Whoops...someone let the HOG out!
Harley-Davidson, Inc. (HOG) is scheduled to release Q1 earnings on Wednesday (4/25), but someone over at the Motorcycle Industry Council, which compiles motorcycle sales info, got an itchy trigger finger over the weekend!
I've been predicting a big Q1 for HOG here, based on my own observations and past few quarters. Well, the MIC went ahead and spoiled the surprise by releasing that Harley's Q1 sales are up over 25% versus last year.
A big first quarter, indeed! But, what is up with the numbers coming out early? Someone at the Motorcycle Industry Council, or perhaps someone in Harley's PR department needs a very big slap across the wrist.
Regardless, the year is shaping up well for HOG.
