A Dow Powerhouse Bets On Natural Gas

Today, industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discusses Dow heavyweight Caterpillar's recent agreement with Westport Innovations to develop natural-gas-powered engines for mining trucks and locomotives.

In the video below, Brendan also discusses Caterpillar's recent pullback and whether he thinks it's a good buying opportunity.
