    Trade war fears ebb as U.S., China agree to continue talks

    BEIJING/WASHINGTON, May 21 (Reuters) - Washington and Beijing both claimed victory on Monday as the world's two largest economies stepped back from the brink of a global trade war and agreed to hold further talks to boost U.S. exports to China. Over the weekend, the two sides pledged to keep talking about how China could import more energy and agricultural commodities from the United States so as to narrow the $335 billion annual U.S. goods and services trade deficit with China, although details and a firm timeline were thin.

    Deere Shares May Be Jumping Ahead of Themselves

    Both Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere (DE) recently reported earnings but the stocks moved in very different directions, with Caterpillar falling while Deere rose. Melius Research's Rob Wertheimer takes a look at the heavy-machinery stocks today, writing that while it may be easy to see why bulls are so enthusiastic about Deere, the shares may have gotten ahead of themselves. The fact that Deere rose after reporting an earnings miss--putting more pressure on the back half of the year--"shows the market's desire to own the shares," the analyst writes.

    Caterpillar's stock surges to 3-month high, leads Dow gainers

    Shares of Caterpillar Inc. surged 3.0% in morning trade Monday, enough to pace the 29 of 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average components that are gaining ground, as optimism over a trade deal with China helped fuel a broad market rally. Caterpillar's stock has now recovered everything it has lost since investors started fearing a trade war on Feb. 16, when the U.S. threatened tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Tariffs on steel would raise raw material costs for Caterpillar, while retaliatory measures could also hurt given China is Caterpillar's third-largest market, behind the U.S. and Canada, according to FactSet.

    Honeywell’s Short Interest the Lowest in 2018: What That Suggests

    Short interest data from April 30 show that Honeywell’s short interest has fallen to its lowest level in 2018, indicating the prevailing positive sentiments for the stock.

    Go Long Deere & Company As Wall Street Frets One Tepid Earnings Report

    Deere & Company (NYSE:DE) reported earnings, and the knee-jerk reaction from Wall Street was to sell the stock down 2% on a headline, though it has since solidly reversed course. Management missed on the top and bottom line, so at face value it looked like a bad quarter for the equipment maker. Coming into this earnings report, Deere stock has lagged other equipment makers like Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) year-to-date.

    Caterpillar Stock Could Test 2018 Lows

    Dow component Caterpillar Inc. ( CAT) reversed on Tuesday after failing to reach the high posted when April 24 earnings triggered an opening rally followed by a 17-point slide. In turn, this bearish price action could presage a decline to multi-month lows that also completes the last leg of a broad topping pattern, raising the odds for a breakdown that ends the equipment giant's long-term uptrend. Caterpillar needs cordial relations with China to continue on the fast track, but trade tensions are taking their toll.
