Hey bonehead, 3D printing has already "printed" a minature, LIVING LIVER...google it since you seem smart enough to do so. Oh and hey, guess what, those farmers you're talking about, well, they might end up 3D printing their chickens and eggs...........hammer that one onto your rearend like an unwanted tatoo because YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF ! LMAO! Clearly YOU dont understand this disruptive technology....why don't you try reading up on medical apps, aero,nautical apps.....etc., etc.!?
Oh and when you see that CRAFT person MAKING jewelry at the local MALL during the Holidays.....please say to yourself GEE, I should'a done my homework and bought some 3D printer since they are THEEEEEEEEEE disruptive technology entering the frey......................better yet, sit on your thumb! LMAO!
A renaissance in US manufacturing is fast approaching thru 3D PRINTING....this disruptive technology requires ENERGY and, raw or fabricated material sources (that also use oil/ng actually in the product, example, plastics today). However, the 10 ton elephant in the room is manufacturing overseas! China is just getting started so proliferation of said 3D manufacturing is probably 2 years away and, this technology will ramp up with time to meet demand of new applications, larger applications etc.
Not to overlook demand at the consumer level from home hobbiests, crafters, etc.
This bodes well for the US with its abundance of NG but it is also a GAME CHANGER because as transportation demands continue to increase (and we are just now scratching the surface demand wise for NG) we now see manufacturing at all levels increasing and in some cases, returning to the US.....for instance DDD makes via 3D pritning, items for GE/NIKE, and soon GOOGLE!
While the 3D craze is just now getting headlines, the consumer is still a demonstration (at a craft show or some similar event) away from believing the potential of 3D printing!
ENERGY demand will parallel this growth especially as the auto/truck industry begin to seriously ramp up their hybrid gasoline/NG vehicles such as the 2014 GM Impala and the F 2014 F150........this bodes well for the energy industry, and SD should benefit as well, and perhaps in a bigger way than is currently understood, IE.................its all about the assets!
Soon craft shows, jewelry stores, auto parts/garages...and countless other end users will educate the American consumer to this DISRUPTIVE technology! Assembly lines across our manufacturing will mainly be tightening this component or adding/tightening that component (all made mind you, by 3D printers). This brings manufacturing BACk to the US in large part and it also means cost of the finished product will be less assuming friendly energy costs AND..the raw materials involved.
it seems many 3D printers have their own proprietary materials so this would lead the next generation printers in the future at some point.
Meantime the DEMAND for natural gas/oil (and other natural resources) will continue to feel upward pressure as this radical new technology takes root from coast to coast. Hewlett is also going to enter the game, this is right up their alley, a proprietary material hog like HP once did with their ink................well, the consumer product will be a give away like todays printers and the cost will be for the materials just like printer ink cartridges are today!
Enjoy the price run, at some point proliferation will take over but I think we have an easy 2 years before thos occurs. Meanwhile we will continue to hear of more corporations like GE, NIKE (both who already use DDD 3D printers) and MOMENTUM PRICING will drown out skeptical shorts who are once again, wrongly focussed on the MICRO instead of considering the MACRO and this new DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY!
Gee, do you think people can start making their own simple boats now! Its coming! How about drones? One guy already 3D printed himself an AR-15! Except for size and materials, there are ZERO LIMITS to what 3D printing can do! One company is even printing live organs! COME ON! Seriously!
This is an unbelievable technology. All IMHO of course!
or covered call writers grab their paddles and start covering forcing FB price up OVER the hump at 51!
LMAO! I have to ask the covered call writers......is your finger a twitching? I only ask because getting monetarily swallowed a few days before expiration is, well, painful, you lose cash, you lose you stock.......OUCH!
pathological loyalty is a dangerous but welcome characteristic of you lefties!
Jokebama wants to emulate Mandela!/ LMAO! Maybe he and his RACE PIG friends like OPRAH, JACKSON, and SHARPTEN should all stop thje preaching of hate through their words and their actions. Trayvon/Zimmerman comes to mind......the BEER SUMMIT Obama was FORCED to have in order to save face.....it never ends with the RACISTS on the left. Rev Wright is the epitomy of leftwing hatred of whites and the irony on the SOUTHSIDE SLUMS of Chicago is that msot af. American kids have no reason why they hate whites except that this is how they were rasied by good ole Mom the meth monger and Dad who is in prison or buried somewhere.
OBAMA is a two faced beotch when it comes to race......he and his circle of black hooded Knights mentioned above have done far more to HARM RACE relations than to help the situation. Why not TELL EVERYONE to do away with their race identity card? I mean a Southsider is a BLACK before he/she is an american or even a Chicagoan for that matter! HAAAALE, Rev Wright PREACHES IT!
In fact if anything, the black hooded knights mentioned above have started teaching whites to hate blacks where before, their was not friction.
Some DIKWEED hedgie or his friends have decided to play god and load up 17,000 contracts at 50 bucks...otherwise, the momentum would be running the price into the low to mid 50's.
Obviously someone is protecting a short while they unwind....................DIKWEEDS to the Nth degree and while its fun to watch hedgies fall on their own sword monetarily speaking, it isn;t fun when they end up REAR ENDING the Mom-n-Pops.........EFFFFFFFing hedge foks!
The first game I ever went to was at Soldiers Field///DA-BEARZ vs Packers...Bart Starr was the QB for the Packers....I was too young (grade school) to appreciate what I was watching but these cheeseburgers with ONLY mustard and onions were phenominal!
Ditka is old school....he played with Buffone//Butkus/Sayers and there are a few other big names I have forgotten...but he also gave us Payton, McMichaels/Hampton/Singletary/McMahon/the Fridge..and so many others.......Ditka taught what he grew up with, smashmouth no=nonsense Chicago Football....he was a Halas DREAM.....controlled violent collision rough and tumble football...on cruise control requiring nothing but a uniform....water....and food......same for Butkus and others.........these guys were the true Monsters of Midway......and Halas finally conveyed his style of football into a championship! .......I LOVE THE BEARS.....and it was about FRICKING TIME when 1985 rolled around.......I hope I see it happen again before I cash in all my chips so to speak!
On the otherhand, I am very happy to no longer live in Illinois/Chicagoland area with the OUTRAGEOUS taxes......ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY to tax payers for outrageous spending/pensions etc. Seems the Good Fellas became alittle TOO entrenched in the very (all the) fabric of everyday life in Chicago tilting the table toward themselves for decades and now the bill is due. Oh well.........the Land of Lincoln has become the Land of Thieves....bilking tax payers at every turn......unbelievable......my taxes in Nevada are literally a FRACTION of what they were/would be today, in Illinois.............anyways.....GO BEARZ !!!!!
Yes we are beyond the 30 day wash sale rule but its still tax time and hedgies and MMs are taking some tax losses (it seems) to offset some of the great gains 2013 has offered up in other names. IMHO.
Oil can keep going down and thats okay because we are cheaper than brent which means there is a market for US oil. However, i think all the talk about increased production rates and cheaper oil is foggy at best! While demand seems to be decreasing here in the US...it is increasing elsewhere as middle class consumers are being created daily! All IMHO of course..............
LMAO! I don't short stocks! I might write a call now and then but hey, if I could short your ego i would cause its goin down! LMAO!
Game of Thrones..........someday, at some point, these darling 10 to 15 show series are going to PO their audience to the point of SEE YA !
No communications, no time tables......and, when such a series somehow decides its going to skip a week, it does! Again.....no warning....no nothing.
The deliberate "get'em hooked and keep'em hooked" is starting to come across as an insult to fans who have been expected to show extreme patience and to tolerate either the deliberate confusion or worse, the "hey we'll get to it when we decide too" attitude that now seems to be at play amongst those putting these shows out.
The shows are great! The delay? NO. The break? NO...........and I for one, well I'm close enough to walk and say see ya! I don't need the games and in the case of HOB, i already pay for service, why the abuse TWX ?
LMAO! Most Democrats don't even know what inflation is and that is apparent based on their pathological tendencys to totally ignore inflation when they ask for outrageous pay hikes, entitlement hikes, etc., etc. Oh and outrageous punitive tax policies to pay for such hikes elsewhere!
No need to commment, just absorb it! LMAO! .......LMAO!
CON.T // I asked the gal at the counter why the online site said no deliveries to my location when it is so close because the site said that this store was carryout only! Then I saw 3-4 drivers over the next 25 minutes come in and annouce they were back!
I wasn't going to have it delieverd anyways but it raises a question about the site!? Maybe its the snow/ice from yesterday......but clearly, deliveries were being made............
Okay, 4 online orders over the last 3 months....between 2 and 4 itmes. Two of the trips were perfect! Online ordering felt good! However two trips met with one wrong item!
Todays trip, the 3 large/3 toppings so taking that into context, one would think whomever read the order and prep'd the pizza's would have been thinking three items per! But no, one pizza was erroneously made with only 2 toppings, that is the bad news, the good news is that the mistake was caught at the store by DPZ!
However, I stood there wating for a new pizza to be baked while the other two sat on the warming rack.
SO DPZ is batting 500 with my Family and 500 is Hall of Fame performance, IN BASEBALL ! 500 is terrible in the service industry. I can't help but say that a lack of attention to detail is at work here and of course in the food industry, THIS IS HUGE. Okay it's one store. I hope that it is one store. Two out of the 4 times I have used the online ordering (which Iike!) and the order still got...........well, you know!
I guess I would ask HOW HARD IS IT!? But apparently, it is hard enough or at least the checks and balances are hard enough that errors can slip through!
Having owned my own little restaurant operation "....a long time ago in a galaxy far/far away" there is nothing like serving up a tuna sub to someone who ordered a reuben which, happened NOT ONCE! So I guess I have a particularily hard time understanding the order flow and fail safes in the process. Again, the orders were all 4 online and 2 missed the mark!
Come on DPZ, turkey day is one day PER YEAR not everytime the store gets busy (which it wasn't when I arrived) ! Get it right! Or the advances you've made will surely be drowned out by a flawed process or perhaps this store I visit has the wrong person handling the details!
One final thing, the online site said deliverys were not made to my location...(1 mile from the store) when I got there after seeing 4 drivers come in and announce driver here!
Wink! Wink! Mr Tilson!
DDD to more than double revenues over the next 24 months.....this is THE NEW MANUFACTURING RENAISSANCE! This is what brings ALOT of manufacturing BACK TO THE US!
In case TILSON is reading these posts, which I doubt......I have to ask if he SHORTED MSFT way back when, following IBMs claim that they saw no place for the PC in peoples homes! LMAO !!!!!!
Tilson is obviosly underwater on this SHORT and crying for help! Guess he didn;t see the lazer red dot on his checkbook as the great god of equities pulled the trigger on him! LMAO!
Mr Cheyn, I appreciate your view on GE and yes, I have participated in the recovery. I'll leave your weak political association to my and I believe MANY SHAREHOLDERS question about GOING FORWARD.
To be sure, you make some GREAT points if one wishes to focus on THE PAST. An INCREASED DIV was PROMISED by Mr Immelt........and since you seem to be doing his talking by playing Message Board Gateguard, I'll ask YOU.
Where is it?
Yes, sit down...enjoy! GE is paying everyone but shareholders........BUT, I think its fair to assume we will see a DIV increase in 2025! Hope everyone makes it another 12 years because it is going to be a super celebration amongst we rusty ole shareholders......... .
