We hear that GE may sell its famed appliance unit for as much as $5 billion. Might it deploy that capital in faster-growing businesses--getting away from GE Profile refrigerators to selling more wind turbines?

Boone Pickens, who plans the world's largest windfarm in the Texas Panhandle. -- Leslie Haines, Editor in chief, Oil and Gas Investor
