Having been a big fan of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) CEO Jack Welch - whom I personally interviewed back during my newspaper days - I was noncommittal about Jeffrey Immelt after he succeeded the iconic Welch back in 2001.
But I've become a huge Immelt fan, too.
Unlike most CEOs, Immelt has a true "vision" for GE: He's refocused the company to match his vision - and, in doing so, has set General Electric up for long-term growth.
That's already put money in your pocket - money earned through innovation, shrewd risk-taking and a commitment to sector leadership.
Immelt's formula has been a winner so far - and will continue to be so.
His latest moves - made this week - are keeping GE "on message."
And that's setting the company up for a growth burst that's going to leave other big-cap stocks in the dust.
