It didn't take long for Wall Street analysts to begin trimming future forecasts for equipment giant Caterpillar ( CAT ) following management's gloomy outlook days ago.

This morning it was Citigroup coming out and lowering its estimates for Caterpillar through the full-year 2013. The analyst has the stock rated as a neutral, as well as a $92 price target.

It has been a volatile year for the shares, hitting all-time highs of $116 a share back in February, but have since backtracked and are down 4% YTD.
