GE trades $20, now what?

With all noise on taxes the slide in GE is quietly going under the rug.  Just last week I wrote here it would be more sensible to price GE at $20 on a reduced dividend.  GE is cratering on a downgrade now of all things before the big dividend cut.  Downgrade it at $35, but at $20?  Many don’t think the yield can hold at the near 5% level.  If it does get cut, we should see lower prices.

Will GE do it or not?

Not so quietly GE has fallen from the low 30’s into the low 20’s with SPX and INDU making all-time highs.  Massive asset sales could be on the block and the equally massive 4.4% TTM dividend could be on the block too.  I think most of the weakness in GE is centered on those issues.  Option Pit is giving a free credit spread webinar tonight so this is an inkling of that.  And no GE will not be the topic.
