  • FX-Related Fines Highlight Bank Of America's Need To Get Its House In Order [View article]
    It's difficult for us small fry to have an impact on proposals, and Management. The ratios are terrible. Shares held by Management+ Mutual Funds+ Hedge Funds and such far outweigh retail owners like me. Any suggestions?

  • Alcatel-Lucent Very Quietly Had A Breakthrough Week [View article]
    I agree. Was management disengaged about all the tech stuff? I bought before the announcement and it's the only time a stock I bought took a dump after the announcement Not happy

    Thanks Jonashad. It was a great concern for me then, but they had very little choice. Management gets a pass on that decision. Ha I am not anti management. Warren certainly has a knack for picking up good deals . BAC for example, with his sort of a bailout of BAC and confidence boosting actions. Made me feel better about the shares I own. I bought a bunch at 6+, some at 7 3/8th and some at 15 +. Still trying to outwait Mr FunFun ( a vocal critic on SA) or the all important SPREAD to help.

    I guess you could point out some of your successes from the past. Might make your petulant rants more acceptable. After all; success affords a degree of tolerance to rude people

    DAG Your view is only that; a view. Your interpretation of my comment is wrong. I can be critical of the business practices of any company I own shares in and I happen to think buy backs are a poor use of capital; as evidenced by many poor results of companies I've seen in the past 50 years. And; there are personal financial reasons for some of these decisions to buy back shares. Not saying that's so here! And; your analysis of the situation might, or might not be right, but the history of predictions has made me extremely wary of same.

    It is not significant. I agree. But I argue against buy backs. In 2003 they had 10 Bill shares out and despite buy backs in several years since, there are still 10 bill shares out. Pay me in cash and keep the shares steady, or reduce them by reverse split if they want fewer shares instead of buy backs. Or better yet buy a viable company with shares where I will own a pc of what they buy. I would sell my 4000 shares but hate to pay Uncle Sam any more. When I pass, the basis is moved up to current price,so?

    Why would GE state this; "synergies expected to double"? Could it be to sugar coat going into a bad deal for shareholders? I already resent the give away of a big part of my company's profits to, " lower the GE share count"! Seems I saw where they gave out 4 +/- million shares to upper management and Board this year.

    "effectively amounting to 20% dividend growth" How in the world do you arrive at this conclusion. It only sells off part of my company to reduce share count so future earnings will look better -- bigger bonuses and such. Its like cutting off my arm to lose weight.

    Why are you Pleased. They are stripping out a chunk of the company and making you pay for it with GE shares.
