It's been a volatile week for the energy sector, with last weekend's Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack dictating much of the space's movement throughout the week. General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is no exception, with shares rushing to a May high of $13.58 on Monday before taking a nosedive. Yesterday's broad-market surge helped give the equity a leg up, and it looks like this positive price action is being extended into today's trading. 

The equity is up 1.5% at $13.17 this morning, after Citigroup reinstated coverage on the equity with a "buy" rating and a $17 price target. The analyst noted a "gradual but likely" recovery for General Electric's aviation unit, as well as the company's progress in rebuilding itself, which could spark "material upside" for the stock. 

The pop has put GE just shy of its 60-day moving average -- a long-term area of support that the equity slipped under over the last two sessions. The 80-day, however, kept most of this week's losses in check, helping GE maintain its impressive year-over-year lead of 130.4%. 

Coming into today, the brokerage bunch was split on the the equity. Five of the analysts covering GE called it a "buy" or better, while five said "hold." The 12-month consensus price target of $14.54, meanwhile, is a 10.7% premium to current levels.
