    Weekly Stock ListOur rating on the Industrial sector is Over-Weight. After enduring the challenges of the pandemic, the cyclical stocks in the Industrial sector appear well-positioned within the changing political environment. Specifically, we believe that Industrial stocks will benefit from enhanced infrastructure investment and more-lenient trade policies during the Biden administration. The Industrial sector accounts for 8% of S&P 500 market capitalization. Over the past five years, the weighting has ranged from 7% to 12%. We think that investors should allocate 9%-10% of their diversified portfolios to the group. The sector includes industries such as transportation, aerospace & defense, heavy machinery, and electrical equipment. The sector is underperforming the market thus far in 2021, with a gain of 13.5%. It also underperformed in 2020, with a gain of 9.0%, and slightly underperformed in 2019, with a gain of 26.8%. Here are some of our top picks, all of which are rated BUY at Argus.

Daniel Foelber (Caterpillar): The stage was set for Caterpillar to soar in 2021: Widespread vaccinations, an economic recovery, low interest rates, and an industrial sector that was looking to get back on its feet compounded into a tightly coiled spring. Yet supply-chain issues, rising raw material costs, and a pandemic that isn't going away have dampened Caterpillar's real results.
