    Toro (TTC -4.7%) shares are downgraded by Raymond James ahead of Thursday's FQ3 report: "Recent results from competitors/suppliers have been hurt by the late-season drought, and while we believe Toro will post better relative results, we do not believe its business will be totally unscathed... now is a good time to take profits."

    Toro  (TTC +7.5%) pops on a strong FQ2 report earlier today. Net earnings rose 14% Y/Y as unseasonably warm weather and an accelerated Spring helped boost sales of grounds-care equipment. The company also raises its FY12 forecast, now expecting an EPS of approximately $4.30, in the lower end of its previously announced guidance range of $4.30 - $4.35, but still better than Street estimates of $4.29. The company also expects revenue growth of 7% - 8% Y/Y.
