GE files confidentially to spin off healthcare unit in IPO, Bloomberg says

General Electric (GE) is working with Goldman Sachs (GS), Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), JPMorgan (JPM) and Morgan Stanley (MS) and has filed confidentially for an initial public offering of its healthcare unit, according to Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter. "As we announced in June, as an independent global health-care business, we will have greater flexibility to pursue future growth opportunities, react quickly to changes in the industry and invest in innovation," GE said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg, though it declined to comment on plans for the healthcare unit. In pre-market trading following the report, GE shares are up 2.6% to $7.47. Reference Link

Deutsche, laying out 'realistic bear case,' cuts GE target to $7 from $11
Deutsche Bank analyst Nicole DeBlase thinks the key debates over General Electric can be boiled down to the trajectory of GE Industrial free cash flow and whether the company is headed for a liquidity crisis. In a new research report titled "Laying Out a Realistic Bear Case," the analyst walks through a new base and bear case free cash flow analyses. The bad news is that in the bear case, GE Industrial free cash flow remains in negative territory through 2021, DeBlase writes. The analyst built up a segment-by-segment bear case earnings model, which assumes continued declines at Power and modest downturns in Renewables, Aviation and O&G. The "good news," however, is that even in this "drastic scenario," the analyst does not foresee a liquidity crisis. Nevertheless, the analyst cut her price target for General Electric shares to $7 from $11 and keeps a Hold rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday up 20c to $7.94. DeBlase's price target relies on her base case, not her bear case. Her base case "embodies a more likely scenario," whereby an economic downturn does not happen through 2021.

GE stake in Baker Hughes remains an overhang, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Charles Minervino said Baker Hughes (BHGE) management expressed optimism about its end market diversification, global oilfield footprint and robust backlog in recent meetings and noted the company has not made any changes to its outlook assumptions disclosed on the Q3 call. While he thinks Baker Hughes has done "a very admirable job" of managing the new organization since the GE (GE) merger, Minervino keeps a Neutral rating on the stock given the lingering GE 50.4% ownership overhang. After lowering his 2019 EPS estimate to $1.29 from $1.39 to account for model changes and the recent move in crude prices, Minervino lowered his price target on Baker Hughes shares to $24 from $31.

General Electric upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa upgraded General Electric to Neutral from Underweight with an unchanged price target of $6. The stock closed yesterday down 5c to $6.71. The analyst says he's less negative on the shares with the abating of "known unknowns." Tusa, however, increasingly assumes a "material equity raise could be necessary." While such an event would create near-term downside in GE shares, there "could be support at a lower level, and likely a benefit of the doubt for new management with a higher multiple on lower earnings" and free cash flow, Tusa tells investors in a research note partially titled "Gonna Walk Before They Make Me Run." The analyst sees a more balanced risk/reward following the recent selloff in General Electric shares.
