After wiping out nearly 40% of its market cap in 2015, Cummins stock is showing visible signs of a turnaround this year. The stock was up 15% year-to-date, as of this writing, recovering at a faster pace than rival Caterpillar which is up only 6% so far this year after losing about 30% value in 2015.

So is the worst over for Cummins? While Caterpillar's fate depends a great deal on commodities thanks to its substantial exposure to cyclical industries like mining and oil and gas, Cummins' fortunes are tied more closely to the transportation sector, which hasn't been hit as hard. In fact, Cummins' recent earnings report gave interesting insight into its market share, margins, and shareholder returns which should give the bulls ample reasons to cheer.
