    • Barclays analyst Robert Wertheimer begins coverage of the U.S. machinery sector with a negative view, seeing consensus estimates too high across the board with revenue for the current cycle already peaking for most of the sector.
    • The analyst expects a sharper than expected downturn for North American trucks, with another peak level eight years away; the tractor supercycle is only two years in a downturn, while the prior two supercycles saw seven consecutive down years in machinery sales, Wertheimer says.
    • Of the 15 companies in the firm's sector coverage universe, only two are rated Overweight: United Rentals (URI +1.5%) and Allison Transmission (ALSN +0.4%).
    • Started with Equal Weight ratings: Actuant (ATU -1.2%), AGCO (AGCO +1%), Caterpillar (CAT -1%), Joy Global (JOY -2.9%), Lincoln Electric (LECO -0.8%), Manitowoc (MTW -1.9%), Terex (TEX -0.7%) and WABCO (WBC -1.2%).
    • Rated Underweight: Deere (DE -0.3%), CNH Industrial (CNHI +1.5%), Cummins (CMI -0.8%), PACCAR (PCAR -1%) and Navistar (NAV -2.9%).
