Caterpillar says decline in sales driven mainly by dealer inventory decrease

The company states: "The primary driver of the decline in sales and revenues was a $1.2B movement in dealers' inventories. Dealers decreased their inventories about $400M during the third quarter of 2019, after increasing their inventories about $800 million during the third quarter of 2018." CEO Jim Umpleby says: "Our volumes declined as dealers reduced their inventories, and end-user demand, while positive, was lower than our expectations."

Caterpillar price target lowered to $149 after dealer survey at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jamie Cook said 35% of Caterpillar dealers surveyed by the firm cited risks, albeit modest, to full year estimates, while the rest reiterated prior forecasts calling for demand to be flat to up 5%. In the U.S., used pricing remains fairly stable and dealer inventory is slightly elevated in certain regions, Cook said he found. For 2020, however, the outlook is now seen as worse, projected to be down 5%-10% compared to last quarter's forecast of flat to down 5%, the analyst noted. He lowered his FY19-FY21 EPS forecasts in response to the further deterioration in the survey results and weaker industrial data more broadly, causing him to cut his price target for Caterpillar shares to $149 from $165. Cook keeps an Outperform rating on Caterpillar.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Caterpillar, sees 2020 declines for two biggest units
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Courtney Yakavonis downgraded Caterpillar to Equal Weight from Overweight with a price target of $145, down from $150. She believes that the U.S. Construction Equipment market peaked in 2019 and that Energy & Transportation, or E&T, markets will fail to re-accelerate in 2020, leading Yakavonis to now expect negative growth in the company's two largest business segments in 2020 as well as less upside in Resources. Her sales and EPS estimates are 4% and 2%, respectively, below consensus, and her updated estimates now call for a mild year-over-year earnings decline in 2020, Yakavonis tells investors.
