    I’m thinking about buying

    Perhaps I should ask for ten reasons to sell right now. There appear to be a number of sellers lined up at eighty cents (who is dumping, hmm) hence the price is definitely headed into the seventies. Rather than ask for a good purchase price the better question is “how low will she go?” The charts seem to indicate a much lower bottom. Is there anything coming that will support the sixties, seventies and beyond or should I just wait for it to get back to forty cents again?

    But the recent selling pressure indicates continued downward movement until the next big event.

    If you are a shareholder then please help me out.

    What are your top ten reasons to hold or buy right now?

    And when do you expect the next catalyst to kick in?

    One more, what is a good purchase price?

    Thank you in advance!

    Check the net for a break down of the components in the iPhone. You will find that it is loaded with chips made by Infineon.

    Good luck

    Why wait in line at a store when they will ship it overnight (for free) to your house or office and you'll receive it the same day without waiting in line?

    iTunes make the setup trivial so why wait hours at the store?

    If you must go to the store then you should setup an appointment and avoid the lines... It could be hours before it get to the front!

    Sponge started moving by pennies when it broke ten cents

    We could see half cent moves after it breaks five cents

    Give it time

    Lots of cheap companies out there:

    Philips - many of the parts are worth owning (for example Color Kinetics), GE could strip the company and dump the carcass

    CREE – LED lighting is the wave of the future

    IPGP - lasers are hot and have all kinds of medical uses

    IIVI - military grade lighting components

    Just a few to think about while the owners are bruised and beaten by today’s market conditions

    Lots of cheap companies out there

    GE - na, too big, too much debt, aka the Titanic

    CREE - they already own number one (ColorKinetics) why not drop a load on number two and corner the market

    IPGP - lasers are hot and have all kinds of medical uses

    IIVI - military grade lighting components

    Just a few to think about while the owners are bruised and beaten by todays market conditions

    This may actually apply to GSI

    "China’s State Council, or Cabinet, approved measures to boost the equipment-manufacturing industry, "

    "including increased use of domestic-made parts in major construction projects. "

    "The government will increase spending on technical upgrades and boost credit support for exports, it said in a statement yesterday. "

    "China pledged 4 trillion yuan ($584 billion) of spending to revive economic growth in November"

    A few items from today’s press that Cramer alluded to in his show:

    Feb. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong stocks rose for a second day after China announced new stimulus measures, stoking expectations the nation will be able to revive economic growth.

    China Railway Group Ltd., Asia’s biggest construction company, added 3.6 percent after the country’s government pledged to support the manufacturing industry. China Cosco Holdings Co. added 4.7 percent after cargo rates climbed. Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. led banks higher after saying it extended $36.9 billion in new loans in January, while the Purchasing Managers’ Index, a measure of manufacturing activity, improved for a second month.

    “Stocks continue to be lifted by speculation more stimulus measures are on the way,” said Michiya Tomita, a Hong Kong- based fund manager of Chinese stocks at Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management Co., which oversees $61 billion. “There’s a growing perception that China’s economy will recover surprisingly fast.”

    China Railway added 3.6 percent to HK$4.66. China Shenhua Energy Co., the nation’s biggest coal producer, jumped 4.7 percent to HK$18.22 as the stimulus measures boosted the outlook for power use. PetroChina Co., the nation’s largest oil company, climbed 1.9 percent to HK$6.02.

    China’s State Council, or Cabinet, approved measures to boost the equipment-manufacturing industry, including increased use of domestic-made parts in major construction projects. The government will increase spending on technical upgrades and boost credit support for exports, it said in a statement yesterday. China pledged 4 trillion yuan ($584 billion) of spending to revive economic growth in November.

    Bank of Communications Ltd., China’s fourth-largest by value, climbed 4.4 percent to HK$5.26. China Construction Bank Corp., the second largest, advanced 1.3 percent to HK$3.99.

    China Cosco, the world’s largest operator of dry-bulk ships, rose 4.7 percent to HK$5.56. China Shipping Development Co., the nation’s largest oil carrier, gained 2.4 percent to HK$8.60. Pacific Basin Shipping Ltd., Hong Kong’s biggest dry-bulk line, climbed 5.2 percent to HK$4.84.

    The Baltic Dry Index, a measure of shipping costs for commodities, rose 15 percent yesterday, the most since at least 1985 on speculation demand for raw materials is picking up as companies have run through their inventories.

    Ping An Insurance (Group) Co. (2318 HK) soared 7 percent to HK$36.10. UBS AG raised its rating on China’s second-largest insurer to “neutral” from “sell,” saying the current share price already reflects the “uncertainties” of its premium growth.

    Zijin Mining Group Co. (2899 HK) rose 4.5 percent to HK$4.40. China’s largest gold producer said yesterday profit may have increased 17 percent last year to an estimated 3 billion yuan after bullion and copper prices maintained a “high level” in the first three quarters.

    Speaking of baby boomers, is Obama too young to be a boomer?

    Or did he just slide across home plate?

    Or a dot boom?

    NOT !!!!! Look how excited they are on CNBC

    Markets just gave up the majority of its gains for the day

    And CNBC reporters could not be happier

    Smiles, Smiles everyone... "Gosh, we just gave up much of the recover"

    GE pushes doom and gloom through their media units which is why
    so many of their reporters continue with their capitulation mantra.

    They have helped create a large amount of the fear in today's market
    and helped cause the sell off.

    Everyone knows that earnings will be weak, jobs will be lost, and
    housing will continue to have a bad time... But this is already
    baked in the market

    Enough with the capitulation, enough with the fear

    Part 2: From an unknown author...

    M.. How about the complete religious,
    social and political freedoms we enjoy that are
    the envy of everyone in the world?
    Maybe that is what has 67% of you folks unhappy.

    Fact is, we are the largest group of
    ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever
    seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S. , yet
    has a great disdain for its citizens. They see
    us for what we are. The most blessed people in
    the world who do nothing but complain about what
    we don't have, and what we hate about the
    country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.

    I know, I know. What about the
    president who took us into war and has no plan to
    get us out? The president who has a measly 31
    percent approval rating? Is this the same
    president who guided the nation in the dark days
    after 9/11? The president that cut taxes to
    bring an economy out of recession? Could this
    be the same guy who has been called every name
    in the book for succeeding in keeping all the
    spoiled ungrateful brats safe from terrorist
    attacks? The commander in chief of an
    all-volunteer army that is out there defending
    you and me?

    Did you hear how bad the President is
    on the news or talk show? Did this news affect
    you so much, make you so unhappy you
    couldn't take a look around for yourself and see all the
    good things and be glad? Think about
    it......are you upset at the President because
    he actually caused you personal pain OR is it
    because the 'Media' t old you he was
    failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind every day.

    Make no mistake about it.
    The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have
    volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have
    died for your freedom. There is currently no
    draft in this country. They didn't have to
    go. They are able to refuse to go and end up with
    either a ''general'' discharge, an 'other than
    honorable'' discharge or, worst case
    scenario, a ''dishonorable' 'discharge after
    a few days in the brig.

    So why then the flat-out discontentment
    in the minds of 69 percent of Americans?

    Say what you want but I blame it on the
    media. If it bleeds it leads and they
    specialize in bad news. Everybody will watch a
    car crash with blood and guts How many will
    watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The
    media knows this and media outlets are for-profit
    corporations. They offer what sells, and when
    criticized, try to defend their actions by
    'justifying' them in one way or another
    Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like
    O.J. Simpson to write a book about how he didn't
    Kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it
    this way......Insane!

    Turn off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New
    York Times for the bottom of your bird cage.
    Then start being grateful for all we have as
    country. There is exponentially more good than
    bad. We are among the most blessed people on
    Earth and should thank God several times a day,
    or at least be thankful and appreciative.'
    'With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of
    control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing
    up the country from one end to another, and with
    the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks,
    'Are we sure this is a good time to take God
    out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'

    Everyone reading this thread should send a letter to GE's Investor Relations team

    It might not help, yet Investor Relations will understand the idea and may even see the long term benefit for GE's stock
