The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool editors Andrew Tonner and Brendan Byrnes search for value in the market.

In today's edition, Brendan and Andrew look at an American icon that has been refocusing its business. GE has put up six straight quarters of double-digit operating earnings growth. And the firm expects to continue that double-digit operating earnings-per-share growth through 2012, impressive in this economic environment for a company that is so heavily exposed to the macro economy. GE is getting back to basics, focusing on infrastructure and energy segments after selling off 51% of NBC Universal to Comcast.  Add in the fact that we expect a dividend increase in the near future, and it may be time to take another look at GE.
