GE: Can We Trust Management?

In the following video, Fool analysts Isaac Pino and Austin Smith talk about what investors should be looking for in General Electric's management.

Management is an often overlooked but critical aspect of analyzing a a potential investment. In the case of GE, faith in management is essential for investors, Isaac says. Since the economic collapse, GE has pivoted away from the financial sector and back to its industrial roots. At the same time, the company is making investments in technology and energy to drive GE into the future, including investments in wind, solar, and natural gas.

Isaac likes a lot of what CEO Jeff Immelt is doing at GE. And Austin points out that GE has developed into a known "management curator," developing executives who often go on to run other corporations. That speaks well of those who remain at the top of GE.

Lately, GE's management has been making strategic bets in energy and technology. If you're a GE investor, you need to understand how these bets could drive this company to become the world's infrastructure leader. At the same time, you need to be aware of the threats to GE's portfolio. To help, we're offering comprehensive coverage for investors in a premium report on General Electric, in which our industrials analyst breaks down GE's multiple businesses. You'll find reasons to buy or sell GE, and you'll receive continuing updates as major events unfold during the year. To get started, click here now.
