Lesguns, why do you hope G.E. sells of their appliance devision? Are you a share holder?
Who would G.E. sell it to? Maybe Whirlpool, Sear or LG?
If G.E. feels they are not making enough profit on their appliance devision now I would think one of the first thing anyone buying it would look at is how they could cut cost. This may mean lay offs and yet cheaper materials being put into building their appliances.
I just don't see how G.E. selling off their appliance devision could be a good thing.
