Neutral
Caterpillar outlook remains strong on rising demand, says Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Adam Uhlman is keeping his Neutral rating on Caterpillar with a positive outlook for the company. Uhlman says that the dealer feedback from Europe suggests the company and its peers are raising their build rates this year and now sees demand rising about 10% vs. prior survey-driven forecast of mid-single-digits. The analyst also points to surveys from Asia suggesting "accelerating demand across mining, construction equipment, aftermarket, and power generation". Uhlman adds that the price increases of 1%-3% in January across Asia and Europe was met with little resistance from end users.

Overweight
Caterpillar initiated with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Courtney Yakavonis initiated coverage of the Construction Machinery space, starting Caterpillar with an Overweight rating and $185 price target. Construction machinery stocks have outperformed since 2016, but a recovery in the global economy and key end markets leads Yakavonis to believe that there could be further to go, she tells investors. The firm's most recent dealer survey indicates points to inventories having been "right-sized" compared to 2016 and Caterpillar's strong top line momentum, further margin expansion opportunities, and attractive valuation make it her top pick in the space, she said.

Buy
Competition analysis solidifies Caterpillar's market leadership, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Fisher said an analysis of the construction equipment market shows that Caterpillar is by far the market leader. They have the highest capacity share, the best market quality, and low competitive overlap, said Fisher, who reiterated his Buy rating and $190 price target on Caterpillar shares.
