44280 ges stock rises again toward longest win streak in 6 years

Shares of General Electric Co. GE, +2.18% rallied 2.3% in afternoon trading Thursday toward a seven-week high, to put them on track for the longest win streak in six years. The industrial conglomerate’s stock’s extended rally comes two days after GE reported a big second-quarter profit beat, surprisingly positive free cash flow and the first revenue beat in six quarters. The stock has run up 19.8% amid a 10-day win streak, which would be its best performance over any 10-day period since hiked up 20.6% over the 10-day stretch ended Nov. 20, 2020. A 10-straight gain would be the longest win streak since the 10-day streak ended July 19, 2016, but the stock rose just 4.7% during that win streak. Despite the recent gains, GE’s stock has still lost 5.8% over the past three months and dropped 22.5% year to date, while the S&P 500 SPX, +1.21% has declined 5.1% the past three months and lost 14.6% this year.
