10:59 EDTBC, HOGHarley slides, Brunswick advances after ratings changes
Harley-Davidson (HOG) is falling and Brunswick (BC) is advancing after KeyBanc downgraded the shares of the motorcycle maker and upgraded the stock of the boat maker. WHAT'S NEW: There have been indications of "sluggish" motorcycle sales trends so far this year, KeyBanc analyst Brett Andress wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The trends appear to be "essentially flat," the analyst stated. Andress believes that Harley-Davidson performed better than the industry as a whole this quarter, as he estimates that the company's sales rose by low single digit percentage levels. Still, that is below the motorcycle maker's full-year guidance for a 7%-9% increase in shipments, the analyst noted. He downgraded his rating on the shares to Hold from Buy. Conversely, Brunswick should benefit from "modest, sustained momentum" in overall boat sales and a strong rebound in sales of its flagship SeaRay boats, the analyst believes. Andress cited positive registration data and anecdotes from retailers as two reasons for his optimism about the SeaRay line. Sales of the boats could double by 2017 to about $600M, he estimated. However, supply constraints may keep newer versions of the SeaRay line from coming on the market until the second half of 2014 or the first half of next year, so 2014 may be more of a transitional year for Brunswick, Andress warned. However, Brunswick's stock more adequately reflects this dynamic following its recent decline, according to the analyst, who upgraded the shares to Buy from Hold and set a $55 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Harley-Davidson dropped 1.2% to $69.85 and Brunswick gained 2% to $41.64.
