Caterpillar facing fourth straight year of falling sales, WSJ says

Caterpillar CEO Doug Oberhelman has invested heavily in production of machinery and equipment, but soon after the peak in 2012 miners began shelving equipment-buying plans as commodity prices fell and, China's growth slowed, and oil prices fell, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company now faces its fourth straight year of falling sales, the publication said. Nonetheless, Caterpillar is still the world's largest seller of construction and mining equipment and continues to gain market share, the report noted. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Evercore ISI with analyst Ken Sena citing the recent pullback in the shares. 2. Tyson Foods (TSN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Kenneth Zaslow saying he thinks that the company's "strong underlying fundamentals" should enable its fiscal 2017 profits to beat expectations, and he says that the shares are undervalued. 3. Virgin America (VA) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jamie Baker saying regulatory approval of the pending Alaska Air (ALK) takeover "remains more likely than not." 4. Cummins (CMI) was upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral and Caterpillar (CAT) was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman. 5. Carbonite (CARB) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Schwartz saying he sees "substantial upside" from current levels due to valuation and fundamentals.

Buy
Caterpillar upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Jerry Revich upgraded Caterpillar to Buy and raised its price target to $112 from $76 based on expectations for structurally higher margins in this cycle. The analyst believes stabilization in capex budgets suggest eventual normalization in mining equipment share of capex budgets. Following, the completion of the tier 4 product cycle, Revich said Caterpillar's R&D/sales is at 30+ year highs at 5.2% of sales, driving his view of flat to down R&D spending in a recovery, which is a 5% tailwind to incremental margins. The analyst sees $8 in mid-cycle earnings, well ahead of investor expectations, and said mutual funds are broadly underweight Caterpillar shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PayPal (PYPL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Canaccord with analyst Michael Graham saying he expects TPV growth to remain solid driven by Venmo and One Touch, but said these factors are well understood and reflected in estimates. 2. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Benjamin Mogil saying the stock's valuation is no longer attractive in the wake of the news that the company had decided to table its plans to sell a minority stake in Paramount. 3. Caterpillar (CAT) downgraded to Mixed from Positive at OTR Global with the firm saying third quarter global new heavy equipment orders are down 8%-11% year-over-year on weakness in North American. 4. Western Union (WU) downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he is concerned about downside risks given the company's high multiple, increased regulatory scrutiny, and the lack of improvement in its Middle East business. 5. Campbell Soup (CPB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
