  • General Electric Has A Diverse Business Model To Keep It Out Of Trouble  [View article]
    I think GE, particularly w/ Immelt at the helm, has earned all the hate it gets.

    If they had a dividend of 5%+, and DIDN'T CUT IT, then I could see Immelt and co telling the haters to shove it.

    Until then-no.

    Great points, Harm-thank you.

    I know my post is kinda of a Don Quixote type of idea, but I was answering the question (" I would like to hear from the readers on what you would be willing to pay for. What would be valuable information for you?"-David Zanoni)

    Many of the positions I monitor are buy and hold and reinvest, but there are a couple that I'm willing to go to cash occasionally but the WHEN (to sell) is always the big deal. If I can save $10-15k by going to cash for 30-90 days, I'll do it. That's all I was saying. I realize timing the market is a fools' errand, but (every once in a while) it's possible, AND a good idea (my 401k only lost 12% in 2008 b/c I was paying attention and got out before Lehman, et al).

    PSEC loves amateurs...be vey-wee, vey-wee careful with your $ here. As someone else sorta mentioned, quicksand can be very difficult to get out of...by yourself.

    <<All you haters.... Why are you still following this stock? Move on already and stop wasting pixels with the same old whine.>>

    Agreed. PSEC mgmt not interested in what retail investors think. They know greed for (monthly) income will get the best of most of them.

    Agree with your outlook, Adrian.

    The pain is not over for dollar bears or PM bulls imo. Better chances to buy coming up.

    Here also, as much as it sickens me to see this sad charade take place.

    I don't have a huge investment (Thank God!!), and most of that is from having held QRE, but I'm holding on to see if this ship hits the iceberg or finds calm waters.

  • Philip Morris: A Dividend Cut Is Possible  [View article]
    If things do get worse, and they freeze the div or barely add to it, the pps would take a hit just from that.

    I think investors will get a chance to buy near $70 sometime this year, maybe high $60s.
