My stockbroker wants me to buy 400 shares of General Electric. Is he nuts? Last June, Jeff “Big Melt” Immelt, who took control of General Electric (GE-$18.47) from the iconic Jack Welch just before 9/11, announced he’d be stepping down as CEO. Good! He’s been replaced by John Flannery, a 30-year GE veteran who ran the company’s health care division. Huge yawn! Most doubt that Flannery and his personal broom can hurry GE’s price recovery.
