10:35 EDTMOT, DE, AGU, CAT, POT, MTWFarm equipment stocks likely to have neutral reaction to WASDE, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes that agricultural equipment stocks are likely to have a neutral reaction to the April 2012 World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report. Supply/demand balance expectations were mostly tightened and implied that U.S. farm cash receipts increased slightly, but these factors were somewhat offset by higher than expected corn stocks, Wells Fargo said. Meanwhile, the USDA made no changes to its U.S. corn outlook, the firm added.

09:28 EDTDELongbow recommends avoiding Deere following global survey
Longbow's global agriculture survey shows that equipment demand has taken "another step down" in Q2 following a 27.1% decline in the Ag & Turf segment in Q1 amid commodity price weakness. The firm believes a recovery in commodity pricing is likely to be pushed out "several" planting cycles. It keeps its below consensus estimates for Deere and recommends not holding the stock. Longbow has an Underperform rating on the name with a $72 price target. Deere was downgraded this morning at JPMorgan to Underweight.

10:14 EDTCATAnalyst says buy Caterpillar, Joy Global before mining bottoms
The shares of Joy Global (JOY) and Caterpillar (CAT) are climbing after research firm Baird analyst Mircea Dobre upgraded both names, citing a potential bottom in commodity prices. Both companies develop mining equipment. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Baird's Dobre upgraded Joy Global and Caterpillar to Outperform from Market Perform. There are signs that the worst of the downturn in commodity prices may have passed, the analyst stated. Additionally, the shares of both Caterpillar and Joy Global historically bottom three to five quarters before mining equipment shipments rebound, according to Dobre. Consequently, investors who wait for evidence of a turnaround in the companies' mining equipment bookings may be late to the party, the analyst warned. Both stocks have now underperformed the market by amounts that are similar to their worst underperfomance during the early 1980s commodity bust, according to Dobre, who raised the price target on Caterpillar to $101 from $80 and on Joy Global to $62 from $45. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Joy Global climbed nearly 4% to $43.64 and Caterpillar rose 1.5% to $88.60.
