  • The acquisition of Bucyrus reflects two things; 1) Caterpillar is cashing in on demand for commodities by Emerging markets. 2) Most importantly a weaker dollar will drive commodity prices even higher. A likely side effect of Quantitative easing by the Fed is a decline in the dollar. Check out Copper vs. CAT, it’s looking pretty good.
