A bell weather cyclical stock. He doesn't expect to see strong global economic growth, but steady and plodding. Consumer spending is driving the global economy, so this may not have enough to propel it much higher.

A uber-cyclical stock into mining, roads, forestry, etc. The price of copper has broken out to the upside, which may be a signal for higher commodity prices and for this stock. He would consider buying here.

It's too early to buy this. The trade war needs to be resolved, since China is so important to CAT. He doesn't own CAT because of its cyclical nature.

Make heavy equipment. Decelerating demand. Too cyclical to buy for where we are in the cycle. Very well managed.

Pays a good 3.5% yield with a 10x PE, which are likely depressed by the global slowdown and the trade war, but the slowdown will turn. Buy this if you have a 3-5-year horizon. Governments need to start spending on infrastructure to get economies going. Also look at CMI-N.

A cyclical stock whose customers are into mining and forestry. Not the best time to be entering into this space.

It's under heavy pressure from an overhang from the resources slump and, before, the steel tarffis. There are better opportunities elsewhere.

(A Top Pick May 24/18, Down 20%) This is a highly cyclical name. Looking at slowing global growth and he prefers more defensive names. This is an industrial name and prefers Waste Management in this space. He expects CAT just to move sideways.

Call option? CAT should rally if the China-US trade deal is signed. If you sell a call option on CAT, go 5-8% out. A deal is only partially priced in now.

He's watching it. On their conference call Q1 there was a major misunderstanding about the guidance they gave; no, they haven't hit their peak for the year. Rather they reached the high point on their margin percentage. The street reacted negatively and sold. It was astonishing. A fine company, but he's not sure this is the best company in this space and there's a lot of competition here.

A big name but has a lot of debt. Big US company. A perfect target for tariffs. Trades at reach valuations. He would be cautious.

Just bought it this month. The global economy is accelerating, and sales are doing well. There is a recovery in commodity prices and that is helping them. Trading at 14 times earnings with a 20% growth rate. (Analysts’ price target is $172.32)

(A Top Pick Feb 13’17, Down 64.73%) He thought it had down legs. Global growth was greater than expected. They restructured so much that their earnings grew. It is still a cyclical industry. He could see being short of this stock.

AAPL-Q vs. CAT-N. CAT-N is machinery and has been a hero. They both really pulled back. CAT-N had a 22% earnings beat last quarter. AAPL-Q is really the iPhone X or 10 story. They missed on units. It is not a lost leader but the concept applies. This will be used like the iPad with augmented reality. You are in a very expensive period of time – an air pocket. AAPL-Q is a great company, however.
