I was raised as a Baptist but I soon learned that being Baptist doesn’t keep you from sinning; it just keeps you from enjoying it.
My Comment: Okay this is not scientific, but kind of funny. Morgan Stanley created the “GE Greatometer” which basically tallied all of the times the word “great” was used during their quarterly investor call. You can see as the use of the term “great” falls so does GE share price. My question is, doesn’t Morgan Stanley have anything better to do right now? On a serious note, pay attention to GE’s earnings announcement on 4/17, this will be a big announcement for the overall market and GE. GE’s CEO has mounting pressure to deliver because large and small investors alike are losing confidence in GE.

My Comment: I agree with Ms. Cabrera on balance, but what happens to those hostages that get taken and the insurers don’t pay? Are we willing to accept some possible executions until the pirates get the message that we aren’t paying anymore. I’m also not convinced that a strong (united) military campaign wouldn’t send the message to pirates. Okay, sure the insurers would continue to make some coin, but the premiums should drop if the threat dissipates.
