Re: GE Capital

I wont waste time retyping what is happening, it was lost because a mod decided to move this, you mods need to have this software updated so anyone posting at same time can still do so and not be kicked out. Its a spinoff, the current sharholders of GE will be getting = interest in the new company no one is buying anything.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: GE Capital

Actually it is a sale 

They have filed for an IPO of 20% to the public which means stockholders will own the company in general and GE will cut all ties other than the amount it gets from the sale which should lift GE stock due to the IIRC 16-18 billion sale

Right now GE wants to make the portfolio look as profitable as possible to attract investors 

Which means watching every dime until stock opening date so they may get a little stingy...

We shall see

GE RETAIL CAPITAL IS SELLING OFF IT'S CREDIT CARD DIVISION

A article last month stated that ge capital is selling off its credit card division. From my understanding jp morgan chase and a couple of other banks are buying some of its credit accounts and will be in effect by the end of the year. So i wonder is this the end of the credit limit increases?

Re: GE RETAIL CAPITAL IS SELLING OFF IT'S CREDIT CARD DIVISION

They're not selling off the company, they're spinning them off into their own standalone publicly-traded company called Synchrony Financial. Same company, different name (the people who worked for GERCB today, will go to Synchrony next year).
