The Stocks to Avoid Article noted a 30% decline GE's operating cash flow from the first nine months of 1999 to the firsst nine monthsof 2000. However, a year to year comparison of operating cash flow from GE's activities showed an increase from $11.8 billion to $15.4 billion, based on the January 17, 2001 earnings announcement. GECapital's operating income showed a decrease of $6.5 billion in the first nine months of 1999. GE's 1999 10-K states that "cash managment activities of GE and GECS are separate and distinct..."
