General Electric Company - Consistently Profitable and Reliable !
General Electric is consistently and reliable provided profits within the Dow 30 - Industrials composite Companies. It is on a Strong Hold, but like all Large Cap Companies, it follows the Marketplace. That's a positive in Bull Markets but is hurtful in Bear Markets. The trick is to know the difference?
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.
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).
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).
My management on going 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: 3.46%
This week's commentary on General Electric covers all of my indicators, both fundamentally for valuations and technically for momentum. Despite its relatively low dividend it can be a very safe and productive company for Income & Growth Investors.
Forecast w/ Performance:
General Electric Company and other Diversified Companies are tracking the marketplace well.

My current forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon your email request).
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."
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 $77, 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 !

"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."
