Story Highlights

General Electric stock has a “Perfect 10” Smart Score on TipRanks. It may present a promising opportunity for investors with long-term horizons.

General Electric (NYSE:GE) has a “Perfect 10” Smart Score on TipRanks, which implies that the stock has the potential to beat the benchmark index. The multinational conglomerate operates through the Aerospace, HealthCare, and Renewable Energy and Power segments.

The Smart Score tool considers eight different factors, including analyst ratings, technical analysis, and insider activity, among others, and assigns a score to stocks between 1 and 10, with 10 being the best.

Let’s check why GE stock scores a “Perfect 10” on TipRanks.

GE stock has gained about 27% in 2023 versus the 8.9% rally in the S&P 500 (SPX) and more than 2% in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). 

The company recently reported upbeat fourth-quarter results and provided an encouraging outlook for the full year 2023. The management expects revenues to grow in the high single digits, while adjusted earnings per share are anticipated to come in the range of $1.60 to $2.

Furthermore, earlier in January, General Electric completed the spin-off of its healthcare business. The company now plans to spin off its energy business next year. These strategic initiatives will help the company focus on the lucrative aviation business, which bodes well for its future performance.

Given the company’s growth initiatives, strong demand for jet engines, and solid fundamentals, it looks like there is more upside in the near term.
