  • Synchrony Financial Soaring As Investors Anticipate 'Buy' Ratings [View article]
    Startups have their risks, that's for sure. But, this isn't exactly a start up as much as a spin off. There's no reason that it shouldn't be at least as successful as an independent company as it was while just a part of GE. I'm looking for SYF to continue to rise in share price as other investors see it as a growth stock.

  • Mexico's 'Energy Revolution' Could Boost Schlumberger's Numbers [View article]
    SLB has a long history of working with PEMEX. By long, I mean it has been PEMEX's oil well service provider since forever. With their long standing service provider status, I would expect that they would benefit largely when PEMEX goes commercial. A definite plus for future SLB growth.

  • High-Yielding General Electric Should Provide A Higher Yield Soon [View article]
    jazz: I just bought 500 shares of SYF and didn't have to sell any of my shares of GE to get it. Fidelity just took cash out of my account and credited me with the shares of SYF.

  • Schlumberger's Earnings Downfall Should Not Concern Long-Term Investors [View article]
    Unless SLB drops below $105, I think it's just a matter of time before it gets it's mojo back and hits the previously projected $126 level. I believe this set back is temporary and a buying period for confident investors.

  • General Electric's (GE) CEO Jeff Immelt on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    As usual, " We predict a bright future ". That's the impression of all earning projections, while the stock price continues to drop. That's why I believe these presentations are worse than useless.

  • Schlumberger's (SLB) CEO Paal Kibsgaard on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I think these meetings are useless for the common investor. Why ? Because they always read like the stock price should skyrocket on the information they release. Somehow, the market professionals decipher these words of brightness, and the stock price tumbles. Being a non-professional, It just confuses me. I'm long SLB, and have been for a long time, averaging out @ $ 58. a share, so the recent downturn doesn't hurt so much but, those who just recently bought expecting a rise to $ 120 or more, must be very disappointed.

  • Just How Big Is GE's Alstom Deal? [View article]
    I hope you're right. GE needs to do something to get the stock price going up again. Let's hope this will do it.

  • Algorithmic Prediction Is Bullish On General Electric [View article]
    Bought GE when it was at $15. Not pleased that it has stagnated around $25 but, still collecting the ~$3.5% dividend and hoping Jeffy Boy pulls a miracle or two out of his hat before he retires.

  • Why I Sold My Shares In Altria [View article]
    Realtoi: This is one longtime MO long holder who will stay long for the dividend, which is the reason I bought it in the first place. The fact that the price varies is not a real concern to me because I see that as a normal function of the market. And, as others have said, MO is not just a tobacco company. It has other " sin " products that will keep it relevant, IMHO.

  • Why Schlumberger's Stock Is A Long-Term Investment Opportunity [View article]
    Been long SLB since 2005 and doubled my investment in 2009, which averaged me out at $58.86 a share. It seemed like it would never break and hold the $105 ceiling. But, patients paid off in the long run. After reading this article, staying long SLB is a no brainer. Thanks for this detailed and informative article.

    Jeroen: Nice article ! You say in your conclusion:," there may be better places to invest right now." Where are those " places " ? No matter the economy, people will continue to smoke and drink, and even more so in a down economy. It seems MO and the other " sin " stocks just keep rewarding investors.

  • What Will The Alstom Deal Bring To General Electric? [View article]
    I hope Immellt is correct in seeking this acquisition. He's spent a lot of time trying to close the deal. Knowing nearly nothing about the transaction, I have to trust that he knows what he is doing is in the best interest of GE. But, then again, since I know little of what goes on in government, I have to trust the president, and from what I've seen of his decisions so far, I'm a fool.
