2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on General Electric Co

Gabelli Funds Comments on General Electric Co. - Aug 04, 2016

General Electric Co. (NYSE:GE) (3.3%) (GE – $26.57 – NYSE) is an industrial conglomerate based in Fairfield, Connecticut, with leading positions in power, energy, healthcare, and aviation equipment, services, and financing. GE has materially downsized its finance business through the 2014 spinoff of Synchrony Financial and the sale of most of its finance verticals. Financial businesses will be retained in healthcare, energy financial services, and aviation to support key industrial businesses. The company recently became the first institution to be de-designated as a Systemically Important Financial Institution (SIFI), providing more balance sheet flexibility and allowing the company to buy back upwards of $50 billion of stock. On the industrial side, GE is integrating its $10 billion acquisition of Alstom’s power assets, broadening its scale and capabilities. It is also ramping up production of its efficient H-turbine for power plants and its LEAP engine for the next generation of fuel efficient narrowbody aircraft. Finally, GE is aggressively building out its digital capabilities, focusing on the remote monitoring and optimization of its installed base. The transformation of GE, now almost complete, is creating a focused industrial company capable of driving high single digit earnings growth while paying a progressive dividend.

Bill Nygren and David Herro Comments on General Electric - Oct 08, 2015

We added one new name to the Fund during the quarter: General Electric (NYSE:GE), the global producer of industrial, household and medical goods. GE is a company with businesses we have always admired, but we have previously questioned the stock’s valuation and management’s focus on returns when making capital allocation decisions. However, the appointment of a new CFO in mid-2013 ushered in significant changes. Since then, GE has, in our view, acquired assets cheaply (Alstom) and sold assets at good prices (Synchrony and its appliances division). GE is also significantly reducing its financial services business to focus on those lending activities that are core to its industrial products. The company has totally revamped its variable compensation plan for thousands of employees, emphasizing factors that drive return on invested capital, which should boost future results. Some investors may have a stale opinion of GE after the past 15 years of persistent underperformance, but we believe the remaining businesses will grow in excess of global GDP with high returns on capital. We believe the current valuation is attractive for this good collection of businesses.

Bill Nygren Comments on General Electric - Jan 09, 2015

General Electric (GE - $25.27)

General Electric is a company with businesses we have always admired, but we have questioned management’s focus on returns when making capital allocation decisions. However, the appointment of a new CFO in mid-2013 ushered in significant changes. Since then, GE has, in our view, acquired assets cheaply (Alstom) and sold assets at good prices (Synchrony and its appliances division). In 2015 the company plans to totally revamp its variable compensation plan for thousands of employees, emphasizing factors that drive return on invested capital, which should boost future results. We believe there is substantial opportunity to improve gross margins, and the stock trades for just under a market multiple on 2016 earnings. Some investors may have a stale opinion of GE after the past 15 years of persistent underperformance, but we believe it’s a good investment at the current price.
