Caterpillar upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman

Goldman analyst Jerry Revich upgraded Caterpillar to Buy and raised its price target to $112 from $76 based on expectations for structurally higher margins in this cycle. The analyst believes stabilization in capex budgets suggest eventual normalization in mining equipment share of capex budgets. Following, the completion of the tier 4 product cycle, Revich said Caterpillar's R&D/sales is at 30+ year highs at 5.2% of sales, driving his view of flat to down R&D spending in a recovery, which is a 5% tailwind to incremental margins. The analyst sees $8 in mid-cycle earnings, well ahead of investor expectations, and said mutual funds are broadly underweight Caterpillar shares.

Deutsche Bank analysts Nicole DeBlase, Saree Boroditsky, and Kevin Marek initiated the U.S. Machinery group with a "cautious view."

The team's top pick is Caterpillar (CAT), and they are also positive on Oshkosh Corp (OSK) and Wabtec (WAB), all of which are Buy rated, but are negative on CNH Industrial (CNHI) and Cummins (CMI), which are Sell rated.
