Reports Q2 revenue $141.1M, consensus $156.65M. Backlog of unshipped orders at February 28, 2015 was $74.3 million compared with $89.3 million at February 28, 2014 and $68.3 million at November 30, 2014. The backlog at February 28, 2014 and November 30, 2014 included $12.7 million for the Golden Gate Bridge project, now completed. The current period includes $7.9 million of backlog from Elecsys Corporation. Rick Parod, president and CEO, commented, “While the longer term drivers to our markets remain positive, the cyclical contraction for irrigation equipment has continued. The U.S. irrigation market has been impacted by lower commodity prices and lower farm incomes, while international irrigation markets have remained more stable, although competitive pressure is increasing. The infrastructure segment made a significant contribution to the quarter with the installation of a Road Zipper System on the Golden Gate Bridge, and we remain optimistic about additional growth opportunities.”

13:39 EDTMONMonsanto addresses assessment on glyphosate by IARC
Monsanto Company further addressed last week’s assessment on glyphosate by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. “We are outraged with this assessment,” said Dr. Robb Fraley, Monsanto’s Chief Technology Officer. “This conclusion is inconsistent with the decades of ongoing comprehensive safety reviews by the leading regulatory authorities around the world that have concluded that all labeled uses of glyphosate are safe for human health. This result was reached by selective ‘cherry picking’ of data and is a clear example of agenda-driven bias.” The repeated safety assessments by regulatory authorities over the last three decades have formed the foundation for the long history of safe, highly effective use of this important agricultural tool in more than 160 countries around the world. Decisions regarding product safety and approvals for pesticides are governed by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Commission, as well as independent scientific advisory bodies such as the European Food Safety Authority. IARC has no regulatory authority and its decision does not impact glyphosate’s label, current registration or use. “Safety is the top priority for every person who works at Monsanto. Glyphosate-based herbicides on the market meet the rigorous standards set by the regulatory and health authorities who work every day to protect human health, and we want our customers and consumers to be assured of these evaluations,” Fraley added. In contrast to the comprehensive review that regulators around the world have completed over three decades, IARC issued its classification based on a limited data review after hours of discussion at a one-week meeting. Further, IARC is one of four programs within the WHO that have reviewed the safety of glyphosate and their classification is inconsistent with the assessments of the other programs. Two of the WHO programs – the Core Assessment Group and the International Programme on Chemical Safety – both concluded glyphosate is not carcinogenic. The WHO Guidelines for Drinking-Water Quality program concluded glyphosate does not represent a hazard to human health.

A World Health Organization agency said Friday that Glyphosate, a herbicide marketed by Monsanto under the Roundup brand and other companies, has the potential to cause cancer in humans, says the Wall Street Journal.

12:39 EDTSCHNSteels stocks lower after report of rising China exports, analyst note
Steel stocks are lower after a Wall Street Journal report on increasing Chinese steel exports and an analyst note that lowered price targets on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: A Wall Street Journal report from Sunday night pointed out that China's steel exports rose 63% to 9.2M tons in January from a year earlier. China produces as much steel as the rest of the world combined and as the country's growth slows it is shipping its excess steel overseas, resulting in lower prices and spurring steel producers around the globe to seek government protection. ANALYST VIEW: In a note to investors, Jefferies said steel fundamentals stayed challenging throughout the first quarter and the firm lowered its price targets on a number of names in the sector to account for its reduced estimates. Jefferies lowered its price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $21 from $26, cut its price target on Schnitzer Steel (SCHN) to $17 from $20, reduced its price target on Nucor (NUE) to $57 from $61, and trimmed its target on AK Steel (AKS) to $3.75 from $4.75. Jefferies noted that a majority of its contacts expect steel prices to trough sometime in the second quarter and the firm said it believes "mini-mill" producers like Steel Dynamics (STLD) and Nucor are best positioned in the group. PRICE ACTION:In midday trading, United States Steel is down 1.24%, AK Steel is lower by 2%, Schnitzer Steel Industries is down 4.3%, Steel Dynamics is down 0.96%, and Nucor is up fractionally.
