General Electric's Winning Trifecta
Reason #3 that GE is a win-win-win is the company's leadership is investing in its most profitable divisions. Those include aircraft engines, power generation technology, water processing and filtration, medical imaging equipment and its energy-efficient lighting models and household appliances.
If you spend a few minutes perusing its user-friendly investor relations website you'll get a sense that GE is focusing on areas where the big returns on investment will be in the quarters ahead.
The CEO's compensation has even been linked to performance milestones like improving EPS and return on invested capital. I like it when the officers of a company have an incentive to boost the share price and reward investors.
GE's longtime motto said "we bring good things to life". Shareholders are likely to experience those good things, including generous dividends, a lucrative spinoff and company efforts to goose the share price higher over the next 12 months.At the time of publication, the author held GE but had no positions in any of the other stocks mentioned.
