A turnaround story that's broken $10 faster than he expected. GE has a huge tailwind from Boeing, whose 737 Max has now been approved; GE's aerospace business will boom because it makes the 737's engines. This boom will give the CEO breathing space to build up GE's healthcare and power divisions. His renewable business should benefit under Biden. In 5 months, vaccines should allow many people to fly again, which will be a huge windfall for its aerospace business.

GE has solid wind and healthcare businesses, but these alone are not enough to buy this yet. Give it another another quarter before looking at this. GE reports next week.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly GE has floundered for the past several years, but new initiatives are beginning to change analyst outlooks. The company recently announced its plan to abandon new-build coal-fired plants in favour of renewables and natural gas projects, including wind powered offshore windfarms. Goldman Sachs recently resumed coverage, looking to a $10 target – more than 35% upside. We would trade this with a $6.00 stop-loss. Yield 0.55%. (Analysts’ price target is $9.17)

It's a mishmash restructuring play. They made a blunder buying back so many shares in recent years. Don't throw more more into this if you own it. Doesn't like how it's been run. Instead, he likes industrials and would buy Honeywell.

Ford vs. GE - Two old industrial giants that are struggling. Great companies, now losers racing down to $10/share. But each are showing promise and hope. He likes both stocks now in the single digits, though they are vastly different. Both Ford and GE will return to double-digits, though he gives the edge to Ford. It's plummeted from $30 to $7, fed by a series of terrible acquisitions over the years. Also, GE wrote idiotic long-term care insurance contracts that dramatically underpriced them and blew a giant hole in the balance sheet. Blame the ex-CEO. New CEO Culp has made some aggressive moves by selling assets and shoring up the balance sheet and trimming GE to aerospace, healthcare and power. However, Covid slowed down their air business and hit the stock. Only recently is the stock recovering as plane traffic gradually rises. GE is a recovery play, if you believe we'll get a vaccine sooner than later. GE is up nearly 15% this month.

They're not ready yet. They have a good turnaround plan despite being linked to aerospace. Should be in better shape in 12 months.

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.
