Anyone wondering why General Electric Co. this week became the first U.S. company to have a stock-market value topping $300 billion need only look at GE's second-quarter results released Thursday. GE once again posted double-digit gains in revenue and profit, gains smack in the middle of Wall Street's forecasts. This from a company that's already among the most profitable on Earth and that, yes, has exposure to the economic woes in Asia that are battering so many other U.S. companies. No matter.

GE's top managers would have to push their divisions to the top of the pack or see them sold off or shut down, he said.
