Good News for GE Investors This Week

Today, industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discusses General Electric and its solid results from the Farnborough international airshow this past week. CFM International, the joint venture between GE Aviation and France's Snecma, racked up 922 airplane engine orders, worth a total of $12.6 billion. About $5 billion of the total was from a monster order from United Continental. That's good news for GE as it battles United Technologies subsidiary Pratt & Whitney, its main engine competitor. It's also good news long-term for GE shareholders, who prefer GE to focus on its core industrials business. GE has been doing a much better job of that lately and looks poised for solid top and bottom-line growth in the next few years. Check out the following video for more on GE's week and the future for GE investors.
