About CAT, I think up maybe 10% in two days. First thing I says to myself, "It's about the that wall." There's an incredible amount of money being wagered on company that will be close to the head of line when infrastructure public works contracts happen. Of course, that is me speculating on the speculators.

No, I do not think it's about the "wall". Caterpillar's big business is really heavy machinery used in mining. They made huge investments in the design of gigantic mining machines that did not see the anticipated demand. And now, the price of industrial metals has been going up since the election. But why?

Freeport-McMoran, a copper miner, goes up 14% since Tuesday. US Steel and Alcoa (both used to be part of the Dow 30) also jumped big.

Infrastructure stocks went up. More about the nation as a whole than a thin line along the south.

Bloody Wednesday didn't happen AFAIK. Anyway, it's Friday now. Thanks for the discussion.


Fully retired since 11/9/2009. So far, these have been the happiest, most blissful years of my entire life. That about says it all. But if you want to know more, it is available on my profile here on the ER Forum; feel free to check it out.
