Can Boeing and General Electric Recover in 2014?

The two worst stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) so far this year are industrial giants Boeing (NYSE: BA  ) and General Electric (NYSE: GE  ) . But neither company is struggling, especially as the energy and aerospace industries boom.

General Electric continues to shed financial services as it transitions to a more industrial company, but like Boeing its revenue and profits are up as it bets on industries like energy and aerospace. Check out the following slideshow to find out more about how these companies are doing.
