opinion, if the government decides to dig deeper into the books, they will be able to find more issues as far as billing. As a taxpayer, we are fortunate for the oversight. I feel the fines should be much higher to put the federal contractors on notice that improper billing will not be tolerated. BIG fines!

    Sikorsky Aircraft to pay $3.5M over claims of inaccurate prices
    By Luther Turmelle, New Haven Register

    STRATFORD Sikorsky Aircraft has agreed to pay $3.5 million to settle allegations that the company, which makes Black Hawk helicopters, failed to disclose accurate and current parts for prices, which resulted in the government paying artificially high prices for helicopter repairs for more than 3½ years.
    Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly said Monday in a prepared statement that the government alleges the company violated the “False Claims Act” through the submission of inflated costs for spare parts for work on helicopters in Corpus Christi, Texas, from February 2008 to September 2011. The government’s claim is that Sikorsky submitted the inflated costs to the Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command, which is one of the purchasing units of the U.S. Army charged with purchasing spare parts for the Black Hawk.

    “In this era of shrinking defense budgets, it is particularly important to guard the public coffers,” Daly said. “Failure to disclose accurate, complete and current cost and pricing data created an uneven playing field in the negation process, which tilted unfairly in Sikorsky’s favor.”

    Paul Jackson, a Sikorsky spokesman, said in a prepared statement that the company “is pleased to have reached an agreement to resolve this matter with the Army and looks forward to continuing to work closely with the Army to maintain its fleet of Black Hawk helicopters.”

    Do you know the difference between a recession and a depression? A recession is when your friends and neighbors are out of work. A depression is when you are out of work. You, I and thousands of others are experiencing depressions thanks to UTC. And, if they make the financial plan by laying people off, the managers get their incentive bonuses. We cope the best we can. God bless you.

    15% upside from Seeking Alpha

    airbornetrppervet airbornetrppervet Mar 25, 2014 9:55 AM Flag

    From Hugh Johnson who says the market rally to continue and this about UTX...............
    United Technologies (UTX)

    We’ll let Johnson take the last pick himself:

    “I’d say (United Technologies) is the best-managed company in the industrial sector,” Johnson gushes. “They understand that it’s all about return on invested capital. It’s been a real winner for us and my expectation is that it’s going to continue to be a winner.”

    Hopefully the same will be true for the market once these consolidation pains get out of the way.

    Just got the 2013 Annual Report. Sickorsky performed the worst in all categories (sales, profits, profit margins). Overall, UTC Aerospace & Pratt were the best. Otis had the best profit margins. They have got to dump S before no company will take them. They are a drain.

    CT is not much better. Just saw an article in the paper where teenage girls in the CT cities are giving birth at an increased rate over and above the state's average. Looks like the parents are failing miserably. I remember the good old days when the guys had all the tattoos and the girls had all the earrings and both parents contributed to their children's well being. The libs in CT are turning it into a $#@*hole.
