Harley-Davidson, Thor Industries, Navistar Intl., and Oshkosh Early Briefing and Review

LONDON, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

At the start of this year, lawmakers in Washington D.C. reached a deal on the fiscal cliff issue, ending a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the U.S. economy. The economic data in the first two months of 2013 also pointed to a robust recovery. However, recent economic data suggests that the recovery seen at the start of this year has stalled. This does not augur well for truck manufacturers such as Navistar International Corp. (NYSE: NAV) and Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), whose fortunes rely heavily on an improved economic outlook. 2013 is also expected to be a challenging for recreational vehicle manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson Inc. (NYSE: HOG) and Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO) as consumers are expected to scale back spending on discretionary items after some disappointing data from the labor market. Shares of all four companies slipped on Wednesday as the broad market struggled. StockCall has released free charting and technical research on these aforementioned companies.
