Why do us common folk give a crap who is still doing well in big business? Most of them have off shored their workforce and just flood us with electronic toys to occupy our time and distract us while they get rich running our country in to the ground.

They want us to still buy the Reagon trickle down theory that had to many americans kissin the a$$es of big business in hopes that they would create jobs here! LOL Instead they out sourced or jobs, paid off the government, raised our credit limits so we would bury ourselves in debt and then let the Banks repo and forclose on us poor working class,

Our government doesn't give a damn about small business or the real working class, they have helped build the biggest monopolies in the world and the only thing that trickles down to us from those greedy ba$terds is debt and wars!

AT&T beat the recession by screwing over folks with poor customer service and spotty coverage. Then you can bend over for 2 years because your in a contract baby!

of course AT&T is reaping huge profits.  They laid off thousands of their workers, are now trying to cut their wages, and rape you on your phone bill.  Hope you weren't grandfathered into the "unlimited" plan b/c if you were, you probably have service so slow that it renders your Internet useless.  Ask anyone that works for that company how well they are treated and see what they say.  AT&T does not care about their workers or their customers.

AT&T beat the recession by padding bills and lying to their customers. They offered DSL service to new customers at $24.95 a month for 12 months and then once the service started, the custmomer never saw the discounted rate. What a scam! This is one company the FTC needs to be investigating. MSN should be ashamed of their selves for including this company in their article !

Somebody said the recession was over in June, 2009.  WE continue to lose money over at our house, down 77,700.00 in the three and a half years this lame president has been in office.  The recession is over, it turned into a depression in July 2009.

Kramer, your an idiot by naming IBM as A top company.  IBM is off shoring jobs in the US in record numbers.  Evidently you could care less about the American workers.

I'm glad to see Cramer put my ex on the list, PPG.  PPG, like a lot of companies took the route of cutting long serving, dedicated employees.  I was axed after nearly 20 years of dedicated work due to the down turn in the company.  After 5 monthes I was offered my exact job back minus medical benefits, retirement, vacation, and 25% wage.  Glad I was able to help put PPG back on track.

In GE's case it doesn't hurt to be on the government gravy train, as one of Obama's lap dogs, and don't pay taxes or millions of dollars in outstanding bills.

AT&T profits because they rip people off, send out false statements and most wont contact a lawyer like we did. BUYER BEWARE!

ATT also added a data usage limit to their DSL service with additional charges for going over it. I dropped them and went back to cable, I am sure many others did too. Poor decision considering their DSL is not the fastest or the only High Speed service available. As for their cellular service I am so glad they didn't purchase T-Mobile because I would have had to drop that too. Their cellular service i overpriced and spotty at best.

I have to agree with the other commenters. AT&T is a thug of a company. They think they can lock people into a 2 yr contract, then steal and treat em like dogshit. I payed the early cancelation fee just to get away from them. My U-Verse worked okay, but they were always scamming me on my bill, so I canceled that as well. I'm so sick of the scams............ Just go away AT&T!

Market index data delayed by 15 minutes

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market punctuated July with a broad-based retreat that sent the S&P 500 lower by 2.0% with all ten sectors ending in the red. The benchmark index posted a monthly decline of 1.5%, while the Russell 2000 (-2.3%) underperformed to end the month lower by 6.1%.

To get a better feel for what led to today's retreat, we'd like to look back to Wednesday, when the market had ample reason to rally, but did not. Instead, it ended basically flat after a sloppy day of ... More
