    Shares of General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) continue to slump. The stock was off another 1%, a day after falling another eight percentage points. The downturn came after its CEO announced its industrial division will be cash-flow negative in 2019. Shares of PepsiCo Inc.

Top 5 Tech Stocks For 2019

All new motorcycles built for road use in the U.S. would have anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control as standard equipment under new recommendations from a federal safety agency.

Tuesday, the National Transportation Safety Board voted 5-0 to make the recommendations to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has the authority to impose regulations.

While the NHTSA didn’t immediately respond, in a statement the agency said it takes a “data-driven, fact-based approach” to vehicle safety and would take action as warranted.

During a public hearing Tuesday, the NTSB said that while anti-lock brakes have been required on U.S. passenger cars since 2000, and electronic stability control has been required since the 2012 model year, the technology has lagged for motorcycles.
