When the financial crisis came to a boil in 2009, Caterpillar's net income and stock price both fell precipitously. But for those bold investors who bought in March 2009, you're sitting on approximately a 300% gain. If you believe that a worldwide economic recovery is under way, Caterpillar may continue to be a great investment. But if you believe that the world is teetering on the brink of another crisis, then this high-beta stock looks a little scary. Invest wisely.
