General Electric Co. discovered a flaw in its newest power-plant turbines after a key part failed earlier this month, forcing utility Exelon Corp. to temporarily shut two Texas plants while GE makes repairs. GE said the problem is an “oxidation issue” related to a metal alloy that could cause distress on the fan blades of its HA gas turbine, hulking machines that generate electricity for thousands of homes. GE spent years developing the HA turbines, and the more-efficient design is central to GE’s efforts to compete with rivals such as Siemens AG in a difficult power market.
General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) shares have lost roughly a quarter of their value year-to-date, even as the company is embarking on a multiyear transformation plan to turnaround operations and refocus on core industrial businesses. The impact on asset value from a failure with a GE gas turbine product is a negative development for a company that has "little wriggle room," Tusa said in the downgrade note. Despite the company downplaying the issue as an "oxidation issue," Tusa said the problem is material enough for the customer, Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC), to have a plant shutdown.

JPM views GE's recent gas turbine failure in Texas as a "negative development for a company that has little wiggle room" for its struggling power business.
The company's cash -- GE is burning cash from operations but presumably will receive cash proceeds from divestitures -- would be much better utilized to service debt in the near term and buy back stock over the longer term. The consensus forecast for GE's 2019 earnings per share is exactly one dollar. It's impossible to know what each analyst is thinking in terms of the composition of GE in 2019 with regard to timing of divestitures, but a buck is a round figure and it's a good benchmark.
