Dividend Stock: GE

Easy Extra Money Idea of the Day:


A stock I’ve recently added to my dividend portfolio is GE. I’ve had it on my watchlist for a while and decided to take the plunge even though the stock price hasn’t moved very much in recent years.

GE has been around forever and is the example of a conglomerate, they have businesses worldwide in the energy, power, aviation, transportation, and other fields. Because of this, the stock price can get stuck in the mud at times because GE rarely fires on all cylinders. GE has been in the news recently for its dealings with Baker Hughes Incorporated and its oil/gas business however I am in GE as a long term speculation. I like their focus on “internet of things” and renewable energy and believe these fields will produce good results for GE down the road as a leader.

  • GE operates as an infrastructure conglomerate
  • Founded in 1892 and based in Fairfield, Connecticut
  • Dividend Payout Schedule: 1-4-7-10
  • To create monthly dividend income, pair with an investment from Dividend Payout: 2-5-8-11 and Dividend Payout: 3-6-9-12

  1. I have owned this since the financial crisis in 2008-2009. A good stock that is fairly steady. I think they have narrowed their focus and it has paid off to some degree. A decent dividend but I would like to see the growth of said dividend increase a bit. Overall, in my opinion, this is a safe investment that provides some nice income. Good luck!

      Thanks for the comment Brian. I know the dividend was cut during the financial crisis but they spun off their financial arm which should help moving forward. I also hope for dividend increases and look forward to stock price growth via IoT.

  2. I like GE and started a very small position. I’ve been hoping for a little cheaper prices to add to my position. I plan on it being a smaller holding in my overall portfolio but like the stability of it and their vast business model.

      Yes GE has been going up with the rest of the market and I would wait for a pullback as well to add to or initiate a position.
