China's Shanghai Composite Index surged more than 4 percent on Monday as authorities took steps to boost stock prices in the face of a slowing economy. History shows certain U.S. stocks are positively correlated to big up moves by China's equities.
One in particular — Caterpillar — tends to do really well.
CNBC used analytics tool Kensho to look at what happens to members of the Dow Jones Industrial Average when the Shanghai jumps 2 percent or more in a single day.
Here are the biggest winners when U.S. trading opens following a big day for China stocks:
Caterpillar's success is closely tied to global manufacturing, so as China takes steps to support its markets, that should give a boost to the company. Caterpillar shares were up 1.4 percent in premarket trading Monday.
This could be a quick trade, however. If the Chinese government's efforts don't work and Chinese stocks return to their bear market, Caterpillar and other Dow stocks could suffer.
(UPDATE: Caterpillar shares are now lower after opening higher as the broader market rolled over.)
