    • General Electric (NYSE:GE) was the day's biggest loser among the Dow 30, as J.P. Morgan analysts Stephen Tusa and Rajat Gupta include GE among among industrial companies confronted with big risks through their exposure to oil drilling.
    • "The game has changed," the analysts say in now seeing a spread in EPS growth between those that have material exposure to energy and those that do not to a range of ~800 bps; regarding GE, JPM drops oil/gas growth to -2% from +5% and power/water growth to zero from +3% on the back of distributed power weakness, which it pegs at mid-single digit declines for two years, along with the onset of a decline in gas turbines.
    • The firm also downgrades Dover (NYSE:DOV) to Underweight, reaffirms its Underweight on Rockwell Automation (NYSE:ROK), and continues to avoid Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR), SPX Corp. (NYSE:SPW) and GE; it still likes a few with oil/gas exposure, such as Pentair (NYSE:PNR) given ongoing execution/margin potential, and Honeywell (NYSE:HON), given less direct impact and a strong balance sheet story.
