Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) is the most notable infrastructure stock on the market, offering a wide range of products used in various infrastructure projects. The company has consistently demonstrated strong financial performance, even amid supply chain constraints and tougher macroeconomic conditions.

Caterpillar is set to be one of the major beneficiaries of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The company’s extensive distribution network and established brand reputation position the company to capitalize on the influx of construction activity expected in the U.S. and across the globe. Right now, the construction equipment market is at the end of the cycle meaning growth may be much slower in FY24. However, it is laying the foundation for accelerated growth towards the end of the decade. In Q1 FY24, revenue was largely flat due to lower sales volume. EPS was $5.75 per share, with its operating margin up 510 bps. Caterpillar’s continued margin expansion and strong FCF are positive signs as the company navigates the end of the cycle.

Dycom’s expertise in fiber optics and wireless infrastructure services makes it well-placed to benefit from the continuous rollout of 5G networks. With the proliferation of 5G and IoT, Dycom’s services remain in exceptionally high demand. Furthermore, as governments and the private sector continue to invest in broadband infrastructure, Dycom’s expertise makes it a noteworthy candidate for growth.
