  • Next spot for GE headquarters - Texas? [View news story]

    Like everywhere else a lot of people drive 10-15 over the speed limit
    Since I retired I normally put my cruise control at 85 and stay in the right lane and get passed by a quite few.

    NYC may have aging infrastructure but it beats poorly designed infrastructure like most of Houston proper has. Didn't the recent rains prove once again as the highways all over the city flooded.

    The guys who run Austin are referred to by those in the Austin suburbs(like myself) as the "village idiots". They worry about bike lanes while I-35
    looks like the Long Island expressway 5 miles from the Midtown tunnel.
    As a result many companies are building office buildings just outside Austin. We have SH 130 a toll road just east of Austin where the speed limit is 80 mph from Georgetown to north of Austin's airport while it's 85 mph south to I-10 east of San Antonio.

    My comments were on personal income tax and the games the real estate industry plays back when I lived in NY. You might want to see how the Texas business and property taxes are versus NY and CT taxes you might be amazed

    I guess your un familiar that CT had no income Tax while NY had 5% average tax. yes that was years ago however that was the main reason it became a bedroom community to NYC.
    I guess you're knowledge of the real estate industry and how it prepares areas for sales is behind the curve. Take NYC as an example
    Midtown west is the old hells kitchen, Murray hill in lieu of Kips bay. Tribeca
    was western little Italy and Chinatown.

    I am a native New Yorker who retired to Texas. Every year I return for a couple of weeks. Yes, the Cultural opportunities of NYC are second to none. Nearly everyone on my block here in Texas has seen 2 or 3 Broadway plays in NYC in the last five years. I doubt you could find many people from Stamford who could say the same. It also goes for the great museums in NYC.
    You lack of knowledge about Texas, it's schools and infrastructure is way out of date.

    No one disputes the great colleges of the east which basically were started decades before colleges were started west of the Mississippi.
    My daughter is a Cornell graduate and lives north of Houston.
    Now seeing you have the list of the best Colleges think of it from another way, if every state had equal schools each state would have two. Now eliminate the Ivy League schools who had 50 years start on everyone else.
    Tell us how many states have 6 out of the remaining 92 schools.

    Just a note but Texas had 2 of the top 10 high schools last year.

    Why not look at it in a different way, States that have high taxes and little to show for it. Prime examples PA,NY,CT,RI & MA.
    Try and get a copy of where the engineers say the state infrastructures are the worst. In PA it's the bridges.

    Schenectady is a beautiful place in summer however If GE were to move, my guess would be a place where snow is a four letter word.

    Your comment shows both a lack of knowledge of Texas and of GE.

    How many of GE Units are in Texas vs CT?

    In the long run which state has the better economy?

    Being a native New Yorker I spent a lot of time in Stamford, CT and that area is a dog that needs to learn new tricks.

    Since I retired to Texas I have had the opportunity to visit every major city in Texas and all are growing. The major thing in Stamford is the train station for the commuters to go to NYC.

    The main problem is that banks decide to be specialist in one or two areas.

    Example BofA, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, and Bank of NY Mellon.

    B of A is more a deposit bank than the others
    Wells is more a mortgage lender
    JP Morgan is corporate banking
    BNY Mellon is a custody bank.

    Yes, all do general banking , but their main clients are very divergent and that does show in the minutia of the balance sheet.

  • Time To Take A Long Position In General Electric Part 2 [View article]
    I see three problems ahead, one I don't see the dividend reaching pre meltdown level till 2018 or later. If GE doesn't execute the SYF spinoff correctly I see a decline in a dividend. With the next slowdown I see a steeper decline in the stock price than what many people expect.

    I am a very long term stockholder and will continue to hold after the spinoff

  • How big is GE Capital? [View news story]
    "We disclose ENI in addition to total assets so that our investors can better assess our total capital invested in financial services," GE spokesman Seth Martin said.

    These are the guys who almost put GE under.

    " Kenny will remain available to McDonnell and the board in an advisory capacity through year's end". Based on the job he has done, serving coffee to the Board of Directors would be about right.
