Caterpillar Stock Chart to July 17 2015

You can see in the chart below that Caterpillar stock in 2015 is back in ranges seen in 2012 and 2013. The stock took off in 2014 when investors felt that the economies of the world were picking up. This would mean the demand for Caterpillar equipment would rise and the company would do better. However instead, the stock fell back and has been stuck in a downtrend since the middle of summer in 2014. This is because the world’s economies actually did not improve but instead are simply muddling along. The demand for Caterpillar equipment therefore is low which is matched by the company stock staying depressed. You can also see that the stock has  longer-term support at the $80 valuation which has not been broken through yet.
