My Performance for Johnson & Johnson can be found below and is well over 34% per year for the last 5 years.
I have completed my weekly study of all my High Profile Industrial / Diversified Industrials. This is a study that sparks me just a bit because I have spent so many years in gaining experience in the study of Companies like (GE). It is like visiting with an old friend, in my case for over 50 years.
My objective is to identify changing trends for my Forecasting Analytics. Simple stated, I want to have current notes to quickly refer to on the anticipated direction of this Sector and Industry Group.

Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
General Electric Company and other Industrial Sector Companies are tracking the General Market quite well. Although (GE) remains in a strong long-term Rally it is both a time for concern. It is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics. My Forecasts have remained positive and on a "Hold" since early 2009. I am now Very Cautious.
Forecasted Performance - - - Bullish Cycle - - Still Performing Well:
The below Table is for your review, questions and perhaps thoughts. If you are seeking, what I call "Pazazz Performance" - - please Email me to open a dialog.
Typically, "Pazazz Performance" does not come from Companies like (GE). In good times this conservative giant does the job quite well along with paying a decent dividend.

Thanks for your interest in my Forecasts - work / analytics . . .
My Current Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon request).
If you own or are considering owning Industrial Companies, the securities are currently and definitely a mixed bag, that means both strong and weak. General Electric Company is currently strong Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, therefore, I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."
My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.
Fundamentally - ( weighting - - 40% ): My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (GE) are not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources. Plainly stated they are Improving and then Descending again. This does not make for a positive fundamental valuation of any Company for a long-term Hold.
Technically - ( weighting - - 35% ): Even with this fine Company, my Indicators are notably breaking down. It is continuing to present investors with new highs at $27. The previous rally has kept it well beyond my cautious warning above, but things do and will change and I will be there when they do.
Consensus Opinion - ( weighting - - 25% ): My third pillar of Research is one that is ALWAYS distorted to the Positive by most all financial analysts. That's because they are afraid of being Bearish. I Am NOT! My articles on "Reality" are supportive of the below 20 year Chart.
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (GE) !
