A margin improvement has been seen driven by better factory efficiencies, favorable geographical mix, and a combination of cost control. Caterpillar maintains a strong balance sheet, has been introducing various innovative products and is increasing its digital capabilities. The construction

Caterpillar had a fairly good 2021 as a result of volume gains and favorable pricing, sales and revenues increased in all regions and in all three primary segments. Increasing oil prices, a rise in U.S. infrastructure budgets, potential housing demand, and rising mining activity should benefit the company. Among key updates, the company announced a three-year partnership with Microsoft and Ballard to demonstrate a power system that uses large-format hydrogen fuel cells to provide backup power to
Caterpillar had a decent 2021 as the management continued to execute their long-term profitable growth strategy while meeting strong customer demand. Due to volume gains and favorable pricing, sales and revenues increased in all regions and in all three primary segments. Rising oil prices, increased infra spends, potential housing demand, and rising mining activity should benefit the company. Among key updates, Caterpillar announced a three-year partnership with Microsoft and Ballard to demonstr
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%

Today’s trading update for H1 22 highlights the difficult operating environment over the first six months of the year, particularly in Q1. Trading picked up in Q2 and is expected to continue to improve in H2 22, in part, due to the inherent seasonality of the business, but also due to some catch up in demand. Guidance is for FY22 post-tax profit to be in line with the consensus estimate of £32.2m, as a result Zeus reduces its estimate by 2.5% to £32.2m. Previous guidance of £3.0m potential impac

Last week, the UK government published the consultation paper on its Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA).
