14:28 EDTFDX, BA, ORCL, CATMarket poised for losing week as China, Europe data pulls down shares
Stocks are set to end the week lower after weak economic data from China and Europe made many investors more pessimistic about the global economy. MACRO NEWS: A Chinese purchasing managers' index for March compiled by HSBC fell to 48.1, the lowest level since last November, HSBC reported. Any level below 50 indicates that the country's manufacturing sector contracted... The euro zone's manufacturing base also appears to have contracted, as a March purchasing managers' index for the bloc came in at 48.7, down from 49.3 in February... Also disappointing investors was U.S. housing data, as 313,000 new homes were sold last month, versus the consensus estimate of 325,000. An index of home prices for January and existing home sales for February also came in below expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Industrial companies, including Caterpillar (CAT) and Boeing (BA), saw their stocks decline this week in the wake of the weaker economic reports... FedEx (FDX) reported higher than expected adjusted Q3 EPS but lowered its 2012 EPS guidance... Oracle (ORCL) posted stronger than expected results, but its stock is poised to decline significantly for the week.

10:14 EDTCATAnalyst says buy Caterpillar, Joy Global before mining bottoms
The shares of Joy Global (JOY) and Caterpillar (CAT) are climbing after research firm Baird analyst Mircea Dobre upgraded both names, citing a potential bottom in commodity prices. Both companies develop mining equipment. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Baird's Dobre upgraded Joy Global and Caterpillar to Outperform from Market Perform. There are signs that the worst of the downturn in commodity prices may have passed, the analyst stated. Additionally, the shares of both Caterpillar and Joy Global historically bottom three to five quarters before mining equipment shipments rebound, according to Dobre. Consequently, investors who wait for evidence of a turnaround in the companies' mining equipment bookings may be late to the party, the analyst warned. Both stocks have now underperformed the market by amounts that are similar to their worst underperfomance during the early 1980s commodity bust, according to Dobre, who raised the price target on Caterpillar to $101 from $80 and on Joy Global to $62 from $45. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Joy Global climbed nearly 4% to $43.64 and Caterpillar rose 1.5% to $88.60.
