  • 3D Systems: Looking For A Bottom [View article]
    Backing back share could be a good idea only if the money could not be spend in R&D or simply making the 3D product production cheaper and more efficient Or providing more information on the many uses of 3D products and how companies can make their benefit from their use makes more sense to me than backing back shares. Naturally, I could be wrong and sometimes I am, but who really knows? To me investing in improving the company is more logical.

  • Sirona Reports Fiscal 2015 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results [View article]
    Maybe I'm laze or in the hope of improving your article a suggestion would be to also compare DENTSPLY results like you did for SIRONA 2014 and 2015. Another suggestion would include the terms of the merger for us of short-term memory loss.

  • General Electric's Ace In The Hole [View article]
    Just a thought, some groups (bears) will always talk some companies down; be it political, religious, or some foreign influence. It could also be just due to greed, you never really know. Then we have people who believe in capitalism who work for their possessions vs.. this might be a dated concept, the socialists who expect their rulers to provide their (?) needs. GE has and is always under attack from the left no matter who is in office. But, you might say this comment is 'just a lot of talk' as I would add, just like 'the lot of talk' I followed.

  • Should Investors Buy 3D Systems? [View article]
    This article is in its self suspicious with a lot of factors covered which the article points out are based on a falling business trend. Yet at least two financial companies state in their estimates of a raising trend for the next few years of increased EPS for SSYS and DDD. This is a great article for short positions investors. Some are right or some are wrong. And I just did add to one of these companies. What is it that Mr. Buffet says about 'fear'?

  • General Electric's Ace In The Hole [View article]
    To me the financial meltdown a few years was the result of political actions in the 1990s'. In 2007/8 everyone was running around as the sky was falling. Where is the "Honesty is the best policy" in our whole society today instead of becoming the Orwellian society Orwel predicted. Your article did a nice job pointing out that the gas generation products of GE will greatly reduce the use of coal in many parts of the world.
    Doesn't GE make any money with the sale of it's financial assets or is that somehow political? I better shut up or I .............

  • So How Deep Is The Hole That Boeing Dug For The Dreamliner? [View article]
    With the cost of the planes going up, don't the price to buy the planes go up as well? R&D costs are spread over the whole balance sheet and not limited to a particular plane and then the R&D adds value to future products or materials in the long run. So its' a company investment not just one plane's investment.

  • Corning: An Up And Coming Dividend Growth Gem [View article]
    To me CORNING and science go hand in hand. This company should be around another 150 years at least. Thank you for a good examination of CORNING.

  • JPMorgan also dismissed 10 analysts for cheating internal exams [View news story]
    This wave or trend of cheating goes back to at least the 1960s'. I feel that school children through college are not taught that 'Honesty is the best policy', Ben Franklin. The United States is cheating itself when we are dishonest, unfair, and not just with people we deal with. It is like when we cheat others, we are really cheating ourselves.

  • What's Going On At General Electric? [View article]
    With Mr. Immelt hanging around Washington D.C. too much it is no wonder that according to some GE is losing money at least this quarter. The lost of the Glass/Siegel Act under Clinton caused the financial crisis eight years ago. Too much Socialist thinking by the Democrats forced the housing crisis as well Buying back stock is one way to raise the stock's price and dividend, but where is the money made by selling the appliances and financial parts of GE?

  • Intel And Cisco Head-To-Head [View article]
    Just a question, where do these two companies stand on the so called "Internet of Things"? I know that their methods of dealing with "IOT" will be different, but any insight (the nuts and bolts) would be of great use for better understanding of what is going on in this area. Any opinions are welcome. I agree with the author that these are two "great companies" have large cash reserves, but they should be ready for anything with best R & D to keep them ahead of their respective packs.

  • Thinking Ahead: General Electric's Debt Balance And Valuation [View article]
    Looking at this from a debt stand point won't GE as a stand alone w/o GECC be a more profitable company worth more than the $25 figure you guys have been kicking around? And with all the bears talking down the market doesn't it make sense to hang in there when some estimates put stand alone GE'S EPS increasing by at least 10%? And that was a low estimate.

  • Buy Chevron For 5.6% Dividend Yield While Waiting For Oil Price Recovery [View article]
    Just a thought, with low prices for gas and oil, don't he industrial and chemical companies gain. In a sense, doesn't this boost demand and help the economy overall. P.S. I'm not a teacher or government employee. Also with interest rates
    kept low then many U.S. companies may shoot themselves in the wallet by taking on too much debt.
