It is not looking very pretty for GE. They are expected to have a low Earnings report and we will see another Sell Off for this Asset. Right now, it has been reported that their balance sheet is filled with bad acquisitions and a lot of debt. Earnings for GE come out Pre-Market on the 20th. I can see this asset going to $11.00 when earnings are released. Trades for this event need to be in ASAP!
