Why General Electric, Booking Holdings, and Six Flags Stocks All Surged Thursday

In a curious confluence of circumstances, shares of stocks as varied as General Electric (NYSE: GE), Booking Holdings (NASDAQ: BKNG), and Six Flags Entertainment (NYSE: SIX) are all surging today — and apparently on no news directly affecting any of them. None of these three stocks reported earnings today nor received any kind words from Wall Street analysts. Regardless, in 2:40 p.m. EDT trading, shares of GE stock are running 5.7% higher, Booking Holdings is up 5.1%, and Six Flags has gained 8.9%.
