Siemens

Described as the GE of Europe, Siemens (SI) is a top supplier of machinery and technology for industries around the world.

On top of that, the German conglomerate is a leading provider of wind turbines and has a growing healthcare business.


After aggressively cutting costs last year, Siemens is poised to cash in on a wave of infrastructure investment in emerging and established markets, analysts say.

The company specializes in automation systems and technologies for manufacturers ranging from automakers to chemical companies. But its focus in recent years has been on green technologies, which made up about one-third of its revenues last year.

A note of caution: Despite its global reach, Siemens still generates more than half of its sales in Europe, and the weak recovery there could take a toll on growth.
