Trader Radar - Monday December 1st

Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. An American icon, in 1915 this company’s tractors were used by the Allies in World War I. Kids and oversized kids alike idolize its massive landmovers, as the company also has a popular line of toy trucks and rugged outerwear. However, the bulldozer-maker couldn’t dig up any good news for its shareholders today, after a government report showed that manufacturing contracted the most in 26 years. Who is it?

A: On the trader radar tonight we’re watching Caterpillar ! The world’s largest maker of bulldozers was among the most active names on the NYSE today.
