Caterpillar’s sales surged in the final quarter of the year despite ongoing disruptions in the global supply chain that have hit almost every sector of the economy. Sales climbed 23% to $13.8 billion, the construction machinery company said Friday, topping Wall Street expectations of $13.36 billion. Construction industry sales rose 27%. Caterpillar $2.12 billion, or $2.69 per share, far exceeding Wall Street’s per-share expectations of $2.23. Shares rose more than 2% before the market opened.
