    • Terex (NYSE:TEX) -3.6% premarket after Manitowoc (NYSE:MTW) pre-announced lower than expected Q3 revenue following yesterday's close, pointing specifically to weakness in its cranes segment.
    • MTW said its cranes segment continues to be hurt by a deteriorating demand environment, particularly in the Middle East and Asia, and lower than expected tower and crawler crane shipments exacerbated the Q3 shortfall in revenues.
    • Other companies in the commercial equipment sector include Accuride (NYSE:ACW), Meritor (NYSE:MTOR), Deere (NYSE:DE) and Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT).
    • MTW -14.4% premarket.

    • CAT said today it is lowering its sales outlook for the year and will cut as many as 5K jobs between now and the end of 2016, and that sales and revenue could drop in 2016 for a record fourth straight year.
    • Earlier this week, CAT gave its latest update on three-month rolling sales figures, which have now declined for 33 straight months.

    • Terex (NYSE:TEX) -7.4% premarket after Finnish crane company Konecranes (OTC:KNCRF) lowered its full-year financial guidance; the two companies agreed to a merger last month.
    • Konecranes cites rapidly changing market sentiments within its Business Area Equipment segment, which are expected to lead to lower than expected deliveries during the rest of the year.
    • Konecranes now sees 2015 sales slightly higher than in 2014, and expects 2015 operating profit roughly the same as 2014; the company previously expected 2015 sales to be higher than in 2014 and 2015 operating profit to improve from 2014.

    • Terex (NYSE:TEX) +22.7% premarket in reaction to its merger with Finnish competitor Konecranes (OTC:KNCRF), but most analysts are not impressed, citing a lack of real synergies and potential European antitrust problems.
    • BofA analysts think most of the synergies would be within the materials handling and port solutions business because there is very little elsewhere, and find it odd that TEX would merge with a foreign company that is under a CEO transition.
    • Morgan Stanley says it is "completely surprised" by the deal, and notes that TEX has yet to name a CEO and the Konecranes CEO lacks experience.
    • ISI Evercore upgrades TEX to Buy with a $35 price target, up from $27.

    • Terex (NYSE:TEX) +12% AH after Bloomberg reports it is in advanced talks to merge with Finnish crane and construction machinery maker Konecranes (OTC:KNCRF), and an agreement could be announced as early as this week.
    • Konecranes, which serves manufacturing and process industries, shipyards, ports and terminals, had revenue of €~2B and net income of €74.4M in 2014.

    • 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.

    • United Rentals (URI -9.3%) sinks nearly 10% following earlier comments by CEO Michael Kneeland and other top execs at a KeyBanc conference presentation that May revenue would come in a "little softer" than previously expected.
    • When asked about utilization rates so far in May, CFO William Plummer said "May is coming in a little softer than we had in mind at that point [on the last quarter earnings call], and that's certainly something that we're focused on to try to understand what might be driving that."
    • Peer Terex (TEX -7.4%) also is sharply lower near the close.
