  • General Electric's (GE) CEO Jeff Immelt on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    For one of the most advanced corporations today.
    With jet engine orders medical specialties and European expansion I can't help but think G.E is still a major wothwhile leader to invest in especially with the dismissal of their beleaguered finance unit..

    Do anyone think more easing will really create more jobs?
    If this was the case we should have zero unemployment by now.

  • GE Earnings Preview: 'The Incredible Shrinking GE', Or 'Where's The Beef'? [View article]
    Interesting article,
    It's been my understanding that G.E has or is in the final process of shedding what was a albatross around their neck their financial wing
    could this attribute to the shrinking we see?
    I would also expect GE to hold its relative value better.

  • Kinder Morgan: Why Not To Trade, Ever, The Kinder Morgan Family Of Stocks/Units [View article]
    Regarding the issue based on KMP using a K-I
    and KMI sending a 1099 which is preferable and why?

    As they are close to two to one price wise which is the better investment and why?
    With respect to some fine postings on this investment.
    I want to wrap this up.
    Thanks I'd like your opinions on this.

  • General Electric: Alstom Is Slipping Away [View article]
    GE's offer is a good enough one and Alstom's team knows it.
    They also know GE has the money and that if they blow GE away their going to be real tired cowboys before they get a better offer.
    But it's their biggest shot out of the gate and their desperate for blood.
    You know what they say about a deal if only one side walks away from the table with a smile on them it was bad deal.
    If both sides close it with a determined handshake it's a better deal.

  • General Electric: Alstom Is Slipping Away [View article]
    I suspect Jeffery Immelt had long before negotiations not put all his cards on the table.
    He wanted to know the competition out there rather their offers for Alstom.
    He's playing a smart card game and I'm glad he's ahead of the curve.
    I was hoping world wide news; the European financial matter the Ukraine or even the Russia - china gas deal rather stabilizing more than anything else.
    Anyway the market hysterics usually stamped people for a brief moment anyway.
    Thankfully in reality the lack of this happening tells me people are seeing beyond the media hype.
    Good luck Jeffery
    GE LONG anyone.

  • Ford: Short-Term Momentum Halted, But Company Prepares For An Anticipated Strong 2015 [View article]
    Thank you Ford.
    Been waiting for this opportunity to add to the goody box.
    Ford did what GM didn't they surveyed their product coming off the line detected the anomaly and went out straight away and took the problem to hand. Better days and mileage ahead.!
    Henry would have been proud.
