General Electric dips, Microsoft up slightly, Mylan under pressure

Let’s check out the Yahoo Finance charts of the day.

General Electric (GE): Shares are down in early trade, at around .68%. GE was urged by France’s finance minister to stick to its commitment to create 1,000 jobs at energy producer Alstom. The company made the commitment in 2015 when it bought Alstom’s energy business, but GE subsequently said the target was out of reach.

Microsoft (MSFT): Shares up here,  at .20%. Reuters is reporting that Microsoft is working on technology that would eliminate cashiers and checkout lines from stores. The technology would represent a challenge to Amazon’s automated grocery stores.

Mylan (MYL): Shares down here, at around 3.7%. U.S. health regulators were unable to approve its generic version of GlaxoSmithKline’s blockbuster inhaled lung drug Advair for the second time, as they found “minor deficiencies” in the treatment.
