It's no secret that Real Money Stock of the Day General Electric (GE)  (and GE investors) has had quite the ride.

After being one of the original 12 companies listed on the the newly formed Dow Jones Industrial Average back in 1896, GE  was removed from the Dow on June 19, 2018 after more than 100 years. 

But it wasn't so long ago that GE was the belle of the ball.

Most recently, GE has made headlines for issuing 2019 guidance that left investors wondering if Larry Culp can flip the switch on the stock.
