Arctic Cat, Polaris rise after analyst says shares attractive

Winter vehicle makers Arctic Cat (ACAT) and Polaris Industries (PII) are rising after KeyBanc analyst Scott Hamann wrote that demand for the company's products has increased in some regions of the country. Moreover, the increase in demand has occurred in regions that are more important to the companies, Hamann wrote in a note to investors earlier today after speaking with dealers. Concerns about weak snowfall and potentially slowing snow plow sales have created an attractive risk/reward ratio in the stocks, the analyst added. In fact, plow demand appears to be solid, and Arctic Cat and Polaris are both gaining share in the market, wrote Hamann, who maintained Buy ratings on Arctic Cat and Polaris. In early trading, Arctic Cat rose 2.65% to $37.97, while Polaris added 0.66% to $80.90
