Trian not involved in General Electric CEO changeover, WSJ says

Activist investor Trian Fund Management wasn't involved in GE's CEO succession process and wasn't briefed on the appointment of John Flannery to head the company, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing sources. The Journal's sources said GE's succession planning narrowed to four internal prospects in 2015: Flannery, CFO Jeffrey Bornstein, power head Steve Bolze, and oil and gas chief Lorenzo Simonelli. The four were interviewed throughout 2016, and the timing and process of the change was established by year end, with a final decision on Flannery reached Friday, sources told the publication.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst John Inch saying the stock is overvalued given "weak earnings quality" and the "wide gap between non-cash and cash earnings." 2. Electronic Arts (EA) was downgraded to Neutral from Long-Term Buy at Hilliard Lyons and to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 3. Uni-Pixel (UNXL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Roth Capital with analyst Brian Alger saying while he sees abundant industry demand and interest for the company's products, he sees Uni-Pixel's future as somewhat binary and dependent upon strategic partnerships being executed relatively quickly. Alger also lowered his price target on the shares to 45c from $2. 4. Akari Therapeutics (AKTX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Tim Lugo citing the company's announcement that it placed its Chief Executive Officer on administrative leave as it reviews any involvement with the Edison Report. 5. Mazor Robotics (MZOR) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities with analyst David Turkaly citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

GE officially walked away from 2018 EPS target, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch says General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt at a conference yesterday officially walked away from the company's $2.00-plus earnings per share framework for 2018 citing tougher markets. While investors had expected GE to abandon the $2.00-plus target, the company kept $2.00 per share at the high end of its 2018 framework, Inch tells investors in a research note. He believes $2.00 to be unrealistic, even as just a high point in the range. The analyst sees cash flow pressures continuing in 2018 and keeps a Sell rating on GE with a $24 price target.

General Electric setting stage for dividend cut, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch believes the stage is being set for General Electric to cut its common dividend. The analyst has a Sell rating on the shares with a $24 price target. Last Wednesday at a conference, GE provided a cash flow walk for the next two years that suggests it is likely to generate insufficient free cash flow to cover its common dividend this year, and barely enough next year, Inch tells investors in a research note. He believes a "reasonable dividend payout" on a future earnings reset could result in a GE dividend cut to 65c-75c. A dividend reduction could be part of an earnings "reset" lower and possibly in conjunction with eventual future leadership change, Inch writes.

Outperform
General Electric has reached attractive entry point, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Julian Mitchell thinks the pendulum of investor sentiment regarding General Electric has swung too far in the negative direction, creating an attractive entry point into the stock. GE's organic growth seems underappreciated, argues Mitchell, who notes that its organic sales growth has topped most Electrical Equipment and Multi-Industry peers in recent years and into 2017. Meanwhile, GE's segments have shown "fairly healthy" operating leverage, added Mitchell, who has an Outperform rating and $34 price target on GE shares.
