The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill, as well as analysts Ron Gross, James Early, and Joe Magyer.

In this segment, the guys analyze General Electric's latest quarter. While GE is known for making jet engines, wind turbines, etc., it's the finance division, GE Capital, that came through in a big way. That said, Ron says GE is very much an industrial company and investors should consider it as such.


For GE, the recent financial crisis struck a blow, but management took advantage of the market's dip to make strategic bets in energy. If you're a GE investor, you need to understand how these bets could drive this company to become the world's infrastructure leader. At the same time, you need to be aware of the threats to GE's portfolio. To help, we're offering comprehensive coverage for investors in a premium report on General Electric, in which our industrials analyst breaks down GE's multiple businesses. You'll find reasons to buy or sell GE, and you'll receive continuing updates as major events unfold during the year. To get started, click here now.
