- Joy Global (JOY +0.2%) is downgraded to Sell from Neutral with an $8 price target at UBS, which believes earnings will continue lower as commodity headwinds intensify, and that consensus opinion fails to reflect the full magnitude of the company's challenges.
- UBS says it mining and coal capex analysis indicates further declines in JOY customer spending are likely to extend into FY 2017 amid further downside to coal and other mining activity over the next two years; meanwhile, China imports are in decline as it tries to prop up domestic supply while also shifting its power consumption toward cleaner sources.

- Joy Global (NYSE:JOY) is maintained with a Sell rating with a reduced $8 stock price target, cut from $14, at Goldman Sachs, which explains that even though Joy shares have been weak for two years, it is important to keep in mind that the base metals deflation cycle remains in the early stages, coal is "structurally" losing share to natural gas and alternative energy sources, and Joy's tangible book value of $900M is higher than the stock's $1.4B market cap.
- Goldman maintains a Neutral rating on Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) with a price target lowered to $67 from a previous $72, given the company's competitive position within the challenging end market; however, CAT could benefit in 2017 as U.S. shale capex profiles begin recovering.

- The U.S. set preliminary import duties on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy and South Korea, but they are not nearly as heavy as many observers had expected, and steel company stocks (NYSEARCA:SLX) initially fell after the announcement at ~3:00.
- While the preliminary duties on China are high, as expected, duties on Korea and Italy were "much smaller than expected," while there were no duties for Taiwan, which industry followers consider “disappointing," according to Axiom Capital's Gordon Johnson.
- Axiom sees the news as a slight loss for U.S. steel industry participants, as it suggests incremental duties on outstanding trade cases will focus on China, with little emphasis on other countries China can easily use as an intermediary to get steel into the U.S.
