Osk looks to me like it's the best company. Osk has the best debt to asset ratio and a significant amount of cash v.s the debt that they have. Osk has been insanely consistent on their earnings with an impressive 7 quarterly beats in a row (possibly more). Terex has much better growth then osk.
I will stick with terex as I know this company better. The market could use a 800-1k point pullback and I hope to buy tex in the mid 20s.
OSK's vs TEX's financial position is similar if you look at it. Actually TEX's is better. If you consider TEX has a current ratio of over 2 to 1 and OSK is at 1.5 to 1 you would realize TEX could easily pay down its debt right now to the same level ask OSK.
Second OSK has a line of #$%$ businesses in defense, commercial there only good business is access equipment. Which is TEX's AWP business. There revenue is going to decline even into 2015 and while TEX is saying all its businesses will grow OSK is saying a lot of their businesses have to pick up defense's decline.
TEX also has tangible equity of $300M to OSK's $0.
Ya its close but there is no way OSK is the best company.
