General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) announced the end of its "Corporate Audit Staff" program, which allowed workers to rotate through multiple divisions of the company in an effort to learn more about future leadership positions. The program was also part of CEO Larry Culp's attempts to simplifying operations. Meanwhile, GE was last seen down 0.9% to trade at $8.90.

In response, RBC hiked its price target to $10 from $9 following today's announcement. Coming into today, analysts' sentiment was already bullish. In fact, this morning, seven of the 12 in coverage recommended a "strong buy."

After a relatively big Nov. 9 bull gap sent the equity above the $8.40 level for the first time since June, General Electric stock locked in support from its 320-day moving average. Longer term, GE has taken a 21.2% year-over-year dive, but has managed to tack on 54.9% in six months.

Today's options pits are popping with activity on both sides of the fence, as well. At last check, over 46,000 calls and 11,000 puts have already exchanged hands -- 1.8 times the intraday average and volume pacing in the slightly elevated 95th percentile of its annual range. Most popular by far is the weekly 11/13 8.50-strike call, followed by the January 2021 10-strike call
