With all due respect you sir, GE has 10 TIMES STRONGER Financials than your KO-Coca Cola. Last 4 years, your KO revenue PLUMMETED 25% to tinny $35 Billion, WIPPEDOUT 85% of Profit, only DEBT $46 BILLION went up and it's much higher than revenue. Only reason KO Coca Cola being PUMPED up is because Wallstreet wants to protect 1%, Mr. Buffet. So, sir, Please count your blessings in the form of Banks MANIPULATING stocks in your favor, and HURTING MANIPULATION acts on us retail little investors. GE is most held by retail mom & pops, therefore it's always a target by Wallstreet BASHING and stealing their valuable assets..
Goldn Messi (24 days ago)
Truth hurts. Just compare MUCH SUPERIOR FINANCIALS of GE..vs..KO PLUMMETING financials, yet KO stock is PUMPED UP DOUBLE to GE...

So do you really think buffet is going to say he is buying ge? Dumb question. He wont say because he wants the price to drop further.you will have to wait about 6 months to find out

For all the negative comments about Joe’s interviewing skills, he was fine! He was trying to get WB to admit on air, in come context or another, that he regrets investing in air. That’ll be a big deal to get a legendary investor like WB to admit he regret investing in a company. But Joe didn’t get what he wanted, so he kept circling around the drain. He’s not the most skillful at it. I wouldn’t be surprise if he follows Maria Bartranomo’s path down the lines and join Fox News, personality wise he fits there.

this is what happens when you invest like warren buffet. buying companies based on fundamental analysis. the way warren buffet invest is no different from gambling. thinking a company is good and buy and hold long term - this is dumbest strategy in the world

There was a rule in Communist China that 5 percent of the population was counterreulutionary and needed attention. GE took over the same rule and decided that 10 percent of the employes needed attantion. So if you wonder why noone in GE got any warning signals, you can figure that out now.

About 2005 I worked at GE as an engineering contractor. At that time, GE was outsourcing its engineering to India. This was a complete disaster and they hired a bunch of old engineers like me to re-work the engineering from India. At the time I asked my manager why bother to go to India? You might as well give it to us old timers and cut out the middleman. The manager looked at me and said, “God has said that outsourcing is good. No one contradicts God. Besides, you guys are charged to the contract and no one cares as long as you are not charged to overhead.” So, we kept working. What I found at GE was that there were a ton of these Sigma 7 engineers that looked good, dressed right. Our manager was typical, she had spent several years in compliance and HR. She was sigma 7 certified. But, she had never gotten her feet wet. Frankly, she had little real world experience. And that was the problem with GE. There weren’t people there who had gotten their feet dirty walking an oil field or a factory. The guys who really knew what was going on were either old or retired.

I am not sure whether GE is involved in parts of the insurance industry, but if they are and this is one of the reasons for the decline. One of the things that is always risky is the fact of it's future foresight. Who really knows what will come out in it projections. Because as a lot of people have been watching. When huge payouts are not forecasted. It can throw a lot of the industry into turmoil. Causing these huge declines. This may not be the case here, but if it is then someone needs to take a real close look at the way they take on clients. Investors should also know when you watch lines up and down or completely down. It's identical to watching an individual having a heart attack, and the doctors are trying to stabilize the patient. It has to be done by the experts to be successful.

Buffet is a mistake. CNBC is a mistake. Obama was a mistake. Bush 2 was a mistake. Bill Clinton was a mistake. (I call these Presidents, the three duds in a row.) Globalism is a mistake. I could go on and on...

He "acts" like a nice old man. He would not be one of the richest man on Earth if he is a "nice" man when he makes his business decision. It is a man eats man world.

Joe, when you are in the zone, you can be very pithy, witty, and incisive. Recently, your statements are seemingly rambling and incoherent like a man on a barstool long after closing time. You are at heart an intellectual and scientist yet trying to play the role of a game show host here outside your sphere. If you want to be a game show host, call Pat the wheel show host for advice. Your babbling is unsettling and a trainwreck of an interview style. Bartender please mute CNBC, and send me a tequila sunrise. NOW!!!!!!

Read between the lines. Jeff and him are friends. He just admitted so they made a deal with means buffet bought shares at a lower price then it is now so he is betting on it bouncing back not this year but long term. Buy GE

to be honest, this is a perfect example of a woman doing a job FAR better than a man, Joe is completely incoherent and should never have been allowed to talk to Mr Buffett​
Craig Smith (1 month ago)
Men are better at most things but I agree in this circumstance the woman is far better at interviewing than joe
PS Wen (7 months ago)
Agree the male host is unprepared and often rude. I always has to skip the first part when he is talking.
Mannie (7 months ago)
Seriously, Joe is freaking annoying and adds nothing to the interview. He is like that guy who went to the same high school as you and acts like you were best friends with him though you barely know the guy. I really dislike when he speaks.

God this guy joe is annoying as **** Would have really loved for Buffett to elaborate on the mistakes Berkshire has made too in regards to insurance. Joe really needs to control his demeanor and let other participants have their FULL say on a matter before he goes on interrupting them..... it’s VERY unprofessional

Joe is a moron. Has been for years. Why CNBC allow him to remain on air is baffling. Check out this gem where he calls Buffett lazy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF9KA549bQw Let me know if you agree, or is there more to this guy?

So for the first time in history Warren buffett was wrong because the Trump administration failed it like puerto rico and the recent victims of the florida school shooting. I knew this government was no good but it is amazing how much it is willing to let the USA crumble. Pull your money out of american stocks people. Wake up or shut up.
Hao Wu (7 months ago)
How do they let John on air?! This man is an insult to the intellect of viewers of this show.
John Ainikkal (7 months ago)
Joe doesn't bring in anything of value in any of these conversations with Warren Buffet and sounds lost when he does try. Maybe it's the response time lag but he brings the quality of the interview down significantly and wastes a lot of time.
