I have no idea how GE was years ago, but it's doing okay by me now (as part of a diversified account).

I buy stocks in my IRA and keep them as long as they reward me with growth and/or good dividends. When that changes for the worse, I sell them off in there and look for something else. My Fidelity IRA only charges me $9.95 per trade, so it's no big deal, unless I go nuts with a lot of trades!

Do your homework, consider your goals, and act accordingly!
