Dow Jones Review: General Electric

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics around the investing world.

Over the next couple of weeks, John and David will be revisiting some calls they made on individual stocks of the Dow. Today, they take a closer look at General Electric. The company is up a healthy 10% so far in 2012 compared with the Dow gain of around 3% for the year. And GE pays a pretty attractive dividend to boot. Earlier this year, John and David felt that GE would outperform the market over the next five years, and they feel pretty good about that call at the moment. This company got hammered during the financial crisis, but CEO Jeff Immelt has done tremendous job in bringing the company back from the brink. For Immelt and his crew, it's all about going after big markets with innovative technologies. John and David remain confident that General Electric will continue to outperform the market.

General Electric has performed well lately, and it offers one of the highest yields in the Dow, too.
