Upcoming Economic Outlook - Report Highlights Caterpillar Inc. and Moody's Corporation

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - Today, announced new reports highlighting Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) and Moody's Corporation (NYSE: MCO). Gain market insight with full analysis and research downloads available at

With markets in correction mode, investors are looking to quantify an accurate model, weighing positives and negatives of the months ahead. Upcoming negative pressures include China's slowdown, the European recession, the end of the Fed's Operation Twist stimulus program, continued geopolitical risks, election uncertainty, and potential 2013 budget bombshell of tax hikes and spending cuts. Meanwhile, positive offsets are driven by central banks (particularly China) cutting rather than hiking rates, deceleration in fuel and food prices, increase in consumer sentiment and resulting retail sales, signs of improvement in housing sales and new strength in auto production schedules.

Despite the current situation, our team continues to identify high momentum situations with growth potential -- there remains strong opportunity within careful discretion.
