10:26 EDTTWIGoldman says sell Titan with ag and mining weakness expected to continue
Goldman Sachs downgraded Titan International (TWI) to Sell from Neutral today, saying that weakness in agriculture and mining would continue to weigh on the company's results. Goldman's downgrade comes after the company reported much weaker than expected results on November 6. Titan makes tires and wheels used in off-road vehicles which are utilized by farmers and mining and construction companies. WHAT'S NEW Titan derives 80% of its revenue from agriculture and mining, so the weakness in those sectors will continue to hurt its results going forward, wrote Goldman analyst David Tamberino. Additionally, farmers have less money to spend on capital projects, reducing the likelihood that they will adopt Titan's new LSW tires, according to the analyst. Given these factors and the January 2017 maturity of Titan's convertible note, the company could be faced with a cash crunch, the analyst warned. Moreover, Titan is facing increased competition, according to Tamberino. He sharply lowered his 2015-2017 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization estimates for the company and slashed his price target on the name to $3 from $8. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Deere (DE), Caterpillar (CAT), and AGCO (AGCO) sell heavy machinery used in agriculture. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Titan sank 11% to $4.50.

17:32 EDTKSUNorfolk Southern spikes after Canadian Pacific proposes merger
Shares of railroad operator Norfolk Southern (NSC) are spiking in the after-hours after rival Canadian Pacific (CP) announced that it has sent an offer letter to Norfolk Southern proposing a business combination. WHAT'S NEW: After the close of trading on Tuesday, Canadian Pacific proposed a business combination with Norfolk Southern "that would create a transcontinental railroad with the scale and reach to deliver improved levels of service to customers and communities while enhancing competition and creating significant shareholder value." Canadian Pacific noted that the proposal reflects a "sizable premium in cash and stock offered to NS shareholders." The combined company would have a potential for faster earnings growth than either of the companies independently, CP noted, while offering unparalleled customer service and competitive rates to shippers." The combined company would innovate a new approach to terminal access that would allow another carrier to operate from a point of connection in the event the combined company failed to provide adequate service or competitive rates. The combination of NS and CP would provide a solution to "bottleneck pricing" and alleviate congestion in Chicago by channeling rail traffic away from Chicago. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to a Globe and Mail report from earlier Tuesday, Keith Creel the COO of Canadian Pacific, who was speaking at a transportation conference, said rail mergers are inevitable but the executive "refused" to confirm past reports that the railroad operator was in talks to acquire rival Norfolk Southern. ANALYST VIEW: ON November 12, research firm BB&T said it believes there are many scenarios in which a merger between Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern would benefit both companies. The firm said that Norfolk Southern shareholders would get a 20%-30% premium above the stock's current level, while Canadian Pacific's potential revenue growth issues would be solved and its 2018 EPS would be boosted by 20% plus. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Norfolk Southern are up 6.9% to $93.00, while Canadian Pacific shares are unchanged. OTHERS: Publicly traded companies in the space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU) and Union Pacific (UNP).
