    Hoping slow and steady dividend increases and buy backs get the stock closer to $32 I paid for it 5 years ago. Also, I hope they pay the shareholders before going overboard with executive compensation.

    I am a GE Aviation employee with a company stock purchase program. Very pleased with the dividend increase, and from the cost cutting measures and productivity goals that we have planned for 2013, I can already see dividend increasing another notch in the next fiscal year.

    I hope within 2 years time, GE will increase the dividend rate to $0.31 per quarter back to what it was 3-4 years ago.
