CFRA analyst Colin Scarola reiterated his $6 price target for General Electric Co.'s stock /zigman2/quotes/208495069/composite GE -1.63% , which is 9.4% below current levels, citing his outlook for "poor cost performance" after the industrial conglomerate reported disappointing second-quarter results, which included a "severe decline" in revenue for GE's Aviation business. "The [COVID-19] pandemic's outsized impact on air travel is driving the downturn in Aviation, but we note a materially worse trend than similar businesses," such as at rival Raytheon Technologies Corp. /zigman2/quotes/203237915/composite RTX -0.46% . GE Aviation revenue fell 44% to $4.38 billion, missing the FactSet consensus of $4.62 billion. Meanwhile, Raytheon reported Tuesday that Collins Aerospace sales fell 35% to $4.30 billion, above expectations of $3.56 billion, according to FactSet. And Honeywell International Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205583690/composite HON -1.04% reported on July 24 aerospace sales that dropped 28% to $2.54 billion, but beat the FactSet consensus of $2.41 billion. Scarola said despite his "poor outlook for GE's demand and cost performance," he was keeping his rating at hold, as the 40% year-to-date decline leaves shares near fair value. Over the same time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -1.08% has lost 6.9%.
