- The firm believes a potential stabilization in hard commodity prices, a rebound in U.S. economic surprises and a possible trough in the same for China are keys underpinning a more constructive global macro backdrop, and serve as key catalysts for improved industry fundamentals in a heavily overseas reliant industry.
- In addition to CAT and DE, the firm is favorable toward Paccar (PCAR +1.7%), Ingersoll-Rand (IR +0.6%), Stanley Black & Decker (SWK +0.9%), Wabtec (WAB +0.3%), Snap-On (SNA +1.1%) and Oshkosh (OSK -0.6%).

- Actavis (ACT -1%) should outperform following its purchase of Allergan, and FDA action dates for eluxadoline and cariprazine could also be catalysts.
- Though Occidental Petroleum is the team's top pick in energy, Anadarko (APC +1.1%) is the best short-term play on a recovery in oil prices.
- Strong fundamentals and easy year-over-year comps make AvalonBay (AVB -0.9%) a pick in apartment rentals.
- A favorable Supreme Court ruling in King vs. Burwell by the end of June provides plenty of upside possibility with little downside for HCA Holdings (HCA -0.8%).
- Also on the buy list are Ingersoll-Rand (IR -1.5%), Nvidia (NVDA +0.2%), UTX (UTX -1.1%), and Disney (DIS +0.4%).
- Making the underperform list is the Gap (GPS -2.2%) thanks to less room for cost cutting and a forecast for continued weakness in sales. Also a Q2 sell: Tesla (TSLA -1%) " lacks any real technological advantage over its competitors" says the team, seeing a significant Q1 loss, an increase in the already-high cash burn, and a questionable delivery outlook.
