05:59 EDTITGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link

11:08 EDTANRPeabody plunges after Moody's lowers credit rating
Shares of coal miner Peabody (BTU) are lower in late morning trading after Moody's Investors Service downgraded the company's credit rating last night. WHAT'S NEW: Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Peabody, including the corporate family rating, to B3 from B2, probability of default rating to B3-PD from B2-PD. The firm noted that the outlook is negative. Moody's said that the downgrade "reflects our expectation of continued deterioration in the company's credit metrics, more precipitous than we had forecasted previously, due to the ongoing decline in the seaborne metallurgical coal markets." The firm expects that the company's Debt/EBITDA, as adjusted, will approach 9x in 2015. Moody's said that although it anticipates some recovery in 2016, it sees the leverage remaining elevated at around 7x. Absent asset sales, the company will generate negative free cash flows in 2015 and 2016, Moody's said in the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Moody's said that a further downgrade would be considered if liquidity deteriorated, free cash flows were repeatedly negative and/or Debt/EBITDA exceeded 8x on a sustained basis. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Peabody are down over 9.5% to $2.08 in late morning trading, rebounding from an earlier low of $1.92. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the coal mining space include Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI) and CONSOL Energy (CNX).

This benefits our customers, our employees, and Deere's business opportunities."
