Investopedia: Emerson - More Realistic, But Not Necessarily Better

I've commented before that Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) is an “it's always something” company – there's always something going a little wrong with some part of the business and creating worries for long-term investors. To that end, while Emerson's reported sales growth was actually pretty good on a relative basis this quarter, the incoming orders look ugly, management sounds pessimistic about the second half, and there are still serious issues in network power. While I do believe Emerson would be worth more than today's share price if it could fix its persistent problems, I have incrementally less confidence that management can.
