  • Why GE Investors Should Expect Continued Growth In Its Dividend [View article]
    Rubel: Agree with you about vesting in 12 months. I vest at the rate of 20% per year; don't see why options granted couldn't use the same rate. Don't have the history with GE that you do so I'm not as POed about performance/payout. Why haven't the "institutions" taken action? "Institutions" were not happy with Nardelli at Home Depot (HD) a few years a go and they orchestrated a removal. Seems they canned a board member or two at the same time. Another question I have is: if GE is in the top ten companies sitting on lots of cash (reported to be +/- 93 Billion $), why so slim on the Dividend or buy-back program?

    Rubel: I disagree with your politics and I don't think you have a grasp on the option idea either. Options are granted as an incentive to grow the value of a companies shares through hard work and diligence. If an option is granted at $1.00 per share, and the stock goes to $3.00, the grantee makes a nice profit. If, on the other hand, the stock goes down to $.50, then only a fool would buy the stock from the company when he/she could buy it on the open market for half that. Your concept is like dangling a carrot in front of a mules face in hopes it goes faster. That works, unless the mule just finished lunch.
