In the video below, Motley Fool analysts Isaac Pino and Austin Smith discuss some key areas General Electric investors should be watching.
GE is such a large company with so many divisions, it's often difficult for investors to get a handle on exactly what they should be paying attention to. It is moving jobs back into the United States, which shows that the company is really analyzing where the costs are most effective around the world. With products, such as household appliances, becoming more computer-driven, GE is making a bet that its technology is more important than its labor costs. Also, the company has been making bets on the growth of natural gas.
These are important management decisions for investors to watch. If GE again changes course, it could indicate that the company's management made the wrong bet.
