Timmy's on fire!

April 27, 2012 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: THI.DL

Tim Horton's (THI) is hitting new 52-week highs right now, up over $57.50 today, and has been on a tear since the start of the year. This Canadian Coffee, donut and sandwich chain has been part of my holdings since I stumbled into one of their stores for a caffeine fix and a maple-glazed during a trip to Toronto in 2006 (THI was spun off from Wendy's with an IPO in March '06). I loved it! I don't know what it is about the coffee and donuts there, but I was immediately hooked.   [more]

Let me start by saying that I cannot imagine my life right now without my MacBook Pro, my iPhone and my iPad. I own AAPL and have held shares for a little more than 10 years now. But how many news stories about Apple do we REALLY need?  [more]



Why HOG Matters

April 25, 2012 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: HOG

Harley-Davidson, Inc. put out its Q1 earnings this morning, and the numbers are solid. The quick view: EPS is up 45.1%; Revenue is up 20%; Gross margin rose from 33.1% to 35.9%. Retail sales are up over 20% globally and over 25% in the US. The big news to me is that the Motor Company is increasing production and revising their guidance on shipment to 245,000 - 250,000 bikes for 2012.  [more]

Get Ready For One Helluva Ride

April 12, 2012 – Comments (9) | RELATED TICKERS: HOG

This is the time of year that a (not quite so) young motorcyclists heart starts beating a little faster...his eyes gaze longer down that open road...warmer weather means riding season is upon us! And, April means its also Earnings Season. So, if you are a Harley-Davidson enthusiast and stock owner, times could not be better. Get ready for the good times, because they are about to roll along.  [more]
