Caterpillar Gains on Mining, Construction Strength -- 3rd Update Caterpillar Inc. beat revenue expectations for the first quarter, thanks to higher demand for its mining and construction equipment. The machinery giant's improved sales suggest that at least some corners of the global economy may be stabilizing after signs of slower growth earlier this year. Investors had been concerned in recent quarters about demand, particularly in China, as well as higher costs. "The market's strong," Chief Executive Jim Umpleby said on a call with analysts, referring to Caterpillar's mining business. "We're ramping up production." Despite the revenue gains, Caterpillar's shares fell more than 2% Wednesday as the company's costs continued to rise. The company paid more for labor and freight in the quarter, as well as some raw material in part due to U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. Caterpillar had $70 million in costs related to tariffs in the quarter, compared with $110 million for all of last year following the implementation of those tariffs last March. Caterpillar has raised prices to offset those costs. It said prices were up just over 2 percentage points overall in the quarter from a year ago. Higher prices and volumes added $557 million to operating profit in the quarter, offsetting $375 million in higher manufacturing costs. Profit margins fell in its construction business because the increased material, labor and freight costs weren't covered by higher prices. Deerfield, Ill.-based Caterpillar on Wednesday reported sales, including revenue from financial products, of $13.47 billion for the quarter, up 5% from last year and more than the $13.27 billion analysts predicted, according to FactSet. Revenue from its mining business rose 18% in the first quarter, while construction sales were up 3%. Energy and transportation-equipment sales were flat. In the U.S. and Canada, Caterpillar's largest market, sales rose 7%. "That reflects the strong construction activity, as state and local infrastructure builds are still going up," said Andrew Bonfield, Caterpillar's financial chief, in an interview. "North America seems to be going very well."

2flatWith regards to your posting a couple of days ago about the share price rising from Match to June, is that just down to Q3 results generating positivity for Q4/Finals in June? - sorry May have been your point anyway but I'm a bit slow on the uptake lately!.Have a great Easter

"Ahhh I see, so the dip in price down to the <>1607 level was part of the masterplan? lol!" ==================================================================================== There's no need to be cruel. It was an unforeseen event. You let me off lightly. My major error was failing to buy more at 1607! It still irks me.

Good day ian "not withstanding that the 'long term' bit must have been rather involuntary :-)" ================================================================================= I wasn't expecting to buy and sell in a short time period. I would have been happy to have held longer if the runes were in favour. "I do hope Mater has not gone short AHT!" ========================================= Mater only holds paper, none of this derivative nonsense for her. I on the other hand might well have considered a short but for the margin required by the ESMA rules.

Good day bracke, Congratulations on exiting 'Maters' long term AHT hold at a profit, not withstanding that the 'long term' bit must have been rather involuntary :-) Thanks also for the rather colourful graph. In view of the progress we have made over recent weeks I wouldn't be surprised if AHT paused, or even managed a modest retrace whilst it catches its breath, but I am not minded to take any profits for the time being. Finally I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments about discourteous posts, not the first time they have been visited upon us.

Morning DD Don't Let the stalker drive you underground. Since I gave Donald the handle of Flatulent Duck, I've had two CIA men parked outside the house. Better than a private security service. Cheers

bracke is very quiet this morning, I imagine his finger is hovering over the sell button, so that he can quit the field with honour? However this may have still further to run (IMHO), up to our full year's results on 18th June... decisions, decisions! :-)

Good point Riley, and I believe that AHT have found that it takes a little while until new acquisitions are fully bedded in, and making their full contribution
