Boston, Massachusetts-based industrial giant General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is scheduled to report its first-quarter 2017 earnings on Friday, 21st April before the market opens. GE has had a rough 2016 with revenues and margins coming under pressure. While GE certainly did not earn any prizes for execution overall, headwinds in the oil & gas segment were mainly to blame for its poor performance. Shares of GE have lost 4% in last one year and are down almost 6% YTD, widely underperforming the S&P 500 (INDEX:SPAL) which has returned more than 10% in the last one year. GE stock has erased most of the post-election gains. GE stock had rallied more than 10% after the elections through mid-December on the hopes that President Trump’s infrastructure plans and loose environmental policies will greatly benefit General Electric Company. The exuberance has cooled down since then.
