18:33 EDTDEDeere urges ratification of Trans-Pacific Partnership
Deere & Company urged the U.S. Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, saying the trade agreement signed by 12 countries today is a much-needed step to boost the global economy. Samuel Allen, Deere & Company chairman and CEO said the global marketplace is important to Deere's employees as nearly 40% of the company's revenues already come from sales outside the U.S. and Canada. Exports at Deere's larger agricultural and construction equipment factories in Iowa and Illinois account for between one-third and one-fourth of all units manufactured at those facilities. Deere serves customers in the TPP participating countries and has facilities in seven of them. The agreement is expected to boost trade flows among all participants and strengthen global food security by improving efficiency in meeting food and feed needs as well as improving infrastructure across the Asia-Pacific region.

12:03 EDTAGCOOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Wall Street began the session in negative territory and the averages have remained there throughout the day as oil once again weighs on stocks. The price of oil has slid another 4%, giving the commodity a roughly 10% loss over the past two trading sessions. The market's late day rally yesterday gave hope for a decoupling between equities and oil prices, but that appears to be a one day reprieve as the stocks are back in lock-step with crude prices. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. In Europe, statistics agency Eurostat reported that unemployment across the eurozone decreased by 49,000 to a total of 16.75M in December dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest since September 2011 at 10.4%. In central bank news, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Reserve Bank of India both held their benchmark interest rates steady, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) advanced 5% in the wake of its report of better than expected quarterly earnings and revenue, pushing Google's parent company to overtake Apple (AAPL) as the world's most valuable publicly-traded company in the process... Exxon Mobil (XOM) reported better than expected revenue and profits in the fourth quarter, but its shares slid 2.5% amid the renewed weakness in oil prices. Shares of fellow oil major BP (BP) plunged 8% in New York trading after reporting a steep quarterly loss, largely due to $2.6B in charges related to impairments of Upstream assets as well as restructuring... Pfizer (PFE) reported better than expected fourth quarter results, but forecast 2016 revenue and earnings below analysts' estimates, pushing its shares down fractionally. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Syngenta (SYT), which rallied 4.5% after Bloomberg reported that ChemChina was close to a deal to buy the company for nearly $43B. Also higher were Mattel (MAT), Michael Kors (KORS), and Fabrinet (FN), which gained 12%, 22%, and 12.5%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. Among the noteworthy losers was Twitter (TWTR), which fell 8% after it was downgraded to Sell at Stifel and following a report claimed that tweets on the service are down 50% from their peak. Also lower were AGCO (AGCO), Harris (HRS), and Pitney Bowes (PBI), which were down 10%, 9.5%, and 11%, respectively, after reporting quarterly earnings. In addition, Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) lost 4% and 3.6%, respectively, after reporting U.S. sales for the month of January. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 239.86, or 1.46%, to 16,209.32, the Nasdaq was down 64.83, or 1.4%, to 4,555.54, and the S&P 500 was down 27.87, or 1.44%, to 1,911.51.

Backs FY16 sales view about $7B, consensus $6.95B. Softer industry demand for farm equipment across all regions and the unfavorable effects of foreign currency translation are expected to negatively impact AGCO's sales and earnings for 2016. Gross and operating margins are projected to be below 2015 levels due to the impact of lower sales and production volumes, a weaker sales mix and increased investment in product development expenses. Benefits from the company's cost reduction initiatives are expected to partially offset the volume-related impacts.

11:18 EDTDE, AGCOGoldman says sell Caterpillar with more pain to come from commodity slump
The shares of Caterpillar (CAT) are dropping after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral. Demand for machinery will probably drop as commodity producers continue to lower their capital expenditures going forward, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Commodity producers are likely to reduce their capital spending, including their expenditures on machinery, according to Goldman analyst Jerry Revich. These trends will be driven by the producers' "challenging returns" and weak balance sheets, he believes. The commodity producers' slump will affect Caterpillar in two ways, the analyst explained. Specifically, 30% of Caterpillar's revenue is derived from commodity producers, while it obtains 25% of its revenue from countries that export commodities, where overall demand for machinery will probably fall, explained Revich. Moreover, although analysts' consensus estimates indicate that they expect Caterpillar's profit to bottom this year, capital spending in Caterpillar's main end markets appears to be above average levels, said Revich, who expects the company's 2017 EPS to come in 15% below the consensus outlook. The analyst cut his price target on the shares to $51 from $67. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Caterpillar dropped 4% to $58.54. Other machinery makers also declined, with Deere (DE) falling 2.8% to $72.54, AGCO Corporation (AGCO) slumping 3.6% to $44.28 and Joy Global (JOY) giving back 3.2% to $8.73.
