07:37 EDTCATCaterpillar raises FY14 EPS view to $6.20 from $6.10, consensus $6.23
Narrows FY14 revenue view to $54B-$56B from $53.2B-$58.8B, consensus $56.23B. Most of the change in the mid-point of the range is in Construction Industries and reflects weaker sales in China, the CIS and in the Africa/Middle East region. The expectation for restructuring costs in 2014 is now about $400M—the bottom end of the $400M-$500M range that was previously expected. The company said, "After a sizable drop in sales and revenues in 2013, our ongoing forecasting process has, since the third quarter of last year, pegged 2014 as a roughly ­flat year for sales. That's still the case. There have been plusses and minuses, but they've both been relatively muted in the context of our total sales and revenues. While we'd certainly like to see improvement in economies around the world, and more specifically, the mining industry, the stability that we've seen this year has helped. Even though sales and revenues are relatively flat compared to last year, we've improved the bottom line with better execution and continued focus on costs."
