In trading on Thursday, shares of Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) entered into overbought territory, changing hands as high as $100.49 per share. We define overbought territory using the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which is a technical analysis indicator used to measure momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be overbought if the RSI reading rises above 70. In the case of Caterpillar Inc., the RSI reading has hit 70.5 by comparison, the RSI reading for the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is presently 70.0.

Investors could look at CAT's 70.5 reading as a sign that the recent heavy buying is overdue to take a break, which could bring a pullback in the stock. The chart below shows the one year performance of CAT shares:
