Meteor Foundry Celebrates the State of Industry!

Just last month one of the biggest industrial equipment manufacturing companies in America, Caterpillar, boldly raised its 2017 forecast for both sales and revenues due to an observed robust recovery in world mining. Such enthusiastic optimism has its basis in surprisingly vigorous first-quarter sales of 9.8 billion dollars.

Following Caterpillar years of anemic performance for the company’s iconic yellow machines, sales have been up across the globe including a whopping 12% increase in Asia. This stems from stronger demand in China, in particular, with its boost in investment for infrastructure and residential projects to forestall potential economic slowdown. Citibank chimed in stating that, in 2017, mining stocks will experience momentum in earnings including the possibility that shareholders may enjoy substantial capital gifted back to them.

British Colombia also reports to have hit its highest net revenue since 2012.

This, of course, is all very positive and indicates that companies, such as Meteor Foundry, will be beneficiaries of this potential global uptick.
