J.P. Morgan sees downside risk for Joy Global

J.P. Morgan remains bearish on coal and iron ore, which does not bode well for Joy Global (JOY +0.2%), even as shares rise slightly following upbeat manufacturing data early this morning out of China.

Caterpillar’s (CAT +0.5%) mining business already has fallen from a peak of $21.2B to ~$10.3B whereas JOY’s combined businesses have fallen 32% with its OE business down 57% and its service business down 7% from the peak, the firm says.

Lack of visibility makes the question of whether JOY’s revenue has further to fall a tough call, but J.P. Morgan thinks deteriorating U.S. thermal coal conditions skew the risk to the downside.

    Sometimes you get the feeling that the banks are trying to depress the sector with all their damanging reports about future development of prices etc.

    It's a cyclical business, and it's the low side of the cycle. The analyst has a short horizon, that's their job description.
