13:07 EDTTXT, IR, CAT, KMTUY, CMI, GECaterpillar guidance weighing on Industrial names
A number of industrial stocks are declining after one of the companies in the sector, Caterpillar (CAT), reported weaker than expected first quarter results and lowered its fiscal 2013 revenue guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Caterpillar explained that its expectations for its mining unit have dropped significantly. The company now expects sales of the mining machines it has traditionally sold to drop about 50% this year. It predicts that sales of machines made by Bucyrus, a mining equipment maker it acquired, to drop 15% this year. Caterpillar added that its expectations for its Construction Industries and Power Systems units remain similar to its previous outlook. Nevertheless, the industrial company reduced its fiscal 2013 revenue guidance to $57B-$61B, from its previous outlook of $60B-$68B. Analysts' consensus estimate was $62.74B. Caterpillar estimated that its earnings per share would be $7 if its revenue comes in at the midpoint of its guidance. It had previously provided FY13 EPS guidance of $7-$9. On a positive note, Caterpillar said that it would resume purchasing its own stock this quarter, and expects to buy back about $1B of its shares. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to clients, Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Casey predicted that Caterpillar's profitability would continue to be constrained by weak spending by its mining customers, as demand for mining equipment is likely to be anemic for the "foreseeable future" unless the global economy rebounds sharply, he believes. Casey believes that Caterpillar's results bode badly for mining equipment companies and engine makers such as Cummins (CMI) in the short term. He maintained a Market Perform rating on Caterpillar. TODAY'S PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GE (GE) fell 2% to $21.30, while the ADR shares of Caterpillar's Japanese competitor, Komatsu (KMTUY) fell 1% to $25.20, and European industrial conglomerate Ingersoll Rand (IR) fell 1% to $53.50. Caterpillar rose 2.8% to $82.70.

08:01 EDTGEGE to provide CESP with 30MW battery energy storage system
GE announced it will provide Coachella Energy Storage Partners with a 30-MW battery energy storage system as part of CESP's supply contract with the Imperial Irrigation District. Representing GE's largest energy storage project to date, the plant will be located in California's Imperial Valley, approximately 100 miles east of San Diego. The facility will aid grid flexibility and increase reliability on the IID network by providing solar ramping, frequency regulation, power balancing and black start capability for an adjacent gas turbine. GE will provide CESP with an integrated energy storage solution, configured using GE's Mark* VI plant controls, GE Brilliance MW inverters, GE Prolec transformers, medium-voltage switchgear and advanced lithium ion batteries housed in a GE purpose-built enclosure. The plant will be operated by ZGlobal, an engineering collaborator with CESP, for the first 18 months, after which control will transfer to the IID. The deal marks GE's third project using lithium ion battery technology since expanding its portfolio in recent months. GE anticipates project construction will begin early next year, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
