Jim Cramer: Caterpillar Stock Is a 'Push'

Katherine Ross

Caterpillar posted earnings before the bell on Tuesday. 

The company declined to provide a 2020 profit guidance and cautioned the coronavirus pandemic would continue to impact its operations for the remainder of the year.

Caterpillar said earnings for the three months ending in March were pegged at $1.98 per share, down 42.5% from the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, Caterpillar earned $1.60 per share, which missed the Street consensus forecast by 9 cents per share.

Revenues slumped 21% from last year to $10.64 billion, missing analysts' estimates of $10.9 billion. 

"We remain committed to the safety, health and well-being of our employees around the world, and I am proud of our employees and dealers for their dedication to our customers, their communities and each other," said CEO Jim Umpleby. "Our employees deliver products and services that enable our customers to provide critical infrastructure essential to support society during the COVID-19 pandemic."
