Nice analyisis.

A couple of comments:

1) Tyco is another competitor worth considering
2) Predicting GE's future is difficult until we know whether the Honeywell deal is going through and if it does how well the acquired company is integrated
3) I can't see a company this large in the business sectors its in having a "three point" expansion potential. GE may be able to grow its business but it is not as nimble as some smaller newer companies.

Overall I think GE is pretty solid but it might not be a true tier two rulemaker at this time and caution should always be exercised when evaluating companies in the middle of a major acquisition.

(disclosure: I currently own shares of GE)
