that move is about 5 years too late .. .should have been boosting the div , and investing capital into
some business that can leverage their patent trove ... g
just goes to show how screwed up Jack Welsh's program was .. GE was tracking a Tyco path , just
lucky they didn't vaporize ... it still takes 1/2 an ocean to turn a super tanker .. GE on a good track , but
i'm not looking for great cap gains for at least another year .. good time to accumulate , especially if
one has faith that the div will be increased in a healthy manner ... g
he's got way too many lines in the sand .. pretty much all he has been doing is playing on the beach ...
so much for community organizers on the national stage , eh ?
the big money that moves stocks like GE doesn't have clear vision going forward .. that's pretty much
what you are dealing with ... about 4 years ago i started a position and sold in 2 months for 10% and just
ahead of the meltdown .. spent 3 three years watching and got back in last year with intention to buy
when i can until pps hits 30 .. i still see GE as a very good long term investment , expecting the div to
grow nicely and sometime get some nice cap gains ... i don't expect much dramatic action for at least
another year ... g
my guess is that once 20 of the top US companies get domiciled overseas that we'll see jobs here at home ...
either that , or the US govt will relocate to San Juan and we'll be on our own ...
thanks Rock , am very familiar with options , but they are separate market ,
i kind of guessed that there are traders , who when they see an options
move will trade their shares based on the indication that they perceive ..
i just wanted to check and see if there was some direct correlation ..
so when some guys see a lot of put action , that prompts them to
sell , in the believe that somebody knows something that they
don't and visa versa for the calls ...
sadly , that's the same for most .. the others are a bunch a guys throwing out headlines and platitudes , arguing
with one another and nobody synthesizes what actual data they do read ... sad , then those are the
same people who complain about everything from stock price to their personal lives .. g
i guess that if SYNc comes out at 20 and rises to 30 , while GE stays around 26 , then
you increase wealth with the swap .. i dunno , just going to have to watch ... the more
swaps that occur next year , the fewer shares outstanding for GE ... could be a good thing .. g
yup , if they haven't made it by now .. i still maintain that HAL is using NES as a "bridge" until they develop
their own fluids , or just riding it to BK , then buy up the scraps ...
How can anyone believe that NES has a partnership with HAL , when HAL doesn't put a dime into the
company ??? HAL gives NES some work, when they have it , and can turn it off in a heartbeat when
necessary ... good for HAL , destructive for NES .. g
i don't know .. i also don't know why some fired up nut hasn't shot Obama yet ..
