13:07 EDTGE, KMTUY, IR, CMI, CAT, TXTCaterpillar 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.
