  • UTX is not a good buy right now. In the past it has made it's money buying up companies and robbing the pension funds and selling technology to the Chinese. Those days are over. They cannot make money in a world with a strong dollar and a weak market in China. You may not have noticed but the commodities are going down. That is a sign that growth around the world is slowing. This bull has been going for over 6 years and it is coming to an end. Not sure how the fed will handle it since interest rates are zero. You better get into cash while you still can. If you listen to KID you will lose all your money. In KID's world you never lose money but in the real world it is a different game. A fool and his money are soon parted. Riding UTX down and waiting for it to come back is not a good game plan.

    Oversold - price way below 50 and 200 SMA

    Buying UTX is stupid. It is oversold for a reason and will get a lot more oversold. The market is up today and UTX is down. That should tell you something. The only person I know who is making money on UTX is KID and he is in his own fantasy world. You do not have to be a genius to understand everything is going against UTX.

    Maybe: the FED is like the boy who cried wolf. After a while you stop believing these criminals. These criminals have given our money to their friends in the banking industry and I doubt they want to stop. I would like to see our fix income fund pay more but I have my doubts. The FED knows what raising interest rates will do to the dollar and the world economies. Someday we will have to pay for what the FED had done. I have very little exposure to stocks so raising rates would be good for me. Like to see the 3.5% go up.

    It will be an opportunity when the dollar gets weaker and China recovers. Until then this stock is a sell.

    If that happens it would be a gift. Sell the stock and you can buy it lower latter. Only KID can make money trading UTX.

    Stock Buy-Back

    Nice that they are buying back shares because their earnings will be less without SA. There is no reason to own this stock. Hayes told you that the problem was the dollar strength and weakness in China. If you believe that the dollar will remain strong and weakness will continue in China you do not want to own the stock. People have made money in the past buying when the stock went down and then riding it back up. Some times stocks go down and never come back. Look at GE. Before the big crash GE had a high of $60. Now after the recovery it is $26. Probably never see $60 again. Fed will meet next week and we could get a bounce. Janet is pretty good at saying what the market likes. You may get a chance to sell your UTX but buying more is a loser. The only thing holding our market up now is zero interest rates. Once the fed starts raising we will see the correction which is over due. I wouldn't want to be in the market then. I believe Janet understands this and will not raise rates but you never know. Even if she doesn't raise rates they will continue to pump more Euros into the market. The dollar will continue to get stronger. When I look at China it is a disaster waiting to happen. They have built cities over there and no one is living in them. It is crazy.

    You are suffering because UTX business is mostly oversea and we have the strong dollar. No one can change that. That is their business model. If you own UTX stock you should be very scared. The dollar is going to get stronger and China is a bubble waiting to bust. How long they can hold up their market up is anybodies guess but when they go our market will go with it. Doesn't matter who runs the company. There is nothing they can do. What you can do is get in the fix income fund and you will not suffer the downturn that is coming. Remember when the stock went to $40. You think that can't happen again?

    Smaller military = bigger problems

    We do not need more military equipment. The stupid use of our military is the reason Iraq and Libya are a mess and now we have Isis. We have made a mess of the world with the stupid decisions made by our politicians. We can no longer afford to make war on the rest of the world. We need to spend the money here.

    UTX is one of the worst managed companies

    want2bik want2bik Jul 22, 2015 1:49 PM Flag

    This has nothing to do about management. It is all about the business model. Doesn't matter who runs the company. The majority of UTX business is oversea. Europe and China are a mess now. The dollar will continue to get stronger and UTX earnings will get weaker. Doesn't matter who runs the company. If the Fed raises interest rates as it has said it will do things will get worse. This bull has run a long time and now it is time to give some back. Notice how oil and all the other commodities are coming down. That is because things are slowing. Don't think you have seen anything yet. If I am right come September and October you will see some real pain. KID will be the only one making money then unless you are in fixed income.

    OVERDONE SELLING

    Not sure what you are referring to with the management team. Isn't this the same management team UTX has had for years? The only one missing is Louie. With their overseas exposure not sure there is anything they can do. For sure it is not a good idea to place a bet on them right now. Not sure it would be ethical to promise more than they can deliver.

    Hope LMT is better at keeping military secrets than UTX.

    What makes you think that opportunity knocks? Do you think the dollar is going to get weaker when the Fed hikes interest rates? Do you think the bubble in China is going away? You may get a dead cat bounce but nothing has change and the stock is a sell. That is what is going on now. Everyone has know for a long time that the Euro strength would be bad for UTX and nothing has changed. The only one making money on this stock is KID and he is not sharing his information on how he does it. I have ask him many times to tell us when it was time to buy and when to sell but he is not talking. Best to leave this stock alone unless KID tell you how he does it. If you have to be in the market try the Equity Fund(S&P 500) or small cap fund(Russelll 2000). UTX has too much oversea exposure and it is a mess over there. If you are retired the 3.5% the fixed income fund pays is not bad.

    Maybe Sterne Agee has some stock it wants to sell. The important thing is will they have good earnings. That is what will drive the stock. With the EURO going against them it doesn't look good.

    Not getting much of a bounce on the helicopter news. The only one making money on UTX is KID and he not giving us his secrets. Was hoping he would tell us when to get in and when to get out but that is not going to happen. Think this is as good as it gets for UTX. The earnings are not going to be good because of the EURO. The strong dollar will make it hard for the international companies. The FED keep promising us they are going to raise interest rates and if they do that will mean a stronger dollar. Fix income is the place to be for now. Glad to see the helicopter deal. Maybe Lockheed will keep our military secrets better. Never liked the fact that UTX was selling information to the Chinese. Guess if you own UTX it shows they will do anything to make a buck. Think they are running out of tricks. You had a chance to sell at $120 now you have a chance to sell at $110. What are you waiting for $100.

    Think the earnings will be more important for the stock direction. Might get a temporary bounce but the direction will reflect the earnings. The Euro is a big drag for the internationals. Best to stay in domestic stocks for now.

    30.5 million shares short

    So you think this stock has been mispriced for the last $2. That means if you bought this mispriced stock at $7 you are down 28%. I believe all the known information is priced into the stock. Going by what the insiders (management) is doing is silly. Management is responsible for the price of this stock. If they knew anything the stock would not be down so much. It is their job to paint you a good picture so you will buy their stock. Their solution is to give you a reverse split to get the price up and make it a REIT. The real solution is to get the company to make a profit. They are unable to do that so this stock will continue to go lower. Why would anyone invest in such a loser? You really do not have to be too smart to figure out it is all a big scam. It is never a good thing when you have to use a reverse split to increase the stock price.

    Don't you get it. The short sellers can pay the dividend and still make money. They are making a lot of money while the longs continue to lose. Stop blaming the shorts. This stock is a loser.
