airborne,......I think you may be correct about the spin. UTX now has a spin department, just like that cattle futures trader, Hillary Clinton........Kid
ROME, May 11 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Italian defence technology group Finmeccanica on Monday ruled out a move for helicopter maker Sikorsky, which its parent United Technologies is considering spinning off.
Mauro Moretti told Finmeccanica's shareholder meeting his group had received several propositions but was not interested in Sikorsky.
United Technologies is evaluating its options for Sikorsky and expects to reach a decision on whether to spin off the unit by the middle of the year.
sean,....................Can't offer much help since I have not studied all of the offerings. My 401-K positions are US large cap stocks, US small cap stocks and UTC stock. This has worked well, matching or beating the markets in general. There are ways to compare performance of the plan choices with graphs and data of past results. After the crash of 1987 when I got my chestnuts roasted, but, fully recovered by holding my positions, I tried to finesse my 401-K by moving into the fixed income fund to preserve capital. This backfired as the market rallied and I missed the gains. That was the last time that I was in the fixed income fund. My private brokerage account is more aggressive, I'm classified as a day trader. There I keep a close watch on my holdings and trade heavily. My best winners in 2015 include JBLU, CELG, FB and UTX......Kid
airborne,.......Very good day. My UTC 401K is up YTD more than the fixed income will gain for the full year. Of course, there is also more risk in my allocation. But, I know it and accept it. I sent the state of CT DRS copies of my Florida property title, driver's license, voters card and car registration and informed them that FL is now my primary residence. So, I do not expect to pay CT income taxes in 2015. FL has no income or estate taxes, good for my heirs when I clock out.......Kid
Lowell,.........That bear suit is getting stinky, you need a new agenda. Your thesis is getting repudiated by a market at record levels........Try getting a life, you may like it..........Kid
Even after four years of building Joint Strike Fighter prototypes, Pratt & Whitney is having problems managing the suppliers who provide 80 percent of the engine's parts, Government Accountability Office auditors say, creating a need for "substantial improvements in the global supply network."
Even more examples of Outsourcing resulting in failure after failure after failure.
Pratt and Whitney never had these issues when 100% of the Engines were built in East Hartford CT. Those were the good old days. Americans had jobs and these companies were successful.
dag, foo....Good to see that both of you can still fog a mirror held under your nose. Webrand is very passionate about his causes. I'm spending much of my time in God's waiting room.....Florida. where I look out at the Gulf. Favorable tax structure for both income and estate taxes in FL, zero.........KId.
grumby,.........A strong sell on $1.23 stock doesn't show much experience in the market. You don't short a $1.23 stock. The risk / reward ratio is not good. I recommend that you read Miss Manners to improve your social skills. Do you have a life?...........Kid
W2B, .......There you go again, exposing yourself. There is a difference between born and borne, check it out..........Kid
W2B,....."Your just some stupid old man with nothing better to do."......There is a difference between your and you're. Now, I need a tuition payment for educating you. When it comes to stupid, you win. I have plenty to do and I'm doing it and enjoying it. I read your posts so that I can defecate laughing .....Kid
W2B,...You still demonstrate a lack of class and a limited vocabulary. You never miss an opportunity to go ad hominem instead of presenting facts to support your agenda. The good news is that you have retreated from the UTX board, thanks..........Kid
airborne,...........How much is that doggie in the window?...........Pattie Page. I'll be rolling past SIK in a few days on I-95 for a visit to CT.......Kid
Being curious, I checked on most fuel efficient airliners. Data shows that the Lockheed 1049 (Super Constellation) and the DC-7 , both with propellers, are the most efficient for passenger miles per gallon of fuel, almost twice as good as today's best. They, of course, didn't have the speed or range of today's planes. I have flown the Super Constellation, very comfortable...Kid
