12:31 EDTHEES, TEXTerex hits 52-week low after cutting fiscal 2014 profit outlook
Shares of Terex (TEX), a diversified global equipment manufacturer of machinery products, are falling after the company cut its fiscal year 2014 earnings per share outlook. The company's third quarter EPS view of 55c-65c also came in far below analysts' consensus estimates of 79c. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Terex lowered its FY14 EPS view to $2.35-$2.50 from $2.50-$2.80, below analysts' consensus of $2.56. The company said the primary driver of the lowered guidance is weakness in the Cranes segment. Despite a positive trend in book-to-bill ratios over the first half of 2014, the Cranes order rate dropped significantly in July and August. Additionally, Cranes customers in developing markets are struggling to secure financing for orders scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2014. Ron DeFeo, Terex Chairman and CEO said, “We do not take lightly the need to adjust market expectations. Admittedly, the global Cranes marketplace has been challenging to forecast. During 2014, we have certainly seen more muted end markets in Cranes than we originally contemplated back in February. While we do see positive trends in certain aspects of our other segments, this has been more than offset by the recent weakness in Cranes end markets. The balance of our guidance remains intact, including our guidance for Free Cash Flow of between $200M-$250M in 2014. We also remain positive on the longer term prospects for EPS growth in our business, driven in no small part by the internal improvement initiatives underway throughout our company." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, UBS placed a Neutral rating and 12-month price target of $41 on shares of Terex. UBS believes that Terex could be gearing up to announce order cancellations. UBS said the deterioration in the Cranes segment, in addition to new questions over first half 2014 bookings, will be disappointing to investors. Despite that, UBS expects progression of projects in the Gulf Coast to drive a delayed Crane cycle, one that will result in improved order patterns in 2015 and 2016. UBS expects Terex' guidance to weigh on Manitowoc Company (MTW) and H&E Equipment Services (HEES), both of which are exposes to Crane markets. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Terex fell $2.32, or about 6.7%, to $32.38 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a 52-week low of $32.00. OTHERS TO WATCH: Terex' peers also fell, with Manitowoc Company (MTW) down over 3.3%, and H&E Equipment Services (HEES) down about 1.2%.
