  • Immelt Kills Jack Welch's GE [View article]
    Anyone who buys or sells stocks based on Barrons' recommendation should have his/her head examined.

  • GE Unwinds Its Prop-Trading Portfolio - Now What? [View article]
    It was considered a question mark only by you, and you did not seem to now that it was sold. It is hard to admit if you were wrong but sometimes necessary and it increases you credibility. You will learn eventually.

    NO! They already made a decision to sell it which it seems you were not aware of.

    Typical hindsight nonsense!

    BTW GE was one of the best industrial companies in the world before Welch made it into a finance company as part of his ill fated financial engineering sheninagans. Immelt is doing the right thing to take back GE to its root.

  • Intel's Q1 Was A Dinosaur Egg [View article]
    I disagree. Lenovo. MOT and ASUS are all leading edge tech companies. Lenovo is certainly a leader in the notebook/PC space and a quality/reliability leader. I have not bought any other laptop for business use but aThinkpad for the past 15 years. ASUS has been one of the best respected name in TW. And MOT still has the best radios in any cell phone, maybe save Nokia (now MSFT). Apple is not even close. BTW, my family members used to own a number of MOT RAZR-s, one of the best cell phones I have owned. I agree that these companies are not leaders in the call phone business, yet. But they will be and they will hurt Apple's iPhone business in the future. Intel is betting on the right horses.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For An Economic Spring Thaw? [View article]
    Jeff,

    thanks for pointing our my oversight, indeed I did not differentiate between federal and state/local spending...I should have read the original Brookings piece before commenting..

    Jeff, you said:
    "Brookings has an interesting interactive chart (snapshot below) showing the effect of government spending, combining all levels, on GDP. When state and local effects are included, it has been a significant drag."

    It seems to me that you/Brookings mixed up correction with causation, just like Reinhart and Rogoff have done in their widely discredited article a couple of years back (which aside of this error also included a trivial spreadsheet error and unjustified data truncations). It is much more probable that government spending increased as a result of declining GDP instead of the other way around.

    That reminds me when I thought many years ago when I bought my PCAT that I will never need more than 20MB hard disk space....

    You Intel hater guys count them out too easily. One way or another Intel will be a player, and a successful one, in the mobile area (whether via their own designs or via foundry arrangements, or both)

    I would not be that sure of that, if W 10 will be a good op system. And chances are that it will be.

    Based on history W 10 should be good. Historically Msoft has had it right with every second operating system they released. W XP was great, W Vista was sheit, W 7 was great, W 8 was sheit, so W 10 will be good, with high probability.

    Whether you like it or not most of GE's troubles are rooted in Welch's crooked financial engineering shenanigans.
