Accentuate the positives, ignore the negatives.
There are signs the rally in Catepillar is slowing.
Hear me out: The same lessons and disciplines are useful in both.
Let's see if the upward moves of these 10 stocks are merited.

Atlantic upgraded Caterpillar to "Neutral" from "Underweight" with a $115 price target.
And if something doesn't go well in Washington, well, look for defensives.
It is good to be sitting in for Doug Kass here on the Daily Diary as we look to end the trading week on a positive note. It is also good to see the Yankees start to win close games again after losing so many of them in the weeks leading into the All-Star break. The trade they made with the White Sox to bolster their bullpen already is paying dividends.
Thanks for the lessons, guys.
The weakening dollar is filtering down to commodities, and metals prices are rising.
The downtrodden sector offers better upside potential than financial and industrial stocks, which are trading at or near their highs.
