What are you guys looking at?
I like ATT. Stay patient and rake in dividends. I also like KNDI. Again, stay patient.
Anyone have a child car seat I can borrow Feb 21 to 24? Contact Peter Irwin: 352-753-7433

While I depend on that pension income, from a stock buying perspective, that's what ten foot poles are made for
Thank you. As soon as you said, “Immelt,” I remembered conversations about him. We did not work for GE but know people who did.

I remember conversations about Welch, too. During his reign, he took them into finance — the beginning of the end??

And then came Immelt.

I understand what you mean about magic and mirrors.

It has been sad to see the demise of GE. It was once known as a company that took care of its business and its people and its investors. But unrestrained greed is bad economics.

I appreciate your answer about IBM. The dividend and being so far off its 52-week high got my attention. But I don’t know anything about Red Hat. Thank you for the perspective.

I'm a former GE employee (GE Aerospace until it was acquired by Martin Marietta/Lockheed Martin) and a graduate of GE's Financial Management Program. In those days GE was proud of its tradition of conservative, accurate accounting methods, and you could trust their financial statements as accurate. That's no longer true. Jack was a great CEO who fell under the spell of "easy money" in financial services, then Immelt took over and completely screwed up the company. Jack's selection of Immelt as his successor should go down in history as the worst decision ever by a CEO. This is from a USA Today article in 2018: "When Jack Welch turned the keys of the General Electric Co. over to Jeff Immelt in 2001, GE was a well-run and greatly admired profit machine, stocked with exceptional management talent and innovative practices. Over the next 16 years, while Immelt held the top job, he completely demolished the House that Jack Built."

We must have been in some of the same conversations, maybe not in the same town, but the same talk, as things were changing at GE.

Yes. Neutron Jack. And then —

Where I am from, a job with GE or PG was the goal of a lot of us. We thought those two companies would be forever.

I dare say, that all of us have had percentage losses...that dwarf that $45M.
As to mind control.
MY POINT is truly simple. Buffet looses 45 million and says it is a bad day. Was I to loose 45 million there would be a lot of people wondering why they LENT ME that kind of money.

A person at age 86 talking about investing long term? The actuarial tables will question his sanity.

The term BUFFET LIKE is mass denial of reality.

One of my close relatives wants to get into dividend stocks. I told him to start looking at the sites I mentioned here. (I would never tell him what to buy. But I will show him where to learn to make his own decisions.)

And I can tell you right now, he will love this site. He is highly analytical and this looks like exactly the kind of info he will use to the max.

Your link gives me another, and better, for him, source to share with him.

Thank you for showing this site to us.

I would never, but, a close friend decided to help his nephew.

I told my friend if his nephew makes money he will declare how smart he is if he looses he will declare you misadvised him-either way you loose.

Unfortunately, I was right.
