Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT), Bucyrus (Nasdaq:BUCY) Explode Upward on Commodity Connection

Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) and Bucyrus International, Inc. (Nasdaq:BUCY) both performed strongly Thursday as the fallout from the implementation of the quantitative easing strategy of the Federal Reserve is digested by the market.

With commodities set to soar even more because of the inflation and weak U.S. dollar induced by the Fed's actions, both equipment companies should be among the stronger beneficiaries of the effort as higher prices should mean more expansion and increased purchases of equipment.

Caterpillar closed the trading day at $83.18, gaining $3.30, or 4.13 percent. Bucyrus performed even better, rising to $72.48, posting a gain of $4.82 on the day, or 7.12 percent.
