Finally gaining momentum. The popular company posted better-than-expected earnings, with little drama, final week. GE exceeded estimates and raised packed-year free cash flow guidance for industrial operations to a midpoint of about $4.3 billion, $800 million from the previous guidance.

The index rose by 17% in 2021.

Larry Kolb was hired in late 2018 to replace then-strapped General Electric. Free industrial cash flow generated from 2018 to 2020 was $1.7 billion, down from an approximate average of $12 billion in 2015 to 2016. During the pandemic, cash flow has fallen to about $600 million. “[Free cash flow] Installed for investors ever since [Culp] took over, and for obvious reasons….

He valued GE stock with a target price of $16.

Nicholas Heyman, another bull, William Blair, praised GE’s “steady sequential improvement across virtually all major companies and metrics”. He sees a 30% upside potential for the stock and rates it as a purchase, but has not posted a price target. However, a 30% acquire would put it in the $17 range.

Not everyone is confident. Wall Street’s average target is $14.68.


Christopher Glenn has evaluated the shares held, also without a target price. However, he sees positive changes in General Electric. Suddenly it became firm to find bears at General Electric. About 67% of analysts are buying its stock, versus the average S&P 500 buying share of 55%. Nobody says sell.
