Nearly everything has gone wrong for General Electric the past few years -- particularly the decisions that can be traced back to longtime boss Jeff Immelt. But it turns out that he was, without meaning to be, a pretty savvy real-estate investor.

Back in 2016, GE announced that it was pulling up stakes in Fairfield, Conn., selling its headquarters complex for $31.5 million. The local tax bill was just too high.

It received tax breaks to build a tower and move its headquarters to Boston. Now that the shrinking company doesn't really need the space -- it has sold business units to repair its damaged balance sheet -- GE sold the parcel where the tower was to be built and made more than $11 million in profit.

Maybe Mr. Immelt was just in the wrong business.
