    Shares of industrial giant General Electric (NYSE: GE) tumbled 5% in early trading Friday, and remain down 3.6% as of 10:40 a.m. EDT. What precisely is causing GE stock to fall, however, is a matter of opinion. When considering why a stock as gigantic as GE ($57 billion in market capitalization, $93.5 billion in annual sales) is going down, you have to expect that there will be a lot of factors at work.

Fidelis, a labor organizer who tested positive for the virus 10 days later, is far from alone. An isolated area in Brazil's Para state centered around three Vale-owned iron ore mines - S11D, Serra Norte and Serra Leste - is home to a coronavirus outbreak that has claimed 64 lives in the nearby town of Parauapebas alone, municipal data show.

    Price Over Earnings Overview: General Electric

    Right now, General Electric Inc. (NYSE:GE) share price is at $6.58, after a 2.95% drop. Over the past month, the stock went up by 1.15%, but over the past year, it actually decreased by 30.95%. With questionable short-term performance like this, and great long-term performance, long-term shareholders might want to start looking into the company's price-to-earnings ratio.The stock is currently above from its 52 week low by 20.07%. Assuming that all other factors are held constant, this could present itself as an opportunity for investors trying to diversify their portfolio with specialty industrial machinery stocks, and capitalize on the lower share price observed over the year.The P/E ratio measures the current share price to the company's EPS. It is used by long-term investors to analyze the company's current performance against its past earnings, historical data and aggregate market data for the industry or the indices, such as S&P 500. A higher P/E indicates that investors expect the company to perform better in the future, and the stock is probably overvalued, but not necessarily. It also shows that investors are willing to pay a higher share price currently, because they expect the company to perform better in the upcoming quarters. This leads investors to also remain optimistic about rising dividends in the future.Depending on the particular phase of a business cycle, some industries will perform better than others.General Electric has a lower P/E than the aggregate P/E of 24.11 of the specialty industrial machinery industry. Ideally, one might believe that they might perform worse than its peers, but it's also probable that the stock is undervalued.P/E ratio is not always a great indicator of the company's performance. Depending on the earnings makeup of a company, investors may not be able to attain key insights from trailing earnings.See more from Benzinga * Stocks That Hit 52-Week Lows On Wednesday * 12 Industrials Stocks Moving In Wednesday's Pre-Market Session * 14 Industrials Stocks Moving In Monday's Pre-Market Session(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

    2020 May Be Another Lost Year For General Electric, But BofA Is Still Bullish

    It's been another difficult year for General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) investors, with the stock down another 40.7% year to date to under $7.One Wall Street analyst said GE's 2020 sell-off is a buying opportunity for long-term investors, but they should keep their near-term free cash flow expectations in check.The GE AnalystBank of America analyst Andrew Obin reiterated his Buy rating and $11 price target for GE stock.The GE ThesisGE and its investors started off the year with relatively high hopes for FCF. At an investor conference this week, GE CEO Larry Culp suggested the economic downturn will likely make 2020 another negative FCF year for GE.GE is now projecting negative industrial FCF of between $3.5 billion and $4.5 billion in the second quarter alone.Looking ahead, Obin said he anticipates a slow pace of recovery for GE's aviation business. However, he projects a stronger rebound in GE's health care business given orders for products diagnosing and treating COVID-19 more than doubled in the second quarter. Meanwhile, supply chain issues impacting GE's power and renewables segment are improving, and the company is on track to ship at least 45 heavy-duty gas turbines in 2020.While the downturn has been a bump in the road for GE, Obin said he believes GE should be able to weather the storm."We see GE having the financial flexibility to weather near-term revenue declines and continue its turn-around progress," he wrote in a Friday note.Benzinga's TakeIt seems GE's financial situation is far better than it has been in recent years, and the company's balance sheet is stable and flexible enough to endure yet another difficult year. However, GE investors are likely growing tired of hearing about how a turnaround is just around the corner after years of underperformance and lackluster FCF and earnings numbers.Do you agree with this take?

    How This Week Highlights the Challenges Facing General Electric Stock

    I've been a skeptic toward General Electric (NYSE:GE) stock for some time now. Truthfully, I'm not too happy about it.Source: Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com After all, General Electric once was one of America's greatest and most innovative companies. It provided thousands of employees with stable jobs and generous retirement plans. GE stock was a core holding of pension funds and individual investors.Sadly, that's no longer the case. General Electric offers many fewer jobs: its workforce shrunk 28% worldwide in 2019. And GE stock, almost incredibly, touched a 29-year low this month. Its dividend has been cut -- twice.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe reality is sad. But it's still the reality. Investors need to react accordingly. * 7 Red-Hot Vaccine Stocks Racing to Develop a Coronavirus Cure While I still hold out hope for General Electric, I can't yet recommend that investors put their own hard-earned money behind the company's turnaround plans. Two pieces of news this week show why. GE Exits the Lighting BusinessOn Wednesday, General Electric announced that it had sold off its Lighting business. It is the end of era. After all, General Electric traces its history back to Thomas Edison and the light bulb he invented. That link has now been severed.Perhaps more importantly, as Bloomberg noted, GE is no longer a consumer company at all. Many of us remember the company's iconic "we bring good things to life" ad campaigns of the late 20th century. But GE Appliances now is owned by Germany's Haier (OTCMKTS:HRELF). The lighting business was sold to privately held Savant Systems.There's more than symbolism to the deal, however. According to the Wall Street Journal, GE Lighting sold for just $250 million. Over half of that was assumed liabilities. And it came after GE spent years trying to exit the business, during which time it sold off its Current LED business and some overseas operations as well.What the deal, and the process leading up to it, provides is another example that GE simply isn't what it used to be. Older investors, in particular, may have a sense of General Electric that simply isn't accurate anymore.As I've written before, General Electric's response to everything for years now has been to shrink. That process continues.GE stock did rally 8% on the news, but that gain seems driven more by bottom-fishing on a green day for the market than the transaction itself. $250 million simply isn't that material against a market capitalization still in the range of $60 billion. It's obviously not enough to offset the concerns that are keeping GE stock well into the single digits. Culp Speaks and GE Stock FallsTo be fair to GE, the decision to continually shrink the business isn't necessarily the wrong move. Chief executive officer Larry Culp is widely respected after his enormously successful tenure at Danaher (NYSE:DHR), and with good reason.But that's precisely the point. If GE could grow, Culp would be trying to drive growth. But with the company beset by a still-troublesome balance sheet and significant pension obligations, the focus has to be on getting the company back on solid footing first.The coronavirus has upended those plans. It has hammered GE's Aviation business, which counts Boeing (NYSE:BA) as a key customer.That in turn is testing investor patience. Culp said at a conference Thursday that GE would burn $4.5 billion in cash in the second quarter alone. GE stock fell 7% in response.The issue isn't just Aviation, but GE Capital. That unit finances aircraft, and as Culp put it "is seeing a good bit of pressure" from customer deferrals.The weakness from aircraft isn't ending in the second quarter. It's likely not ending in 2020, or even 2021. An investor need only look at the share prices of American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) or Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) to see what the market is pricing into those stocks.There's simply not that much slack in GE's free cash flow profile right now to manage that kind of multi-year pressure. Even before the coronavirus hit, GE was guiding for industrial free cash flow (i.e., excluding GE Capital) of just $2 billion to $4 billion. If Aviation is down for the count, free cash flow stays flattish at best. And that leaves GE with little in the way of options. A Tough SpotThe problem for GE stock at this point is that the company has to fix its balance sheet through free cash flow. It's pulled all of the other levers.Again, it's sold businesses, including the $21 billion sale of GE Biopharma to Danaher that closed earlier this year. There's really nothing left. GE Power is in the midst of a turnaround, Aviation is in trouble, Renewable Energy is small (and providing some growth), and Healthcare is the profit center.Simply put, GE has to start making money. It's not doing so. And, again, I don't think that's necessarily the fault of Culp. It's largely the result of past decisions, among them the disastrous acquisition of Alstom that closed in 2015.Whatever the cause, GE simply isn't a leader anymore. It's not a giant. It's not an innovator. GE is not what it was. What the news from this week reinforces is that General Electric simply is a cash-burning company trying to turn itself around. And even in a best-case scenario, it likely has years left of work to do.Matthew McCall left Wall Street to actually help investors -- by getting them into the world's biggest, most revolutionary trends BEFORE anyone else.

    The 9 Best Cheap Stocks to Fill Up On Now

    * AT&T (NYSE:T) * Altria Group (NYSE:MO) * RCI Hospitality (NASDAQ:RICK) * Molson Coors Beverage (NYSE:TAP) * Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) * Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY) * Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG) * ViacomCBS (NASDAQ:VIAC) * Champignon Brands (OTCMKTS:SHRMF)Although it's natural to mourn the cessation of the bull market, from another perspective, the novel coronavirus has gifted patient investors with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Previously, so many companies had fundamentally strong business, but were gutted once the pandemic struck. Now, these stalwarts can be reasonably considered cheap stocks to buy.Better yet, no matter what your thoughts are on the market's trajectory, investors should be looking to advantage these lows. For instance, if you still believe in a quick, V-shaped economic recovery, then acquiring cheap stocks now would see you earn a swift profit.However, if we take the opposite road and slog it out through years of frustration, this would still be a net positive -- unless you must cash out now for whatever reason. That's because a slow recovery allows you to build a robust portfolio of high-quality names. By the end of these trials, you'll thank yourself for thinking ahead.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAt the same time, not all cheap stocks to buy are viable bets for the long haul. As the bankruptcies of once-iconic American companies have demonstrated, we are still in the midst of an unprecedented calamity. Therefore, even solid names will likely suffer volatility, especially if we have an extended recovery.For this list of discounted companies, I'm primarily looking at businesses that can ride out the present calamity; hence, my focus on the vice industry. As well, I'm considering investments that may not find favor now but should have long-term upside. * 7 Red-Hot Vaccine Stocks Racing to Develop a Coronavirus Cure As with any pick you're considering, you should already acknowledge that turbulence is a given. Implement common-sense risk mitigation and you'll likely do well with these cheap stocks. AT&T (T)Source: Roman Tiraspolsky / Shutterstock.com AT&T is not only regarded among many analysts as one of the best cheap stocks to buy during this crisis, it's also incredibly boring. But remember, in the new normal, boring typically means stable, and stability is a very good thing. Here, this translates to T stock sporting a nearly 7% dividend yield.Additionally, AT&T features a forward price-earnings ratio of 9.5. That's incredibly low compared to both the telecommunications industry and broader benchmarks. Still, there's a reason for the discount. Over the years, the company has become very bloated, with some high-dollar decisions not working out favorably.Still, it's possible that the market is focusing too much on the negatives of T stock and not enough on the positives. For instance, the 5G network rollout will provide years of support for AT&T. In addition, the company owns HBO, which gives AT&T's streaming service much more gravitas than the competition. Altria Group (MO)Source: Kristi Blokhin / Shutterstock.com Admittedly, in the pre-pandemic years, Altria Group was disappointing. As you know, smoking rates are on the decline. Even worse, a new competitor, vaporizers or e-cigarettes, began providing a cleaner alternative to combustible cigarettes.However, MO stock became interesting when Altria invested heavily in Juul. However, underage vaping controversies saw Juul hit with lawsuits and ugly public accusations. Invariably, Altria's stake in Juul turned into a debacle.So, with all that, does Altria really belong in this list of cheap stocks to buy? While the headlines look terrible for the tobacco giant, the coronavirus may provide a surprising catalyst. According to research in Canada, recessions have a positive impact on smoking and imbibing rates. * 7 Cheap Stocks to Buy With Great Potential If this translates stateside -- and there's no reason to believe it wouldn't -- smoking rates could rise. Also, growing tensions between the U.S. and China may restrict vaporizer sales, which would cynically benefit Altria. RCI Hospitality (RICK)Source: Shutterstock Due to its universally attractive -- though admittedly shady -- business, RCI Hospitality is usually a solid bet, irrespective of broader market conditions. While RICK stock has seen a significant rise in value since hitting a bottom in March, shares are still sharply discounted relative to their pre-pandemic highs.But can RCI make good as a recession-resistant investment under these trying times? I will concede that this is a riskier proposition compared to other cheap stocks. Certainly, new normal protocols such as social distancing don't help when you're in the gentlemen's business. Still, this industry did very well, relatively speaking, during the Great Recession. I wouldn't be surprised if RICK stock provides an encore performance.At the end of the day, RCI meets a human need for close companionship that no technology can replicate. Granted, it's a cheap, twisted take on said companionship, but the demand is there. Molson Coors Beverage (TAP)Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com Another vice-related company, Molson Coors Beverage is more palatable for investors than RCI. I mean that figuratively and literally. As a provider of multiple beer brands, including low-cost, budget-friendly beers like Coors Light and Keystone Light, Molson Coors has distinct relevance during our troubles.For many of us, drinking booze is a way to help get the edge off. Obviously, with the quarantines and social isolation, along with mass uncertainty over the viability of our economy, many reasons exist to knock down a cold one. But so far, it's TAP stock that's the one getting knocked down.Currently, shares are trading at levels last seen in the early years of last decade. What gives? * 25 Stocks to Buy for the Reopening Rally Unfortunately, shuttered restaurants have had a huge impact on Molson Coors and several other beverage makers. But with most states reopening -- and some blatantly ignoring common sense -- it's possible that cheap beer will start flowing again. Therefore, you'll want to keep Molson on your list of cheap stocks to consider. Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD)Source: legacy1995 / Shutterstock.com Similar to Molson Coors, Anheuser-Busch specializes in cheap beer. For many years, Anheuser's flagship brand, Bud Light, has been the most popular beer in America, followed by Coors Light. Personally, I like the taste of Coors Light as far as cheap light beer goes. But Bud Light? It's simply awful.However, the customer is always right. And for the long term, you don't want to fight the tape on BUD stock. Right now, though, shares are at a remarkable discount. With BUD, you have to go back to the Great Recession years to see prices this low.Understandably, that might raise concerns. Typically, cheap stocks are cheap for a reason. In this case, Anheuser-Busch got rattled by the mass restaurant closure. Also, all popular cheap beer brands suffered a massive revenue reduction due to the quarantining of sports.However, the eventual return of sports -- as NASCAR demonstrated -- augurs well for BUD stock. Sure, there many not be fans in the stands but that will change over the next few years. Additionally, sports events provide an incentive for increased grocery sales of cheap beer, which is a net positive for this industry. Yamana Gold (AUY)Source: Shutterstock Fundamentally, you wouldn't consider Yamana Gold cheap. Currently, shares sport a forward P/E ratio of 31.5, which is high compared to the metals and mining industry. But on a technical basis, it's still one of the cheap stocks that you can pick up below double-digit prices.I'll freely concede that such thinking alone is a terrible reason to buy equity in an organization. But AUY stock is riding on the enthusiasm of the gold market. And while the yellow metal has frustrated many investors over the years, this time is different.Yes, those may be the four most dangerous words in investing. However, when Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell states that the U.S. economy faces unprecedented risks, this phrase is justified. * 7 Excellent Penny Stocks Ready to Roar Further, the labor market continues to print an ugly picture. Over a nine-week period, 40 million Americans filed for initial jobless claims. This number will probably continue to rise uncomfortably, giving AUY stock a cynical edge. Simon Property Group (SPG)Source: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com Usually, being the biggest U.S. operator in an industry is cause for celebration. But for Simon Property Group, which specializes in shopping malls, this distinction suddenly became a liability. Obviously, with the onset of stay-at-home orders, social distancing protocols and a sense of fear over contracting Covid-19, very few people could -- or even wanted -- to leave their homes. Naturally, SPG stock tanked.However, shares might interest risk-tolerant contrarians. I must be clear: This is among the riskiest of risky cheap stocks. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend spending a dime more than what your dumb money allocation allows.That said, Simon Property will gradually open stores as states lift their restrictions. As out-of-state travel data revealed, pent-up demand caused many Americans to run to regions that first reopened their businesses. We could see a similar dynamic play out for SPG stock.Another reason to be optimistic is that the company owns a large portfolio of outlet malls. Although traditional department stores are out of favor, retailers offering discounts will never go out of style. ViacomCBS (VIAC)Source: Jer123 / Shutterstock.com At first glance, you'd expect the quarantines to help lift ViacomCBS. Although a traditional content and entertainment powerhouse, ViacomCBS offers mainstream programs that many viewers find compelling. Yet that didn't help VIAC stock on the technical front, with shares plummeting throughout much of February and March.To be fair, VIAC has found robust momentum since hitting its March bottom. Despite that, shares are still discounted relative to their beginning-of-year price. Thus, ViacomCBS qualifies as one of the cheap stocks to buy amid this pandemic.More importantly, VIAC stock has a credible upside pathway. Mainly, the underlying company probably slipped into the background as pure streaming plays like Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stole its thunder. However, as we work through this crisis, ViacomCBS becomes more compelling. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality For one thing, ViacomCBS has trusted news brands, which is more crucial than ever before. Additionally, the return of sports -- even in a mitigated fashion -- is a net positive for VIAC due to its live broadcasts. Champignon Brands (SHRMF)Source: Shutterstock Technically the cheapest of the cheap stocks on this list, Champignon Brands can be had for less than two bucks. Admittedly, this announcement will cause many investors to turn away from this company, and that's a good thing. You don't want to touch SHRMF stock if you can't take the heat.But if you can stomach the volatility, Champignon could be one of the most exciting opportunities available. Levered toward the burgeoning psychedelic medicine industry, SHRMF stock may strike you as another vice name. Actually, it's much more than that. Psychedelics offer profoundly positive implications toward addressing mental health issues.Most notable of all, Champignon Brands operates in a market that features incredibly high barriers to entry. Unlike cannabis, which anyone with enough drive can engage, psychedelics are strictly controlled by the federal government. Thus, your money is going to medicinal research, not toward a shady retail market.A former senior business analyst for Sony Electronics, Josh Enomoto has helped broker major contracts with Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the past several years, he has delivered unique, critical insights for the investment markets, as well as various other industries including legal, construction management, and healthcare.
