Best High Tech Stocks To Own For 2021

Just a few months ago, investors were convinced that General Electric (NYSE:GE) was on the rocks because of its heavy debt load. Last fall, the company slashed its quarterly dividend all the way to $0.01 per share and sold nearly a quarter of its shares in Baker Hughes, a GE Company (NYSE:BHGE) as part of an effort to calm the markets.

However, any reasonable doubt about GE’s ability to repay its debts vanished on Monday. First, the company completed the merger of its transportation division with Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies (NYSE:WAB), generating immediate proceeds of $2.9 billion. Second, and even more importantly, GE announced a deal to sell its BioPharma business to Danaher (NYSE:DHR) for more than $21 billion.

Assessing GE’s debt problem

General Electric ended 2018 with approximately $55 billion of industrial net debt. Last June, it set out a target of reducing that to $25 billion by the end of 2020. The company also needs to inject more cash into GE Capital to shore up that unit’s balance sheet.
