Every year, industrial executives (as well as the rest of Wall Street) would travel down to a coastal resort off Sarasota, Florida to hear General Electric’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, present his outlook on the company. Last May, Immelt expressed a very positive outlook on the conglomerate’s future, stating “this is a strong, very strong company.” However, many investors didn’t think Immelt was very confident in his sentiments. His 27-slide presentation went through a 2018 profit...

Ray Dalio and Warren Buffett – two of Wall Street’s most...
