07:46 EDTCATCaterpillar sees Q1 sales, revenues significantly lower than year ago
The company says "While we are not providing a specific sales and revenues and profit outlook for 1Q13, we are expecting that sales and revenues in Q1 are likely to be significantly lower than 1Q12. The middle of our full-year outlook for sales and revenues is about $2B below 2012 sales and revenues. We expect that sales and revenues will decline more than $2B in the 1Q13 compared with 1Q12. Much of the expected decline in Q1 sales is a result of the continuation of reduced production as dealers are expected to continue to lower their new machine inventories. We expect that dealer inventory reductions will be negative to sales in 1Q13, while in 1Q12 dealers increased inventory which benefitted Caterpillar sales." Profit is also expected to be significantly lower in 1Q13 than in 1Q12a result of lower expected sales and the negative cost impact of continuing low production levels and declining inventory.

10:26 EDTCATGoldman says sell Titan with ag and mining weakness expected to continue
Goldman Sachs downgraded Titan International (TWI) to Sell from Neutral today, saying that weakness in agriculture and mining would continue to weigh on the company's results. Goldman's downgrade comes after the company reported much weaker than expected results on November 6. Titan makes tires and wheels used in off-road vehicles which are utilized by farmers and mining and construction companies. WHAT'S NEW Titan derives 80% of its revenue from agriculture and mining, so the weakness in those sectors will continue to hurt its results going forward, wrote Goldman analyst David Tamberino. Additionally, farmers have less money to spend on capital projects, reducing the likelihood that they will adopt Titan's new LSW tires, according to the analyst. Given these factors and the January 2017 maturity of Titan's convertible note, the company could be faced with a cash crunch, the analyst warned. Moreover, Titan is facing increased competition, according to Tamberino. He sharply lowered his 2015-2017 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization estimates for the company and slashed his price target on the name to $3 from $8. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Deere (DE), Caterpillar (CAT), and AGCO (AGCO) sell heavy machinery used in agriculture. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Titan sank 11% to $4.50.
