Its another sterling example of the failure of BDS.
Caterpillar "Caterkiller"- a manufacturer of heavy construction equipment has been the center of attention for Team Hate for quite a while. For years, in fact, there has been heavy pressure on Caterpillar to "divest " from Israel, along with pressure on various institutions to "divest" from Caterpillar. The US Campaign to end the occupation gives out free Stop Caterpillar kits, which the vast worldwide Zionist conspiracy has been utilizing well.
Kathleen Fuchs, formerly involved with the US campaign, actually proposed buying Caterpiller shares at one point, in an effort to gain a voice at the shareholders convention
With all this attention on Caterpillar, what effect to do think this has on the company's finances?
Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero.
From Today's Reuters Report
"A strong showing by Caterpillar and other U.S. industrials' shares led the market higher on Friday, putting the Dow on track for its best month since December...
Heavy machinery manufacturer Caterpillar Inc (CAT.N) climbed after reporting a fivefold increase in quarterly profit and raising its full-year forecast.
"This is another sign of how manufacturing is leading the economy," said Eli Lustgarten, senior research analyst for the industrial machinery sector at Longbow Securities in St. Louis. "We think Caterpillar is fairly valued, but you have to be impressed with what they delivered. No matter what, this will be a good year for them."
i think i'll feature a large size Caterpiller logo on my car. or maybe i can get a hold of a Caterpiller t-shirt before the next anti-Israel demo?
i was just watching the news and it looks like syria is about to turn into another libya. 40 people were shot and killed today and now Obama is calling for assad to step down. where's I.S.M, JVP or all these other "humanitarians" groups? why are they so focused on trying to put together another flotilla and nothing else? this is why i say good riddance to rachel corrie and vittorio arrigoni. and to tristan anderson along with the other leftist useful idiots (2 hikers) in iran still i say c'est la vie.
A message from the temple of Ziontology
Caterpillar Inc. reported first quarter fiscal 2011 results with net profits up 411%.
Why yes, Anna Baltzer- thats a 411 % increase in profits. So, how your "Caterkiller" campaign going?
The headline from the AP wire reads
"Strong earnings from Caterpillar drive Dow higher"
Caterpillar drove the Dow Jones industrial average higher Friday after the company reported a huge gain in first-quarter earnings.
The world's largest maker of mining and construction equipment rose 2.5 percent after its earnings increased more than five-fold. The company also raised its sales and profit forecast for the year.
The Dow added 4 percent in April, its best month since December.
The Dow rose 47.23 points Friday, or 0.4 percent, to close at 12,810.54. Caterpillar accounted for 21 points of those gains. The company's stock has soared over the past year on booming demand for its products.
Great job, Anna. Just Brilliant.
Now the LORD had said unto Abram.. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
To David H, who wrote "this is why i say good riddance to rachel corrie and vittorio arrigoni. and to tristan anderson along with the other leftist useful idiot"
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as a manor of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee
