Dow Smackdown: GE vs. Travelers

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discuss topics across the investing world.

As part of the Motley Fool Madness series, Brendan and Anand go head-to-head analyzing two Dow titans. In today's showdown, we look at two big-time companies on the Dow, General Electric and Travelers. Brendan makes the case for GE, which he thinks is trading for cheap right now and is an excellent value play. The company is focusing on its energy and infrastructure business and should see solid growth in the future. Anand goes in-depth on Travelers, which is hoping for a better year after getting hit hard by catastrophe claims last year.

GE gets a significant amount of its sales abroad, but there are a few other companies whose international growth stories we're particularly bullish on. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs. Uncover them in our special free report: "3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World."
