    General Electric Company - Consistently Profitable and Reliable - Except

    General Electric Company consistently and reliable provided profits within the Dow 30 - Industrials composite Companies. It is on a Hold, but like all Large Cap Companies, it follows the Marketplace. That's a positive in Bull Markets but is financially very hurtful in Bear Markets. The trick is to know the difference? I DO !

    The highs of $28. this year to the lows of $24. should be telling you much about the Market and about GE. Are you listening?

    You may want to review my previous articles on GE (just click). They will provide you with the exact history of my Forecasting / Formal Recommendations for Clients. I preach "selectivity" and that can be both calculated and quantified. Perspective of one Company vs. others within an Industry Group becomes a powerful tool for maximizing profits.

    My Performance for General Electric can be found in my table below and is about 34% per annum for the last 5 years. (not including dividends).

    More Support for My Dow 30 Forecasting Accuracy

    The following article supports my Methodology of "Investing Wisely" and with superior and consistent annual profits. Just Click.

    My on going management 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.

    A Special Note for Seniors & Retired Investors - Dividend Yield: 3.42%

    Forecast w/ 5 Year Performance:

    General Electric Company and other Diversified Companies are tracking the marketplace well.

    Note: The below Table is for your review, questions and perhaps thoughts. If you are seeking to "Invest Wisely" in my "Income & Growth Asset Allocation Model," please email me to open a dialog on how I go about providing superior performance with a very low threshold of risk.

    My Current Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon your email request).

    (click to enlarge)

    If you own or are considering owning diversified companies, the securities are becoming a mixed bag. General Electric is currently relatively strong technically, but I have reservations and have placed it on my Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."

    That means: I am cautiously and continuing to HOLD - Nike, Inc. since having sent Formal Recommendations in May 2009 to my Clients -- the Public never sees my timely Email communications to my Clients until well after my - Emailing those Formal Recommendations - - - I do respond to prospective Client's - Questions and Thoughts. )

    My Current Opinion is to Hold in anticipation of taking profits. This may be at even higher prices, but there will be an end and time to sell, but that is not currently in my forecast. That is a balancing of my below three (weighted) pillars of research.

    * Fundamentally - ( weighting - - 40% ): My Analytics for my fundamental valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. Earnings continue to be only moderate.

    * Technically - ( weighting - - 35%): Within this outstanding company, my indicators remain strong. It is only slightly off its highs of $27, is selling for $25.

    * 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 !

    A Twenty Year Perspective of General Electric Company

    General Electric has taken some big hits over the years!

    URL for (20-years of -(NYSE:GE):

    "Selectivity" is what I preach (along with discipline and patience) and is what separates the average investor and mutual funds from the profits that come with long-hours / hard work and "selectivity."

    Here are a number of the Component Companies / Peers in the Aerospace Industry Group that I focus on rather frequently if you wish to follow me: (GE), (NYSE:MMM), (NYSE:ETN), (NYSE:TYC), (NYSE:HON), (NYSE:CSL), (SI), (NYSE:ATU), (OTCPK:TOSBF). And, more . . .

    A relationship between You and Your Asset Manager must be a "Win / Win" affair. You get the Performance and the Education and I get paid for my Analytics / Work and Experience.
