Time to Buy This Dow Stock?

The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys discuss Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT  ) , which saw its net income halved because of a writedown in China as well as acquisition-related accounting problems. While the writedown isn't a big deal for Caterpillar's overall business, it does invite questions about management's judgement. Andy points out that there are inherent risks in investing, and that CAT's problems serve as a reminder that you have to be diversified across industries and market caps. For the full story, be sure to check out the following video segment.

Caterpillar is the market-share leader in an industry in which size matters, and its quality products, extensive service network, and unparalleled brand strength combine to give it solid competitive advantages.
