  • EU extends decision deadline for GE-Alstom deal [View news story]
    felix lumpe

    my problem on this deal is that I can see 25 positive and 25 negatives. As such I have no clue what to make of it. My best positive is that turbines might be the best for the next 20 years. My best negative is Immelt is driving the bus and historically that means a crash ahead.

  • Our Bank Of America: Ripe For A Short Sale [View article]
    DD

    If you were a better trader you would see 2014 was a great year but like fun fun you miss the forest for the trees when you cherry pick dates.
    the stock opened at 15.69 on 1/2/14 and closed at 17.89 on 12/31/14 for an overall gain of 14%. Now it time for you to tell us how 14% has not been a wonderful year.
    Like a said in a comment to fun fun
    Last year I made over 3 million buffalo nickels on BAC so my ride was great and hope to do it again this year.

    Before the 1999-2000 bubble that was true. The buy and hold group was the way to grow. As more money has gone into IRA/ROTH the tax advantage of capital gains went away. Because you are taxed as ordinary income on your IRA distribution and will be forced into RMD at 70 1/2 the smart investor will bracket convert every year into a Roth where the short term churn maybe to your advantage.

    The first question you should ask was what currency is the off shore funds denominated in. It could be in dollars at Credit Agricole Paris or euros at Chase London or pound sterling at HSBC Hong Kong. The second question is what currency is the deal in. Right now a deal in euros and the funds in dollars would be great

    If that were true by the end of the year he would be the richest man in the world.

    The spin off is suppose to be tax free which means at the moment
    1 SYF at 31.95 would require 1.2554 of GE at 25.45 .Yes by the time the deal comes the prices will be different but 4 to 1 doesn't make any sense.

    If anyone in drinking Kool-Aid it's you. Immelt is getting out of the financial end which produced most of the former profit under his tenure.
    Do you really think an industrial conglomerate that has that many segments will grow when historically 2 division go negative for a couple of years at a time. It like owing an index fund when the economy is doing good it does well however when the economy stagnates the bottom 1/3 of the index kills you and when the economy tanks for a while your lucky if the growth is a positive number.

    Assuming it was in a book is not real giving a reference.
    I also notice that
    Nardelli was credited with doubling the sales of the Home Depot chain and improving its competitive position. Revenue increased from $45.74 billion in 2000 to $81.51 billion in 2005, while net earnings after tax rose from $2.58 billion to $5.84 billion

    You may not call Immelt an idiot but then can you give me one word to describe a CEO who lost over 50% of the stock price and cut the dividend
    2/3 and has not made it back to par on that dividend.

    your facts maybe accurate in your head but you haven't written any here so we could comment on. Just like you still did not answer Richmondinvestors question. I will gladly read your "truths" once you actually present them here.

    Can you give any references that says jack voted for jeff or did he present a choice of three and the board picked the loser?

    There are two reasons the dow went up
    1] the djii is played with every year, this year att (T) leaves apple (APPL) joins, therefore 7400 was the orange and the 18000 is the apple pun intended.
    2] the fed buying to get zero interest makes stocks the risker asset float.

    Labor utilization rates continue to go down so that and the 2010 definition change to unemployment rate a joke. Blacks voted for mr o and now have twice the unemployment. Millenniums also voted for mr o and are now familiar with the law of unintended consequences. The will not do as well as their parent and grandparents in general.

  • General Electric: The CEO Is Here To Stay And The Shares Are Attractively Valued [View article]
    WG INV RES.

    Since IMMELT became CEO both the stock and dividends have gone down and his salary has gone up. When you get a chance you should write another article giving reasons for your approval of him.
    Since I always vote against him in the proxy maybe you see something that I don't.

    If you bought in early 2009 you would say
    "GE shares have performed quite well over the long term".
    Possible 400% gain and double of dividend.

    Of course if you bought in 1999 you want to throw Jeff under the nearest bus.

    it traded between 22.10 and 27.94 in the last two years. A spread of 5.84
    and you think it hasn't budged. If that's the case you should sell out and stick to mutual fund.
