What are analysts saying about Caterpillar stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Caterpillar stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Caterpillar's estimates have gone up ahead of its first quarter earnings release. Notably, the company has a positive record of earnings surprises in the last few quarters. Caterpillar reported a 1% drop in February sales, its narrowest decline since Dec 2012, which is a positive sign. In construction, Asia Pacific is showing promise while leading indicators of U.S. non-residential construction signal robust conditions ahead. Caterpillar expects earnings per share of $2.90 and revenues in the range of $36-$39 billion in 2017. Caterpillar continues to cut down costs to counter weak demand. In line with this, Caterpillar recently announced that it will close its Aurora plant and shift production to other sites. Also, Caterpillar will gain immensely from Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure spend plan. In the past one year, the Caterpillar stock has thus outperformed the Zacks sub industry year-to-date." (4/10/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Cost cuts continue to benefit margins despite ongoing market weakness. 4Q16 earnings, ex. adjustments, were better than expected on favorable decremental margins in Construction and E&T versus modeled expectations. With FX remaining a headwind CAT lowered the mid-point of the 2017 revenue guide to $37.5bln (prior: ~$38bln) resulting in EPS of $2.90 (Consensus: $3.06). Shares continue to trade above 30x earnings, a premium to prior cycles." (1/27/2017)
