Thinking of trading CATERPILLAR?

    1. Caterpillar is a cyclical stock and its prospects will vary in line with conditions in its end markets. That said, with cyclicals, it's often the case that the variance in its earnings from a relatively small part of revenue can be the swing factor in determining the company's prospects. 2. The interesting thing from an end-market perspective is that mining commodity and energy prices have, so far this year, moved in the right direction to support Caterpillar's positive outlook. 3. Meanwhile, the construction industries segment is expected to benefit from ongoing growth in the U.S. economy and what CEO Jim Umpleby described as "stable local funding for infrastructure development."

Founded in 1925, Caterpillar designs, develops, engineers, manufactures, markets and sells machinery, engines, financial products and insurance. It trades in the NYSE and it is a component of three indexes, DJIA, S&P 100 and S&P 500. Caterpillar was ranked #65 on the Fortune 500 list[8] and #238 on the Global Fortune 500 list. The company also licenses and markets a line of clothing and workwear boots under its Caterpillar name. Caterpillar machinery is recognizable by its trademark "Caterpillar Yellow" livery and the "CAT" logo. The company was an answer to the tracktor problem in the 1890s and 1900, where tractors weight sometimes around 450 kg and sunk into the earth. Caterpillar has managed since 1951 to 2011, an incredible amount of 37 mergers and acquisitions. The company has grown in size and revenue since then, doubling up from $20B to $45B in 2001 and 2017 respectively. This has, of course, not been a straight road to success, Caterpillar has also encountered complicated situations such as the Clean Air Act. In July 1999, Caterpillar and five other diesel engine manufacturers signed a consent decree. Among other companies, Caterpillar violated the act by selling engines with defeat devices, so that they could trick the emission tests, managing to sell engines that emit up to triple the permissible level of smog-forming nitrogen oxides (NOx).

1. The profitability of the resources industries and energy and transportation segments is the key to Caterpillar meeting its full-year 2019 outlook for profit per share of $12. 06-$13. 06, representing a growth of 7.5% to 16.4% on last year's $11.22. 2. It won't be completely smooth sailing in 2019. Caterpillar still needs growth from construction industries, and there are some concerns here. For example, construction industries retail sales to the Asia/Pacific region were down 10%, 2%, and 1% in January, February, and March, and Bonfield admitted that "very" competitive pricing had had an impact on the company's market share in China. Thus, Caterpillar expects industry sales to be up in China for the full year but the company's sales to be flat -- a particular worry when considering the potential for further friction in the U.S./China trade dispute. 3. On the cost side, lower steel prices should come through in the second half and some potential cost savings from an easing of bottlenecks in its supply chain are also expected.
