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.
Boeing is fighting simply a high valuation after rising over 80% last year, which led the Dow. As a result, expectations were extremely high, and when management predicted flat profit for 2014 the stock was hit hard.
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.
