Struggling. Restructuring since the financial crisis. Trying to repair balance sheet. Aircraft still struggling, and too early to tell how long it will take to recover. Look at Raytheon instead. Defence is doing exceptionally well, plus aerospace and security exposure. Exceptionally well run.

Morgan Stanley's CEO expects positive cash flow in the second half of 2020. The stock rallied over 10% today after that statement, which he finds incredible. However, he doesn't know anyone who expects positive cash flow from GE. Expect Honeywell and 3M to go up along with this, at least tomorrow.

The balance sheet remains an issue. They spent $25 billion in 2015-17 in stock buybacks around $25-30/share. The power generation industry is struggling. Maybe some of the pieces of GE are worth more than the stock price. Where's the catalyst to push it up? Look elsewhere for growth.

He would be very cautious on GE. The company has been an investment grade company for decades. Today it is a speculative company. You are not buying the GE of old. It is 70% debt to total capital and as a pension deficit of $95 million. Cash flow is unpredictable. They are now starting to sell of their good quality assets. This will reduce future cash flow.

In the past, this was a blue chip stock, but now is hitting hard times. Forget the past. It remains highly speculative, with high debt as they sell quality businesses, deal with a pension liability and many other problems. Avoid.

He is not investing in GE as it has fallen from grace in the past few years. A text book example of a value trap and a company that has taken on too much debt. If revenues fall, they will see free cash flow evaporate.

Still on the sidelines. CEO is respected. Its engine business is being impacted with Boeing. Not sure what earnings and cash flow profile will be a year from now.

A tough one. They went from an investment-grade grade company to a speculative one. They've fallen into an abyss and are just now climbing out. They sold pieces of their portfolio for the sake of cash flow; they should have kept those piece.

A new CEO has helped to protect value. He owns this at $15.51 and should have sold this at $25 when Warren Buffet was selling. There are still problems and they are selling off segments. He thinks the CEO will improve things and could push the stock much higher.

The mistake people make is that they use past brands and labels. GE is not an investment grade company any longer. It is a speculative stock at this stage. There are thousands of companies that are better to look at.

They've stopped the bleeding and can now concentrate on their core businesses. You're now betting on the new CEO who has a good track record. GE will be volatile, but now is a good time to enter it or look at it. They may miss numbers for several quarters, so be prepared.

The bad news is their power segment were down 30% and other segments earnings were down as well. They did raise free cash flow to $1 billion. He likes the CEO and thinks earnings could grow by 15%. A speculative buy at this time.

Just because you own it, doesn't mean you have to keep it. The wonderful thing about the market is that you don't have to finish the race on the same horse. Big risk is that you're looking at it as an investment grade company, whereas it's speculative grade right now.

New CEO is well respected. Balance sheet issue. Wants better clarity a year from now as to what cash flow will be. She's watching it. Doesn't think it's going to zero.
