I have updated the chart at 56731. Yesterday's above average volume took the share price down to the bottom of the bull flag which coincided with a previous strong resistance zone, it is hoped that it proves as strong a support. A close below the support zone would be unfortunate. Yes Mr Drabble has done an excellent job............apart from the buybacks.

Amongst the directorate changes in today's RNS 'Ashtead confirms that Brendan Horgan has today succeeded Geoff Drabble as Chief Executive. Geoff has stepped down from the Board and will retire from the Group on 30 November 2019.' I'm sure many posters here past and present will agree that Geoff has done an amazing job, and wish him well in his retirement. Thanks Geoff! .

Hi DD, CAT currently down -2.3% @ 138 But URI currently up +1% at 139.74 So not all bad news then... Note: '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."

CAT down 2.4% as I type.Better than expected earnings but weak China economy - guess the latter is the reason for drop?.

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."
