Last week I suggested that we are approaching peak buybacks. In my analysis I responded to Rosenblatt Securities' Brian Reynolds strong view that 2015 will bring a re-acceleration in company share buyback activity once the earnings season is over. While I have numerous reasons for my view, my core reason is that corporations are approaching the boundaries of leverage.

More weak (February) retail dealer statistics at Caterpillar (CAT) this morning. The shares are now down by nearly $28 since the stock was added to my Best Ideas list (short) in December.
