10:03 EDTMMM3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Plate receives AOAC-PTM approval
3M Food Safety announced today that its new 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate has received certification from the AOAC Research Instituteís Performance Tested Methods, or PTM, Program. The 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Plate was first introduced in September 2013 as an indicator test that enables the detection of yeasts and molds in as little as 48 hours, faster than conventional agar methods. The AOAC-PTM certification validates 3Mís innovative test as equivalent to or better than standard reference methods for enumerating yeast and mold within food products including yogurt, sour cream, almonds, sliced apples, frozen bread dough, ready-made pie, sandwiches, dehydrated soup, fermented salami, and frozen ground beef patties. The AOAC Research Institute bases certification of methods on independent study results demonstrating that a given method meets the claims expressed in package inserts. Specific studies performed as part of this certification involved robustness, inclusivity/exclusivity, and lot-to-lot/stability as well as comparison tests with FDA BAM and ISO reference methods.

06:03 EDTMMMU.S. Multi-Industry sector downgraded to Neutral at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry space to Neutral from Overweight saying rising headwinds could limit share upside to mid-single-digit levels in 2015, with only slight improvement in 2016. The firm believes the credit cycle is peaking and views the U.S. Dollar strength along with lower oil prices as headwinds. Concurrent with sector rating change, Barclays downgraded Dover (DOV), Grainger (GWW), Xylem (XYL) and WESCO (WCC) to Equal Weight from Overweight. It also upgraded Tyco (TYC) to Overweight from Equal Weight and Lennox (LII) to Equal Weight from Underweight, calling both defensive names in the space. The firm is also "comfortable" owning General Electric (GE), Honeywell (HON), Sensata (ST) and HD Supply (HDS) at current levels. It prefers waiting for pullbacks to buy shares of 3M (MMM).
