What are analysts saying about General Electric Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Electric Company stock:
- 1. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "GE Power supplier WWD noted soft IGT upgrade orders (for WWD’s components)." (4/20/2017)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Electric’s multi-billion deal with Baker Hughes is likely to boost the Oil & Gas segment revenues. General Electric further aims to grow its 3D manufacturing business to $1 billion by 2020 through opportune acquisitions. The company has almost completed the GE Capital exit plan about one year ahead of the schedule to focus on core industrial operations with a digital edge. With a healthy ROI from the Alstom deal, the company has offered a bullish guidance for 2017 and expects a steady rise in operating profits. However, for a company as large as General Electric, the additional revenues needed for growth are quite large, posing a challenge in developing businesses on such a vast scale. Significant order backlog, high operating risks related to the Brexit referendum and foreign currency volatility remain other headwinds. The company has also underperformed the industry in the last three months on macroeconomic and currency woes." (3/20/2017)
- 3. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "Outperform-rated GE will host an analyst meeting on its Power (21% of revenues) and Renewable Energy (7%) segments on Mar-8 in NYC. Key topics will likely include an update on the 4Q16 order pushouts, progress on the H-turbine launch and cost curve, and the Alstom integration. GE may also provide more specifics on the pending revenue recognition changes. Overall, we're not expecting any stockmoving news." (3/6/2017)
