Despite the fact that the financial performance in the previous quarter was not as good as a year ago, #GE does not cease to be attractive to potential investors. One of the company’s strengths is the high degree of diversification among business segments, which allows the company to be relatively stable during crises. Another advantage is the constant demand from the United States.
Thus, General Electric is a mature company with high diversification among business segments. Moreover, the company’s management is increasingly focusing on renewable energy, which can improve the company’s financial performance in the future. Right now, however, the #GE share price looks high enough to buy.
