    Everyday...CAT lags the industrial sector-WHY?

    The dividend is higher for CAT, but can't really see at this point why you wouldn't be holding both. The ups and downs in the stock are both larger for CMI, but I think some of that is from the fact that Cat has 3 1/2 times as many shares. All in All CMI is a great investment with the government regulations forcing buyers to buy new to keep up with EPA, on a regular basis. I also consider CMI, Cats biggest competitor when it come to Industrial engines and becoming a global figure.
