  • Undervalued Giant Paying Big Yields And Benefiting From Rising Rates [View article]
    The 1.9 Billion buyback was from the 2011 promise of the 4 Billion promise. GE is still behind 2.1 Billion which will never happen. My point is this; you did not address the three aquisitions made at investors expense by lowering dividends from .41 to .10. Investors paid for aquisitions in the long run. Have sold mine and now receiving
    20.15% yield or $4.92 a year. Big difference!!! Be happy w/GE

  • Undervalued Giant Paying Big Yields And Benefiting From Rising Rates [View article]
    During 2008-2011 the 200 billion company made aquisitions of three
    companies, lowered the dividend from .41 cents to .10 cents. They spent billions on aquisitions but how did they look out for investor?
    GE is a conglomorate, and the stock is at $23.00...come on....GE also said that by 2014 they will buyback 10 billion in stock, hey we are
    over halfway through 2013! Shouldn't something have begun? Don't look upon GE as a dividend friendly company, sold all 5000 shares.
    Tired of waiting for something to happen or being promised to.....

  • GE's Valuation: Is It A Buy As A Bank Or As An Industrial Giant? [View article]
    GE used to be the american apple pie of stocks, now many look at GE as a joke. A conglomorate who after 2008 - 2011 made aquisitions
    at the expense of the stockholders. They lowered the dividend from
    .31 cents to .10 cents and have been promising stockholders a 10 billion buy back by 2015. What other conglomorate stock is in the 20 dollar range? My money is in tobacco, smoking will ALWAYS be there.

  • GE Capital will pay a $6.5B in dividends to parent company GE in 2013, consistent with previously stated goals on capital allocation. Overall, GE plans to return $18B in cash to its shareholders in 2013. [View news story]
    Oh now its up to 18B in 2013, well according to my calendar 2013
    is half over. Is this going to be a July 4th or Christmas present? Just unloaded my GE for an energy stock that pays good dividends.

  • General Electric - Doubling Down On Natural Gas [View article]
    All you have said about GE is well and good but after GE sold its stake in NBC it was supposed to do something for it's share holders.
    Instead of glorifying GE and it's aquisitions and future plans how about asking GE when it plans to buy back some of it's stock? It is the middle of 2013 and still have not even started the buy back or the intended increase in dividends. It is still a conglomorate with a twenty dollar stock.

  • General Electric: An Update On The Perfect Stock [View article]
    Waiting to see how long its going to take for GE to have their 10 billion dollar buy back in stocks as promised, starting in 2013. We are almost into April 2013 and have heard NADA!

  • General Electric To Return 50% More Cash To Shareholders In 2013 [View article]
    As I have stated before, why is conglomorate company stock only in the 20 dollar price range? A company that has been around for over 100 years? The shareholder gets zilch!

  • General Electric Not The Perfect Stock [View article]
    Just a couple of years ago the dividend was at .31, then GE blamed the recession and lowered it to .10, but what gets me the most is that during the recession they made 3 acquisitions, each one in the billions
    why did they not think of the average investor and reward him by sticking by them and their stock. Why did they not make a buy back of stock as they intended to do? Now they are promising again, that they will by 2015. I don't believe in them any longer. GE is not the "apple pie" of the investor any longer.

    I know that GE is worth more than 200 billion dollars, there are other large companies worth much less and their stock price is in the 50 and 60 dollar range. GE is only in the $20 dollar, ever think or wonder why? Something is not right! It's a cheap share with a cheap yield.
