GE’s 4.418 percent notes due 2035 traded 17 basis points wider at 10:22 a.m. in New York. Two analysts sounded alarms about the company’s liquidity and a Wall Street Journal report said former GE employees claim the company’s insurance business has failed to internally acknowledge slumping results over the years.
