General Electric News

General Electric finished 2020 with a loss of over 10%. Although GE had a remarkable comeback from the lows hit in March in the early days of the pandemic, the shares did not have a full recovery during the year.

Even before the uncertainty due to the pandemic hit our shores last year, GE’s management was finding it difficult to regain shareholder trust for the long term. 2020 is likely to be another challenging year for those at the helm of the industrial giant.

In the coming weeks, I expect GE stock to trade in a range between $8 and $10. Long-term investors with a two-to-three year horizon may consider buying General Electric shares if the price goes toward $9 or even below. Patience will be required to see your capital grow for the company with a long history of lackluster performance.

If you already own GE stock, you might want to stay the course. Alternatively, if you are an experienced investor in the options market, you may also consider using a covered call strategy with approximately a six-week time horizon, i.e., Feb 19-expiry. Such a covered call position would enable to you to participate in a potential up move and also offer some downside protection.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 74.8809. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 17 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 63.50. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 14 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 16 period(s) ago.

Short-term traders should pay closer attention to buy/sell arrows while intermediate/long-term traders should place greater emphasis on the Bullish or Bearish trend reflected in the lower ribbon.


GENERAL ELEC CO is currently 50.1% above its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely high when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods. There is a good possibility that volatility will decrease and prices will stabilize in the near term.

Our volume indicators reflect volume flowing into and out of GE.N at a relatively equal pace (neutral). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on GE.N and have had this outlook for the last 7 periods.
