General Electric fundamentals 'continue to look negative,' says JPMorgan's Tusa
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa came away from General Electric's Q2 results with no change to his "well below consensus view." GE Power needs a positive core profit contribution on $1B in negative mix revenue headwind "to just get back to breakeven," Tusa tells investors in a research note. Further, Aviation needs 35% growth in its Military business to hit guidance, adds the analyst. Despite the Street's enthusiasm around a beat to low guidance, GE's fundamentals "continue to look negative," argues Tusa. He keeps an Underweight rating on shares of General Electric with a $5 price target. The stock closed Friday down 34c to $9.15.
