  • General Electric: Is Immelt About To Play The Ace Up His Sleeve? [View article]
    SNORFY

    It was the reckless people at GE CAP who almost put GE under.
    Just like your were taught never keep all your eggs in one basket as a banker you are taught for risk requirements you use several different
    funding sources. By 2008 GE CAP was the principal user of the commercial paper market and was over 60% of that market when the house of cards folded. It makes no sense to fund your loan book with a 4 year average
    with less than 270 day funding. Banks use mis-match positions all the time
    but you don't allow more than a few months with out coverage.

    Thanks for the article however based on past history I think the card is a joker and not an ace.

    In some ways I agree, they both have potential, the have some stars but they never quite figure out how to put it together. Like the players, GE trades divisions hoping for things to work out. I've owned GE since 1965 and for the last few years have day traded some. Like a lot of frustrated Cub fans I will probably pass before they get it totally right.

    I agree, I also did well, I guess I have a chip on my shoulder because I was drafted out of college and didn't get the time to go back.
    Welch didn't see that Immelt would let the inmates run the asylum known as GE Cap. Those guys broke every prudent banking standard. I agree that every big industrial corp. should have a finance area but tail should never wag the dog. So far the little real information out of Synchrony Financial I'm not impressed it looks like yesterdays fish rapped in today news paper

    Jack left GE in 2001 so it took 7 years for Jeff to screw it up. I've been investing since 1959 in a UGMA account. My cousin owns a waterfront house in Naples near Grande Beach Resort.
    I can see delusions of grandeur in your comment: A multi-millionaire wouldn't be able to buy an empty lot here. I do agree with owning land in an overall portfolio.

    True, shootings are rare except on the border so it's still news but I guess you didn't see the woman who beat the hell of the guy the cops were chasing up in Dallas who ran into her car.
    Chicago has so many it's not news anymore however

    you have two things wrong
    First Jeff Immelt allowed GE Cap to take over the commercial paper market beginning in 2005 and that's the reason GE almost went under. Second I've been trading stocks and options over 50 years and have become a multi-millionaire so I guess I haven't been that terrible. Not bad for a kid drafted out of college.

  • Does American Express Trouble Mean Buy Discover? [View article]
    I would not put any new money into card market until I see who replaces AXP at Costco. If they go multi card like at Sam's Club did then AXP will lose about 40% of the Costco card holders. If however Capital One gets the exclusive like they have in Canada, I see a 75 % loss.

    When it come to FBI being involved it like saying the SEC was involved in the Madoff debacle for 7 years. Having been a director once it would be their job to watch how the restatements are going.
