    One last thing

    There are thousands of people who work for CAT in Peoria and thousands more who work for all the CAT dealers that own this stock. Wouldn't you think that someone would defend this stock price after my post? No, because they know what I said is right. This stock together with this economy is toast, but they are hoping to keep the snow job going. Tell me something you CAT people, where are the huge profits to justify this price per share?

    • No, it's because nobody takes wackos like you seriously. Don't assume that because no one replies that they agree with you. It's just the opposite, no one thinks it's worth the effort to post. I just don't have anything else to do this AM.

      Q1 profit $1.2B on $13B in sales. Annualized that's $5B profit. $7.57/share x 15 PE = $113.

      IGNORE.

      • Hey, whatever. The insiders are selling; take a look. It takes over 4B just to make the payroll, but mgmnt has no worries as they are given the stock at $38-40. There's always the token shares purchased inside to keep this ride going. Look at the history in the charts. Don't just look at a one year chart, but multi year levels and you will see that this is blown way out of range. I do like this stock and buy often, but not at these levels. I've done my homework on this one. No one ever lost money taking their profits and would be wise to do so at these levels.
