I am in at $12.71 with a small position.If it is able to make a "come back", it will take a significant amount of time, but the potential is there. I have had it on my watch list for a long time at $12.75, waiting for it to come down to me. It could… More

just don't see any innovation to help this bloated & poisoness mess other than massive restructure that will render this thing unrecognizable

After the typical over-reaction of the market, GE seems to have reached a floor around $12.75/$13. Once the recovery plan starts to show results, I expect an over-reaction in a positive direction.

This is my short PSA for the GE true believers:

If you don't understand what principle based reserving for long term care insurance policies (LTC) entails, and you don't understand the terms Active Life Reserves (ALR) and Disabled Life Reserves (DLR), you probably shouldn't be risking your money on this stock. The insurance business is EXTREMELY complex, made even more so by the very complex rules around reserving your insurance business. For the insurance novice, reserves are when a company puts aside a chunk of money that "estimates" its future losses on a certain block of business. That is the money that is expected to cover future claims. To add to these difficulties, try comprehending the two different sets of accounting books, GAAP and Statutory. Talk about confusing.

I don't believe that GE has any interest in being an insurance company any longer, This has led to some very bad decisions regarding reserving. I don't think they're anywhere close to righting this business. If you understand the 1980's and 1990's blocks of LTC that GE has reinsured (there is information out there for the investors who really dig), you also understand the incredible amount of risk associated with these blocks of business. The losses GE could suffer from these blocks is almost limitless. They MUST continue paying benefits on their LTC claims until the policyholders pass away - and in some cases, the amount of benefits these policyholders receive are not capped. You thought the $15BB in future losses to reserving is bad? I think this is just the beginning of a long series of reserving corrections over the next 5-10 years. Don't believe me? Just look at how Genworth Financial (GNW) was almost destroyed over LTC reserving. My guess is that GE stock falls to $7.50-$8 range and then stabilizes - but until there is more clarity into their reserving practices, I don't think the pain and bleeding will dissipate.

I just don't think this keeps pace to the market. However, GE is too big to just wash...wait, they sold that division, I think? This may be a good investment eventually, but it seems a wait and guess when to get in to me.
