Big companies with dominant product lines, such as IBM (IBM), Caterpillar (CAT), and Microsoft (MSFT), can survive and rise again when a “man with a plan” takes over from an indifferent or, in GE’s case, worse than indifferent, CEO. This article summarizes why the approximate 21% CAGR in GE’s (GE) stock price gain in Jack Welch’s 20 years at the helm (plus significant dividends) can serve as a guidepost for what can happen if and when John Flannery can emulate Welch, Lou Gerstner at IBM, Satya Nadella at MSFT, and CAT’s latest turnaround. Another example in a different sphere is Wells Fargo (WFC), beset by scandals and drastically underperforming its industry, “surprisingly” surging with its peers to new all-time highs.
In a stock market that has reached very high valuations as well as having an extended short term technical picture – though structurally strong long term – GE stands out both regarding sentiment and fundamentally as having the characteristics for risk-takers to buy the gloom. I’ll begin with two different sentiment pictures, then discuss the fundamentals. Because there are so many numbers, so many parts to the GE story (both moving and static parts), and so many different ways to think about things, and a large group of readers who know the story up close and personal (unlike yours truly), I will keep to the spirit of the following comment a lawyer friend once made to a client in a memo: “I would have made this shorter, but I didn’t have the time.”
