GE set Q2 cash guidance bar 'excessively' low, says Gordon Haskett
Gordon Haskett analyst John Inch said he expects General Electric to significantly beat its Industrial free cash flow guidance of ($1B-$2B) when the company reports second quarter results next week, but that reflects the degree to which GE "set the cash expectations bar at an (excessively) low level," according to Inch. Looking ahead, tougher comparisons and a waning global economic outlook could make for a tougher road in terms of cash flow, said Inch, who keeps an Underperform rating and $7 price target on GE shares.

JPMorgan's Tusa says GE guidance drivers 'low quality,' would sell into strength
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa says General Electric reported an operation miss in Q2 driven by a material miss at its Aviation unit and it also reported free cash flow that missed his estimate. While the company raised its headline guidance, the drivers of the raise "seem low quality" as the company's segments "are trending at best in line," Tusa tells investors. He would sell any strength today in the shares following the report and keeps an Underweight rating on shares of General Electric. The stock is up about 4% in pre-market trading, but Tusa contends that "like in the past, the underlying core fundamentals are actually a bit worse."

Outperform
GE operational and financial turnaround building momentum, says William Blair
General Electric's Q2 report yesterday "included further tangible evidence" that its operational and financial turnaround is beginning to build momentum, William Blair analyst Nicholas Heymann tells investors in a research note. GE's year-to-date free cash flow use was $2.2B, down $0.8B from the first half of 2018, while its Industrial organic sales grew sequentially to 7% from 5%, Heymann points out. The analyst reaffirms an Outperform rating on the shares. GE's fundamental prospects and underlying value "continue to remain extremely divergent within the investment community," says Heymann. However, he sees "growing irrefutable evidence that the worst is not only past but also that GE's fundamental forward visibility is gradually beginning to improve as its financial stability returns." The analyst pegs GE's underlying intrinsic value, with no value assigned to Power, between $14 and $16 per share. This range now seems to be a "highly feasible base-case valuation" for the stock over the next 6-12 months, according to Heymann. Shares of General Electric closed yesterday up 2c to $10.45.

Underweight
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.
