NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- General Electric (GE)'s energy infrastructure unit was stronger than many analysts expected in the first quarter, suggesting several stocks that play in the same space may be worth a look.
Energy infrastructure turned in revenues of $8.66 billion, better than four of six analyst estimates I reviewed, and also better than the average of their estimates, which was $8.59 billion.
GE's energy infrastructure business is massive, including everything from oil and gas and coal to wind, water. GE said electricity demand was still weak in developed markets, though it showed signs of improvement.
