What are Wall Street analysts saying about General Electric stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Electric stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Electric had decided to restructure its business portfolio to evolve into a high-tech industrial company — focused on Aviation, Power and Renewable Energy. As a result, the company will gradually separate GE Healthcare into a stand-alone company and exit oil and gas businesses by disposing its 62.5% stake in Baker Hughes. As planned earlier, GE Transportation will be divested to Wabtec Corporation and efforts are on track to shrink exposure in GE Capital business. When accomplished, these actions will help in improving shareholders value. As for now, the company beat earnings and sales estimates in second quarter 2018. However, earnings fell 10% year over year on weakness in margins. For 2018, momentum will be strong for Aviation and Healthcare segments, while Power will continue to remain a drag. In the past month, the company's share price gained strength, but remained below the growth in the industry." (7/24/2018) 2.
