    • Manitowoc (NYSE:MTW) -6.8% AH after issuing below consensus Q3 results,
    • MTW now sees Q3 revenues of ~$863M, -12.5% Y/Y and well below the $945M analyst consensus estimate, and earnings of ~$5M from $73M in Q3 2014.
    • MTW says improvement in its Foodservice business continues, but its Cranes segment continues to be hurt by a deteriorating demand environment, particularly in the Middle East and Asia; lower than expected tower and crawler crane shipments exacerbated Q3's revenue shortfall.
    • MTW expects Cranes full-year 2015 revenues to fall 15%-20% Y/Y, with operating margins in the low single-digits; it reaffirms guidance for Foodservice revenues to come in roughly flat for the full year, with operating margins in the mid-teens.

    • 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%).

    • Goldman Sachs analyst Jerry Revich cuts his view on the machinery sector to Cautious from Neutral given a continued challenging environment, and downgrades Manitowoc (MTW -2.8%), Terex (TEX -3.6%) and Navistar (NAV -1.2%) to Sell from Neutral.
    • Revich notes a challenging crane demand outlook due to a challenging outlook for commodity capital expenditure, a slowing infrastructure investment for commodity export regions, and high crane capital stock following a 10-plus year build-out cycle.
    • On NAV, the company's debt, pension, warranty and truck trade-ins are "high and rising" amid softening used truck prices and U.S. trucking rates, which could push out its margin recovery story, Revich writes.
    • Deere (DE -0.7%) and AGCO (AGCO -0.6%) are upgraded to Neutral from Sell even as the analyst is negative on the end market outlook for agriculture equipment.

    • Manitowoc (NYSE:MTW) -3.5% AH after saying it now expects flat revenue from its food service segment this year, after projecting in January that revenue from the segment would improve modestly in the mid single-digits; last year, MTW reported $1.6B in food service revenue, representing 41% of overall sales.
    • MTW also says it expects an overall Q1 pre-tax loss from continuing operations of $9.5M and Q1 revenues of $752M, down 17% Y/Y and below analyst consensus estimate of $835M in revenues; a year ago, MTW booked a pretax profit of $8.6M.
    • MTW blames the reduced outlook on two strong product rollouts that benefited food service in 2014 and reduced spending by large restaurant chains.
