And Caterpillar recently reported first-quarter earnings. From CNBC:
“We’re close to the bottom or bottoming,” Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” He said he hopes 2016 is the last down year. Citing a bright spot, Oberhelman said: “We’ve seen actually an adjustment upwards in China in the first quarter, which is kind of nice. It’s the first time we’ve talked about that in a couple [or] three years.” “China is stimulating and they’ve added a little debt to their GDP forecast,” he said. “We’re feeling some of that in large products. Hopefully that will be sustained; something they do throughout the rest of the year.”
Caterpillar also announced the closure of five more factories last week.
