18:33 EDTDEDeere urges ratification of Trans-Pacific Partnership
Deere & Company urged the U.S. Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, saying the trade agreement signed by 12 countries today is a much-needed step to boost the global economy. Samuel Allen, Deere & Company chairman and CEO said the global marketplace is important to Deere's employees as nearly 40% of the company's revenues already come from sales outside the U.S. and Canada. Exports at Deere's larger agricultural and construction equipment factories in Iowa and Illinois account for between one-third and one-fourth of all units manufactured at those facilities. Deere serves customers in the TPP participating countries and has facilities in seven of them. The agreement is expected to boost trade flows among all participants and strengthen global food security by improving efficiency in meeting food and feed needs as well as improving infrastructure across the Asia-Pacific region.

11:18 EDTDEGoldman says sell Caterpillar with more pain to come from commodity slump
The shares of Caterpillar (CAT) are dropping after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral. Demand for machinery will probably drop as commodity producers continue to lower their capital expenditures going forward, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Commodity producers are likely to reduce their capital spending, including their expenditures on machinery, according to Goldman analyst Jerry Revich. These trends will be driven by the producers' "challenging returns" and weak balance sheets, he believes. The commodity producers' slump will affect Caterpillar in two ways, the analyst explained. Specifically, 30% of Caterpillar's revenue is derived from commodity producers, while it obtains 25% of its revenue from countries that export commodities, where overall demand for machinery will probably fall, explained Revich. Moreover, although analysts' consensus estimates indicate that they expect Caterpillar's profit to bottom this year, capital spending in Caterpillar's main end markets appears to be above average levels, said Revich, who expects the company's 2017 EPS to come in 15% below the consensus outlook. The analyst cut his price target on the shares to $51 from $67. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Caterpillar dropped 4% to $58.54. Other machinery makers also declined, with Deere (DE) falling 2.8% to $72.54, AGCO Corporation (AGCO) slumping 3.6% to $44.28 and Joy Global (JOY) giving back 3.2% to $8.73.
