Dip-buyers thinking about buying the close today might find better prices on offer Monday as Caterpillar (CAT -3.1%) reports at 7:30 ET. Parker Hannifin (PH -7.5%) after it cut its outlook earlier today: "We were probably a little exuberant in what we thought might happen in China." CAT's CEO at a conference this week: China is "changing in front of our eyes."

    I've read in a number of places that CAT's business in China is only a small % of their business, I recall less than 5%??? Enlighten me, please.

    The CAT CEO needs to be on meds . . . one week he is uber bullish, the sky's the limit and the next week it is a totally different story.

    Oberhelman is an outspoken Romney supporter. He and many others (Steve Wynn comes to mind) will do anything to get Obama out. So could it be that Oberhelman is attempting to influence the election outcome by helping to pull down the market the day before the last debate?

    I'll always keep some CAT out of loyalty to my Dad, who retired from there, but I am unloading some shares.
