A False Alarm for GE Investors

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Andrew discuss the warning by Moody's that it could downgrade both General Electric and GE Capital. Brendan, however, isn't worried about this possible downgrade because it would simply be due to a change in Moody's methodology. He's been impressed by the steps GE has taken to reduce risk at GE Capital, including purchasing MetLife's retail deposit business, and believes that GE is a solid, undervalued play for your portfolio.

GE is one American icon that has done very well overseas, but it's certainly not the only one. There are three other companies whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs. Uncover them in our special free report:  "3 Companies Set to Dominate the World."

    GE has done well on its trade with Iran. Enough said.
