Caterpillar had a strong third quarter result as the management continues to strive to minimize the impact of supply chain difficulties and the inflationary environment. The rising prices of commodities, metals, and oil are bound to benefit the company as they would result in increased mining activity. Also, the recent $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed in the U.S. on November 5, 2021 is expected to drive a large scale consumption of Caterpillar’s equipment by infra players. While its Asia

Caterpillar had a strong quarterly result but the impact of inflationary pressures played spoilsport against the company’s margins. Despite delivering an all-around beat backed by a robust demand for its equipment, particularly in the construction and mining industries, the company witnessed a margin contraction on account of rising commodity prices. The management openly communicated that it might expect a further margin contraction in the third quarter of the year. The company witnessed a 40%

Trading through Q3 and into Q4 to date has proven to be strong and not blunted by any of the headwinds that management held caution against at the time of reporting its Interims (on 1 December). Taylor Maxwell, and within that its timber merchanting division, has outperformed expectations and consequently management is now guiding to FY22E EBITDA of at least £32m, 13% ahead of our previous estimate and a baseline for FY23E from which it can still feel confident of growing profits by 20% plus.

Oil capped its fifth week of gains on continued signs of robust demand and strained crude supplies that have taken prices to seven-year highs.
Futures in New York edged lower on Friday, just above $85 a barrel, but were still up 1.6% for the week. Oil neared $88 earlier this week for its highest level since 2014 as geopolitical tensions threatened greater supply outages alongside strong demand numbers, despite the omicron variant.

We believe the narrative for the UK equity market remains very good. Some inflation appears embedded in markets and economic growth seems robust. We saw investors show caution into the end of 2021 and so have cash to deploy in our view. This has been corroborated by investor feedback we’ve had already this year. The UK equity market is materially cheaper than global equities on a relative basis so asset allocators have to be looking at UK equities while UK 2022 GDP growth is likely the best of t
