GE Stock Falls Again as Liquidity Crunch Fear Rises

General Electric’s (GE) nightmare doesn’t seem to be over yet. The company’s stock fell nearly 7% yesterday, its 12th loss in the last 13 sessions. Yesterday’s blow came after the US industrial conglomerate’s newly appointed chair and CEO, Larry Culp, said during a CNBC interview that he feels “urgency” to lower debt and would do that by selling assets. Also, its free cash flows were negative in all three quarters of 2018, which indicates the company’s severe liquidity problem.
