General Electric

In light of GE's efforts to sell off the vast majority of GE Capital, we note that across its Industrial segments Power (~31% of manufacturing sales in 2017, ~18% of adjusted profits) and Aviation (24% of sales, 43% of profits) rank as the largest based on revenues. Healthcare is the next largest generator of sales (16% of sales, 22% of profits) also with solid profits. The rest of GE's industrial portfolio is rounded out by Oil & Gas (15% of sales, 6% profits) Renewable Energy (9% of sales, 5% profits), and although Transportation is a smaller segment (~3% of sales, 5% profits), it still had a solid margin profile even with a challenging few years. Lighting (2% of sales, 1% of profits) has largely been classified as a held for sale asset. Total consolidated sales for GE are focused on the U.S. (38% of 2017 revenues), followed by Europe (19%), Asia (18%), Middle East and Africa (16%), and Americas (~9%) (20 Jun 2018)
