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.

13:49 EDTHOGHarley-Davidson recalls 2015 XG500, XG750 motorcycles
Harley-Davidson is recalling certain model year 2015 XG500 and XG750 motorcycles manufactured June 11 to August 14. The fuel tank filler neck may be insufficiently flat, preventing the fuel cap from sealing properly. If the fuel cap doesn't properly seal, fuel may leak, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the motorcycle and test to see if fuel can leak from under the fuel cap. Any motorcycle that leaks fuel from under the fuel cap will have its gas tanked replaced, free of charge. The recall began in late September. Reference Link
