We hear on the rumor mill that UBS has downgraded GE on the dilution effects new equity issues are likely to have. GE looked like a genius for being in the finance business, both for the returns, and to boost sales by having tight control over underwriting for their more cash challenged customers. Today, that division is, of course, a huge weight around GE's neck. GE enjoyed the fruits of yesterday's rally. The stock hadn't flirted with the teens since 2003, and watching it slip below $20 recently was a bemusing, if sad, experience. No word on what Jack may have called Jeff in the later hours of those days.
Charty Goodness after the jump.
Update: Added 10 year and 5 days charts to satisfy some irate (but erroneous) commenters.
