  • GE Problems Are Structural But Are They Permanent [View article]
    It is a dividend stock - pure and simple. You growth-oriented analysts should be looking at Microsoft. We all know that GE is a turtle for growth, but it WILL grow. I bought it for the dividend and I am satisfied. GE has served its function for me.

  • Why Holders Of GE Should Take Note Of This Rival [View article]
    "However, yield aside ..." You dismiss a key component of GE's attraction for many investors - dividend. I am retired and have bought and keep GE because of its dividend and my belief that the dividend will increase more than Honeywell. i think most people buy GE because of its dividend. Therefore, I would not minimize it when comparing it to rivals. Growth is for the grand kids. The dividends are for me.

  • GE: Fair Value Is About $35 [View article]
    Stop picking on Welch and blaming him for 2008. You sound like Obama blaming everything on Bush. You all forget that Immelt and the board lied to stockholders about not cutting the dividend and then cutting it. GE got caught up in an economic downturn, like a lot of other multinationals. Welch did not drive GE down to around $5 a share. The problem now is that the great Immelt CANNOT get the dividend back to where it was when he lied in 2008 and he CANNOT construct confidence in the investment community to drive up GE's pathetic share price. It is called management and leadership. As a retired stockholder, I do not believe GE has either now. Fire the CEO and the Board and get this stock going up instead of sideways.

  • GE Earnings Impress, But Is It A Buy Here? [View article]
    Good article. I bought GE as a retirement and legacy stock. In a few years, I will take the dividends in retirement and then pass the shares to my two children to hold, re-invest dividends, and grow. As a result of the above, I am focused on their dividend. I still think they should return the dividend to its 2009 rate ASAP. Stop fooling around. I believe most people buy GE for the yield. The yield will wash out the low growth. I do not want share buybacks. I want a very large dividend increase in the 4th quarter.

  • Is General Electric The Perfect Company? [View article]
    He lied about not cutting the dividend. It is not back to its 2008 level and the share price remains low to historical prices. Your arguments do not sway me. Immelt should go - sooner rather than later. This is just one vote.

    GE has not "increased" its dividend in recent years. It has "RESTORED" it. There is a big difference. In fact, GE is not yet back to the 2008 level. When it does reach that restored level, investors will still have lost 7 years of increased income. Tired of you pundits stating it has "increased" its dividend. You are spinning a positive.

  • General Electric: 76 Million New Reasons To Buy The Stock [View article]
    Good article. I am a baby boomer shareholder. The CEO and GE's board are still on my bad side for lying about the dividend cut. I would vote the CEO and board out today. To me, GE's management MUST return the dividend to what is was in 2008 ASAP. I hold this stock because of its dividend income. I lost a lot of retirement income because of the lying Immelt. GE could have increased the dividend more and quicker than it has. All the other financial factors you note are great. However, my core is income. I judge GE as a retirement income product. Maybe too simplistic but it is what it is. As I have noted many times in commenting on GE, to me, the dividend does not increase until it gets back to where it was in 2008 and moves upward from there. We have lost 6 years of income as investors!!! Rationalize that.

  • General Electric's Bid For Alstom Is Now In Jeopardy [View article]
    Not sure but did not GE and Alstom sign an agreement that if either party pulls out, a penalty is paid? If so, then GE will make some money if Alstrom pulls out and signs with the Axis consortium. We should have made both Germany and Japan pay trillions of dollars in reparation for the blood we lost serving them. We should have put into that agreement that U.S. companies would get free clearance to invest in or buy any Jap or Krout company. Sorry, my dad fought in WWII. We got screwed in the post-war agreements.

  • Why General Electric Is In My Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    A lie is a lie. You dismiss this fact. You rationalize it with a lesser of two evils explanation. However, that does not address the fact that the CEO lied to shareholders. Moreover, the dividend cut was large. So large, that GE will most likely not get back to it until 2016. If GE knew what its financial situation was then that liar Immelt should not have said he would not cut the dividend. GE had the option of keeping the dividend flat over the next 8 years. No increases are better than a cut. It always amazes me, as a senior who relies on dividends, how you financial pundits cherry pick what you address in your articles. I vote Immelt out.

  • General Electric Enters France To Push Out Siemens [View article]
    Illogic to believe Siemens wins in this - either way. If GE wins this battle they now have a larger footprint in Europe - Siemens area of influence. If GE wins this battle it will most likely increase revenue and over time EPS. There is no evidence presented to suggest that GE went into this deal with the intent of losing money or of losing position. Why would GE pay this much money and go through all this trouble if it did not believe, no assess, that the deal would increase GE's financial position and footprint??????? There is this idea that the author of this piece has more information on this whole deal than the GE board. I believe the author and other pundits are looking at only 50 pieces of a 125 piece puzzle. Whereas the GE board has all 125 pieces in front of it. So, who do you trust to give you the most accurate picture of the puzzle?
