What are analysts saying about General Electric Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Electric Company stock:

  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "There were mixed results in Outperform-rated GE's 4Q16 earnings, including a top-line miss from Power shipment delays and oilrelated weakness. Key positives included cash flow, H-turbine shipments, and completion of GE Capital asset sales. As expected, 2017 guidance was reaffirmed. We continue to like GE as an under-loved transformation/rerating story, but recognize that the stock has less must-own-now appeal in the ongoing risk-on environment." (1/23/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Electric recorded lower Industrial segment profit despite stringent cost-cutting and simplification initiatives owing to a highly volatile environment and sluggish growth across the globe. This forced the company to lower its organic revenue growth guidance for 2016. 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. However, General Electric has outperformed the industry in the last three months with a continued digital focus. Its multi-billion deal with Baker Hughes is also likely to boost the Oil & Gas segment revenues through signs of re-conglomeration. The company has a positive earnings history, having beaten estimates thrice in the trailing four quarters." (12/27/2016)
