Will Caterpillar Inc. Stock Recoup This Year's Losses in 2016?

CAT Chart

Given Caterpillar 's exposure to beaten-down sectors like mining and energy, it's no surprise that it's one of the worst-performing Dow stocks of the year. In fact, Caterpillar is also among the bigger losers in the heavy-machinery industry, having underperformed peers like Deere and Manitowoc . While Manitowoc gave up most of its gains during the latter half of 2015, as plunging oil prices hit demand for off-highway equipment, Deere escaped the brunt of the pain as it's primarily an agriculture-equipment company, and farm commodities have held up stronger than metals and oil.
