NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- General Electric Co. (GE)  shares are higher 0.66% to $31.32 on Monday after Citigroup analysts made bullish comments about its power business earlier today. 

This comes after analysts visited the company's gas turbine facility in Greenville, SC, noting, "We do know a well-run facility when we see it," according to Barron's.

Along with this positive sentiment, the firm believes GE could show mid-teens EPS growth through 2018, given its acquisition of AlsomSA's power business, which was completed at the end of 2015. 

Additionally, the company's enhanced digital capability should result in a significantly improved competitive position, analysts noted.

As GE continues to shed its banking business and focus more on its core industrial units, Citigroup remains optimistic on the company's progress.
