    By Bob Ciura - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: DOV, EMR, ITW

    An old stock market adage that I tend to agree with is that when it comes to investing, boring is good. If you go through a list of the best-performing stocks of all time, you’ll find commonalities among many of the featured companies. More often than not, the companies that have richly rewarded shareholders for the longest have come from industries that are less than exciting.

    That’s why more »

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: EMR, GE, HON

    Editor's Note: The original article refers to Darius Adamczyk as the CEO and President of Honeywell. That is incorrect, this version has been corrected and Motley Fool apologizes for the error.

  • Don't Be Afraid, Go Direct

    By Reuben Brewer - June 18, 2013 | Tickers: EMR, XOM, SO

    The deep market sell offs after the tech and housing bubbles have left a generation of investors with a changed view of the stock market. While a little fear isn't a bad thing, it is important to keep investing.

    By Zain Abbas - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: DHR, EMR, HON

    The first day of the Electrical Product Group (EPG) conference brought with it different investment themes. Some of them were new while others were reinforced at this occasion.

  • Can 3M Sustain Its Profitability Momentum?

    By siraj sarwar - May 3, 2013 | Tickers: MMM, EMR, GE

    In the first quarter, it was clear that the U.S. industrial environment was in the process of improving. Executives at many companies got past the impact of the threat of the "fiscal cliff" and the sequester, or automatic federal budget cuts that were enacted earlier this year. Consumer spending, which has remained strong, accounts for 70% of the U.S. economy and it's what encourages growth in industrial more »
