    1. There are so many opportunities that I don't know what to buy and what to pass on. I went with CAT because of the yield on this baby. Simply Irresistible!

    1. In this market, I'll take all the luck I can get. I remember buying CAT at $80 and selling around $87. But I never thought I'd have the opportunity of getting back in at current prices.
