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 earlier decided to focus on three core businesses: Aviation, Healthcare and Power. However, it is now contemplating to spin-off its core operations to maximize shareholder returns after taking a hit of $6.2 billion in the fourth quarter from the legacy insurance business. This could result in fluctuations in share price as the market waits for clarity. Also, GE Power has been the biggest drag on margins due to lower demand of turbines. The company has underperformed the industry in the last three months on macroeconomic challenges. Also, the company has a choppy earnings beat history, having missed estimates twice in the trailing four quarters for as many beats. The company has halved its dividend to 12 cents per share — the first dividend cut since 2009 at the peak of the recession. However, General Electric is likely to turn the tables in the future with improved performances from emerging markets like India and China." (6/22/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We concede that C17-18 FCF is below normal", but caution that the C19+ FCF." (11/8/2017)
  • 3. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "as open and undefined as it's been in decades."Jeffrey Immelt's announcement in early June that he will be stepping down as CEO was "unexpectedly early" and Steve Bolze's decision to step down as head of GE Power signals the unit's "fundamentals are weaker than expected." In the meantime, GE is expected to post a "relatively weak" second quarter on rolling free cash flow that won't be enough to dispel related concerns and may result in operating cuts.So Now What?Moving forward, GE's new management team led by its CEO John Flannery will need to control the narrative on four different fronts and set a new agenda regarding:Earnings per share and free cash flow outlook.Potential restructuring.Capital allocation.Portfolio priorities.These four categories will measure GE's "true level of change" (7/6/2017)
