14:00 EDTAGCO, DEApril WASDE data imply modest row crop cash improvement, says Wells Fargo
Well Fargo estimates that the latest WASDE report from the USDA implies U.S. row crop farmer cash receipts declining 13% in 2013/14 from the prior year, which is a modest improvement from March's implied forecast. The firm notes that the data still suggests an apparent decrease in 2013/2014 farm cash flow and keeps its Underperform ratings on Deere (DE) and AGCO (AGCO).

12:22 EDTDECaterpillar sinks after guidance cut, drags down machinery peers
Shares of Caterpillar (CAT) are falling after the company reported lower than expected profit and reduced its full-year guidance to well below analysts' consensus outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Caterpillar reported fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding certain items, of $1.35, versus analysts' consensus outlook of $1.55. The company's Q4 revenue came in slightly above expectations. However, Caterpillar provided fiscal 2015 EPS guidance, excluding certain items, of about $4.75, versus the consensus outlook of $6.67, and its revenue outlook was about $50B, compared with analysts' consensus estimate of $55B. In October, Caterpillar had provided a "preliminary outlook" for 2015 of no change to a slight increase in its revenue, versus 2014 levels. In 2014 the company reported revenue of $55.18B. Caterpillar blamed its disappointing guidance on weak commodity prices that are negatively impacting its Energy & Transportation business, as well as its mining equipment unit. Caterpillar also lowered its expectations for construction equipment sales in China, noting that while its market position in China has improved, 2015 expectations for the construction industry in China are now lower. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Wells Fargo wrote that Caterpillar's results are a bad sign for other machinery makers, including Cummins (CMI), Deere (DE), and Terex (TEX). The firm kept a Market Perform rating on Caterpillar. PRICE ACTION: in early afternoon trading, Caterpillar fell 7.5% to $79.61, Cummins dropped 4.6% to $141, Deere declined 3% to $85.76, and Terex fell 4.4% to $22.50.
