GE: “The company advanced strategically in the quarter. We announced that our joint venture with China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC) has been selected to provide the avionics systems package for the newly launched C919 single-aisle aircraft…GE is well positioned across the portfolio, both financially and competitively. The company continues to generate strong cash flow, which we will invest strategically to create shareholder value, while keeping the company safe. We expect to grow earnings and dividends in 2011 and beyond,” Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO. Source: GE, 16-Jul-2010.
