14:04 EDTGEGeneral Electric technical comments ahead of results
The shares have traded essentially flat in the prior three months within a very narrow range. The bounds of that trading range are from $26.20 at the low to $27.53 at the high, with the bulk of the range from $26.20 to $27. Stocks that trade in such narrow ranges over this length of time are typically setting up for a break of the range and a larger move that will persist. In this case a decisive break below $26 and a breakout above $27.53 would be all that is required. If the news is more positive than expected, resistance above the range high as an upside objective would be at $28.09, the 52-week high, and then at $30.29. If the news disappoints, a break below $26 would see $24.94 and then $23.89 as next supports.

General Electric (GE) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Friday, July 18 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET.

CEO Jeff Immelt said, “We’re off to a good start to the year, and our 2014 framework remains unchanged. The environment is consistent with our expectations, with a positive bias.” During GE’s Q1 earnings call, management said the U.S. market gets "a little better every day," and Europe is improving. They said there was some improvement in demand for credit in Q1. They noted the company was on track to reduce share count in 2014, and on track to achieve its margin goal in 2016.
