3M (NYSE:MMM) surprised investors when it announced 5.8% organic growth in the third quarter, up from just 2.6% last year. That outstripped General Electric's (NYSE:GE) industrial growth of 3% and DuPont's (NYSE:DD) non-agriculture growth of 2.3%, showing just how far 3M is ahead of other diversified manufacturers. The question for investors: Will the growth continue?
