  • General Electric: Enough Idle Chatter, Let's Cut To The Chase [View article]
    In a pass / fail course, a "pass" simply meant you did enough.

  • The Most Unlikely Stock To Build A Retirement Portfolio Upon At Any Age [View article]
    Stop touting GE dividend yield as some type of investment magnet. For those of us who had the dividend cut, we do not see the recent dividend increases as "increases" but as "catch-ups." The dividend is STILL not back to where it was in 2008. Yes, for new investors, GE is a good dividend stock, as long as you are willing to take the risk that the lying CEO will not cut dividends again. However, for those of us who held the stock before 2008, all GE has been doing is engaging in pay back for all the money we have lost in terms of dividends and reinvested stock between 2008-2015.

  • GE CEO Jeff Immelt Issues Letter To Shareowners [View article]
    Talk is cheap. He had his chance to increase stock value. He failed. Get rid of him. Pure and simple. No fancy economic analysis required. The stock has been dead in the water. GE is known for having a large pen of stock pushers who post on various sites. Just fire the guy.

  • General Electric: This One Chart May Spell 'The End' For Immelt [View article]
    How do you explain the comparison chart to S&P 500? A level playing field. How do you explain his blatant lie to stockholders that the dividend would not be cut? Performance and trust.

  • General Electric Is Working On Bringing Good Things To Shareholders [View article]
    In my opinion, as a GE shareholder, the CEO's ability and reputation is a contributing factor as to why "investors love to hate GE." I would add that analysts and others are skeptical of GE's ability also. I think GE needs a new captain at the helm.

  • General Electric: Dividend Aristocrat In The Making [View article]
    Once again, you use the term "raise" when describing what GE has done with its dividend. The more accurate term is "restore." I am one of those investors who do not like the idea of a CEO lying to the investors. Blantantly. You apologists for the CEO keep saying he had to do it or GE would not have survived. Not true. He did not have to cut it as much as he did. This implies that GE did not have money to support the dividend which then is the CEO's second lie to investors. I will not even say or print his name. I want him out. If someone knows of an investor petition to do, let me know. For me, GE has not raised the dividend over the past 4 years, it is simply restoring it to what it was before the GREAT LIE.

  • Update: General Electric Continues To Regain Its Footing [View article]
    Agree 100%. I will say job well done when the liar CEO brings the dividend back to what it was in 2008. Until then, he and band of merry men are simply restoring not increasing the dividend. Like you, I am in GE for the dividend.

  • General Electric: Is It Time To Be Greedy? [View article]
    I agree with the dividend raisers. In fact, it is not a raise as the dividend has quite a way to go before it gets back to where it was in 2007-2008. Once there, then any subsequent dividend would be a "raise." To me, in retirement, the problem is the CEO - get rid of Jeffrey!

  • GE: What To Look For In GE's Annual Outlook Meeting [View article]
    Should be interesting to see how they rationalize sticking it to shareholders by increasing the dividend by only .01 cent. I hope they talk about how much of pay increases and bonuses, management received or will receive this year.

  • General Electric declares $0.23 dividend [View news story]
    Once again, the idiot Imnuts sticks it to stockholders. As a stockholder, I want him fired. We are still not where we were in 2008 in terms of dividend. It will be interesting to read the comments on this 4 cents dividend raise.

  • General Electric: What Worries Me The Most [View article]
    As for the price of oil, all it takes is for a major Middle eastern conflict or terrorist attack on an oil refinery in that region to give oil a boost. The jihadist terrorists know that oil is crucial for the U.S. and Western economies and for Middle Eastern states. Expect some attacks on pipelines and oil refineries. My point it that what goes down, comes up. It will not return to its price per barrel high, but it will go up.
    As for the Fed involvement in GE capital, while unfortunate, it is in a way a positive as it reinforces the credibility and stability of GE capital as the Fed will be watching it closely. I agree with other commentators that GE is too big and diversified to be affected by a single, temporary economic development or trend. I am retired and invest because of the dividend. Growth is icing on the cake - primarily for my children. Good article. Appreciate your honesty.

  • NASA Forgives Orbital Sciences, Will Wall Street Follow? [View article]
    Doug brings up a good point. I am a believer in Orbital and stockholder. What is your assessment of ORB's contract diversification and do you see movement by ORB to increase its diversification of contracts?

  • General Electric In Focus [View article]
    Your article is one of many recently that is positive on GE and noting how undervalued it is. However, as a simple stockholder, I have not seen any of this translate into up movement for the stock. I am one of those stockholders who still holds it against GE's management that they lied to us when they said they would not cut the dividend. Comments by posters above clearly indicate some do not mind a management team that lies to shareholders. I do. Therefore, I keep wondering if there is something else in GE that is holding it back? Something we are no aware of at this time. Most if not all analysts are either positive or neutral on GE, but still no movement. At what point does all this paper positiveness translate into market movement?
