  • General Electric: Has The Point Of Maximum Pessimism Arrived? [View article]
    Firing Immelt will do plenty good to GE. He is not a leader, not an operational stalwart and lacks imagination. All he has done is carried on the momentum of this mega ship. The only thing that is positive is that he did not sink the ship. GE board did a terrible job by putting him as a CEO.

  • Seadrill's Strong Cash Flow Provides Confidence In Ability To Handle Debt [View article]
    Talking about airlines, I fly a lot, with oil trading at 50% of what it was before the airlines ticket price have not come down. Airlines are raking in money by flying lower capacity. If I take this as a sample data point, it may be a while before oil price recover. How long SDRL can can sustain low oil price?

  • General Electric: This One Chart May Spell 'The End' For Immelt [View article]
    For all the favors he did to Obama administration why did he have to get out of the finance. While I understand the market went thru a huge collapse, Strong players have come back like Goldman. GE, as a AAA rated company could have managed the turmoil and could have come out much strongly positioned.

    I don't judge him based on the dividend issue. But he has been an uninspiring leader. He has acted like a government bureaucrat rather than a CEO of a premium global company.

  • Another Reason Investors Should Not Buy Seadrill's Stock [View article]
    There may many reason not to buy SDRL, not buying back stock is the stupidest reason. SDRL business model has been based on leveraged financing. While the interest rates have been low, the recent slump in oil price has introduced a huge risk. Demand for SDRL's service may not sustainable causing big revenue and margin fall. SDRL has to manage the risk. That should be the singular focus.
