  • General Electric: Has The Point Of Maximum Pessimism Arrived? [View article]
    LOL.i bought GE in 09 for $7.61@ share. my yield is app.12.1% on investment.these complainers were not smart enough to grab this firm @ a real bargain price & so they blame management.hardly any of the wall st brains saw the oil drop.in fact it wasnt too long ago that we were going to "run out of oil the day after tomorrow".if i had the cash then i would have bought more of GE.the share price means nothing to me.as long as they pay & maybe raise the div what immelt pockets means nothing to me.2009 was the best.i bought the best cos @ real once in a lifetime price.

    the SEC does not do much for the stockholder.remember bernie made-off?think for yourself & do the best you can as the odds are against you unless you are very careful & lucky.

  • Citi-Argentina relations plumb new low [View news story]
    it was S.A. that the nazis fled to after ww2 & they kept them well hidden.yes we took them in also to help our rocket programs but at least it was public knowledge & they were not designated criminals & murderers.argentina was very nazi oriented.just look at their goose stepping army & their uniforms.wasnt it argentina that started the war with U.K. & then complained when their battleship was sunk?with the right good leadership this could be a great country for all its citizens but they keep getting leadership junk.

    there is not much power in voting on wall st.its not a democracy.drips have to be applied to very solid cos over a long time period of time as the divs are paid the increase in holdings increase the divs & so on.so the increases along with savings in fees & costs really add up.very very boring but in the end great results.i agree this co is not a drip co.drips are good for the strongest div paying cos.this is a gamble income producing stock.

    it would seem by now that investors would know the difference between trading & holding for income stocks.i built my whole comfortable retirement on DRIPS with long term holdings of good div paying stocks & avoiding sales & brokerage fees.over 55 years of investing did i have losses-yes.did things change-yes.was there more luck than brains-yes.unless you have lots of cash or are an insider i think its hard to make a living playing the wall st game.
