It is no secret that shares of General Electric C.. (NYSE: GE) have been in trouble and that there may be no easy fix for the conglomerate. Most investors have handily changed their views, and it remains well within the consensus pool of analysts and investors alike that GE’s opportunity remains a very long-term story rather than a short-term turnaround.
Argus is one of the few research firms with a Buy rating on GE shares. The firm also has a $20 price target, and that implies that GE shares have about 42% upside from the $13.99 post-earnings close on Friday. What makes the analyst call from Argus different is that this is an independent research call with no ties to investment banking and fees that traditional sell-side research may have.
Argus admits going in that the team has been disappointed with the steady flow of bad news and from managements decision to cut the dividend late last year. The team also believes that management’s tactical steps being taken to reignite growth are unlikely to have an impact on earnings for at least several quarters. Argus also has been disappointed that GE shares were down 18% so far in 2018 while the Dow Jones industrial average has seen a 1% drop.
