  • General Electric Is Making The Right Moves To Grow [View article]
    Great! I'm on board! GE MUST be a great company with "marvelous" leadership so I think I'll buy some shares today. But wait a minute! GE has done NOTHING for fifteen years. Maybe there is a reason for this performance. No, on second thought I don't think I'll buy any shares of GE.

  • Is It The Right Time To Buy General Electric Stock? [View article]
    GE will be a dog "forever". There is no incentive inside the company to be successful. (Managers and directors get paid one way or the other.)

  • General Electric: Yield And Growth At A Good Price [View article]
    The only "synergy" from the Alstom deal is that anyone left working in Schenectady will soon be dealing blackjack to senior citizens (and prostitutes) at a new casino in the city. All because Immelt needed to feed his ego on his way out of the company.

  • General Electric's Latest Discovery May Transform The LED And LCD Display Industry [View article]
    Most "breakthroughs" at GE come from their PR department. If the GE board had any interest in the future, they break up the company.

  • High-Yielding General Electric Should Provide A Higher Yield Soon [View article]
    The SYF "spinoff" is a form of theft from GE shareholders. GE shareholders own ALL the shares of SYF held by the company. Immelt and the (other) directors should be facing criminal charges and prison for not delivering those shares to their owners! If I had the resources, I'd be suing.

  • GE Cutting Fat, Getting Ready To Grow Again [View article]
    GE shares are falling in value these days because the GE directors have no intention of transferring its SYF shares to their rightful owners (GE shareholders). Instead, the company is planning to "sell" these shares back to current shareholders by exchanging SYF shares for GE common shares later. This is touted by the company as being "tax free", which of course it is, because GE shareholders will be getting ZERO net value for the exchange (if they choose to exchange). The GE shares collected from exchange will then be distributed to GE managers in the form of BONUSES. One would think that a shareholder with deep pockets could afford to sue the directors to turn the SYF shares DIRECTLY over to their rightful owners. 85% of SYF outstanding shares belong to GE shareholders, NOT GE managers!

  • General Electric Is Not Getting Any Respect [View article]
    The risk is the that GE won't be able to execute (make money from) its ongoing operations, which is exactly the same problem GE has had since the mid-90's. GE is too big, too slow, and way too expensive (too many layers of management) to compete in their markets.

    Nobody is "off their rocker". The GE share price is not "an anomaly." All the recent (high profile) changes at GE have little or no effect on company operations. Wall St. is pricing GE shares for what it is: a very risky way to get 3.3% return on your investment. That's it.

  • GE: Fair Value Is About $35 [View article]
    In professional circles, the GE “research laboratory” in upstate NY is a well-known joke. Managers there “playoff”one scientist against another to determine who’s productive and who isn’t. GE got the idea years ago from Bell Labs (now Lucent-Alcatel) and it was later used at Enron. This is the one policy which guarantees that nothing gets accomplished, as most commercial technologies are too complicated for one person. Of course, each scientist is responsible for raising funds to pay for his (or her) work, including management salaries. (Yes, that’s right, scientists performing telemarketing.) This assignment ultimately uses up most of the time available for performing useful scientific or engineering work. GE was under performing other companies long before its collapse ’07. To understand why GE shareholders lost $400 billion since 1999, you don’t have to look any further than “GE Research.”

  • GE: Fair Value Is About $35 [View article]
    GE shares will never increase until the (big) shareholders get together and force changes to the board and management and the size of the company. GE is too big. Immelt is a failure. Break up the company so shareholders get their value back.

  • General Electric's Second Quarter Earnings Were Electrifying To Me [View article]
    GE has done nothing since 1999. There are reasons. Inept management is one of them.

    GE shares won't get to $30 this decade. GE managers have no clue what they're doing.
