Demand for #GE has resumed after the US government announced a tender for the replacement of Boeing (BA) B-52 engines. The tender involves the re-equipment of the entire aircraft fleet during 2021-2035. The contract sum may count to $5-7 billion.

2. Support for institutional funds. Large investment funds and banks (Citigroup, Argus, JP Morgan) estimate the value of the General Electric Company shares at 8-9 USD.

Analysis of financial indicators and company multiples indicates the possibility of further growth of the issuer.

The company's shares have become stable after a prolonged fall. The current technical pattern signals a possible correction of #GE quotes. A classic reversal formation, the divergence of price and MACD histogram, has been formed in the issuer. At the moment, the trading instrument is testing the local resistance of 6.50. Indicators signal the power of buyers:

  • - The price has crossed 50 MA;
  • - The MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from key levels.

If the price fixes above 6.50, the company’s shares are expected to recover. The nearest goal for profit-taking is 7.40-8.20. The movement is tending to the 50.0%-61.8% correctional zone. When following positions, we recommend using a trailing stop.

An alternative could be a decrease in #GE quotes to the zone of 5.00-4.00.
