    Caterpillar says oil decline to impact producer's CapEx
    The company sees less sales to oil producers due to the decline in oil prices. Caterpillar also notes that the decline in oil will impact oil producing countries construction activity. Sees sales of construction machinery in China lower in 2015. Sees lower sales in rail sector. Comment from Q4 earnings call.

    Caterpillar guidance to be negative for shares, says Wells Fargo
    Wells Fargo says that even with low expectations going into the results, the magnitude of the Q4 miss and guidance beneath consensus is likely to be negative for Caterpillar shares. Wells also sees a negative read-through for Cummins (CMI), Deere (DE), Terex (TEX) and other machinery names.

    Caterpillar Financial reports Q4 revenue down 1% to $703M
    Fourth-quarter 2014 profit after tax was $108 million, a $50 million, or 32 percent, decrease from the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to a $23M unfavorable impact from lower average financing rates, partially offset by a $14 million favorable impact from higher average earning assets. During the fourth quarter of 2014, retail new business volume was $3.31 billion, a decrease of $330 million, or 9 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease was primarily related to lower volume in Mining, Asia and Europe, partially offset by increases in North America

    Caterpillar cites dramatic decline in oil for lower outlook
    Caterpillar shares are sharply lower in pre-market trading after the company said the relatively slow growth in the world economy and continued weakness in commodity prices—particularly oil, copper, coal and iron ore—are expected to be negative for its sales. The company projected FY15 sales and revenues in 2015 to be about $50B. The consensus forecast for FY15 was about $55B prior to the report. The company's profit outlook for 2015 is about $4.60 per share, or $4.75 per share excluding restructuring costs, versus consensus of $6.67 prior to the announcement. "The recent dramatic decline in the price of oil is the most significant reason for the year-over-year decline in our sales and revenues outlook. Current oil prices are a significant headwind for Energy & Transportation and negative for our construction business in the oil producing regions of the world. In addition, with lower prices for copper, coal and iron ore, we've reduced our expectations for sales of mining equipment. We've also lowered our expectations for construction equipment sales in China. While our market position in China has improved, 2015 expectations for the construction industry in China are lower," Caterpillar said. Caterpillar shares are down about 5% to $81.50 following the earnings report and guidance

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Sees construction spending in the U.S. in 2015 lower than prior expectations due to oil decline.

    netexplorerone,

    Yes, your are right. A profit is a profit. When you are sitting on a profit, taking a little off the table or putting in a protective stop market or stop limit is the prudent, responsible and smart thing to do.

    That is how we stay in the game to learn more. Always fun to call the bottoms and tops, but the real money is made more often consistently in between.

    Now, here is a recap of Friday's action on the three we discussed:

    First Keep in Mind:
    17,672.60 Down -141.38(0.79%)

    FRIDAY ACTION:

    SBUX $88.22 - Up 5.48(6.62%) High 88.70
    HON $102.50 - Up 3.11(3.13%) High 103.92
    SWKS $80.86 - Up 1.53(1.93%) High 82.78

    All winners on a strong down day…imagine if the market was bullish like the DAX was.

    But, we could not be because it was option expiration for many weekly options and they wanted to keep some of that premium

    Since each of these had weekly expirations and time value was down, you could have made 2 to 4 X your money on some at the right strikes.

    Good times my friend, good times.

    Happy Hunting

    Your very welcome my friend. Thank you for having an attitude of gratitude. Many people forget that there are people out there trying to really help.
    Time for the short term traders to go cash on this one.
    Look at calls on SBUX, HON or SWKS in the morning

    Stacy Rasgon, Bernstein Research: Reiterates an Underperform rating, and a $30 price target. “So, have we seen the “air pocket?” Perhaps. To spin things positively, our channel analysis (roughly updated for Q4) now suggests the company did in fact undership the end market (likely below original expectations) meaning it could have come and gone, and data center strength is somewhat making up for what appears to be a genuine PC shortfall. To apply negative spin, the magnitude of under-shipment in the 2H appears less than what would ordinarily be typical, Intel’s unit shipments still remain well above market data on a YoY basis, and account receivable DSOs increased sharply [...] It seems clear that at least some of the “air pocket” dynamics we were looking occurred last night (though supported as they were by data center upside); and as such, it is fair to say that we have a bit less conviction on the immediate air pocket-driven short call following the report. That being said, there remains uncertainty as to whether there is more to come, as well as (potentially alarming) DSO dynamics, greater demands on the the 2015 DCG trajectory, and mobile economics which remain astonishingly bad. Additionally, we expect no positive revisions as a result of the report, and valuation remains elevated. At this time, we maintain our underperform rating.”

    Cody Acree, Ascendiant Capital Markets: Reiterates a Sell rating, and a $24 price target. “Overall, it looks as though the PC market wrapped up a fairly healthy 2014, largely driven by the temporary enterprise upgrade cycle on Microsoft’s ending of Windows XP support. INTC’s PC segment sales were up 3% annually in Q4 to $8.9 billion, which we believe was below consensus estimates of $9.2 billion. As we’ve heard from many of our PC OEM contacts, it looks as though the upgrade cycle is tapering off and we expect a return of a secular declining PC market in 2015. With INTC expecting mid-single digit 2015 overall top-line growth

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
