    U.S. business borrowing for equipment falls about 26% in May - ELFA

    U.S. companies' borrowings for capital investments fell about 26% in May from a year earlier, as businesses put spending on hold amid the coronavirus crisis, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) said on Wednesday. "The downturn in the economy precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is responsible for new business softening in the equipment finance space during the month of May," ELFA Chief Executive Officer Ralph Petta said. Washington-based ELFA, which reports economic activity for the nearly $1-trillion equipment finance sector, said credit approvals totaled 68.1% in May, down from 71.7% in April.

    US STOCKS-Wall Street surges after record rise in May retail sales

    U.S. stocks jumped on Tuesday after a record rise in May retail sales revived hopes of a swift post-pandemic economic rebound, with sentiment also lifted by data showing reduced COVID-19 death rates in a trial of a generic steroid drug. A Commerce Department report showed overall retail receipts rose 17.7% last month as Americans resumed spending after weeks of lockdown, although the rebound retraces only a fraction of the historic drops in March and April. Results from a UK-led trial showed giving low doses of the generic steroid drug dexamethasone to patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 reduced death rates by around a third among those with the most severe cases of infection.

    Caterpillar Sales Drop Highlights Worry of ‘Catatonic’ Recovery

    (Bloomberg) -- Caterpillar Inc.’s machinery sales dropped by the most in 10 years last month in a sign of a deepening slump in its Americas businesses, where the company has extended plant shutdowns.Retail receipts in North America fell 36% on a rolling three-month basis, the most since January 2010, the company said in a government filing Friday. Sales in Latin America had the biggest decline since December 2016. Overall global sales dropped by the most since early 2010.The figures underscore concerns over prospects for a halting recovery at the heavy-equipment maker after coronavirus shutdowns dented the profit outlooks for miners and construction companies. The data comes on the heels of a report that the Deerfield, Illinois-based company is keeping some of its plants across North and South America shut for longer than expected.BMO Capital Markets analyst Joel Tiss earlier downgraded Caterpillar’s stock to the equivalent of a hold, citing a “catatonic recovery.” Near-term recovery of the company’s end markets will be challenged by customers’ budgetary constraints and stretched government finances, Tiss said.“These factors will likely overwhelm the myriad internal improvements occurring at the company, at least for the next few years,” Tiss said in the note.Chief Executive Officer Jim Umpleby took the helm at the start of 2017 with a focus on boosting efficiency and profit margins, and expanding services to help offset the traditionally cyclical nature of the bellwether producer’s markets. In an earnings call in April, Umpleby departed from his normally staid commentary to warn analysts of a “severe and chaotic” impact from the crisis.Caterpillar’s stock is down about 16% this year. Shares rose more than 2% in New York on Friday morning as the broader equity markets advanced.

    Caterpillar Extending Plant Closures With Virus Sapping Demand

    (Bloomberg) -- Caterpillar Inc. is keeping some of its plants shut for longer than expected with demand languishing, in a sign that the economic recovery is progressing slowly.Among Caterpillar’s operations across the Americas, its Curitiba Brazil and Campo Largo BCP Brazil plants are idled until the middle of June, while parts of its Piracicaba Brazil facilities aren’t slated to reopen until June 30, according to a document seen by Bloomberg. Additionally, the company had more than 10 facilities shuttered at some point during May, the document shows.The shutdowns give a peek inside the impact the global coronavirus pandemic is having on the company, considered a bellwether for parts of the economy. Caterpillar’s plants are typically operating at this time of year, according to a person with direct knowledge of the operations who asked not to be identified because the information isn’t public. The second quarter traditionally is Caterpillar’s highest factory output as it ramps up for seasonal demand.“It’s reasonable to assume that they’re limiting their production schedules to align demand that’s still very muted,” Matt Arnold, an analyst at Edward Jones & Co., said in a telephone interview. “In general, we know that demand across construction and mining markets markets and of course energy is still in a depressed state and as a result they’re going to have to have production schedules that are kind of aligned with that.”Facilities ShutMany of the facilities being idled are for two weeks or longer, according to the document. Curitiba is shut from June 1 to June 15, Piracicaba’s motor grader line is down from May 18 to June 30 while the medium wheel loader, medium track-type tractor and soil asphalt and pneumatic compactor line is idled from June 1 to June 30. The North Little Rock facility in Arkansas was closed from May 18 until June 8, and the BCP Clayton and BCP Stanford facilities were shut from May 18 to May 26.Caterpillar spokeswoman Kate Kenny referred Bloomberg to the company’s previous public statements.Chief Executive Officer Jim Umpleby in April departed from his normally staid commentary on earnings calls to warn analysts of a “severe and chaotic” impact from the crisis. CFO Andrew Bonfield at the time made it clear that the company isn’t necessarily saying the second quarter for sure would be the trough, saying it is “going to take a little while to recover.”During the same call with analysts, Umpleby said it had suspended operations at “certain” facilities due to supply-chain constraints, weak customer demand and government mandates -- referring to the lockdowns. He also warned that the company sometimes has facility closures to align production with customer demand, even when the world isn’t going through a pandemic.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
