Wait till someone writes and article about how loaded the dealers are and how HD forces bikes on them. I don't think the bottom is in yet
So the cat is finally out of the bag! HD will be making bikes in Thailand. Another desperate move by an increasingly desperate company. Maybe they can improve sales by offering free servings of sticky rice with each bike sold? :)
Overall I think we will see upside for HOG in the short-term. Perhaps a pullback next day or so could occur I suppose but are yall also seeing a further leg higher? have you guys heard of awe-someSTOCKS. i started receiving their allerts and so far i am happy.

dealers still cant push out 16s ..they are full of bikes ...a good short I think here
looks like the downtrend has begun.
50 here we come!
I have a feeling HOG will see a pullback now. What yall think? Yo you should really check out awesomestoc-ks, they seem on point with their stocks.
Looks like reality is rearing its ugly head again for Harley. hope you took advantage of the 52 week highs of the next year that were the last two days. 50 here we come.
simply riding on market strength. and optimism. when market sells of HOG will drop twice as much percentage wise. you heard it here first.
This company as well as others are owned by money managers who are churning to keep a gain on the books. If you are positive GET OUT NOW.
Just look at the financials. They are scary, and to make things worse, the stealers can't get rid of them, the decline in parts & acc. tells me people aren't riding them. Not a good sign.
The bottom line on why Harley is failing is the price of a Harley and the pressure on the dealers to make a profit .You get low balled on a trade in and who really wants to spend over 30G on a bike. I have been riding for 40 years and have been buying used Harleys from weekend warriors that keep them for one year and sell them. You get great deals. The key for Harley to recover is to cut production ,make more custom looking stock bikes and get some unique colors the line of colors suck and enough with the denim .FTW
15 of the last newest reactions were posted by John. Unbelievable. This Board is supposed to be about Conversations not monologues.
all gains are short opportunities. sub 50 within 3 weeks If not sooner.
sell the pops!! going down down down. going down down down.
ok so anyone with a MBA or good fundemental business knowledge want to give the masses a heads up of what Harleys plan to come out with 50 new models means? anyone? ok ok, guess ill tell you. First off it means that they recognize the brand is tired, sales are dropping like a rock and basically a lot of negative factors rearing their heads. Now from a financial stand point this basically means much higher cap ex., lower profits, higher costs all around, re sourcing and re tooling of plants, marketing campains etc, and all depending on the fact that this hail mary works!! and basically a much lower stock price. thats all.
HD's key demographic: Male, Pale and Stale :)
No self respecting Millennial would buy a Harley
The brand is doomed if it does not evolve
Ask other dinosaur brands of the past...
SHORT AT WILL !
only reason to buy HOG at these levels is if you need losses on your portfolio to mitigate gains.
There a number of reasons why HD is having a tough time, here are a few: 1) Indian is a formidable competitor, especially now that they have given up the Victory brand. Deep pockets versus previous Indian trademark owners with S & S motors. 2) The "buy American" mantra doesn't fly with the younger generation. They have been using globally produced product their whole lives. When the baby boomer where younger, "made in Japan" meant cheap. The millennials look at Lexus, Acura, Honda as quality vehicles. 3) There are so many alternatives to HD products with great technology, whereas HD has been boxed in by nostalgia designs. 4) The generation that strove for a Harley, the boomers are age 56 to 72, there best MC riding days may be behind them.
