Personal finance and investing megathread extravaganza

I know lewdog (and maybe others) have mentioned the desire to have a place to chat about personal finance stuff. We'll see if there's enough interest to keep this going in the long-term, but at least for now, here's a place to chat about whatever personal finance topics come up.

I can attain Edward Jones is stupid high and it is the worst preformer. I am going to hold though because they are draftin out of my account and I got 3 quarters of withdrawals in there which is good saving for me. So they have to eat.and at-least for now I am executing saving some money. But yeah if I was a boss I would be doing a lot better. I still think people get wrapped up in penny pinching when people at those firms got to eat as well. I feel better day in and day out knowing that I am happier sharing the wealth than being a penny pinching guy. Obviously strategy but hey I haven't been so miserable that I kill myself. Hi five!

Jesus. So you own just under $20,000 of GE stock by itself?

I feel poor.

What's your thinking on this?

Long term hold?

Short term gain, sell, profit?

I've had a very small amount of GE since 2008. Bought at $20.37. It's been a pretty meh investment. In retrospect, I should've sold when it went above $30 in 2016 and/or in 2017.

Dividends haven't been bad over the years, but now it sounds like they might cut them.

Suppose if you think it will quickly get back to $30+...

EDIT: I see GE cut its dividend in half. Blech...

Two year hold.....minimum. I see little downside here as there is no reason to believe they had any accounting fraud, just horrible spending problems.

Jim Cramer said it best, they ran the place like a country club for the last 10 years.

I would have bought X when Hog Farmer did at $20 but I had no free cash at the time. I knew that was a good buy.

Just under $18,000.

I can laugh at him because I have GE as well.

I may buy some more. It's not like GE is going to go out of business.
