Caterpillar simply is the best at what it does: making heavy earth-moving machinery. This fact has helped to keep Caterpillar the industry titan in a complex, cyclical business. Caterpillar's strong financial standing and opportunities in China all seem to point to the company as a safe bet. In addition, at this current price, they seem undervalued which helps reduce downside risk. They also have a nice dividend yield of 2.6% which should help to reduce short pressure. Even though they have had some earnings weakness lately, I believe that they can bounce back in the coming quarters and years.
