    • Citigroup analysts upgrade PACCAR (NASDAQ:PCAR) to Buy from Neutral with a $54 price target, issue a Buy rating on Wabco (NYSE:WBC) with a $110 target, and downgrade Cummins (NYSE:CMI) to Neutral from Buy with a $95 price target.
    • Citi says that while freight fundamentals remain sluggish and excess truck inventories will weigh on near-term build rates,” history suggests relative share underperformance could be diminishing, with PCAR as an earlier cycle beneficiary as sentiment shifts.
    • The firm prefers PCAR over CMI, as sustained growth in high-margin parts coupled with an ongoing rebound in western Europe "should help to drive more modest ’16 decrimentals than the bears assume.”
    • Citi says WBC stand out in the machinery group, based on its top and bottom line growth outlook for 2016 and a return on investment capital above 40%.

    • It's been a rough run for value stocks over the past few years, but the metric used to determine value - price/book - may not be the right one, says Citi's Robert Buckland. Free-cash-flow yield is better, he argues. noting this metric tracked traditional value in the 1990s and 2000s, but has easily outperformed over the past decade.
    • It's a sign of the times, he says, as FCF is a "capex-suspicious metric," and investors are concerned about the economic outlook, and cynical about capital allocation decisions of managements.
    • The list of 28 U.S. value (as defined by FCF yield) plays: BHI, VIAB, WFM, ANTM, HPQ, ABC, LBTYA, M, AAPL, CTL, XRX, LYB, CMI, ETN, MRK, VLO, CSCO, WRK, IBM, LVS, ESRX, IP, CAH, ADM, INTC, CAT, ABBV, EMN

    • Truck orders were weak in November, according to preliminary data from ACT Research.
    • Class 5 to Class 8 vehicle orders fell 26% M/M and 37% Y/Y to 35,300 units.
    • A glut of trucking inventory has crushed demand for Class 8 trucks. The level of medium-duty truck orders was more stable, but still came in lower than a year ago.

    • Morgan Stanley slashes its rating on Cummins (CMI -0.8%) to Sell after the company warned of a global slowdown in its Q3 earnings report and plunged to a new 52-week low.
    • Analyst Nicole DeBlase and her team write that while the market is finally starting to understand the cyclical headwinds Cummins faces, its future looks even rockier than the stock reflects at the present.
    • "We believe CMI is facing three major headwinds that will drive share price underperformance...the secular growth story within the Components business...the NAFTA Engine business is likely to suffer from market share erosion...and consensus forecasts do not yet reflect the full impact of a NAFTA truck industry downturn."
    • DeBlase downgraded CMI shares from Equal Weight to Underweight, and lowered her target price to $79, about 22.5% lower than Cummins' current price.

    • Select vehicle stocks are weaker after Paccar (PCAR -5.9%) fell short of revenue estimates with Q3 earnings and Cummins (CMI -8.5%) warned on demand trends in Brazil and China.
    • Paccar reported deliveries to the U.S. and Canada were up 3% during the quarter. New truck deliveries to Europe increased 11%. The story at Cummins was darker as revenue guidance was dropped.
    • There's a bit of a contagion effect as truck, heavy-duty machinery, and RV sellers such as Navistar (NAV -13.2%), Winnebago (WGO -3.5%), Thor Industries (THO -1.6%), Caterpillar (CAT -0.8%), Manitowoc (MTW -3.6%), Polaris Industries (PII -0.8%), Arctic Cat (ACAT -4.6%), and Spartan Motors (SPAR -4.3%) are all weaker.
