General Electric Co (NYSE:GE) is throwing its hat into the earnings ring before the open on Tuesday, July 25, in which analysts expect the company to post second-quarter profits of 46 cents per share. Over the past two years, GE has turned in positive post-earnings sessions in five of the last eight reports. The stock has averaged a 3.4% next-day move, regardless of direction, which is lower than the 5.4% the options pits are pricing in this time around. 

On the charts, General Electric stock has been rallying with help from its 40-day moving average. Fresh off a July 17 five-year peak of $112.15, the equity is up 70.8% year-to-date. At last glance today, the stock was trading flat at $111.24. 

Options bulls have been chiming in on the outperformance. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), GE's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.48 ranks higher than 96% of readings from the past year.
