GE: “We expect that GE earnings growth will continue in 2011 and 2012. We have simplified the portfolio and dramatically reduced risk. We have invested in organic growth with global partnerships, a 21% increase in R&D and a broad array of new products. We are executing a balanced and disciplined capital-allocation plan with dividend increases, acquisitions and share repurchases. Our framework for 2011 is quite achievable and we are optimistic about the future,” Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO. Source: GE, 21-Jan-2011.
