    It depends on your interpretation of gaming.

    If I had a company like coca cola where most of my sales are overseas why should I have to pay the overseas governments and then the US government. To avoid DOUBLE TAXATION I keep my sales profits overseas. When I buy a company overseas the liberals over here whine that I am avoiding taxes however they fail to mention that I paid the tax overseas on the gain.
    The problem comes when I can invest in the US, I have to measure
    both the cost of the US investment and taxes to be paid on the money I return to the US. Guess what's been happening I can't justify the US investment as it became to expensive therefore I can't create good paying jobs because the expense is too high.

    You see this in the states some times, Toyota is moving from California to Texas and cut their expenses by 20%.

    DI LA

    In 2009 I was all for the FED printing money by the middle of 2010 I was against it but also knew that as long as they kept printing all investments would rise. That the kept the presses running until now the kids will pay for it. You'll notice the whine right now about tax inversion however no one mentions that when it happens you the stockholder has to pay tax on the price of the conversion. Example you bought in January a stock at 10 and its converted when the price is 25 in September, well you owe taxes on the $15 as ordinary income even thought you still hold the exchanged stock.
    the new stock get the 25 set up price but mail your check it uncle sam next april 15

    It's going to come as a shock to the shareholders that they technically sold the US stock and bought the foreign stock.

    Don't like mutual funds because they take the cream topping and leave you with a stale filling. INVN is getting killed as I type however next week gives you new opportunities. I've never been one to stay in cash for long.

    Amen!!

    American Civilization suffers from poor k-12 schools and colleges that produce 1/3 of the graduates, who can not get a job in their field of study.

    Does it surprise anyone that the buffoon in the White House is a constitutional lawyer professor. He was the one who said ACA was not a tax
    and the same yoyo who got spanked for making appointments illegally.

    That academics are poor teachers and politicians'

    If you think Politics, have very little to do with investing.

    You have failed history 101, economics 101 and finance 101.

    Its naïve people like yourself who do not understand the adage

    The more things change the more they stay the same.

    I'm from NYC and I know the difference between Jon Stewart the satirist and Jon Stewart the brother of the NYSE parent company executive.
    As they say here in Texas he speaks with folk tongue.

    I think you may be confused as GE is not getting rid of its financial arm only a small portion formerly known as GE MONEY retail loan portfolio
    The real spin off of the 85% is suppose to be you trade in your share of GE for x amount of shares in the new company Synchrony. if GE cancel the exchanged shares they receive, the GE Stock should go up if it keeps them in treasury GE will go down. The real question will be if you do the exchange.

    For practical purposes GE was bankrupt The commercial paper market could not meet its rollover commitment and that's why the Fed came to the rescue. The 2008 shares along with appliances were worth ZERO.
    Now start looking out the front window if you picked up shares in 2009 it worth more of an investment today than HON or UTX.
    Since 2003 I have voted against management. Take the time and reread all my posts and get pencil and paper to check the numbers I've given out.
    If they had not killed the dividend and begged the FED for help you would have lost everything and so would I.

    your quote
    think what price ge would garner now if the dividend would not have been slashed, the finance arm would have been culled years ago.

    the answer would be below 5 dollars. Without the funding of GECC for the last 20 years GE would not have the resources to pay a dividend and not be able to finance the gains in aviation and oil and gas last decade.
