The heavy equipment manufacturer roared ahead, despite slowdowns in the United States and Europe and in some once-hot emerging markets. And yet, the company's management stands out for its bullishness on the fate of the global economy overall. Chairman and CEO Douglas Oberhelman recently crowed that the world economy is on track to pull "one of the strongest, broadest recoveries in years" and, as a result, that "sales opportunities are increasing." Its $65.9 billion in sales—a 9.5% increase of the previous year—seem to back him up.
