16:20 EDTANDEAndersons sees Plant Nutrient businesses returning to historical profitability
"As 2016 commences, railroad shipping volumes continue to feel pressure, particularly in the energy sector. The Rail Group is well positioned for the slowing rail cycle with currently high utilization rates and a highly diverse lease customer base... [For Grain Group,] Corn acres to be planted in 2016 are estimated to be nearly 90M acres, which are up slightly from 2015. Soybean acres to be planted are estimated to be approximately 84M acres, which is up approximately 2% compared to 2015. Wheat acres have been reported to be approximately 3M acres lower this year. Assuming weather conditions are less detrimental, and crop yields return to their trending improvement levels these conditions will create a good opportunity for the Grain Group in 2H16. [For Plant Nutrient Group,] in a normal weather year, the company would expect the legacy Plant Nutrient businesses to return to historic levels of profitability. Nutra-Flo is expected to provide a positive contribution to earnings in 2016 supporting margin growth for the group as specialty products increase in the mix over time," Andersons said.

07:37 EDTOLNOlin Corp. performance can improve, says SunTrust
Noting that Olin's stock has dropped nearly 14% since it provided weaker than expected guidance, SunTrust says it thinks the lack of details provided by the company regarding its outlook contributed to the decline. The firm expects the company to provide more details on its outlook at its Investor Day tomorrow, and it thinks positive developments regarding the company's performance have been overlooked. SunTrust cut its price target on the shares to $22 from $32 to reflect multiple compression in the sector but keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

07:40 EDTBCBrunswick sees 2016 adjusted EPS $3.35-$3.50, consensus $3.44
The company said, "We expect our businesses' top-line performance will continue to benefit from the continuation of solid growth in the U.S. and Europe and the success of our new products, partially offset by the negative impact of a stronger U.S. dollar and weakness in certain other international markets. As a result, our plan, including the Cybex International acquisition completed on Jan. 20, 2016, reflects revenue growth rates in 2016 to be in the range of 9 to 11 percent, absent any significant changes in our global macroeconomic assumptions. In total, acquisitions are expected to account for about 5 percent of 2016's projected growth, reflecting the impact of completed acquisitions."
07:38 EDTBCBrunswick reports Q4 EPS 52c, consensus 45c
