[Barron’s] Harley Davidson: We Told You So…

Harley-davidson (hog): Will New Models In 2018 Drive Growth Amid Numerous Headwinds?

Originally published in Barron’s Stocks to Watch on April 18, 2017, Ben Levisohn and Bill Alpert cite Visible Alpha data for a number of analyst forecast figures for Harley Davidson.

“Wall Street generally anticipated the company’s reduced shipments, but was surprised by continued weak retail sales at its dealers, judging from the forecasts compiled by Visible Alpha, a brokerage-owned service that combines the financial models of numerous sell-side analysts. Harley dealers in the U.S. sold 6% fewer motorcycles in the March quarter. Despite Harley’s push to open new dealerships in the Asia Pacific region, unit sales there fell 9%. The analysts in Visible Alpha’s database had expected just a 1% drop in the U.S. and a 5% rise in the Asia Pacific region.”
