Introduction – GE’s upside

Big companies with dominant product lines, such as IBM (IBM), Caterpillar (CAT), and Microsoft (MSFT), can survive and rise again when a “man with a plan” takes over from an indifferent or, in GE’s case, worse than indifferent, CEO. This article summarizes why the approximate 21% CAGR in GE’s (GE) stock price gain in Jack Welch’s 20 years at the helm (plus significant dividends) can serve as a guidepost for what can happen if and when John Flannery can emulate Welch, Lou Gerstner at IBM, Satya Nadella at MSFT, and CAT’s latest turnaround. Another example in a different sphere is Wells Fargo (WFC), beset by scandals and drastically underperforming its industry, “surprisingly” surging with its peers to new all-time highs.

In a stock market that has reached very high valuations as well as having an extended short term technical picture – though structurally strong long term – GE stands out both regarding sentiment and fundamentally as having the characteristics for risk-takers to buy the gloom. I’ll begin with two different sentiment pictures, then discuss the fundamentals. Because there are so many numbers, so many parts to the GE story (both moving and static parts), and so many different ways to think about things, and a large group of readers who know the story up close and personal (unlike yours truly), I will keep to the spirit of the following comment a lawyer friend once made to a client in a memo: “I would have made this shorter, but I didn’t have the time.”

Best Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In 2019

What happened 

Solar stocks took a beating Monday after China cut its national incentives to install solar projects. Shares of solar panel manufacturers Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ) fell as much as 14.5%, JinkoSolar Holding Co. (NYSE:JKS) dropped as much as 17%, and Daqo New Energy Corp (NYSE:DQ) fell as much as 31.3% while inverter manufacturer Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH) fell up to 13.5%. By early afternoon, most major stocks in the solar industry were down double digits.

So what

There were two pieces of China’s solar ruling, one having to do with distributed generation (DG) and the other with utility-scale solar.

Image source: Getty Images.

On the DG side, China put a cap of 10 gigawatts (GW) for new solar projects in 2018, down from 19 GW installed in 2017. According to Asia Europe Clean Energy Advisory Co (AECEA), there may already be more than 10 GW of DG projects installed in China, so that could make it tough to build any projects in the second half of the year.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market.

The stock market climbed sharply on Thursday, responding well to favorable earnings results from several corners of the market. Major benchmarks were up 1% to 2%, with particularly good performance from the Nasdaq Composite thanks to the tech sector’s outperformance during the day. Yet some stocks suffered from bad news that cast doubt on companies’ ability to benefit from generally favorable business conditions. MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), Arch Coal (NYSE:ARCH), and LendingTree (NASDAQ:TREE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

MGM falls despite Cotai opening

Shares of MGM Resorts International lost almost 9% after the company reported its first-quarter financial results. The casino giant said that net revenue was down 1% compared to year-earlier levels, with revenue per available room falling 4.3% at its key Las Vegas Strip properties. Casino revenue was up just 2%, and CEO Jim Murren pointed to the likelihood of continued weakness at Mandalay Bay in the wake of the tragic events that happened there last autumn. Disruptions at Monte Carlo and the cancellation of a major boxing event will also weigh on future results. Even with solid performance from its stake in MGM China, investors aren’t certain that the casino resort operator’s business strategy will yield the results they want to see in the long term.

    The phrase “over the top television” or “OTT” for short, aren’t exactly new terms. The phrase/abbreviation was coined shortly after Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) became a viable alternative to traditional cable television subscriptions a little less than a decade ago. The over-the-top battle didn’t get heated, though, until the past few months. But, now that some more gladiators are in the arena, sparks are starting to fly.

    They’re still flying too, and should do so for a while if a small startup called Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV) has anything to do with it it. See, while Netflix, Hulu — jointly owned by Time Warner, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) — and a whole slew of other new players in this market may want to take notice of this up-and-comer. At the same time, investors may want to take a step back and look at where the real money in the OTT business is going to be made over the course of the next several years. OTTV plays a prominent role in that picture.

    Contrary to popular belief, Netflix isn’t the dominant name it used to be in the Internet-delivered television industry. Yes, it was the first on the scene as such was was able to carve out the biggest piece of the market. It’s largely become a commoditized business in the meantime though.

    For example, outside of Hulu and Netflix, CBS Corporation (NYSE:CBS) has jumped into the fray with a service called CBS All Access. The product allows subscribers -for a nominal monthly fee – access a variety of CBS programming via the Internet. HBO, from Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), has found some measurable success with its subscription-based Internet television service called HBO Go.

    Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH), is another one of the alternatives to the alternative that’s truly made a dent in the over the top market…. by aggregating a variety of television channels into an entire package and then selling that p
