Check out which companies are making headlines after the bell Monday:

Caterpillar - The heavy-equipment maker updated its 2015 earnings forecast to between $12 a share and $18 a share and revenue to between $80 billion and $100 billion.

"Just as we have done in the past, Caterpillar is ready to act if we enter a recession," said CEO Doug Oberhelman in a press release. "We don't think it's likely, but if it happens, we are prepared to react and would expect to remain attractively profitable and to maintain our dividend."
