General Electric's 2018 closer to normal than many think, says JPMorgan

JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa sees downside risk to estimates for General Electric in the near term. In a fresh research note titled "'Normal' is a Relative Term: A Fresh Look at The GE Power Model," Tusa says his 2018 estimates for GE remain below consensus. Debate continues around the sum-of-the-parts and what could be done to unlock value, Tusa writes. He believes that after nine months in the role, management is likely to have a "better story to tell than the one they told in November the next time we hear from them." GE is already discussing actively with some investors the path forward for improvement off of what is perceived to be depressed operating levels, the analyst reveals. Tusa believes, however, that GE's 2018 is closer to "normal" than many think. The analyst sees support for his Underweight rating on the shares with an $11 price target. General Electric closed yesterday up 15c to $13.43.

JPMorgan's Tusa confident in $11 GE target amid Buffett speculation
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa points out that Warren Buffett's past involvement in General Electric has ended up being wrong from a "stock and valuation perspective." Following this week's speculation of a potential Buffett stake, Tusa expresses greater conviction in his Underweight rating on GE with an $11 price target. The analyst wonders why, if things aren't so bad, GE would the company's need Berkshire's capital or validation. Buffett or not, numbers matter, Tusa writes in a research note. The stock in early trading is down 6c to $13.62.

No news from GE could be considered good news, says Citi
Outside of a potential investment from Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), "no news" could be viewed as "good news" for General Electric (GE), Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. No significant new "issues" have emerged following the announcement of GE's insurance reserves funding plan, nor in the company's annual filing published in late February, Kaplowitz argues. He believes that the more time passes with no significant new issues emerging, the more investors can gain confidence that new management can fully focus on executing a turnaround. Further, he sees "at least three specific areas in which inflections over the coming year could serve as catalysts to changing the narrative:" improving cash generation, asset sale announcements, and potentially inflecting energy end markets. Kaplowitz keeps a Buy rating on shares of General Electric. The stock closed yesterday down 36c to $13.12.

JPMorgan's Tusa wonders how long GE's rating agencies can stay silent
Despite "material changes" in fundamentals, little progress on asset sales, a lack of "clean numbers," and an SEC investigation, ratings agencies covering General Electric "remain on the sidelines" with their commentary, seemingly giving the company "precious time to work their way out," JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that during the Great Recession, GE was AAA rated while needing a bail-out. "We scratch our heads as to the repeated inertia," Tusa writes. The analyst remains cautious on shares of General Electric saying its fundamentals are worse than expected. Tusa wonders how long the rating agencies "can support a currently unjustified rating." He keeps an Underweight rating on GE shares with an $11 price target. The closed yesterday down 36c to $13.12.

Stifel cuts GE target to $13, makes 'modest proposal' about pension capping
Stifel analyst Robert McCarthy lowered his FY18 EPS estimate for General Electric to 95c from 98c and reduced his FY19 EPS estimate to $1.05 from $1.10, citing continued challenges at Power, expectations for slower growth across long cycle businesses and material cost inflation challenges. Along with trimming his forecasts, he cut his price target on GE shares to $13 from $15. Additionally, McCarthy made a "modest proposal" that GE management, which he said has recently been "virtue signaling" a change in the accountability culture at the company, should consider capping the pension benefits of its Supplementary Pension Plan for long tenured, senior employees and executive management. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on GE.
