    Baird calls Cummins (CMI -0.6%) a Top Idea for 2013, saying commercial truck and engine makers will start out the year in low gear, but should outperform the market in the second half. CMI in particular has exposure to off-highway, power generation and emerging markets, which should equate to significant growth. It raises its price target to $132 from $119 and recommends adding to positions.

    Cummins (CMI) authorizes an additional repurchase of up to $1B in common stock. The program was approved as the company approaches completion of its current $1B share repurchase program approved by the Board in February 2011. The buyback is part of a larger program by CMI to return value to shareholders, and follows a 25% increase in the dividend announced back in July. Shares +1.4% AH.

    After initially opening higher, Cummins (CMI -1.5%) slides back in the face of an upgrade to Outperform at BMO Capital this morning. The firm cites the company's stabilizing global growth profile and pent-up demand in developed countries that should boost near-term sales. The company also ups its price target by 50%, to $120 from $79.

    More on Cummins' (CMI) Q3 results: Engine revenues -14%, components -8%, power generation -7%. Says demand has dropped sharply over the last three months; in response, it is delaying or canceling projects, flexing production at some plants, reducing discretionary expenses, and reducing workforce by 1,000-1,500 by year-end. CMI -1.2% premarket.

    Cummins' (CMI -0.7%) stock stalled yesterday after an earnings warning, but Barron's expects it to rev up again. H2 revenue could fall 15% Y/Y, but the shares look like a good deal: Based on the lowest earnings estimate among more than 20 analysts who cover the stock, shares trade at 9x 2012 earnings and 10x 2013 earnings.

    Cummins (CMI) -3.7% premarket following its sales warning last night. Deja vu all over again, this warning is nearly identical to the one given 3 months ago to the day. Shares cratered then, but were quickly back on the rise and soared the day (July 31) of the earnings release. Will history continue to repeat (earnings set for Oct. 30)?

    Investors are undaunted by the 7% drop in Q2 earnings at Cummins (CMI +6%) just weeks after the cut to its full-year revenue outlook. S&P Capital IQ added $0.25 to CMI's 2012 profit target, saying that, "despite lower revenues, CMI did a good job improving gross margins on price improvement, mix and manufacturing efficiencies," and should see strength "when revenue trends improve."
