Q: Hello Folks:
We are interested in purchasing Mercedes Benz (New York Stock Exchange): perhaps a 5 %% weighting.
Merc stock appears having decent upside in addition to a 7% dividend.
We are considering selling perhaps some Visa, REMX, Johnson Controls, Manual Life, or reducing some energy companies etc. to raise funds for this purpose. We could also thin down big Tech however feel these Tech stocks will have some wind in their sales.
How would you compare outlook for Mercedes Benz with industrials such as John Deere, Cat, Cummins etc. We are Merc fans, however don't wish being over enthusiastic.
Thanks again for all you contribute!!!

Q: Hello Folks:
Currently we own CMI and NOC however have in the past also owned DEERE and CAT.

We have owned NOC for a couple of years and it never comes close to meeting expectations; while the other three have done well.

What do you think of swapping NOC for DEERE as there is heavy demand for farm equipment this year because of high crop prices (particularly U.S.).

How would you rank these four companies and do you feel there are other better large cap U.S. company choices in this sector?

Thanks again for this wonderful service
