05:51 EDTNAVBarclays starts U.S. Machinery space with Negative view
Barclays analyst Robert Wertheimer rolled out coverage of the U.S. Machinery space with a Negative view. Of the fifteen companies he initiated in the sector, only two are Overweight rated. Wertheimer started five names at Underweight, his firm's equivalent of a sell. Consensus estimates are too high across the board with revenue for this cycle already peaking for most of machinery, the analyst told investors last night in a research note. He sees a sharper downturn for North American trucks than the consensus expects, with another peak level eight years away. And the tractor supercycle is only two years in a downturn, while the prior two supercycles saw seven consecutive down years in machinery sales, Wertheimer adds. Allison Transmission (ALSN) and United Rentals (URI) are the analyst's Overweight-rated stocks in the sector. Deere (DE), CNH Industrial (CNHI), Cummins (CMI), PACCAR (PCAR) and Navistar (NAV) are his Underweight rated names. Wertheimer also started with Equal Weight ratings shares of Actuant (ATU), AGCO (AGCO), Caterpillar (CAT), Joy Global (JOY), Lincoln Electric (LECO), Manitowoc (MTW), Terex (TEX) and WABCO (WBC).

14:52 EDTNAVNavistar slides after VW scandal makes potential takeover unlikely
Shares of truck maker Navistar (NAV) have been under pressure since the start of the Volkswagen (VLKAY) emissions probe. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Navistar, which is based in the U.S., has long been seen as a possible target of Volkswagen. Navistar would give Volkswagen a footing in the U.S commercial truck market and allow it to better compete with Daimler (DDAIF) and Volvo (VOLVY) in that sector. On March 5, shares of Navistar jumped after The Deal's senior transportation writer Lou Whiteman wrote that the company could become a target for Volkswagen, Daimler or PACCAR (PCAR). Earlier today, Dow Jones wrote that Volkswagen's growing scandal over diesel engine emissions will likely distract the German automaker's interest in Navistar. PRICE ACTION: Since September 18, when the EPA first announced it was issuing a notice of violation to Volkswagen, shares of Navistar are down approximately 19%. Navistar is at a 52-week low, down over 8% to $13.70 in afternoon trading.

12:22 EDTGISConAgra falls after Q1 revenue significantly misses estimates
Shares of packaged food company ConAgra (CAG) are falling after the company's first quarter revenue fell significantly short of analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, ConAgra reported Q1 adjusted earnings per share of 45c, ahead of the consensus of 40c, and revenue of $2.79B, well short of expectations of $3.67B. ConAgra reported Q1 Consumer Foods sales of approximately $1.7B and Commercial Foods segment sales of $1.1B. The divestiture process for the private label operations is proceeding as planned, and the company expects to have an announcement on the outcome of this process later this fall. The company will assess opportunities to increase the dividend after it is further along with the strategic plan outlined at the end of fiscal 2015. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead to Q2, the company expects diluted EPS, adjusted for items impacting comparability, to be approximately in line with year-ago comparable amounts, compared to consensus of 63c. Despite strong fundamentals and expectations for continued margin expansion, comparable operating profits for the Consumer Foods segment in the fiscal second quarter are expected to be negatively impacted by foreign exchange, as well as a planned increase in marketing investment. Profits for the Commercial Foods segment are expected to post an increase in profitability year-over-year in the fiscal second quarter. Expected contribution from the private label operations, which are now in discontinued operations, is included in this guidance. On its Q1 conference call, ConAgra said its private brands divestiture was "on track" and there was "a lot of interest" in it. Management noted that they were "aggressively" pursuing maximizing actions and making "good progress" on margin improvement efforts. They said they were committed to an investment grade rating, marketing investments will increase throughout the year, and results from the last six months indicate positivity going forward. They said the company took a $1.95B charge on private label business in Q1, but remain confident that they will realize a tax benefit from the capital loss. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, ConAgra fell $2.39, or about 5.64%, to $40.01 on heavy trading volume. Despite the pull back, the shares have gained approximately 19% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the packaged foods space include Boulder Brands (BDBD), down 0.5%, Pinnacle Foods (PF), down 2.5%, General Mills (GIS), up 0.6%, JM Smucker (SJM), down 3%, and TreeHouse Foods (THS), down 0.4%.
