GE dividend +$.02/sh better than a penny! But insufficient! 2012 maybe big year for div w GE Cap, but shrhldrs must cont be patient. (cont)

General Electric effectively buying back stock at $30/share, ~2x current price. http://bit.ly/qrsjVF
GE.......too complicated a stock, like oil& gas division, no current position.
