Just last week, shares of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) surged almost 10% after it was announced that the CEO would be stepping down. General Electric is one of those old school companies that is having a hard time getting investors to believe they are on the cutting edge of the future. Thus, they have not traded at a price-to-earnings ratio of many other technology companies, even after selling off GE Financial and getting rid of the boring parts of the company. Investors view the current CEO as part of the problem. He is old school when the stock market demands new school. When it was announced, Wall Street cheered and General Electric shares jumped. However, since that day, the stock has faltered and faded, coming back to the gap fill from the sharp pop day. This is known as major support.
Believe it or not, the stock has even moved slightly lower, now into a major level I believe is a strong buy. The level is $27.75 and is a major trend line as seen in the chart below. This is a gift. Investors can buy the stock below levels prior to the announcement. I am looking to swing trade the stock (the trade will be posted here live) with an upside target of $30.50.
