  • Is It Time To Consider General Electric? [View article]
    I'm a post 2008er and retired. I own GE in an IRA. I'm going to hang in for a few more years to see what 2016 brings to US getting back into manufacturing, space and technology leadership positions.

    Three areas GE could break out are: Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Nano Technology and Technical Skills Education.

  • General Electric's Latest Discovery May Transform The LED And LCD Display Industry [View article]
    I'm long and have been buying a bit more recently. I'm not a sophisticated investor but I get GE reports FREE newsletter every day and am constantly amazed by all of the new technologies they are piling up. With the growing Skills Gap / Skills Shortage in manufacturing two areas to watch are the Maker Movement / 3D Printing http://bit.ly/1q0Q4jN and workforce development / education http://bit.ly/1q0Q2IC . With GE's depth of technology and training resources they could become leaders in helping the nation to rebuild and reconfigure advanced manufacturing while at the same time improving educational pathways and outcomes for our nations youth. Both of these areas are loaded with strong bipartisan political clout, national good will and most importantly bottom line favorability.

  • A Shift In The Fueling Paradigm Is Coming, Driven By Tesla Motors [View article]
    Tesla, EM, is as much about innovation as EV's. EM's innovation will have benefits far beyond Tesla. He is doing the same thing with SpaceX and SolarCity. It's all about electricity from the sun. √out this video about EM http://bit.ly/1hb2TXN

  • Analysts weigh in on Tesla's gigafactory; BAML reaffirms $65 PT [View news story]
    800 mile battery = end of ICE. I believe this is EM's goal with giga factory. Lots of R&D not just more cheaper LI batteries. I believe Nanotechnology and Graphene will play a significant role http://bit.ly/1og2lmy . I'll bet new batteries will not be just for TESLA but will be used by Solar City, SpaceX and other manufacturers looking for longer life, smaller size & lighter battery designs. EM always plans on multiple levels which lowers risk and increases potential gains. This may have been what the recently reported Apple discussions were about?

  • Tesla Motors races higher on Morgan Stanley PT hike [View news story]
    Maybe the discussions with Apple were 180 degrees from what everyone thought :) If EM figures out an 800 mile battery that is lighter and faster to charge ICE is history. I'm glad EM has not left for his Mars colony yet. We still need him here. Great interview with EM http://bit.ly/1hb2TXN Enjoy

  • The Twitter Post-Earnings Trade Pivots On Increasingly Negative Sentiment [View article]
    We use Twitter to announce content curation posts to other social media like Pinterest, FB and Scoop-It. Periodically we use Twitter as SEO for our website. #Hashtag use has helped us to grow Twitter "real" followers 5-10 per day. I'm seeing more and more manufacturers now getting twitter accounts. My guess is for B2B marketing. We do a very minor amount of promoted $$ tweets right now. However, whenever we do it has a significant effect on follower growth. I'm sure down the road we will do much more.

    I'd be interested to know what percentage Political Ads make up of Twitters income stream. 2014 & 2016 should be huge for social media as the Rep. party is now figuring out how to best use SM.

    Trying to be like FB is not being different. Twitters power is in brevity and link redirection. What twitter lacks is images. Twitter needs to buy Pinterest where images are king.

  • Twitter's Strategy For Addressing Slowing User Growth [View article]
    I'm waiting patiently now for the teens. Twitter is an amazing medium but will never be facebook unless it finds another way to connect visually and with more extended content. Pinterest is the way IMHO. Let's just wait and see.
    Hope you enjoy our work. It's all about helping our kids futures.

  • Twitter's Strategy For Addressing Slowing User Growth [View article]
    I'm long and got in the day before the fall. Pretty dumb but true. Now for why I like twitter. My website http://bit.ly/1aRhgQv is basically a content provider promoting manufacturing and STEM ed. Most manufacturers are on twitter and pay close attention to their accounts. I have also found Pinterest http://bit.ly/1cDqmid to be where most of our content customers, families & educators, are avid users. So I pin then tweet the content. Proving to be a successful SM strategy so far. I've also noticed that most Pinterest users do not indicate they have a twitter account in their account banner panes. My guess is only 25%. Since Pinterest is one of the fastest growing SM platforms I think twitter should acquire Pinterest before someone else does. This would give them a huge new pool of potential twitter users. It would also increase tweet traffic and provide twitter advertisers a fantastic new visual market in Pinterest. Finally I learned a good investment lesson. Never buy an IPO stock the day before their first QTR Rpt!
