wow, i just looked at ge's 10 year chart, scary. GE last cut its dividend during the financial crisis of 2009. G.E. shares touched as low as $5.73, on March, 2009 after announcing the 68 % dividend cut. They later rebounded a bit, ending trading down 4.56 percent, or 32 cents, to $6.69.

So it might be a good time to buy GE. The most money I ever made on a stock was buying Bank of America below $6 a share. Buy what others don't want for the best growth.

With Immelt finally gone from GE there is hope for the stock to get back to it's performance levels of the years before Immelt:

General Electric (GE) - 55 Year Stock Split History | MacroTrends

Sigh!!

Not sure how/why he was left in command as long as he was.

I wish I had done that as I already owned some BAC but I bought some self storage REITs dirt cheap instead. They really took off when the financial crisis abated.

I did buy some LVS @ 2.6 when it tanked. Still hold it. Nice dividends now and trading in the 60's. I love sin stocks.

The relentless maw of the 24-hour news cycle must be filled so it gives everybody a place. The blog-o-sphere is full of it, from Seeking Alpha to Forbes.

I remember that 3 for one split. But then hubris kicked in and they got way deep into trying to be in the world of finance. Unrestrained greed.

I like calm waters and could never forgive a dividend cut. That is why I am watching the interference with T.

I admire your optimism.

Or maybe your comment is tongue-in-cheek.

I don’t know.

I truly hope GE really does recover — fast. I know people who work there.

I will watch and hope for the best.

Default Insult Upon Injury

I am aggravated enough by the interference with AT&T and then tonight, while watching the Nightly Business Report, I learned something else to be concerned about.

Investors should be aware that the tax plan in Congress right now has a requirement that investors selling stocks must sell the longest held shares first—taking away the individual’s right to choose which shares to sell. Of course, if passed, this would typically result in a bigger capital gains tax hit to investors who like to take a little profit every now and then.

As those who like to do their own investing know, managing tax hits is a main ingredient in managing income. If this gets through, it is really going to hurt small investors.
