A 41% Q1 plunge in nationwide excavator sales is taking a toll on Sany Heavy Industry - China's largest maker of the equipment - even as it takes market share from the likes of CAT. The company's VP warns the sluggish construction market may force the firm to cut its sales target (+41% Y/Y).

    (FXI) is the problem growth is slowing but China will ease back on
    interest and start growing again in the next quarter. We are still long
    term bulls on (CAT) though short term bears. APD

    CAT expects to sell farm equipment in US to make up for China. CAT is a great company and has been for many years. My father owned stock in CAT about 60 years ago. I only wish I had more money to buy such a great buying opportunity. CAT is a stock I can own for life.

    The DONKEY and the ELEPHANT all talk about tackling unemployment and create jobs by picking up infrastructure projects, if he is nominated the PRESIDENT in November. Do you think the CAT will be a beneficiary?
