Caterpillar: Low-Cost Bet on Growth (Barron’s)
It’s time to re-evaluate Caterpillar in anticipation of sharper gains driven by strengthening global economies. At a time when many dividend stocks, such as telecoms and utilities, are trading at steep earnings multiples, industrial stocks with international revenue streams are suddenly attracting significant investor interest. Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) rose 3% in the previous session, sharply outperforming the 1% gain for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. Traders apparently saw robust economic data in China as good news for the mining and construction machinery maker.

Environmentalists and the Nez Perce Tribe told a federal judge Monday he was their last hope in stopping further shipments of giant oil-field equipment from winding down an Idaho mountain highway toward Canada’s tar sands. Meanwhile, a lawyer for a General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) subsidiary told U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill that the courts had no authority to interfere with the company’s second 225-foot-long, 640,000-pound water evaporator, slated to travel on U.S. Highway 12 on Sept. 18. Its first evaporator, shipped on the route in August, attracted numerous protesters, 20 of whom were arrested.
