12:02 EDTCAT, CNHI, DE, TITN, AGCOTitan Machinery falls after cutting full year profit view in half
Shares of agricultural and construction equipment retailer Titan Machinery (TITN) are falling after the company’s third quarter results missed analysts’ consensus estimate and the company slashed its fiscal 2014 earnings outlook. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Titan Machinery reported third quarter earnings per share of 27c and revenue of $588M, both of which missed analysts’ consensus estimates. The company sharply lowered its FY14 outlook, citing continuing challenges in both the agriculture and construction industries. The company cut its FY14 EPS view to 55c-75c from $1.20-$1.50, and lowered its FY14 revenue outlook to $2.15B-$2.35B from $2.25B-$2.45B. Analysts’ consensus estimates for FY14 were $1.29 and $2.35B prior to the company's report. The company said that it will take steps to reduce its inventory levels, which it expects will allow it to generate positive cash flow from operations as inventory levels decline. ANALYST REACTION: This morning in a note to investors, Wells Fargo said soft demand for farm and construction equipment will likely translate into distributors reducing inventory at minimum through next year. Wells forecasted new equipment inventory cuts for Titan of approximately 25% in Q4, and 40% in FY15. Titan's inventory reduction forecast appears negative for CNH Industrial (CNHI), said Wells, noting that Titan is a large CNH distributor. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Titan Machinery fell $1.17 or 7.33% to $14.80 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. The shares hit a new 52-week low of $14.19 earlier in the session and are down approximately 40% since the start of the year. Meanwhile, shares of CNH Industrial trading in New York were down 2.6% to $10.48. OTHERS TO WATCH: Agricultural equipment makers AGCO Corporation (AGCO) and Deere (DE), and construction equipment maker Caterpillar (CAT), all have a negative read-through from Titan's commentary, according to Wells Fargo.

Well Fargo estimates that the latest WASDE report from the USDA implies U.S. row crop farmer cash receipts declining 13% in 2013/14 from the prior year, which is a modest improvement from March's implied forecast.
