    Caterpillar Takes a Hit as Chile Riots Add to Global Uncertainty

    (Bloomberg) -- Add the riots in Chile and political issues in other parts of Latin America to troubles dimming the outlook for Caterpillar Inc.On Wednesday, the world’s largest maker of mining and construction equipment reported that its three-month rolling average sales growth in the region slowed to 4% in October, matching the January data that was the weakest since mid-2017.Latin America accounted for about 9% of Caterpillar’s revenue in 2018, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Weakness in the region accelerated the slowdown in the company’s worldwide sales growth to 3%, the worst since April 2017.“There’s the social unrest in Chile, which is an important mining market,” Larry de Maria, an analyst at William Blair, said in a telephone interview. “Argentina has a difficult political situation and Brazil hasn’t really improved the way people hoped it would improve.”The shares fell 1.3% to $144.49 on Wednesday in New York, extending this week’s decline.Last month, Caterpillar refrained from giving sales guidance, citing the uncertain global economic outlook. Last week, the company said it’s implementing layoffs of temporary workers at its plant in Michigan and across the globe, in line with its move to cut production to match demand.Security forces in Chile, the world’s largest copper producer, struggled to control riots across the capital Tuesday evening, prompting President Sebastian Pinera to call for a national agreement on peace and a new constitution.In Argentina, Alberto Fernandez’s surprise victory in a primary vote put the leftist on course for the presidency. In Brazil, the largest-ever auction of oil deposits flopped, signaling the region’s biggest economy will struggle to rely on investments to jump start weak growth.To contact the reporter on this story: Joe Deaux in New York at jdeaux@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Luzi Ann Javier at ljavier@bloomberg.net, Steven FrankFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Caterpillar's recent 'green shoots' makes BofA Merrill Lynch analyst more bullish

    Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Ross Gilardi is now more bullish on Caterpillar Inc.'s stock , citing a number of "green shoots" over the last week suggesting a bottoming in the mining, construction and agricultural equipment maker's business. Gilardi reiterated his buy rating while raising his stock price target to $165 from $154. Among the reasons to be "more constructive" on Caterpillar are favorable inventory comments from Caterpillar's largest dealer, a rebound in Class 8 orders and the resilience of the U.S. service economy, which suggests the recession in U.S. manufacturing will be shallow and short-lived. However, Gilardi acknowledged that "it will all boil down to the signing (or not) of an interim U.S.-China trade deal." The stock has slipped 0.5% since closing Monday at a 13-month high. It has rallied 15.0% year to date, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has advanced 17.9%.

    In his "No-Huddle Offense" segment of Mad Money Tuesday night and in his Real Money column, Jim Cramer said he hates markets that surge higher for no reason, but in the case of the industrials, he thinks he knows why it's happening. Cramer said when Caterpillar Inc. reported hideous earnings, shares initially plunged $6, but now they're breaking out to the upside. Cramer said jumps in stock prices like this don't come from humans.

    The 10 most FIRE-friendly places to live if you want to retire early

    Short for Financial Independence, Retire Early, the FIRE movement finds its roots in the 1992 best-seller “Your Money or Your Life” by Joe Dominguez (a Wall Street financial analyst who — you guessed it — retired at 31) and Vicki Robin (who turned a modest inheritance into an income stream that allowed her to quit work at 23). As a result, “Knoxville is an easy place to live, to raise a family, or to retire,” she says.

Today’s chart of the day looks at Cameroon’s exports to the US after Donald Trump slapped trade restrictions on the country last week, while the obvious policy watch today is whether and when the US and China will sign their phase one agreement, potentially easing the recent trade wars.
