General Electric

General Electric [NYSE: GE] plans to divert engines from Boeing [NYSE: BA] to European rival Airbus. Its chief executive Larry Culp looks optimistic and stood by its financial and cash generation goals despite concerns regarding the losses from the Boeing 737 MAX production halt.

The Boeing 737 MAX was involved in two crashes that killed almost 350 people between October 2108 and March 2019.

The company expects to generate around $4bn in free cash flows this year. “While the company’s cash burn could worsen to as much as $2bn in the first quarter because of pressure from the Max crisis, we expect a rebound later in the year,” Larry Culp said at a Barclays conference yesterday.
