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.
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

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

"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?
His hype has helped AEM stay above the rest
When a real recovery comes you might want to own a few that aren't already pumped up
Hey Charlie, did you find the golden ticket ?
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
Time To Start Healing
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
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
