General Electric Co.’s stock GE, -0.22% edged up 0.2% in afternoon trade Monday, erasing earlier losses of as much as 2.3%, in a late attempt to snap its losing streak at 8 sessions. The industrial conglomerate’s stock had tumbled over the past eight sessions, highlighted by the 5.2% drop on April 8 after J.P. Morgan analyst Stephen Tusa downgraded GE back to underweight, after he had helped spark a rally in December with his upgrade to neutral. A ninth-straight decline on Monday would have been the longest losing streak since the 9-day stretch ended Nov. 5, 2018. GE’s stock has still run up 24% year to date, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.10% has gained 13%.
