General Electric in 2011 purchased two companies, paying billions. They did not give an increase in their dividends. They lowered them from .31 to .10 and now they are at .15. Today, 22 JUL they just reported 21.6% increase in overseas sales growth watch and see how much the investor gets "0" I used to think GE was a great company, NO MORE...

Sure the stock will go up, but that is not what I was talking about...GE all during this recession could easily have paid .31 all along. They didn't pay one cent in taxes. They are not looking out for the investor and giving dividends accordingly.

All stocks will go up eventually, but the point is that GE could have treated their investors a lot better and paid a better dividend.

So how many decades will it take for GE share dividends to get back to where they once were?
