Caterpillar reports end of Q1 order backlog of $16.9B

Caterpillar said at the end of the first quarter of 2019, the order backlog was $16.9B, about $300M higher than the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase was in Construction Industries and Energy & Transportation, partially offset by a decrease in Resource Industries due to higher dealer inventories.

DOWNGRADE

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Caterpillar (CAT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying the biggest risk to the bull case for Caterpillar is if its backlog growth turns negative, "and it is becoming increasingly clear that it will within this next quarter." 2. Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Andrew Strelzik saying that while he remains positive on the company's underlying fundamentals over the long term, he sees risk/reward at current levels as "less persuasive." 3. Tallgrass Energy (TGE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Michael Lapides citing the stock's recent outperformance and also warns that its Rockies Express Pipeline natural gas pipeline and Pony Express crude oil pipeline contract roll-offs pose "overhangs," even though the "volume growth out of Bakken, Niobrara, and Powder River Basin could offset this over time." 4. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Andrew Wolf citing the company's disappointing Q2 earnings and FY19 guidance announced yesterday "driven by significantly lower-than-forecasted gross margin resulting from increased pharmacy reimbursement rate pressure in the U.S." 5. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners saying she now sees limited free cash flow payments by Alcoa to upstream AWAC joint-venture partner Alumina Ltd, potential excess alumina/bauxite supply, and potential price risks from the Alunorte refinery restarting, the world's largest refinery.

Sell
Caterpillar may see downside in 2020 on slower replacement demand, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Fisher kept his Sell rating and $125 price target on Caterpillar. The analyst notes that while the findings of UBS's China Industrial team suggest a "faster than expected recovery in construction activities" along with stronger than expected sales following the Chinese New Year, the company may see a softening replacement demand in 2020 after acceleration in 2019.

Overweight
Caterpillar mining growth can offset construction declines, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Courtney Yakavonis noted that while some parts of Caterpillar's portfolio are "clearly approaching peak," she believes the consensus view is "embedding an overly draconian scenario for 2020." She expects Construction segment revenue declines of 2%-5% in 2020/2021 to be offset by growth in both Mining and the other 45% of Caterpillar's portfolio that likely remains below mid-cycle, Yakavonis tells investors. In particular, she believes the market is underappreciating the potential growth within Caterpillar's Mining business through 2022, stating that she expect 8% average revenue growth in Caterpillar's Resource division to offset Construction declines. Yakavonis raised her price target on Caterpillar shares to $165 from $160 and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Outperform
Caterpillar 'set up well' with conservatism around guidance, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jamie Cook reiterated an Outperform rating on Caterpillar and said the stock is her top pick following dealer survey results, which indicated that for 2019, 90% of dealers reiterated prior forecasts calling for demand to be up 5%. Additionally, Cook says rising commodity prices, particularly oil and copper, bode well for Caterpillar going forward. She believes Caterpillar is set up well with enough conservatism around its 2019 guidance.
