Breakdown the Earnings of Giant Corporations

Let's say you want to know how much a giant conglomeration like GE earns from each type of its businesses (they do everything from television to home supplies to nuclear reactors).

They don't always get broken out in traditional financials. SO:
Go to MINT, type in your company, and select SEGMENTS as a value.

You'll get earnings (in the case of GE) by infrastructure, home solutions, entertainment, etc....

Couldn't find anything on Walmart or P&G.

Wal-Mart is confusing - I had to search a bit before using the ticker symbol WM as a search term in order to get the right entry. The entry had segments, but it only separated out Sams Club.

Same deal with Proctor. Put in PG (stock symbol). Then you get pretty decently detailed segments of their stuff.
