well, for sure something is going on. March 4 CEO Jeff Immelt purchases $2.6m worth of stock in GE for a total of $3.6m so far in 2014.
According to CNBC, this is one of the largest insider buys by a CEO of a S&P 500 company seen over the past year.
The industrial segments should offset EPS declines from GE Capital's IPO.
GE is also a value stock, with impressive dividend growth and a large share buyback program.
I read it..what I'm concerned is earnings the consensus estimates is minus ( - 8 cents per share)
For first quarter 2014
"Adjusted EBITDA of between $20 million and $40 million, and earnings per share excluding stock compensation,
amortization of acquired intangibles, and acquisition-related expenses, net of tax, of between negative
$0.04 and negative $0.02.
Using a bit of coming sense. As we all know the Christmas and holidays sales were pretty good for GROUPON, most people buy gifts for family relatives and friends, but can Groupon break even or surpass sales with this quarter? Please straight answers no pipe dreams!
well, don't know where you come up with this? although I got this feeling that the DOW will reach 17000 within next month or maybe sooner., all the majors will pick up another 10% I covered last week.
It seems a take over is in the work!

Don't be a fool - the real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.
I would listen to Stifel, I never lost from their advise
"People may want revenue growth and the profit growth too," Lefkofsky said. "But like Amazon, you don't see that type of torrid growth without spending on marketing to attract customers to the top of the e-commerce funnel."
Groupon will spend the extra marketing dollars on search-related initiatives in areas such as search engine marketing and search engine optimization. This involves buying ads on common keywords used in searches on Google and Microsoft's Bing service and tweaking websites to try to make them show up higher in organic search results.
Lefkofsky also said Groupon would buy more display ads online.
"We expect over time not to have to invest as heavily," he said. Once people try out Groupon's new online deals marketplace a few times, the hope is that they will come back by themselves, the CEO explained.
An insider automatic stock sale is a plan (often called a 10b-5 plan) that provides that an insider will trade shares automatically in amounts and on dates set forth in the plan. It could be "sell 1,000 shares every Friday" or it could be very complicated (e.g. "sell 1,000 shares if the price hits $10 and the trading volume is at least 100,000 shares"). The reason for it is because insiders often can't sell because they have insider information. Trading with inside information is illegal. But by having an automatic plan, the insider is not trading on inside information (the trade is automatic and will happen regardless of any inside knowledge).
Yesterday tesla was shorted to death... and now the short are getting it up their #$%$ LOVE IT!!
Researching is always a good system when buying stocks. Some people look at charts which can be manipulated, but the facts are facts with good DD

Sentiment: Strong Buy
I'm sure that GE board of directors will be getting busy to prop up the share value for the investors or they will be fired by the shareholders.
