13:08 EDTMTWOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and saw several swings throughout the morning. Near midday the averages were mixed, with the Dow a bit higher and the Nasdaq weighed down by weakness across the semiconductor sector. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of semiconductor makers, including industry giant Intel (INTC), were sharply lower after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” Near noon, Microchip dropped 11%, Intel fell almost 4%, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped over 6%, Micron (MU) dropped 6% and Fairchild (FCS) declined 12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied 35% after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of companies that, similarly to Microchip, warned that their quarterly results will likely miss expectations, including Procera Networks (PKT), which plunged 34%, Manitowoc (MTW), which fell 9%, and Sizmek (SZMK), which dropped 21%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 38.02, or 0.23%, to 16,697.27, the Nasdaq was down 35.89, or 0.82%, to 4,342.45, and the S&P 500 was up 0.42, or 0.02%, to 1,928.63.

19:11 EDTMTWManitowoc sees FY14 Crane segment revenues declining
For FY14, Manitowoc now anticipates Crane segment revenues to decline by mid-to-high single-digit percentages compared to FY13 revenues, while it expects Crane operating margins for FY14 to be in the 7% range. In addition, Manitowoc now expects FY14 Foodservice segment revenues to be up by low-to-mid single-digit percentages as compared to revenues for the prior-year period. The company expects this segment’s operating margins for FY14 to be in the 15% range. In addition, the company is adjusting its guidance for end-of-year debt-to-EBITDA to approximately 3.5 times, versus below 3 times previously expected, and is reducing its interest expense guidance to a low-to-mid $90M range. The company is reaffirming the remainder of its full-year outlook: capital expenditures of approximately $90M, depreciation & amortization of approximately $120M, amortization of deferred financing fees of less than $5M, and effective tax rate in the mid-teens percentage range driven by expected Q3 discrete items.
