GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
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

Hotchkis & Wiley Comments on General Electric - May 10, 2018

General Electric (NYSE:GE) has leading positions in power turbines, jet engines, diesel locomotives, and diagnostic imaging systems with $120B in sales of which about 60% is international. In our opinion, the stock now trades at an attractive valuation considering it has a high quality set of businesses with interesting future prospects. Shares have underperformed due to shrinking capital and power earnings, combined with weak cash flow in power and declining cash from dispositions in capital, which led to a dividend cut. We believe the power business will be challenged but most of its earnings decline is priced in today. Also, what the market misses is GE’s businesses have #1 or #2 market share in virtually every business and has a dominant installed base to service and sell new equipment. In our opinion, GE trades at an attractive multiple of normal earnings with a majority of businesses that earn high long-term returns on capital.

Dodge & Cox Comments on Baker Hughes GE - Feb 13, 2018

We have held Baker Hughes in the Fund since 1998, actively adding to and trimming from the position given relative valuation opportunities and changing fundamentals over the years. In July 2017, GE (NYSE:GE) Oil & Gas completed its acquisition of Baker Hughes, forming Baker Hughes GE (BHGE), now the second largest oilfield services company in the world after Schlumberger (also held in the Fund, 1.6% at year end). By combining oilfield services (Baker Hughes) and oilfield equipment (GE Oil & Gas) businesses, BHGE is the only company that serves the upstream, midstream, and downstream segments of the Oil, Gas, and Consumable Fuels industry.



Adjusting for the $17.50 per share cash dividend the Fund received in July, the stock was weak in 2017. While oil service activity levels have started to rebound in North America due to the resurgence of U.S. shale oil, hopes for an international recovery have been delayed. During the second half of 2017, we added to BHGE given its lower valuation, earnings growth potential, diversified business model, and financial strength. Management is targeting a $1.6 billion improvement in EBITDA, driven by 75% cost savings and 25% revenue synergies. BHGE has a long-term opportunity to increase its market share with its improved scale. BHGE’s leadership position in compressors and turbines generates long-term service contracts with attractive recurring revenue, which should reduce downside volatility. In addition, the company has a healthy balance sheet and recently announced a $ 3 billion share buyback. We believe BHGE provides attractive risk-reward diversification to the Fund’s Energy portfolio. The company was a 1.0% position on December 31.

David Herro Comments on General Electric - Oct 09, 2017

Next on the new purchase list (and probably far better known), General Electric (NYSE:GE) makes its first-ever appearance in the Global Fund. In contrast to the U.S. stock market indices, GE’s share price has been weak this year, and we believe that this decline is far more than what is warranted. Appointed this summer, new CEO John Flaherty will present to the investing community in November, and many expect that he will announce a “reset” in which he establishes a new (and lower) base for the company’s earnings. Although we agree that this is likely, we believe that the current stock price already reflects this expectation. GE has many positive attributes. It is composed of a portfolio of high-returning, dominant businesses, many of which generate recurring maintenance revenue (e.g., service contracts for jet engines). We believe that the company’s aviation and health care businesses are especially desirable, and they constitute more than half of our estimate of intrinsic value for the company. We expect Flannery to cut costs aggressively, which should also improve earnings.

David Herro and Bill Nygren Comment on GE - Jul 11, 2017

GE (NYSE:GE), a global producer of industrial, household and medical goods, was the largest detractor for the quarter, declining 9%. Shares were weak due to the company’s exposure to energy end markets (which was increased via its merger with Baker Hughes, a contrarian acquisition we believe will prove to be well timed). The stock was also hurt by an analyst downgrade during the quarter, which cited concerns that GE’s cash flows were lagging behind the company’s reported profits. In our view, this concern will prove to be irrelevant to the long-term investment case, as two of GE’s longest cycle businesses (aviation and power) are in the midst of their largest new product launches ever, both of which require large investments in inventory and other working capital accounts that will reverse over time. In addition, GE has recently worked to reinvent its portfolio and possesses a renewed focus on achieving appropriate capital returns. As such, the company completely revamped its variable compensation plan for thousands of employees who are now paid on a number of factors that emphasize improving its return on invested capital. We believe such changes will lead to much better performance and that GE’s long-term outlook, therefore, remains promising.

Mario Gabelli Comments on General Electric Co. - Nov 02, 2016

General Electric Co. (NYSE:GE) (1.1%) (GE $29.62 – 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 next generation fuel efficient narrowbody aircraft, while investing in 3D printing capabilities to simplify the associated manufacturing. On the services side, 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 Comment on General Electric - Oct 10, 2016

General Electric (NYSE:GE), a global producer of industrial, aviation and medical goods, was the biggest detractor for the quarter. While GE has benefited from improved margins and capital allocation, shares were weak during the quarter due to concerns over the company’s 2016 guidance. After producing organic growth of 1% in the first half, the company forecasts full-year organic growth between 2-4%. GE expects its Power division will drive this growth, with planned turbine shipments nearly double what they were in the first half of the year. The market appears to believe these forecasts are aggressive and expects GE management to reduce guidance when it next reports earnings. The timing of turbine shipments is essentially irrelevant to the value of the company, and our long-term investment thesis remains entirely intact.
